I’ve noticed when some people inquire about public storage and I say “I’m a……multi level facility…” they say “Multi level? Do you have anything available on the 1st floor?”. But there are several great advantages to being high in the sky and Dino’s Storage will change how you may feel about a multi level building.
When Dino’s laid out the plans for our buildings we thought about our customers and did it better than some in the past, we installed elevators!! I had someone ask me once “Do you have elevators?”. Apparently they had used a multi level facility in Arizona and had to lug their belongings up stairs. I said “Yes we have elevators, not only do we have elevators; we have large freight elevators that will easily accommodate any big furniture pieces. You can even fit items loaded and wrapped on pallets. We also have flat carts available to our tenants for loading and unloading (yes, furniture fits on them too). Save your back and stop lugging heavy boxes. Just put them on a cart, step into the elevator, and roll your way down the aisles.
If you’ve ever used regular ground level storage you’ve probably had a manager or owner tell you “..to ensure you don’t come back to damaged belongings, it’s a good idea to put your stuff on pallets or up on boards and not directly on the concrete floor”. This is for several reason; but one is concrete is a porous material. When the ground is cold and the temperature in the unit is hotter, concrete can sweat. Which means condensation will collect on the floor (kind of like the tank on your toilet when you take a hot shower, or the windows in your car). So if your nice wooden furniture or cardboard boxes are directly on the concrete floor eventually it will wick up this condensation and can warp. This will not happen when you are off the ground.
Another concern with regular ground level storage is rodents. No matter what precautions you and/or the facility take; rodents can, and sometimes do find their way in. Especially in the winter. It’s cold outside and they scurry around the ground seeking shelter; as sometimesthat shelter is in your unit. Hey if you’re not on the ground you don’t have to worry!!
So when your thinking about what you want in a storage facility, set your sights a little higher. Once you store on the penthouse levels, you will want to stay there. And the best part is Dino’s doesn’t charge any extra for it, it’s just as affordale as the ground floor!!
