How to choose self-storage units in Green Bay

Green Bay skyline

Brown County outpaces most of the state in population growth, which means a lot of people are moving. As Green Bay residents choose storage units to help with life transitions, they’ll find many options. One of the most significant is whether the unit is indoor or outdoor.

  • Outdoor units are generally cheaper and have wide aisles, allowing you to drive directly to the unit’s door and providing easy access for storing large items.
  • Indoor units are generally climate controlled, typically have better pest control and may have electrical outlets inside the unit.

Renting a climate-controlled unit provides additional protection for your belongings. Green Bay, along with much of the Midwest, is notorious for its cold winters and humid summers. Many household items are adversely affected by both extreme temperatures and humidity, including:

  • Furniture
  • Clothing
  • Books
  • Musical Instruments
  • Electronics

The cost of self-storage units in Green Bay

The more amenities a storage facility offers, the higher the price will be. You’ll also generally pay more for units with a desirable location—a unit on the first floor or by an elevator in an indoor facility may cost more, as could an outdoor unit at the end of a row.

Other factors that affect the cost include the size of the unit and vacancy rate at a location, similar to hotel pricing. For instance, prices may be higher in the summer when UW-Green Bay students moving for the summer create more demand.

Storage units in Green Bay are usually rented monthly with no long-term obligation. If you plan on storing your possessions for an extended time, you may be able to negotiate a better rate by signing a longer contract. If you’re renting on a month-to-month contract, the facility can increase the monthly cost. Be sure to ask about the company’s process for notifying you of rate changes.

Protecting your self-storage unit in Green Bay

Whether your homeowners or renters insurance covers property in a storage unit depends on your policy. If your policy doesn’t cover possessions in a storage unit, ask your insurance provider or your storage facility’s employees about acquiring additional protection. Your storage facility may offer insurance for an additional fee.

SpareFoot

SpareFoot

SpareFoot is a storage marketplace, not a storage provider, that lets customers compare options near them. SpareFoot is often able to lock in special rates customers cannot get on their own and also has discounts available for students, military and AAA members. Reviewers in Green Bay love how much time and money SpareFoot saves them.

U-Haul

U-Haul

U-Haul offers a variety of storage unit options, including on-site storage facilities and storage containers that can be dropped off anywhere to be filled and then picked up and stored in a warehouse until customers need them. Green Bay customers appreciate the reasonable prices, but some say they wish the customer service was better.

PODS

PODS

PODS offers storage containers that are dropped off to be filled and can be kept on your property, stored at the company’s facility or moved to a new location. Green Bay reviewers enjoy the convenience but recommend calling the local branch directly for customer service rather than relying on the company’s website or central office.
