What does Climate-Controlled mean?
Climate-controlled spaces are heated, cooled and dehumidified and maintained at a temperature between 50 and 80 degrees (F).  Climate-controlled spaces protect your belongings from extreme temperatures and high humidity.  Climate-controlled units are inside units and are accessed through an outside door and down a hallway, which also protects your belongings from dust.
When can I access my storage unit?
You can access your storage unit 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Once you have signed the lease agreement you will have immediate access to your unit.  You will be given a personal access code to use to enter the building.  We furnish you with a high security disc lock with three keys.  Don’t lose the keys as we do not have a key to your lock.

Please note, past-due accounts will have access codes disabled and storage units “over locked” (a second lock securing the storage unit). After a past-due payment is made you can call (251) 866-4040 to get the combination to unlock the over lock.

Does Cool Air Storage require insurance?
Yes.  Renting a storage unit is similar to renting an apartment.  The same way your landlord doesn’t insure your personal belongings, Cool Air Storage OB LLC doesn’t insure your items either.  We require that you insure your belongings for your own protection.  However, we do offer an excellent Property Protection program that satisfies the lease requirement for as little as $7.95 a month!  We offer several insurance plans that are added to your rent.  If you wish to decline the insurance you must furnish us a copy of your homeowners insurance policy which shows that your belongings are covered in a storage facility.

Yes. We require a 1 day notice before your next billing date.  Just email or call (251) 866-4040.  Remove all your stored items, broom clean the unit and remove your lock.

Yes.  We have 36 high definition night vision video cameras that record 24/7.
