In this Flex TV episode, our storage expert clarifies the distinctions between indoor and outdoor storage units.

Today I have a question from Carol who wants to know what’s the difference between Indoor and outdoor storage units. That’s a really good question A lot of times we’ll want to get a storage unit and we read about indoor storage units, outdoor storage units We don’t understand the difference. We don’t understand how to choose what fits our needs best So for all of you who have been through that this video is for you So first of all I’m going to break down the difference between an indoor and an outdoor storage unit. An indoor storage unit is basically a big giant warehouse that’s divided into units inside. That means the entire place is indoors under a roof. So this offers several advantages. One is protection from extreme weather conditions. It’s better protected. The second is climate control. If you’re storing anything sensitive and you need to have climate control, indoor storage units will have them whereas outdoor storage units will not. The disadvantage is that it’s more expensive to store indoors than outdoors. On the other hand you have outdoor storage units. Outdoor storage units are basically huge compounds that are somehow enclosed or fenced where you get a designated area to store your stuff. Now this offers more convenience and flexibility if you’re storing larger items, stuff like trailers, RVs, motorcycle, car, stuff like that, you’re going to have to opt for an outdoor storage unit. It’s going to cost you less, it’s going to be more affordable, more convenient, more accessible for you. So in short, Carol, choosing between indoor and outdoor storage units really depends on what your needs are and what you’re storing. Obviously, if you’re storing things that are more sensitive and need climate control you’re going to want to opt for indoor storage units even though they’re more expensive and if you’re storing something less sensitive and that you can leave outside that doesn’t need this protection you can store it outdoors and save a little bit of money.
