What could I use a Long Beach storage unit for?
Self storage can help you conveniently keep your home or office organized. If you’re moving to a new home and need a place to keep your things between houses, a storage unit is a good solution. Or maybe your business needs more space to store inventory or equipment, in which case self storage is a less expensive alternative to expanding or relocating your offices.
Storage units are also a great place to store seasonal items, like lawn care equipment or home décor, and recreational gear. Surfboards and paddleboards can all be stored safely away during the off-season, saving you valuable space in your garage. There are even units available to store boats, jet skis, and more.
For students living on campus at California State University-Long Beach or another nearby college, storing the contents of a dorm room locally in Long Beach mini storage is much easier than packing it all up and lugging it home over long breaks.

What features should I look out for in a unit?
The items you want to store will determine the special features you may need with your Long Beach storage facility. For example, if you’re storing valuable items, you might want to consider facilities that offer additional security, such as video surveillance, gated access, on-site management, or individually-alarmed units.
To see the special storage features offered by facilities in your area, click on the facility page. On that page, there will be a box with facility features—these could be anywhere from 24-hour access, carts and dollies, climate-controlled storage, deliveries accepted, drive-up access, and more. If you’re not sure what features you might need, give the storage facility a call. Most managers or operators will be able to work with you and give professional recommendations to help you get the best storage experience possible.
How do I know what size storage unit to reserve?
First, take a quick inventory of what you’ll be putting into storage. Larger items like appliances or furniture will obviously need more space. But if you’re just cleaning out a closet or some space in your garage, then a 5x5 or 5x10 should do the trick.
Also, USstoragesearch.com has a handy size estimator tool to help you figure out what dimensions will work best for your items. Or you can always call a facility and talk to the manager or operator. Most have a good idea of what can and cannot fit in their units.
Would mobile storage be an option for me?
If you want to save time and effort with storage, mobile storage (sometimes called portable storage) could be right for you! Mobile storage is useful when you don’t want to rent a moving truck, load up your items, drive to a storage facility, and then unload everything. With mobile storage, your unit is delivered right to your home or office. Then, all you have to do is fill it up when you have time, and the mobile storage provider will pick it up. It’s that simple!
How do I start the unit reservation and rental process?
Once you decide on the Long Beach self storage facility that works best for you, either request a quote online or call the facility to make your reservation with them. Some facilities even allow you to make the reservation directly on our website, giving you faster access to the storage you need.
