Many units provide controlled access, security cameras and an external gate or fence that requires an access card or password code to enter. Many facilities will provide dollies and other equipment to help you transport items into storage and can also offer boxes, packing supplies and lock and key sets.

There's a good chance that you'll need a short-term or long-term storage facility at some point. Storage is frequently used by families during moving as a convenient way to store household items in a safe and secure place until their new home is ready for them to move in. Some people use storage for items like cars, boats and RV’s, furniture or specialty items like antiques, wine or other items that are valuable. Storage is an easy and economical way to remove clutter from your current home.

Another common reason to use storage is when families are making major changes to a home or when they arrive in a new area and have only temporary housing until they find their new home. Storage is frequently needed when households are making big changes to the size of their residence (e.g. moving from a 2 bedroom apartment to a studio apartment).

Members of the military are also frequent users of storage because of their frequent deployments or transfers. Storage facilities actively seek out military customers and many offer special discounts and incentives.
