Here in the Boston area (not near downtown, though), a 10'x12' cost close to
$100/mo. now. This was not a ground floor unit but there was an elevator.
I did not get a climate controlled unit but the storage building was large
enough that the outside conditions were somewhat moderated. All of my stuff
came out just as it went in - except what the movers damaged - but that's
another whole story.
I'll second what POG said... I put my stuff into storage in July of 1997
for a few months - maximum of six months - and I finally got it out this
January. :-) My stuff was definitely not worth what I paid to keep it in
storage for 2.5 years. It was worth it for 6 months though.
FWIW, when the stuff went into storage, it was <$85/mo. There were two
increases while I was there bringing it to ~$98/mo. I had them
automatically charge it to my credit card each month so my support only had
to worry about one bill each month.
