Indoor Storage vs. Outdoor Storage....which do you prefer or do you even know the difference?

Indoor Storage or Climate controlled storage as we prefer to call it is located within another building keeping you safe from the outside elements and Outdoor Storage is just that, it's located outside...you drive directly to your unit.

Which do you need...lets find out!

There are many benefits to either renting Climate Controlled Storage vs Outdoor Storage, but it all depends on what you want. When it comes to the benefits of outdoor storage, you have the ability for easy access and driving directly to your unit. Therefor, no multiple trips between your unit and your vehicle. Outdoor Storage is typically less expensive; when comparing apples to apples, outdoor storage is usually $25-$50 less than climate controlled storage.

Climate Controlled Storage, a storage unit located within a building, serves its purpose too which allows protection from the outside elements. Basically, weather is never an issue and each time you visit your storage unit, your safe! You never worry about rain, sand, salt and you never need to worry about getting snowed on if you live in Binghamton!
