Looking for the right self storage unit?

Published on 9/27/2022
There are several things to think about when you're looking in the Abilene, TX area for the best self storage facilities. Here are some things to keep in mind during your search:


Is the facility accessible 24/7/365?  Some self storage places will only allow access during 9-5 business hours and won't be open on major national holidays.

Climate control.

Here in west Texas you really need to look for units that are temperature and humidity-controlled to preserve delicate and valuable belongings.

Size of Storage

One of the more common issues we see is people not renting a large enough storage unit.  But, on the other hand, don't pay for more space than you really need. There's a wide range of options, from the size of a  small closet to large warehouse style storage spaces.


Is the company transparent about its security measures? Are there multiple points of entry? Alarms? Video monitoring? Do the locks inspire confidence? Is it well-lit? Does the property feel safe and secure?

Pricing, contracts offered, and deals.

Some companies have month-to-month contracts. Those are great if you need short term storage or don't want to commit to an annual contract. And many self storage companies offer discounts as a sign-on perk or after you refer someone.
