Why should I rent a storage unit?
San Diego self storage can provide much-needed space at an affordable rate. For people moving into the area, the high cost of living often means downsizing. Renting a storage unit is one great way to live comfortably in your new home or apartment without having to sacrifice your belongings.
Storage units also provide a convenient place to store sporting and recreational equipment. Beach gear, surfboards, and paddleboards can all be stored safely away while you’re not using them.
In San Diego, boat storage is another popular reason to use storage. Storing these large vehicles at home isn’t easy. They take up a lot of space, and they’re at risk of damage or theft. Renting boat storage is a great way to take the stress out of boat ownership so that you view your boat as something to enjoy rather than something to stress about.
For students at San Diego State University, University of California at San Diego, Point Loma Nazarene University, and other colleges, storing the contents of a dorm room locally is much easier than packing it all up and lugging it home over summer break.
What features should I look for in a San Diego storage unit?
With the heat and occasional humidity in San Diego, it’s a good idea to look for a storage unit that offers climate control, especially if you’re storing sensitive items like antiques, wine, electronics, or paper documents. Climate-controlled storage units maintain a consistent temperature and humidity level so that your items aren’t damaged.
If you’re storing valuables or a classic car, you might want some extra security. Indoor units, video surveillance, gated access, individually-alarmed units, and on-site management are all storage features that can protect your valuables from theft.
Other helpful features include:
- drive-up access and wide-drive aisles
- RV/boat storage
- extended hours or 24-hour access
Will I be able to access my things once they’re in storage?
Accessibility to your belongings will vary by facility. Some are gated and only have specific access hours during the day. Others allow renters to access units 24 hours a day. Pay close attention to the access hours set by each facility—especially if you’ll need to get to your items more often!
