Looking to declutter and want more space in your home?
Moving and need a place to store your items during the transition?
Maybe you are a business and need to find a place for files or overstock?
Maybe your car just wants its rightful place in the garage back?
Well, have no fear – Christy your local self-storage-oligist is here! These are all things I hear every day at my job. Moving, no matter the reason, can be a stressful time for anyone. I am here to take on that stress for you.
What Storage is Right for Me?
Now onto the next step – What type of storage do you need? There are a few types out there – Air cooled, Temperature controlled (Air Conditioned) and the garage style outside storage units; whether they be drive up or hallway. This can be a bit confusing at times. You want to make sure that your belongings are kept not only safe and secure, but intact and unaltered.
With the Air cooled units, it is important to remember that there will be some humidity, so items like light and delicate fabrics, vinyl records and some metals will do just fine in this type of environment.
Air conditioning will help to remove the moisture from the air and you can store items such as artwork, photos and some paper products, wood furniture or instruments and electronics.
The regular storage units we offer are perfect for clothing, misc. toys and seasonal items, some sports equipment and patio type furnishings. But keep in mind – though we have the leaks, fire, smoke and mice and bugs under control, we can’t stop the dust (But our amazing mattress and dust covers can!).
Need to Store for a Long Time?
Another thing to consider is the length of time you need to store. If you only need storage for a month or two in a ‘winter’ month in Arizona, rest assured the regular units will be just fine. However, during the heat of summer when the temperatures are soaring and the heat index is unbearable, the Air conditioned or Air Cooled units may be the best option for your treasured belongings – and yourself while moving them!
What Size Storage Do I Need?
“And what about the size Christy?” Well, this too has a few variables. If you need to stow and go for a short period and return only to empty it out, we have great sizes to fill your needs with nice high ceilings for extra stacking room. If it may be a longer period, you may want the extra room to walk through or sort your belongings or be better able to grab that one thing you need with ease.
Whichever it may be – I will make sure it is the perfect size. So stop on down anytime, take a tour and meet some
