Summer Storage

Welcome back to another edition of the Albuquerque Self-Storage blog, where we deliver all the news, info, and tips fit to self-store! This month we’re going to go over a number of different things ranging from some summer storage tips, moving advice (naturally), and maybe end with some fun stuff like looking at some of the most expensive homes on the market.

While the summer is heating up quite spectacularly, you may find yourself in need of a storage unit for a variety of reasons. Here are some things to keep in mind during the summer months.

  • As the temps go up, so does storage unit demand. Granted it’s July now so this may be a bit late to tell you, but the rush is in full swing. Meaning prices can go up as well. Shop smart!
  • Keep in mind a few features to look for in a summer storage unit. Drive up access can make storage unit ownership much more convenient. In the absurdly high temps, a climate controlled unit is almost a must unless you’re storing nothing that can be damaged by the temperature. But, if you’re storing clothing, electronics, wooden furniture and a whole lot more, you’ll want to look for climate control.
  • Security, as always, is an important consideration for a unit, especially if you are planning on storing for the summer and being away on vacation. Having someone on premises to make sure everything is above board can go a long way to keep you feeling secure.

People store all sorts of stuff during the summer, usually winter or other seasonal items like snow blowers, shovels, holiday decorations, or even motorized vehicles like snowmobiles. The other big customer base of summer storage are college folks who need to move out of their dorm or apartment for the few months. Regardless of the reason for the need, self-storage can give you the freedom to live your life exactly as you please, and give you the peace of mind that nothing will happen to your belongings while you’re off in Italy or simply not wanting to stare at your snowmobile in the garage.
