Chicago Self Storage Units

The uniqueness of life in Chicago is unrivalled by any other city in the nation, considering that this is the home of the deep-dish pizza, improvisational comedy, blues music and a diverse population with roots that are simultaneously American, African, Asian, European, Hispanic and Native American. Against the backdrop of performance art, surrealist painting, the Chicago hot dog and excellent educational institutions, center of finance, technology and business is home to millions of proud locals that make it the third most populated city in the United States. Considering the great number of people in this city, it is no wonder that local industries, such as the Chicago self storage industry thrive.

Storing 101 for the Chicago Climate

The uniqueness of Chicago and Chicagoans extends to the weather. The location of the city and weather patterns experienced by this region on the banks of the fifth largest freshwater body in the world create hot and humid weather conditions in the summer. The high temperatures in the summer can be the ideal situation for mold to grow on items in storage and can also cause heat related damage. This means you should not even consider getting storage unless you're choosing a climate controlled Chicago storage unit.

Choosing a Chicago Storage Unit

If you thought that was the greatest of worries with Chicago Self Storage, you should also know that the city sees an average of four inches of rain during the summer, which makes flooding very likely, especially on the banks of Lake Michigan. The localized flood damage that can be caused by these conditions means you should seek a storage unit that is geographically very strategic to minimize flooding. This isn't the only precaution you need to take; no matter where your self storage unit is, use shelves and pallets to be on the safe side!

Knowing what to pack and when

Chicagoan culture is also defined by outdoor recreation. As soon as the ice melts and the sun starts to shine, locals can be found in parks and on walkways or on a jet ski enjoying the water. There are annual water skiing competitions and boating events. This means that a majority of Chicago residents need places to store their recreational equipment and need to know the right times to put these things away. In the winter those canoes, jet skis and water sports equipment needs to go, as do your gardening equipment and camping gear. Let's not forget all the fishing equipment you might have stashed in your closet! In the summer, look to pack away the sleds, skiing equipment, ice skates and snowmobiles in self storage. If you come from Oak Park IL or the like, getting a storage unit in Chicago for these items will only make it more convenient when the right season hits and you take them out again!
