Life Storage #404, Lake Forest ‐ Wine Storage Features

  • Climate Controlled Wine Storage**

    For optimum quality, your wines should be stored at 55-58°F, with 65-70% humidity. Life Storage offers refrigeration equipment dedicated to our wine storage units, separate from other unit heating and cooling systems with generator backup. As humidity fluctuations can impact your wine's flavor, we offer humidity control systems in our wine storage units as well.
  • Lighting Control**

    Wine storage units feature motion-activated lighting and special lightbulbs so your wine is exposed to a minimum amount of ultra violet light. Minimizing the effects of light exposure during wine storage enhances the quality.
  • Surveillance Systems

    Smile, you're on camera! Surveillance cameras are positioned throughout the facility to create a safer environment by monitoring traffic in and out of the facility and deterring trespassers.
  • Extended Access Hours

I worked for a book company so was frequently working out of my storage units, sometimes alone during very late hours and I never felt unsafe. I have rarely if ever even seen a bug or spider in the entire facility, which is near impossible! I just can't say enough about the Lake Forest facility's service and its all because of him. I havent met anyone else at Bobs that works to this caliber. He is truly dedicated. "

    "I think the property and manager, Jeff, are top notch. It has not been as personal and at ease as it was before Uncle Bob [Life Storage] acquired the property. There is an obvious "do things by the book" feeling in the other staff and frankly, this is storage. A people business, not computer assembly. "

    "The only reason I didn't give highest scores on satisfaction was the price and how it increased so much so fast after I rented. The price is actually what prompted me to finish up my mother's estate and get the items out of storage."
