Many of our customers choose a heated unit for the peace of mind it provides them with their valuable belongings. Let’s take a closer look at some of the common reasons businesses and individuals choose to rent a heated storage unit in Calgary.
Heated storage units for businesses
In Calgary, we’re often exposed to extreme temperatures. Whether it’s -30C in the winter or +30C in the summer, an unheated storage unit also experiences fluctuations in weather. A climate-controlled unit maintains the temperature all year round and can protect your belongings from damage.
Many businesses rent a heated unit for the following reasons:
- E-commerce businesses needing to store sensitive inventory
- A home-based business requiring space to separate home and work
- Tradespeople needing to store valuable materials
- Short-term storage for extra inventory that can benefit from a climate-controlled unit
- Long-haul truck drivers who need to store valuable personal belongings
At Alberta Storage Place, we also provide both office space and storage conveniently in the same place for businesses. This is a feature that no other storage units in Calgary offer.
Heated storage unit for households and individuals
Individuals who need extra storage often experience a significant life change such as a new baby, a marriage, a divorce, a death of a loved one, or elderly parents moving to care facilities. It’s common for households and individuals to store sensitive items like furniture, pictures, artwork, and other valuables that require a climate-controlled unit.
We also offer storage solutions for individuals who are:
- Building a new home
- Renovating their existing home
- Needing extra space for seasonal items like decorations, tires, and sports gear
When it comes to a heated storage unit, there really are no disadvantages. It’s a choice whether you require a climate-controlled unit for your items. Our storage units are not limited to the above needs; we can help you find the right storage solution for your business or household.
