Not All Storage Units Are Created Equal
There’s more to choosing the right storage unit than simply finding something cheap and close to home. Now more than ever, there are a wide variety of features and amenities that differ from one storage facility to another. Finding the right balance of location, cost, size, and amenities means you’ll get the right storage solution for you.

What is a covered loading bay?
A covered loading bay is an area for you to unload your belongings while sheltered from the weather. Loading bays are present more often at storage facilities with interior units.
Are covered loading bays provided?
Many of our storage facilities have covered loading bays so rain, sleet, or snow are not a problem.

Most of of our facilities have onsite managers with set office hours. Only a few have managers who live onsite. Some facilities are annexes, with their office located at a nearby location.
Do you have various unit sizes?
Yes, we offer a wide range of unit sizes to better fit your storage needs, ranging from a small locker to large warehouses and anything in between. View our Self Storage Calculator or contact our storage experts to help guide you in selecting the right size unit for you.
Climate Controlled Storage
What's the difference between heated and climate controlled storage?
We offer two types of special units for temperature sensitive items. A heated unit is warmer in the winter to prevent the temperature from dropping too low. This unit type is especially common in areas with very cold winters. A climate controlled unit is one that is heated in the winter and cooled in the summer, keeping the interior at a moderate temperature. This is the ideal storage solution for temperature sensitive items such as electronics, antiques, or musical instruments.
Is climate controlled the same as temperature controlled?
Yes, a climate controlled unit is one that is temperature controlled to be constant year-round, protecting your belongings from temperature fluctuations.
When do I need climate controlled storage?
Climate controlled storage is ideal for sensitive items such as electronics, furniture, wooden instruments, or musical instruments.
