So, you need to move. Wonderful. You need storage for your stuff. Stop! There is more to plain old storage units than you thought. Basic self storage is sufficient for a lot of different household, business, or yard items. However, climate controlled storage is necessary and highly recommended for sensitive items like antiques, musical instruments, electronics, or fine art. If you are going to be placing items like these in storage, you’ll want to consider all the advantages of a climate controlled unit, a humidity controlled unit, or a unit with both features.
The Benefits of Climate Control
If you have been entrusted with putting mattresses and lawnmowers into storage for reasons X, Y, and Z, then a regular storage unit is perfectly fine. But, if you have grandma’s wedding gown from the Mexican Revolution, that one Renoir painting that you are sure came from Europe during World War II, or are a musician whose bread and butter depends on your beautiful instrument playing perfectly, then climate control storage is the best thing for you.
Climate control storage combats the notorious El Paso sun with insulated walls and cooling units set to each renter’s exact needs. Ordinary storage units are metal boxes used for keeping personal belongings out of the sun and other natural elements. If you need long term storage, like soldiers deploying overseas, then there is no one to open that storage unit for a quick breather. Why would you risk your portrait’s moustache peeling off or that silk wedding gown threading in the heat?
How to Choose the Right Size Unit
Many people look at the mass of boxes they need to place into storage, look at the storage lot, look at the boxes, and then at the storage lot again before shrugging and simply picking one that seems like it can get it all in there. While some people have that hidden talent for perfect eyeball measurements, many do not, and end up paying for extra space that could be used for storing something else. They may end up having to get another storage unit because it could not all squeeze into one.
This is where the experts at AAA Self Storage come in. Having seen it all and stored it all, AAA Self Storage staff can help you find as many or as few storage units as necessary to keep your valuables safe. They can even help you decide what exactly should go into a climate control unit and what temperature would be ideal for the time of year.
