5 Reasons Why Indoor Storage Units Are for You

Americans love their stuff. So why get rid of it when you can conveniently keep in a storage unit? They offer so many features.

Where to store your items is another matter. Since storage units have become increasingly popular over the years, you have options. But that doesn’t mean the decision-making process is any easier.

Which is why we have 5 reasons why you should store your items in indoor storage units. If you love your stuff as much as we do, you’ll have to read this.

1. Indoor Storage Units Means Your Stuff is Safe From the Elements

Nothing can destroy your precious belongings more quickly than exposing them to the elements. Exposure to the cold, heat, wind, or rain can do a lot of damage.

Water is the one element that can cause the most damage to your stuff. So storing your items in an indoor unit will ensure that if a flood happens your stuff will still be safe and dry.

But water isn’t the only element that will do some serious damage to your stuff. Warping, chemical deterioration, cracking, mildew, and mold can all ruin or permanently damage your belongings. A climate controlled environment quickly eliminates concerns over what you can and can’t store.

Also, who wants to spend time in their storage unit freezing in the winter? It makes looking for holiday items miserable and might make you less likely to fetch them.

The same goes for hunting down your beach stuff in the summer. No one wants to feel as though they’re going to pass out from the heat while looking for your favorite items.

2. Indoor Storage Units Are Located in Convenient Locations

Outdoor storage units are commonly found outside of cities or towns. That’s because they take up a lot of space since typically the units are next to one another rather than built on top of each other.

However, indoor storage units are more commonly found wherever you might need them. That’s because they can build upwards and have the units contained in a vertical rather than horizontal space.

The further away you end up storing your items, the harder it will be for you to access and use what you have in storage. So if you’re planning on putting anything into storage, always consider the fact that you’re going to have to travel there first.

It’s best to store items in the storage unit that you don’t need regular access to. Seasonal items are usually the easiest to store in a unit because you’ll only need to visit a few times a year. You can also return certain seasonal items to storage at the same time you’re pulling out the new season.

3. Indoor Storage Units Treat for Pests

Bug infestations are a really great way to have your stored items ruined. Plus, bugs are really gross and no one wants to deal with them.

A bug infestation can also be hazardous to your health. So it’s really important that you prepare your storage items properly.

Think of what could happen if you open up your outdoor storage unit and you discover a nest of hornets has been squatting there for some time. Not only is this a huge problem to take care of, you could be seriously injured if you’re stung.

Another problem is bugs like moths love setting up shop in your storage unit. While moths aren’t harmful to your health, they sure will love chewing holes into your clothing.

But moths and hornets aren’t the only bugs you can typically find in an untreated storage unit. So make sure your storage facility has a pest control plan in place.

4. Indoor Storage Units Keep Your Items Safe from Thieves

An outdoor storage unit typically is locked with a gate and then your own storage lock. But that doesn’t it’s not relatively easy for a thief to gain entry into a storage unit and steal your stuff.

Indoor storage units provide better security for your items. You’ll be able to tell if you’ve found the right storage facility by how well they maintain the building and surrounding area.

If it’s clean of debris and litter and the building looks maintained, you can be sure that security is one of their priorities. Also, check to see that the facility uses cameras and is well lit. Not only for the safety of your items, but also for your personal safety when you’re rummaging around in your unit.

Lastly, you may want to keep looking if the storage facility allows entrance without an appointment 24/7. That could mean their security isn’t as tight as it should be. While you want flexible hours, you also want to keep your stuff and yourself safe.

5. Indoor Storage Units Offer Flexibility

Not everyone has the same amount of stuff they need to store. Nor will everyone have the same kind of stuff they want to store.

Some people might want to store something large like a boat or a car. Others may be in the process of moving and need to store the bulk of their home in a storage facility until they’re ready to move.

Whatever the reason you need to store items, indoor storage units provide a lot of flexibility with the sizes of units as well as their rates. You should also ask if about how flexible they are regarding the length of time you want to store your items for.

That’s because sometimes you need to store your items long term. Like when you’re downsizing but still require the use of many of your items that you used in your former home.

Other times, you need to store items seasonally. Like storing your boat during the winter.

A good storage facility should be able and willing to work both with your needs in terms of storage space and the length of time you need to store the items for.

  1. I like your point that warping, cracking, mildew, mold, or pests won’t be a problem with climate controlled storage. While I’m studying abroad, I plan to store most of my possessions. I have a few instruments that can’t handle extreme temperatures, so climate controlled storage seems like the only reasonable option.

  2. Thanks for helping me learn more about indoor storage units. I appreciate that you mentioned to make sure that you find a facility that has some kind of pest control plan. My cousin has been thinking of getting a storage unit, so this information could help her out in the future if she needs to look for one.

  3. I really like your point that indoor storage units are usually in convenient locations. When I was in college, I had to put a lot of my things in a storage unit 10 minutes outside of town and it was really inconvenient. When I need one again, I’ll definitely be getting a storage unit that’s closer to my home. Great article!

  4. It’s comforting to know that indoor storage facilities can be flexible in both size and rates. I’ll be trying to use one soon since my family will be moving and we’ll need a place to store our stuff. Thanks for the helpful article!
