What is self storage?

Think of self storage as an offsite garage or shed where you can keep items you simply don’t have room for. You can choose from large units where you can store furniture items as large as couches, or small units where you can store documents or a few boxes of items you’re not using at the moment. 

Who needs self storage? 

Anyone who wants to clear out some space, store seasonal items, or store items between moves.

Most units, including ours at Space Shop Self Storage, are billed on a monthly basis (on a month-to-month contract) and vary in price based on unit size as well as location. You can find our locations and pricing here
