Questions About Storage Units
That depends on what you will be storing. If you have heavy items, being able to drive up to the door of an outside unit is very handy. Most items will be fine in an outdoor, drive-up storage unit as long as they are packed properly. If you are storing any sort of motorized vehicle, there are several different choices. We do have designated parking spaces (both covered parking and uncovered parking) as well as a few enclosed spaces for you to store RV’s, boats, campers, cars, motorcycles, trailers, ATV’s, jet skis, etc.
Think about the items that you will be storing in your unit. Is it mostly boxes and items that can be easily stacked and organized? Are there awkward shaped items that will make it more difficult?
Grab a tape measure or walk it out on the floor so it’s easier for you to visualize the actual space.

Remember that most of our units have 9′ ceilings so you can stack items higher. Just be sure not to have so much weight stacked that you crush or damage your belongings.
