What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Baton Rouge, LA

On a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being high crime, property crime in Baton Rouge is rated as 66.4. Considering that the U.S. average property crime rate is 35.4, finding a storage facility with comprehensive security features is critical.

With high heat and humidity being the norm for significant portions of the year, climate-controlled storage is a must when stowing away important documents and electronics.

Additionally, it’s important to take into account Louisiana’s seasonal weather patterns and Baton Rouge’s topography. Parts of the city are known to flood during heavy rainfall from hurricanes and other storms, and with the city bordering the Mississippi River, heavy snowfall in the north can result in the river over-flowing weeks later and flooding surrounding areas as levees are toppled and spillways are opened. Obtaining storage outside of a flood zone should be strongly considered when comparing facilities.
