Climate controlled storage

Hey guys,

I'm moving out of my dad's house here in the next week, and he's selling the house here soon(hopefully). I can't take really any of my collection with me aside from a few small displays. He's going to be getting a storage unit for the things he doesn't/can't take with to wherever he moves in to..whether and apartment or condo...and said I'm more than welcome to drag all my crap there.

He asked if any of the cardboard cards or boxes will be affected by extreme hot/cold weather that IL seems to have every year, and I had no clue really.

Would the cardboard cards/boxes warp or get damaged by sitting in IL winter/summer weather? Or would it be best to get something climate controlled?

I think everything in this thread is my main reason for keeping my collection tight. If I run out of display space or storage boxes, something has to go. That means if I find a great car I really want, it has to take the place of a car I can do without. This car will then go to a friend's son or any other kid to play with (talking HW and MBX). 1/18 and 1/43 are a different area and I won't buy more than one or two a year of those for storage reasons. I think my biggest headache at the moment is shelf space for my Sikus.

MBX and HW mainlines can be stored in this:

Ah Kiwi, the old crammed parking garage display aesthetic, I know it well. :lol:
Absolutely, you got it! Makes it easier to weed some out too. You wouldn't believe how many of these can actually go.
