4 Tips for Renting a Non-Climate Controlled Storage Unit in Winter

Posted on: 25 November 2019

If you find that you are running out of storage space in your home, you may intend on renting a storage unit in the near future. When this means that you will be renting and using a storage unit during wintertime, you may be a bit worried because of how cold it may get in your climate. Use these tips to enjoy a positive storage experience.

Shoe Grips

When you are walking from your house to your car, van, or moving truck to load items that you will put into storage, you want to make sure that you do not slip and fall. This makes it worth investing in shoe grips that are designed to help you walk around on both ice and snow. If you do not want to wear them in your house, you can move anything that you want to put into storage by the front door or in the garage and then put on the shoe grips and start loading your items.


Picking a great location is essential, especially when you want to have a pleasant experience with using a storage unit throughout the wintertime. If your climate gets a decent amount of snow in the winter, you will want to avoid storage facilities with difficult routes to reach. You want to feel confident that you can get to the facility even when there is a lot of snow outside.


While making preparations to rent a storage unit, you should consider what items to pick up to avoid problems with storing items. While you may already have plenty of warm clothes to wear, you should pick up thick gloves with a lot of grip that will allow you to hold onto items well. This will help you avoid a situation in which you may lose your grip and drop furniture or boxes.


Where you are able to park within the storage facility should play a major role in which place you should rent a unit because you want it to be quick and easy to access storage. An ideal scenario is when you can park right outside your unit, especially during wintertime when you want to minimize how much time you are spending outside while carrying your belongings.

Keeping these things in mind when looking at all your self storage options will help you pick a unit and facility that satisfies your needs in the winter.
