Fluctuations in temperature and moisture can cause many valuables that are stored for long periods of time to lose their original quality.
Leather furniture, photographs, books, artwork, electronics and musical instruments can all be affected. Wine that’s not stored correctly can age prematurely and lose its flavor. That's why Secure Storage in Hillsboro even offers wine-specific storage units.
Our Hillsboro climate-controlled storage units are designed to counteract this problem by helping the wine connoisseur, the art collector, the musician—and even the hobbyist, protect their valuables. Because certain items just don’t fare well in standard storage spaces.
