Frequently Asked Questions

Finding Storage

Where can I find self storage units near me?

We operate primarily in the southern United States, and members of your community locally run each of our facilities. Explore our complete list of locations to find the most convenient one for you!

How much does a storage unit cost?

We base our storage unit prices on a flexible month-to-month rental model. This flexibility allows you to rent a storage unit for as long as needed without being tied into a long-term contract. We regularly post deals and special offers on select units, so keep an eye out for your opportunity to save on storage or even get your first month free.

What size storage unit do I need?

Everyone’s storage needs are different, so we provide an extensive selection of sizes so you can find the right fit for both your belongings and budget. Check out our self storage size guide to get a better idea of the space each unit offers and all the ways you can pack it for maximum utility.

What You Can Store

Can you store a car in a storage unit?

It all depends on the size of the vehicle and the terms of your local facility’s rental agreement. Bikes, ATVs, and other small motorized vehicles can comfortably fit inside a storage unit, but we recommend you opt for dedicated vehicle storage for larger cars and trucks.

What can you fit in a 10×10 storage unit?

Among our most popular unit sizes, a 10×10 storage unit is suitable for storing the contents of a one-bedroom apartment or a small office. You can easily fit an entire bed set with other furniture and files and still have room to spare. Boldly use shelving to increase the room available in your unit, and use your vertical space. Just be sure your frequently used items are accessible and located toward the door of your storage unit.

Can you live in a storage unit?

No, local laws and facility regulations strictly prohibit living in a storage unit. The design of our storage units is for storing belongings, not as living spaces. Improper use is both a liability for us and, more importantly, a safety risk to you.
