Storage units with climate control maintain a consistent environment of 55˚F-85˚F in order to protect items that may be damaged in extreme temperatures. These units offer ultimate comfort when you are loading and unloading at your unit. Check out our CLIMATE CONTROL tab under STORAGE TOOLS for more information on our climate control units.
What is a drive-up unit?
Do you need frequent access to your items? Do you want a simpler and smoother move-in and unload process? A drive-up unit is the way to go! Drive-up units are similar to an attached garage. These units are on the ground floor and have an exterior entrance which allows for direct access to and from your vehicle. The doors roll up and are opened manually.
What is the difference between an indoor and an outdoor unit?
An outdoor unit is most often a drive-up unit, which gives you the ability to load your belongings directly from a vehicle or truck. An inside unit is within the property and will require you to go inside, and down a hall to access your unit. The inside units are climate controlled. We have 4 different entry doors to make your move easy, and convenient hand carts on site to assist you as well.
What are the gate access hours?
Gate access is available daily from 7AM-7PM at our DriveInn Storage South® location. If you require 24/7 access, then our DriveInn Storage North® location is the perfect location!
