Are there any items that I am NOT able to store?
  • Units are not habitable for humans nor animals of any kind
  • Do not store hazardous or flammable substances nor illegal items
  • Do not store jewels, furs, heirlooms nor works of art or other irreplaceable items with an emotional attachment
  • Items stored should have a value of $5000 or less
  • No food is to be stored in units
What is the best way to pack a unit?

Larger and more infrequently used items should go in the back of the unit. Remember to keep a walkway in the center of your unit to more easily access items. Always keep items labeled and a list of items stored, even a photo on the outside of each box will allow you to "see" what's inside.

Do I need storage insurance?

We take our job to protect your valuables very seriously, BUT sometimes, things go wrong….

We never know what to expect, sometimes we do everything right but life throws us a curve, and the worst happens. That’s why we offer one of the industry’s premier insurance policies. Unlike other insurance companies, Bader insurance:

  • Settles claims quickly (you don’t have to wait until your homeowner’s policy settles first), usually within a week - 10 days

  • Pays the full loss up to the insured amount (less a $100 deductible)

  • Is backed by an A-rated insurance company

Just part of our commitment to helping you “store with peace of mind”

What type of lock should I use?

Don't skimp on your lock!

When criminals are on the prowl to commit a crime, their primary target is the low-hanging fruit. In this case, it’s the storage unit they can most efficiently break into. Cheap padlocks can’t resist the force of even the most basic lock cutters. 

Within seconds the valuables contained in self storage units are exposed to criminals. We only sell the industry's best steel locks. Our locks will protect your self storage unit better than any other lock on the market AND we offer them at one of the lowest prices around!
