When deciding on which storage unit facility to rent from, common factors to consider are location, price, security, and size, but another factor that may be important in keeping your belongings secure is climate controlled storage.

Climate controlled storage standards keep temperature levels stable—with temperatures ranging from 50 to 85 degrees.

Many belongings do just fine in traditional storage units, however, some items may not tolerate a fluctuating environment. Items such as furniture, wood, media, electronics, fabric, metal, and paper do not tolerate the changing temperatures, and belong in a climate controlled storage unit.

A good rule of thumb for deciding on whether or not you need a climate controlled storage unit is: if you don’t want your belongings to endure temperatures over 90 degrees or below 32 degrees, put them in climate controlled storage.

No matter what you are wanting to keep secure in one of our state of the art storage units, be sure to first consult with a Freeman Mini Storage team member.
