Pull up with a vehicle or U-Haul truck at any time during the access hours to load and unload your belongings, just like your garage at home.

Is a Drive Up Storage
Unit Right for You?

Unlike a climate controlled or indoor facility, drive up storage units are going to be located outside. That means that the items in storage are going to be more prone to changes in weather and humidity. However, if you are looking for an affordable option that provides convenient and easy access to your belongings, then consider a drive up storage unit.

One of the best ways to determine whether a drive up unit is the best option for you is to consider our climate control checklist. If you answer yes to one or more of the questions below, then you should consider getting a climate control unit, as the benefits of a drive up unit may not outweigh those of a climate controlled unit.

Climate Control Checklist

Climate Control Checklist

If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, consider a climate control unit instead.

  1. Are your items of sentimental or high value to you? (ex: family photos, antiques, etc.)
  2. Does the temperature in your area drop below freezing? (32° F)
  3. Does the temperature in your area rise above 90° F?
  4. Is there high humidity in your area throughout the year?
  5. Do you have a long term need for storage?
