  • Climate controlled self storage Units are units which are typically located inside a self storage facility with their internal temperature regulated to a designated temperature.
  • Climate controlled units are beneficial to those storing items that could be damaged if the temperature is not maintained. Some of those items could include, but are not limited to, wine, electronics, or art work.

  • For our customers in Millbrae, CA we suggest you store your wine collection in one of our 1x1 climate controlled self storage units.
  • We also suggest that if you will be storing items such as electronics for an extended period of time during a move that you should store those items in a climate controlled self storage unit.
  • Also, if you have any items that are made of solid wood and live in a climate that may have a higher amount of moisture in the air, storing these items in a climate controlled self storage unit will help prevent or reduce the amount of moisture that the wood is exposed to keeping the wood from warping.

  • Vehicle storage is an asset to many, especially in areas where there is not enough space to park extra vehicles, boats, or an RV on your property. In most areas, this would be a violation of your residential HOA (Home Owners Association). Thus, at Shield Storage, we provide covered and uncovered vehicle storage and parking spaces at several our locations nationwide.

  • Covered vehicle storage includes all spaces that are covered by an awning of some kind to protect your vehicle from sun damage.
  • Uncovered vehicle storage includes all spaces that do not have any type of covering provided. These are optimal for larger vehicles such as large boats, RVs, and trailers.
  • You can also store your vehicle in some of the larger units that can be found at some of our locations.
