Can i store my instruments in climate controlled storage units now that’s a good question a lot of us might be musicians maybe you have a bunch of different instruments maybe you have to get them out of the way just for a little while because you’re renovating or you’re moving and you need short-term storage whatever the reason is, the question remains, how do you actually store your instruments in the best possible way to avoid all damage to them? So Lauren, and for anyone else who doesn’t know, climate controlled storage unit help regulate and optimize the humidity and temperature inside of the storage unit to avoid all types of humidity damage, heat damage, or cold damage. They usually cost about 25 or 50 percent more in rent per month than a regular storage unit so you need to also take that under consideration now when it comes to instruments most of them are made of either wood or metal or some kind of combination of the two with other materials so these are particularly sensitive to humidity anything that’s metal can probably accumulate rust if there’s any excess humidity anything that’s wooden may swell or shrink so you definitely don’t want that for your instruments. So to best protect them, Lauren, yes, climate controlled units are the only way to go. I really recommend making sure that your unit is climate controlled before you move your instruments in because of course you don’t want them to be damaged. They’re so, so precious. Of course, it’s not only enough to just shove it in a storage unit that’s climate controlled and be done with it. It’s very, very important when it comes to instruments specifically to package them very carefully very thoughtfully so if your instrument came with a case put it back in that case wrap it up with bubble wrap protect it with moving blankets something like that to avoid it being hit even if something falls on it even if there’s anything wrong with the external part of the unit you really want to avoid any damage to it so make sure you pack it really really well gently carefully if there are any extra pieces make sure you attach them to the case or packaging so that you don’t lose them.
