The Difference Between Climate Controlled Storage And Warehouse Storage

Begin transcipt

“Hi, it’s Dan here with Humboldt Storage and Moving.

With summer fast approaching, the questions are coming in fast and furious.

One question I always hear is ‘what’s the difference between normal storage and climate controlled storage and do I need it?‘.

This is one thing in the moving industry that drives me crazy!

The term climate controlled is really thrown around out there. Let me explain real quickly the differences to you.

Climate controlled storage is not needed for normal household good items. Climate control storage is:

  • Humidity Controlled
  • Temperature Controlled to the degree, and
  • Usually under high security

This sort of storage is really only relevant if you’re storing an art collection, antique furniture, wine storage, things of that nature. Items that are very, very sensitive.

Normal storage, what you would be looking for in a normal warehouse and for household goods, would just be that the Storage Facility is:

  • Heated, and
  • Air Circulated

Those are the two components really that are important for normal household goods.

So next time, when you hear the term climate controlled storage, do a little digging and figure out:

  1. Is it true climate control?
  2. Do you actually need it for your goods?

That’s a great tip when you’re storing your items.”
