Frequently Asked Questions

Can I rent a storage unit to store my summer items?

You can absolutely rent a storage unit to store your summer items. Storage units provide a practical solution for safely storing seasonal belongings like patio furniture, outdoor equipment, and recreational items during the off-season. By utilizing a storage unit, you can maximize space in your home, protect your belongings from weather-related damage, and benefit from the security and convenience that storage facilities offer. With various unit sizes and rental options available, you can choose a storage solution that suits your needs, whether it’s for short-term summer storage or longer-term arrangements. This approach not only helps declutter your living spaces but also ensures that your summer items are readily accessible when you’re ready to use them again.

The concept of using dedicated spaces for storage dates back centuries, so there isn’t a single individual or inventor who can be credited with “inventing” storage units. Throughout history, people have used various methods and structures to store their belongings, from simple wooden chests to underground cellars.

However, the modern self-storage industry, as we know it today, began to take shape in the mid-20th century. The first self-storage facility, known as “Shurgard,” was opened by the Collum family in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 1958. It offered individual garage-like units for rent on a month-to-month basis, providing customers with a convenient solution for storing their belongings. This idea gained popularity and eventually evolved into the self-storage industry we see today, with a wide range of facilities offering various sizes, features, and services to meet different storage needs.

While the concept of using dedicated spaces for storage has ancient origins, the modern self-storage industry has roots in the mid-20th century and was developed by various entrepreneurs and innovators over time.
