First Time Self Storage Guide


Self-storage is an affordable, efficient way for you to store your life's possessions. Self-storage makes it easy to store items of all shapes and sizes in one convenient storage location. How do I use it? Self-storage can be used for many purposes: - As an extension of your home; a place to store seldom used items - To store seasonal items such as decorations, sports equipment, lawn mowers or snow blowers or bicycles while you're waiting for the snow to melt! - As a business storage solution to de-clutter your office, store important documents, extra office furniture for upsizing or downsizing, or additional inventory - To free up garage space so you can actually park your car in a sheltered environment and many more!
Create a list of the items that you are going to be storing. Choosing the right size unit will ensure that you only pay for the storage you need. Visit our size guide to determine exactly what size you will need, and then check out our helpful storing tips for maximizing your storage space!
Our month to month rentals give you the flexibility to choose just how long you will require your unit. Most people think that they may only need storage for 6 months or a year depending on their circumstances. Planning ahead and determining what kind of space your belongings will take up is a good start.
You provide the lock ensuring that you, and only you, have access. Don't have a lock? No problem, we offer a wide range of locks, packing and moving supplies to make your move stress-free. Even better, we offer a wide selection of moving supplies at very affordable prices.
Yes, you are responsible for those items you store. We offer affordable self-storage insurance options at the facility. If you have a homeowner's insurance policy we do accept this with a copy of your policy that we keep on file.
Many of our locations have extra wide drive aisles, allowing your rental truck or movers easy access to your unit. We offer FREE hand-carts and/or dollies at many of our facilities. And at all of our facilities we offer U-Haul trucks, vans, and moving equipment to assist you in moving your items. Contact us today to speak to one of our helpful managers to check our wide variety of moving supplies, equipment, and hand-cart availability.
Our storage facility has restrictions as to what you can and cannot store in your unit. This is for the protection for you and your belongings, as well as our staff, other customers and their goods.
