Description of service

I rented a storage unit for the summer, for $90/month to keep my more irreplaceable school stuff in (I am a teacher) since our school was undergoing leadership changes and various people were in and out of the school all summer.

I had access to my storage unit during business hours, which were 9-5 every day except Sunday. It was the smallest unit they had, the size of a small walk-in closet, and it was not climate controlled.

Review of Service

This was actually being financed by a friend of mine as a gift, and she wasn't too picky about money, so I'm not sure if this was a good value or not.

It was inconvenient to only have access to the storage unit from 9-5, not for me as much as for my friends with trucks who were helping me, most of whom worked from 9-5.

The person working at the counter, in charge of the keys, never checked to see if I was really the person renting the storage unit. If I had had some reason for trying to get into a different unit, I'm sure he would have accepted that without question. I did have my own padlock for the unit, but I think he was supposed to check and see if I needed to go into a certain area, and he never did. Aside from that, the staff was very professional and courteous.


Check the hours and make sure the hours are convenient for you, not just the location. Also, some storage facilities will provide the first month free if you rent a unit, so check on that, or any other deals that might be out there!
