What is self-storage?

Self-storage facilities are a convenient way to store items that you don’t have the space for. Storage facilities rent out space, known as storage lockers or storage units, to tenants on a short-term basis.

How does self-storage work?
  1. First, find out what type of items you want to store. Review your storage facility’s guidelines on what you can and can’t store.
  2. Storage units are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Find out what type of unit best first your needs.
  3. Identify any storage amenities you may need (climate control, 24-hour access, etc.)
  4. Move your items into the facility. Be sure to always pay your storage rent on time to avoid loss of items.
How long will my lease be?

Most storage facilities offer month-to-month leases. However, some businesses offer discounts and promotions that may require a minimum storage lease to be redeemed. Talk with your storage facility and make sure that you understand their offer.

Why choose self-storage?

There are a plethora of reasons why you might need self-storage. Are you tripping over clutter in your home? Do you need to make room for a new baby? Self-storage is the easiest way to ensure that your most important items are safe and sound, either temporary or long-term.

How can I find a self-storage unit?
