The Steps to Take Before You Move Into Climate-Controlled Storage
Maybe you’re moving. Maybe you’re getting rid of old stuff. Maybe your girlfriend is sick and tired of seeing all of those shoes in your closet. If you live nearby a climate control storage center you are in luck. A climate controlled storage center offers you the space you wished you had at a price you can afford.
The primary use of climate controlled storage is to hold things you don’t need, but still want. This can be trickier than it sounds, however. Old clothes, for example, you should sort through item by item. Some articles you may want to discard, i.e. donate. Others you haven’t worn for a while may still fit and so you don’t want to throw them away. Maybe they’re from your college days and in another five years they’ll be in fashion again. There’s no telling. In that case, climate controlled storage units are perfect for when you want to go to a costume party and wear that old leather jacket with fringe – you have it just a quick drive away.
Other great things to store in climate control storage are old collections. Stamps, baseball cards, coins – anything that’s precious and valuable, but too big to fit into a safety deposit box will make a good addition to your storage. Climate control storage helps against too much moisture, which can be trouble for a fine stamp collection. And with serious security, such as high barbed wire gates, personal locks and on-site managers, the chances of thieves stealing your coins are pretty low.
Other items you may want to put into storage include transportation like bikes or boats, which may not fit in your garage during the colder months. When you have a boat in your garage, it can be pretty inconvenient, especially when you’re used to putting your cars inside. Different sized can accommodate large boats as well as a few boxes. Specialty items like artwork and speaker systems are also good to store because they need some humidity in order to survive the winter and not dry or crack.
Probably the best thing about climate control storage is its convenience. You can drive over anytime and open up your unit to get whatever it is you need from it. And you can return it whenever you want too, maybe dropping off other stuff you’d forgotten you don’t need in the process. So think about a storage unit and clean up your life.
