I would suggest getting something in the area that you can use to check temperature and humidity. I have these, http://www.universityproducts.com/cart.php?m=product_list&c=974&primary=1&parentId=&navTree%5B%5D=1262&navTree%5B%5D=1375&navTree%5B%5D=974 scattered all through my storage area. They are pretty affordable and will give you an idea of what environmental conditions you have. I conduct studies periodically where I physically record the temp and humidity over the period of a two weeks at three different times during the day. This gives me a good idea of what is going on in the room. I would probably do some monitoring like this prior to putting the dehumidifier in action.
Using pallets to keep things off the floor is a great idea.
