We recently posted an article detailing what you should never store in a self storage unit, so it’s only fair that we now post an article telling you all the things you can store in mini storage.

We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-439-1380 for information about secure self storage at our storage facilities.

And now, things you CAN store in self storage units at Blue Mound 287

Auto storage

You may not have thought is possible, but many people use a mini storage unit for auto storage. Think about it. A 10’x10’ unit will easily store a vehicle.  It will ever provide extra room for you to do small repairs to that vehicle.  The price of such a unit at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage?  $89, or $107 for climate controlled storage of the same size.  Now compare that price to what you would pay for auto storage in an auto storage facility, or even a long-term parking garage.

You will be pleasantly surprised by what you find comparing prices.

Boat storage

Same situation, same sized storage unit for a small fishing boat, same price. Compare that price to the price of boat storage at a marina?  About half what you would pay at a marina?  Can you really afford to pay more for boat storage when you don’t need to do so?

RV storage

Blue Mound 287 Self Storage has covered outdoor storage for RV’s, and many storage facilities across the U.S. offer the same service.  Wouldn’t you like to claim back your front yard and park that RV in a secure facility at a low price?

Trailer storage

Same story with trailer storage . . . get that trailer out of your yard, where it can be vandalized or stolen, and park it in a secure facility for a very reasonable price.

Normal household goods

Practically everything in your home can be stored in a storage unit. We do caution you about one thing, namely electronics like computers.  Unless you rent a climate controlled storage unit, the electronics can be damaged by oxidation in extreme temperatures.  Without climate control, you are better off storing your electronics somewhere else like a family member’s home.

And yes, certain valuables

In our previous article, we cautioned against storing valuables in a min storage unit.  At Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, we are going to walk back on that statement a bit. Our security is second to none. We have perimeter fencing, security camera, computer access cards, and on-site management.  We are so confident in our security system that we say sure, why not, go ahead and store your baseball card collection, or your Nutcracker collection, at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage.  But, if you live in another city, and the storage facility does not have the four-layers of security offered at Blue Mound, you are better off renting a safety-deposit box in a bank for those valuables.
