Climate-Controlled Storage & More: A Guide To The Different Types Of Storage Units

1. Indoor Self-Storage

There are two main types of storage units: indoor and outdoor. An outdoor storage unit acts as a spacious garage for possessions that aren’t affected by weather exposure. Indoor storage units are housed inside a storage facility. They’re a secure way to store larger, more valuable items like furniture.

2. Drive-Up Self-Storage

climate-controlled storageDrive-up self-storage is an outdoor storage unit that resembles a large garage. You can “drive up” to your unit on the facility lot instead of having to park and go inside the facility. Drive-up storage is a convenient option for loading items into and out of your car.

3. Climate-Controlled Storage

Climate-controlled storage units are usually located within an indoor facility. They control the temperature inside the units (typically between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit) to avoid damage to items that may be affected by extreme temperatures, such as wood or leather furniture, photographs, clothing, or books.

If you’re seeking a self-storage unit for your valuable possessions, American Self Storage offers a highly trained staff to assist you with your needs. Their secure, controlled-access facilities ensure no one is able to access your possessions but you. To learn more, visit their website
