What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Milwaukee, WI

In addition to the features of a facility, there are plenty of other considerations to make when choosing a place to store your belongings. First and foremost, it’s best to keep in mind what items you need to store. If you need to store electronics, leather, wood furniture or paperwork — all of which are sensitive to humidity and heat — it’s important to search for a storage facility with climate-controlled units. In a city like Milwaukee, which has an above-average annual snowfall, it’s also a good idea to find a facility that offers storage units that are located above-ground because snow melt can lead to flooding and higher levels of humidity in the springtime. If a facility isn’t able to provide you with an above-ground unit, it’s a good idea to ask if they can offer pallets to help you keep your items off the floor.

Crime rates in Milwaukee are extremely high. In fact, the property crime rate in the city is rated 59.5 on a scale of one to 100, which is 19 points above the national average. This rate encompasses crimes such as theft, burglary and vandalism. For those storing their belongings outside of their own home, such a high crime rate can cause some concern. That’s why it’s important to find a storage facility that offers security features such as video surveillance, alarms and gated access. It’s also best to consider purchasing a contents insurance policy when leaving your belongings in storage.
