Frequently Asked Questions
What is Climate-Controlled Storage?
Climate control means that the temperature of the unit is controlled and monitored by the storage facility. This lowers the risk of damages that can be caused by extreme temperatures to our customer’s belongings. Beyond Self Storage maintains a level temperature which provides an optimum environment in which to store items. Our teams do daily temperature and humidity readings to ensure optimum conditions are maintained.

What Can I Store in my Unit?
You can store almost anything in your unit! As storage unit rental is common during a move, many people store household items, such as furniture, boxes, and appliances, in their units.

Do I Need Renter’s Insurance for a Storage Unit?
Yes, we require proof of insurance to rent a storage unit.

There are many benefits to using self storage insurance and you may even be able to save on the premium of insuring your items!
