Severe weather, hot or cold, can damage belongings left in a storage unit. With climate controlled storage units, the temperature is maintained at about 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’re looking to store any valuables that will potentially be damaged in any of the following ways, a climate controlled unit is what you should be looking for.
- Warping, cracking, or splitting of wooden furniture
- Rusting, yellowing, or corrosion of any metals
- Molding or mildew
By keeping the storage unit at a steady temperature, it will prevent any of these from happening to your valuables.
A few things to consider before storing are:
- The geographical location of where you will be storing.
- The value of what you are storing.
- How long you wish to store your belongings.
By taking these three things into consideration, you should have a better idea of whether or not you need a climate controlled unit.

Whether you are packing for a vacation, moving out, or even just moving into a storage, creating space is essential. Packing can be viewed as an art form. In the words of Jerry Seinfeld, “packing is no different than leading men into battle; you’ve gotta know the strengths and weaknesses of every soldier in that platoon. From a collapsible toothbrush to a pair of ordinary black socks.” Take a look at these helpful packing tips in order to get the most out of your storage space.
- Organize- Before you go right ahead packing things away, you’re going to want to sort and organize you’re belongings by size, shape, and durability.
- BOXES- Boxes are going to be your best friend when packing. They can fit a lot of your valuables, and are easily portable. You need to be sure to label these boxes too so your things are easy to find when you need them. Mark things that need to be handled delicately as FRAGILE. Stacking boxes can help create more space too. Remember the rule of thumb; the heavier boxes go on the bottom!
- Take Inventory- Consider writing down a list of all the things you will be packing. In case something is ever missing and you are not sure if it is packed away in storage or not, you can always go back to that list and double check. Try to sort your list by box. Numbering boxes can be helpful too.
- Fill boxes in layers- Put the heavy stuff on the bottom, medium weight next, and the lightest items up top. Use crushed paper or pieces of cardboard between the layers as dividers.
- Throw away what you don’t NEED- There isn’t a better time to clean out what you don’t want anymore than when you are moving or packing things away. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to create a donation pile for those in need.
- Designate the essentials- Make sure the things you’re going to need or is frequently going to me moved in an out of your unit are in the front and easily accessible. The last thing you’re going to want to do is realize your favorite jacket is all the way in the back and have to reorganize your entire unit!

