If you’re looking for a more niche storage service, you may have to do some research. If you’re looking to park an RV, a boat, or another large vehicle, you want to know that your self storage facility can handle it. You also want to know that it’ll be safe to leave your vehicle there for an extended period of time. Your vehicle also needs to be easy to retrieve.

Climate Control Options

Depending on what you’re storing, you may want to look into climate controlled options. Artwork, instruments, and other valuable items can be adversely affected by the heat and humidity. A climate controlled unit can give you peace of mind and prevent costly damage.

Low Risk of Damage

Speaking of damage, the weather isn’t the only thing that can damage your items. Pests, for instance, can be a big problem depending on what you have stored. Fortunately, we offer complimentary pest control here at our facility. You know that your items are in good hands and that they’ll come back to you in good condition when you store at Elite Self Storage.
