Spring Valley, CA – According to the experts at SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley, most basic storage units are either indoors or out. And while outdoor storage units are typically less expensive, indoor storage has plenty of benefits. To help people decide on where to store their valuable personal or business belongings, SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley offers up insight into the pros and cons of each option.
Spring Valley is a booming town, so it is no wonder that so many people have the need for self-storage. While some choose indoor storage, others are looking for a more budget-minded approach in the form of a drive-up or outdoor storage unit. But what’s the difference?
SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley staff explains that an indoor storage unit is just that: inside. These are usually sized anywhere from about 5′ x 5′ all the way up to 10′ x 25′ or more. An indoor storage unit is suitable for many different types of possessions, including clothing, electronics, antiques, and more. A climate-controlled indoor storage unit is also ideal for people that need to access their unit frequently and don’t wish to have to deal with excessive heat, rain, or cold.
Outdoor storage spaces are safe and secure, and they are usually more suited to recreational vehicles, antique cars, or watercraft. Other personal items, such as playground equipment and seasonal outdoor furniture, may also store well in an outdoor storage space. Outdoor storage also has a leg up on indoor storage when it comes to large items that can’t easily be maneuvered into a building, even using a specialty elevator system.
The benefits of indoor storage are many, say the staff at SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley. Indoor storage is a great option for people to store furniture and other personal property during a lengthy remodel. They also come in handy for those starting families who don’t want to get rid of their “bachelor” or “single lady” collections, such as musical instruments or expensive clothes and shoes. There are some drawbacks to indoor storage, however, and primary of these is not having immediate access to important personal belongings, such as a family heirloom, at home. Further, no outdoor or indoor storage unit is suitable for one-of-a-kind items that can’t be replaced.
Outdoor storage offers benefits as well, especially for people in the middle of a move or life transition that only need to store furniture or electronics for a very short time. Outdoor storage often offers more space than indoor storage, and many units are easy to access from the ground level. This makes it very easy to move things in and out, which is important for those who have to access their storage unit frequently.
Outdoor storage is also a great option for RVs, boats, and other vehicles. Homeowners that live in an HOA neighborhood may find they have no other choice than to find a storage unit, as these vehicles are often not allowed in planned communities.
SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley says there is no right or wrong answer when choosing between outdoor or indoor storage. Everyone’s needs are unique, and everyone’s budgets are different. The company recommends paying a visit to a storage unit facility and talking with a manager or staff member about current specials as well as facility amenities before making a decision.
SecureSpace Self Storage Spring Valley is conveniently located on Campo Road and offers monitored security, a smart gate system, and both outdoor and indoor storage units. All units are exquisitely clean and undergo routine pest control service.