In the last 10 years, the storage industry has been growing mainly due to an increase in the need of more space. In the words of belated comedian George Carlin, “can you believe there is an entire industry based on keeping an eye on YOUR stuff!?” But before you go ahead and put your stuff in storage, there are a few things you need to know. In no particular order, here are some helpful tips for finding the storage facility that best fits your needs.
Location- Finding a storage facility that is conveniently located near you is very important. This makes it hassle free whenever you want move something in or out of your unit. You don’t want to have to travel long distances when you just remember you left your grandmother’s sweater she gave you last Christmas and she’s coming over for a surprise visit!
Sizes Available- Always make sure to call ahead and make sure that the size you need is still available. Depending on the facility, certain sizes tend to fill up fast. It is always good to call ahead to make sure so you don’t end up wasting a trip.
Climate Controlled- If you are storing something that you want to have protected from cold or heat, some facilities do offer climate control. Even if that facility is not as convenient to get to, it still might be your best option because at the end of the day, your going to want your things protected.
Read Over The Contract- Before you rent anywhere you must sign a contract. As with any, it’s good to read over the contract to make sure you are not getting swindled or backed into a corner.
Price- Possibly the most obvious of the list, price is a key factor and it never hurts to shop around and compare prices. However, the cheapest may not always be your best bet. Check online for reviews of the facility and try your best to avoid places who advertise cheap prices and hit you with hidden fees.
Service/quality- Maybe the most important factor. It never hurts to stop in and talk to employees. Get their opinion on their facility, see how they treat their customers, and even get to know them (considering they will be the ones in charge of your valuables). Also, go around and check out the facility, outside units and inside empty ones, just to get a feel for how clean they keep their facility. How well they take care of their location a lot of the times reflects how well they will take care of you.
If it’s that time you have to move, you are probably thinking to yourself, “how fast and efficient can I do this so it can just be over with!” Here are a few tips we would like to offer you in case you are moving any time in the future.
Plan your move
As with almost anything, you want to always plan ahead. Everything from which moving company you should call to how many boxes you think you will need is essential if you want to make this process as painless as possible. Unexpected problems are the worst!
Keep receipts and records of spending
It’s always good to keep a record of everything you buy. It is easy to get caught up in all the expenses of moving and even easier to overspend. Be sure you have receipts handy so when the move is complete, you can get some extra cash back you didn’t need to spend, and who doesn’t like extra cash? (Other than that baby from the Captital One card commercials)
Get estimates, referrals, and references for moving companies or truck rental businesses
Sometimes the name brand companies aren’t always the best fit for your move. Do a little research and figure out what moving company fits YOUR needs for where you are going, how soon you need to get there, and how much you are willing to spend.
Purchase moving insurance
You never know what could happen. The last thing you need is that expensive China that’s been passed down through the family to be pieces of broken glass when you open the box labeled “Fragile”.
Have tools to break down beds, furniture, and appliances
This one may be a “no brainer”, but you are going to want to take apart that huge bed frame if you want to make packing a better experience. Also, it’s much easier than when you have to bring the whole bed up 3 flights of stairs and then realize you need to take it apart on the side walk. Trust me, you’ll thank me.
Keep inventory list
As tedious as it might sound, you’re going to want to do this. The last thing you need is something to go missing and be searching back and forth from your previous home to your new home, and EVERYWHERE in between.
Purchase storage unit before day of move
Although here we would let you rent a unit on the spot, it is always good to call ahead to make sure we have the right unit to fit your needs and we can reserve that right away for you.
Calculate the size of unit needed
see http://www.whyselfstorage.net/manchester-nh-storage-unit-sizes/ < There you will find an approximate size for what you will be storing.
Provide location, directions, and access information for movers
The last thing you want is to be stuck in that truck longer than you have to, or worse, find out all of your stuff is halfway across the country!
Keep cleaning supplies on hand – dusters, broom, mop
Accidents happen. Plus, it’s always good to make sure your beautiful things don’t end up on a dirty floor.
Have plenty of fluids and energy bars on hand
More than likely, this process is going to be an exhausting one. It’s good to have snacks on hand before you end up losing your mind.
Print packing labels to save time writing labels by hand
Budget may not allow this, but it’s definitely a time saver for sure.

Although we allow you to store almost anything at any of our five locations in New Hampshire, here are a few things that we just can’t let you store away. You may be surprised at what we’ve been asked.
Example #1 Your Destructive Dog!
Although we love dogs, you can’t store away your dog whenever they tear through the garbage, leave muddy prints all around the house, or do “you know what” on the carpet. As much as you might want to store them away for a bit, we just can’t accept it. We suggest that you just continue to love and keep your dog no matter how destructive he or she may act. Besides, you wouldn’t want your dog ruining all your valuables in your unit would you!?
Example #2 Your Annoying Little Sibling.
We all know that siblings know what it takes to really get under your skin. Your impulsive attitude may tell you that the best way to deal with your annoying sibling would be to just send them off to another family, or better yet, your storage unit! Unfortunately, I have to tell you that we do not accept little brothers or sisters to be stored in our units. Your best bet is to just deal with them. If you haven’t already, you’ll learn to love them, eventually. (No sons or daughters either)
Example #3 Your Ex.
This may be the toughest one. Whether they cheated on you, broke up with you, or just won’t take NO for an answer, an idea that may come to mind is to drag them by the ear, lock them in your unit, and throw away the key. This may be a good short term plan, long term however, you would probably have a pretty seriously lawsuit on your hands… . Besides, everyone deserves a second chance right? Okay, maybe not everyone. Anyways, hear it from us first, you CAN’T store your ex away.
So there you have it, just a few things for now that you CAN’T store away. So if you’re reading this, please do not attempt to store these things here. We do not accept bribes, either.
