Storage Basics

Finding a storage unit can be an overwhelming task, especially if you aren't familiar with all of the options and features available. It's best to assess all of your storage needs before you even search for a local storage facility.

Consider how long you might need the storage unit; we are flexible regarding short term or long term agreements.

Estimate how much space you will require. Save money by only renting the space you need. Feel free to use the self storage calculator to help you.

How often will you need to access the unit? We are open seven days a week and access hours are only during business hours.

Are any of the items you plan to store sensitive to temperature or humidity? If so, you will most likely need a climate-controlled storage unit. Typically the following items need to be stored indoors with some type of climate-control: leathers, furs, clothing, paintings, film, photographs, furniture, antiques, musical instruments, wine, paper, software, DVDs, CDs and electronics.
