5 Star Storage | Dec 21, 2018

With winter right around the corner, keeping your valuables in pristine condition is more important than ever. Whether it’s a boat, antiques, or expensive gear, storing your valuables in a climate controlled storage unit is vital.

At Five Star Storage, we’re going to show you why storing your items during the winter in a climate controlled storage unit is the best decision you’ll make all year. Not only will it keep your prized possessions safe, but it will also keep them in a space that was designed to keep them in optimal condition.

What to Store in a Climate Controlled Storage Unit?

Storing your belongings can seem daunting, especially if you’re unsure of where to start. Wondering what to store in a climate controlled storage unit? A good rule of thumb is to choose items that aren’t used on a daily basis and that would undergo damage without a climate-controlled environment.

These items will differ from every owner, but generally include:

  • Antique wooden furniture
  • Important documents or photographs
  • Collectibles
  • Musical instruments
  • Artwork
  • Clothing

If you want your valuables to look and feel as they did when you first put them into storage, a climate controlled unit is the way to go. Climate control will allow your valuables to stay in an environment that keeps humidity and temperature at the desired setting at all times.

How to Store Your Valuables

A few key storage tips will help you keep your valued possessions the best they can be while in storage. Storing your personal belongings in a climate controlled storage unit can feel overwhelming to some, especially if the unit isn’t large. If you are storing large items like furniture, wrap in a protective cover that will prevent any damage or wear.

For smaller items that require storage, consider storing in high-quality boxes. As you move boxes or furniture into your storage unit, create a makeshift aisle. Building a small walkway in your storage unit will allow you to access items as needed.

Relax This Holiday Season

During the winter months, temperatures can drop, and humidity can fluctuate from rain or snow. Because of these often unpredictable changes, what better gift to give yourself or a family member than a climate controlled storage unit? At Five Star Storage, we want you to have peace of mind knowing your prized possessions are staying in pristine condition while in storage.
