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

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.
