If you have special products that need climate-controlled storage, Addicon Logistics has the best facility for you.
Finding the Right Climate-Controlled Storage Facility
How can you choose the best facility for your packages? Here’s a quick guide to help you.
Generally, these special storage facilities are more expensive than traditional ones. That’s expected considering the additional equipment needed to regulate the temperature. However, you also have to do your research and look for different rates from various providers. This is not to say that you have to immediately book the lowest offer. It is crucial that you understand the package inclusions first. What is the duration of the contract, and what are the specific items you can store?
You also have to check the size of the storage facility. Most of the facilities we know could only house small items. However, you might need to get bigger ones if you plan to store massive furniture or several packages.
- Safety and Security
Also, it is a must that you understand the security protocols of the storage company. As items using climate-controlled storages are of value, you need to ensure that your packages will be safe all the time.
- Customer Service
Apart from the actual facility, you need to see if they have outstanding customer service. Are they courteous enough to accommodate your questions? Are they knowledgeable about the technical queries that might concern you?
Here at Addicon Logistics, we always have professional representatives that could answer all your concerns. They are highly trained and will assist you accordingly.
