The smallest self storage unit at Blue Mound 287 is a 5’x5’ storage unit, and that rents for $45 per month or $51 per month for climate controlled storage.  Units increase in size from there, finally reaching the largest storage unit, a 20’x30’ unit, which rents for $345 or $430.

Rentals are month-to-month. You are under no long-term obligation; rent for one month, rent for six, or rent for a year.

Reasons why self storage is good for most homeowners

There are three main categories of people who rent a self storage unit: those looking to de-clutter the home; those looking to store belongings in-between moves; and those looking to use a storage unit as a workshop/hobby location.

The first category is probably the most common.  $45 per month is a small price to pay so that you don’t need to trip over your excess on a daily basis. Let’s face it, most homes have more belongings than they have room for.  Most homes have countless boxes in the garage or spare bedroom, boxes of “stuff” which may, or may not, be needed during the year. Or people have heirlooms or collectibles, and they don’t feel like they can keep those items safe at home, so they look for secure self storage as a solution.

The second category is for those people between moves. Perhaps they have been renting, they need to move a newly-purchased home, but they need a place for their furniture for a month or two until the final move.

The third category is increasing in popularity. We have a number of customers who use their self storage unit for their hobbies, whether it be woodworking or painting or a model railroading.

Whatever the reason, self storage is popular in the United States, and that popularity would not exist if self storage were not affordable.
