What is Climate-Controlled Storage?
A climate-controlled storage unit is a space that maintains a temperature between 55-85 degrees, year-round. Climate-controlled storage facilities are indoors to protect your items from weather elements.
If you plan on storing items that are susceptible to damage from moisture, we recommend climate-control.

What are the Benefits of Climate Controlled Storage?
It Can Prevent Costly Damages
A climate-controlled storage unit is usually a little more expensive up-front, but those few dollars can save you thousands in the long-run. Traditional self-storage is not climate-controlled, leaving your items vulnerable to absorbing moisture which can cause mold and mildew.
Protection Against Weather Elements
We all know how unpredictable the weather can be. It can be sunny and 75 degrees one week, and 32 degrees and snowing the next. If you live in a city that experiences fluctuating temperature changes, climate-controlled storage is the safest option when searching for self-storage.
