What size storage unit do I need?

Absolutely! Carts, dollies,and hand trucks are available for your use and they are free of charge. Our moving carts are sturdy and can hold up to 200 lbs.

What are climate controlled units?

Climate controlled units allow your items to be stored as if they were still inside your home or office. All of our interior units provide a much higher quality of storage than a shed or attic and they are virtually dust free.

Do I need insurance?

Insuring your items while they are in storage is highly recommended. Just as your home is susceptible to fire, roof leaks, burglary and vandalism, so too is your storage unit. Check your homeowners or renters insurance policy to see if your storage possessions are covered.  We can provide very cost effective coverage.

We accept all forms of payment, including Mastercard®, Visa®, Discover®, or American Express®. You can pay for storage by automatic debit from your debit/bank card, credit card account or checking account.
