Locals know that seasonal dust storms, called haboobs, are a real possibility. Quite the phenomenon, these summer-season dust storms roll into the city and leave nearly everything covered in a blanket of dust. For your convenience, we have dust covers available for purchase in each of our Phoenix store offices.
On average, there are 299 sunny days per year in Phoenix. The weather is dry and warm from December to May and it is very hot from July through September. How hot is hot? Most Phoenix summer days reach 99°F, and it's not unusual to see temps top the 110s, making the city's climate a factor to seriously consider when choosing your own self storage unit. Luckily, many of our storage facilities throughout the Phoenix Metro area offer air-conditioned storage units. These air-conditioned storage units are typically regulated at 80°F year-round to keep you, and the items inside of the storage units, cool.
Climate-controlled storage is ideal for storing temperature-sensitive items in your unit such as antiques, electronics, and even cases of wine. In fact, Life Storage customers can enjoy the added bonus of a cooling mist bay as they load and unload their items at facility #874 in Chandler, our climate-controlled wine storage facility.
Helpful Tip for Movers:
If you've rented a large moving truck for move-in day, be sure to ask a Life Storage store manager if it'll clear our gates so you can unload without any unexpected issues. Some of our facilities are not navigable by 18-wheelers and large trucks.

For the uninitiated, Phoenix provokes visions of dusty tumbleweeds and cowboy kitsch. And while you will certainly find remnants of The Valley's Wild West past throughout the city, today, Phoenix is incredibly diverse and modern.
Public Transportation in Phoenix
Phoenix boasts an award-winning public transportation system that spans 28-miles and connects the West Valley to the East Valley, providing quick access to Downtown Phoenix, Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona State University, and Downtown Mesa. Phoenix's popular public transit system effortlessly complements its bike paths, too. The city's commitment to make its bike paths accessible and safe has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists who recently named Phoenix a bronze level bicycle-friendly community. Which is very good news for students and commuters.
Phoenix is Going Green
In an effort to increase city-wide sustainability, Phoenix is currently testing new technologies such as cool pavement to mitigate heat island effect. Additional efforts to boost Phoenix's eco-friendly reputation include reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions throughout the city by using alternative fuels, creating new solar power projects, as well as implementing energy-efficient street lights and traffic signals.

Plus, Phoenix has been named the fastest-growing city in the country, according to data from the Census Bureau reported by Phoenix Business Journal. Within a single year Phoenix greeted 25,288 new residents. And while the abundant sunshine is more than enough reason to move to Phoenix, much of the population growth is credited to the local economy where a range of industries, from manufacturing to big tech firms, are headquartered. Arizona-based companies that call Phoenix home include Banner Health, ON Semiconductor, Sprouts Farmers Market, Knight Transportation, PetSmart, GoDaddy, Hyundai Engineering, and DriveTime Automotive Group.
Phoenix Metro suburbs including Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Chandler are among the 20 best places to raise a family, according to a survey by WalletHub, which factored in family fun, health and safety, child care and education, as well as overall affordability.
