Most people have items in and around the house that aren’t actually in use or items that don’t fit in their current living space. Removing this clutter from your living space can have physical as well as psychological benefits, but not all items can be thrown away or kept. A self-storage unit is a great option that gives you the opportunity to keep those items in a safe and secure location until you need to access them again. We at StorAmerica offer storage units in California that are specially designed to suit your particular needs.
The two main types of self-storage offered are drive-up storage and indoor storage. Drive-up storage units are outdoor units that resemble garages. Drive-up storage is easy to access, and because the doors are so large, it can be used to store bulky and large items that would otherwise be difficult to move in and out of storage. Since you can drive right up to the storage space, many tenants use drive-up storage as a second garage and use it to store hardware or gardening items. The main disadvantage of drive-up storage is that because the units are outside and typically aren’t temperature controlled, they are unsuitable for the storage of delicate items, or items that are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes. In California, self-storage of this type tends to heat up greatly during the summer, and some items may melt or warp due to the heat.
Indoor storage is in the building itself, and sizes can vary from the size of a closet to the size of a large room. This type of storage is usually slightly more difficult to access, especially with larger, bulkier items. However, many California storage units that are indoors are climate controlled, meaning that they are kept at a constant temperature and humidity. Also, since there is an additional barrier to entry into the indoor storage space, indoor units tend to be slightly safer than drive-in units. This makes indoor storage units the best option for fragile or precious items that can be damaged by fluctuations in heat and humidity or that require an additional layer of security.
