What does it cost to rent storage space?

The quick answer to this question is “almost anything” can be stored in your rented storage space.  The most common items are household items which are too numerous for the home and often too numerous for the garage as well.  People also use storage facilities for RV self storage, for car storage, and for boat storage.

Used patio furniture stored for the winter, household belongings stored after the sale of a home, business files for small businesses with limited storage space, practically anything can be stored safely.

What you shouldn’t store?

There are, however, a few items which should never be stored at a secure self storage company. Those items include:

  • Anything illegal
  • Food perishables
  • Animals
  • Plants
  • Toxins

In addition, storage units cannot serve as temporary housing due to housing unit regulations and restrictions.  We also suggest, especially in the case of valuables, that you look into storage insurance. It is temporary, it is short-term, and it provides the ultimate in peace of mind.
