The Important Benefits of Choosing Heated Storage

If you’ve decided that you need to put some items in storage, then those items must hold some importance or meaning to you or you would have simply thrown them out. These are items that you likely want to hang on to and use again in the future. So, before settling on just any storage facility, you should give some serious thought to the importance of choosing a heated storage unit.

Cold temperatures can cause significant damage to items left in storage over a longer period of time. Cycles of freezing and thawing can cause your possessions to warp, crack, break, or tear. Choosing a climate controlled storage facility such as Queensborough Mini Storage in Lower Mainland, BC is a good idea if you are looking to store any of the following items:

  • Valuable documents and records

  • Wood or metal furniture

  • Photographs

  • Clothes and other fabrics

  • Mattresses

  • Leather

  • Artwork

  • Electronic devices

  • DVDs and CDs

  • Sports equipment

  • Musical instruments

  • Appliances

  • Any other valuable possessions

As you can see, the list of items that require climate controlled storage is likely longer than the list of items that don’t. If there are some items which you are unsure of and which were not included on the above list, then it is probably best to err on the side of caution and store them in a heated facility as well.

Lower Mainland does have a generally mild climate, but temperatures can and do dip below freezing during the winter months. In fact, record low temperatures in December and January have reached down to −20°C, so it is never a good idea to bank on a mild winter. In order to make sure that your items are protected against the cold from November until March you will want to keep them in a storage facility that maintains temperatures at 5°C or above.
