      How to choose a Sacramento storage company

      Sacramento’s extreme heat and ocean dampness make climate-control features an important consideration when choosing a storage unit. The hot California sun can be damaging to storage items left outdoors or in non-climate-controlled units. Indoor storage saves the worry of sun and heat damage to temperature-sensitive items, such as antiques, electronics and plastics.

      Where you choose to store your items depends on how frequently you want to see them. If you live downtown but transfer your belongings to a unit outside the city to save money, you'll have to plan to visit them, rather than do it impulsively. If you house your possessions on any other floor but the ground level, think about how you'll get them in and out.

      Also consider amenities like unlimited access, onsite management and if your items need added temperature protection. If you know you're storing long term, ask how much lower long-term contracts are compared to monthly rates.

      Sacramento self storage cost

      The average 10’ x 10’ storage space in Sacramento is roughly $135 a month, which is 35 cents more than the national average per square inch of space. However, that same single bedroom-sized unit might cost up to $40 more per month due to fees, features, insurance and desirability of location. Although storage costs are higher than the national average, you can save money with discounts and other specials like first-month rent reductions or long-term commitment incentives.

      Amenities like climate control nudge monthly rates up even more, as do admin fees and insurance requirements — all of which are popular in the region. Admin fees are typically one-time paperwork fees around $25. Insurance is roughly $20 a month and helps you recover financially in the event of an unforeseen loss.
