Are you considering renting a storage unit? If so, maybe you’re a first-time renter looking to have a better understanding of the rental process. Or, maybe you have used a storage unit in the past but have never rented with Lighthouse Self Storage. In order to best answer your questions, we compiled a list of some questions we commonly get asked. Check them out below!

How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Storage Unit?

The price of the storage unit varies with the size of the storage unit, type of storage unit and which floor the storage unit is on. For example, storage units on the first floor will generally cost more than storage units on an upper floor. Additionally, a standard storage unit will be less expensive than a climate controlled storage unit.

How Important is Climate Controlled Storage?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not as simple as the last question. It really depends on what you are storing. Climate controlled storage is necessary when storing items that are sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. A climate controlled storage unit can help to protect your items from the California and Florida heat.

Do I Need Climate Controlled Storage?

Going along with the question above, the answer to this question depends on what you are storing. If you are storing leather or wooden furniture, appliances, documents, antiques and other temperature sensitive items, it is important to use a climate controlled storage unit. Before storing an item that you believe may be sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, talk to the storage professionals onsite at your storage facility.
