Has anyone rented a self storage space before? Any tips on getting the best deal and/or locations to avoid?

I did the one on 84th st. across from the fair. got our things out and we got free rat poison packs included on top of boxes and lost TONS to water damage. I wouldnt go there.
ALso, if not climate controlled, do not pack in cardboard. Use plastic bins only.
our boxes were wet or damp-even the ones that were not on the ground. I lost hundred of books (teacher) and tons of clothes. Even clothes in plastic bins were moldy from the super-moist space.

I would absolutely go with climate control and pick a neighborhood you're comfortable with.
Even though you won't live in your unit....
