That would be under Storage Facilities category if on Angies List - mixed in with storage unit companies. You can find such companies by googling this search phrase - climate controlled storage box

To consider:

1) where will you plant it - very few storage lots allow them because it needs power

2) even if at home or such place with power, unless you get one with a service contract and a wireless/cell monitoring system, you will have no way of knowing, in a timely fashion, if the heating/cooling unit goes out.

3) be aware of insect/rodent issues if stored on ground - they donot tend to be a big issue in higher quality storage facilities becaue they treat for them and a lot of concrete floor to travel over, which discourages most bugs fairly quick - not so in outdoor situation

4) you also presumably have higher risk of potential for unit flooding, either from runoff or snow melt seeping in the doors or holes in the unit, or from roof leaks or door seal leaks in storms.

My recommendation - store your stuff at a normal storage facility or moving and storage warehouse that is air conditioned - maybe frame out a loosely hung large tarp over the top almost down to the ground to protect it in case of fire sprinkler leak or activation, but with air space around the bottom - like put on pallets and cover only to an inch or so above the ground to allow some ventilation.
