Things To Consider When Thinking About Summer Storage


July 25th, 2019

Summer is a popular time to begin renting a storage unit. Whether you’re moving to a new home, storing your boat, or just freeing up some space, a storage unit is the perfect solution. Summer months are a great time to use a storage unit, but there are some important things to consider about summer storage. Before you throw all of your extra belongings into a storage unit, read on as Marina View Storage provides some summer storage advice!


Temperatures can get intense in an outdoor storage unit. The summer sun can generate a lot of heat, and you will want to be sure your belongings are safe and secure. Depending on where you live, the heat can be far more extreme. So be sure that you are not storing any delicate items that could become damaged. Items like electronics, leather furniture, and delicate garments should be stored in a cooler environment.


Humidity plays a significant factor in the preservation of certain types of stored items. Items such as electronics, books, antiques, and wooden furniture can be damaged when humidity levels vary. Without controlled humidity levels, you run the risk of mildew and mold. One of the most common problems renters encounter when humidity levels are not taken into consideration is the warping of wooden furniture. These delicate pieces absorb the humidity, causing them to swell and ruining the piece completely!


During the summer months, you will want to access your belongings easily. This is especially true if you are storing something like a car, boat, or seasonal gear. An outdoor storage unit makes accessing items simple and easy. All you need to do now is organize your storage unit for easy access!

Rental Terms

It’s important to understand your rental terms, whatever the season! Many storage rentals are based on a month-to-month contract, but you can choose longer rental terms if you prefer. Understanding your rental terms will help you save time and money. Some storage facilities offer promotions for summer renters, college students, or veterans. So make sure to ask about any deals!
