Let’s take a quick trip back into the past, when storage spaces were used to hold the excess “junk” all families have spilling out of their garages.  Homeowners would do their annual spring-cleaning exercise, and inevitably a storage unit was needed to hold the excess once that spring cleaning was accomplished.

Or a family would be moving from one home to another, possibly downsizing, and there simply was no space in the new home for all of the excess of the old home.

That’s how it once was in the mini storage business, and is primarily the reason why so many storage units opened up across the county.

It is not, however, how it is today with storage facilities. Today, storage facilities are used for a myriad of uses, and in this article we will talk about some of those uses you may not have thought of.

We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth are. Call us at 817-439-1380 for all of your mini storage needs.  Now, though, let’s look at the multiple storage solutions we offer.

Auto Storage

Why pay too much at a traditional auto storage building when you can pay under $100 per month for auto storage at storage facilities i.e. mini storage?  At Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, a 10’x10’ storage unit will cost you $89 per month. That’s the same size as a small garage, and infinitely more secure than a garage.

Boat Storage

Talking about paying more for storage, have you priced boat storage at a marina of late?  Again, a 10’x10’ mini storage unit, perfect for a small fishing boat, will cost you $89 per month at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage. Compare that price to a marina and you will come away suitably impressed.

RV Storage

Want to winter you RV in a secure self storage facility? You can at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and with 24/7 access, you can take that RV for a short vacation any old time you have the traveling itch.  With wide aisles and easy access, storing your RV at a mini storage facility is the perfect solution, a much more attractive option than having your RV parked in your driveway for months at a time.

Trailer Storage

The same is true of trailer storage. Don’t you have better things to do in your yard than to store your trailer there? Wouldn’t you like to use your yard as a yard rather than a storage space for a trailer you sometimes use?


Hobby enthusiasts or amateur woodworkers, you’ll be happy to know that more and more of you are using mini storage units as a place to work on your hobbies or your crafts.  Move all of your “stuff” out of your garage and into a mini storage. It is safe, it is private, and it is the ultimate “man cave” for a guy looking for some privacy to play with his toys.  And that is true for women too, of course.

And Traditional Storage

And yes, storage buildings are still used to store all of the excess after your next spring-cleaning project.
