Common Reasons for Renting a Storage Unit

Common Reasons for Renting a Storage Unit


Using storage while moving to a new home, transitioning between leases, living in temporary housing, and relocating are common reasons for renting self storage.

Life Transitions

Divorce, downsizing for retirement, caring for a family member’s estate, or working through a natural disaster, self storage can help when life changes arise.


The best way to avoid moving to a larger home or office while also keeping your space clutter-free is tomove items that you want to hang on to but don’t necessarily need right now to a storage unit.

Apartment Living

Self storage can make apartment living easier. If you live in a studio or one-bedroom apartment thatdoesn’t have much storage space, renting a unit can help you get more room.

Storing a Vehicle

Cars, motorcycles, RVs, boats, trailers, commercial vans, can be stored within a vehicle storage unit.

Home Renovations or Staging for a Sale

Remodeling a home or office can take up to several months and may require you to move furniture and appliances out of the way. Moving these items to storage temporarily is a solution.

Business Storage

Businesses often use commercial storage units for extra space where they can store inventory,
materials, files, equipment, or business vehicles.


Military families are on the move every few years, moving to different bases. As these changes can be drastic, self storage can be a huge help when relocating.

Construction Contractors

Whether you leave the container securely in our yard or have it dropped at your job site, self storage is great option for storing tools, extra supplies, and any other items you need when working on a job.

Why Drive-Up Storage

Convenient Access

The convenience of being able to pull your vehicle directly up to the storage unit to load and unload is one of the major reasons why customers love drive-up access.

Vehicle Storage

Free Up Your Driveway! If you have a vehicle that's too large to fit inside an enclosed storage unit,
outdoor storage is a good alternative. Outdoor vehicle storage is a common solution for large boats, campers, trailers, motorhomes, and even some commercial vans and trucks.

This option is typically available as a designated parking stall or an open parking lot at our location. While outdoor parking doesn't provide coverage from the elements, it's often a good option for cheap storage in a fenced lot. 

This is also a great option for those living in apartments without parking, active military who need safe storage for vehicles during deployment, saving family cars for children, or storing a business van or truck. Store your vehicle with us and reclaim your space.

By renting your storage unit online, the rental process is that much faster and easier! With just a few clicks, you can pick the perfect unit size, sign your lease electronically, and make your first monthly payment. You’ll be able to view and/or print your complete rental agreement in advance and head right over to the location when you are ready to move in.
