Why would I need a Nashville storage unit?
People use storage for all kinds of reasons. If need somewhere to keep all of your stuff while you’re waiting to move into your new home, temporary storage is a great option—especially so you don’t have to keep everything you own in a hotel room with you or at a family member or friend’s home. The same goes for remodeling, too.
College students at Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt University, and Belmont University also use temporary storage while they’re on break from school. That way, they don’t have to drag all of their dorm furniture and belongings home with them just to bring it all back again after the break is over.
But storage isn’t strictly for temporary use. Many storage renters keep their units for years, storing personal items, additional vehicles, recreational vehicles like boats and RVs, business equipment or inventory, golf carts, sporting gear, and more. So, basically, you can use storage for just about anything.
What storage unit size do I need?
It all depends on how much stuff you want to store. If you have furniture and other large household items, you might want something along the lines of a 10x10 or 10x15 unit. If you’re storing smaller items like a few boxes, a 5x5 or 5x10 will work.

What is mobile storage?
Mobile (sometimes called portable) storage is a great option for people who don’t want to pack up their items, drive to a Nashville storage facility, and unload all of their items. People who are moving or remodeling also like this option.
With mobile storage, a storage unit is delivered to you, and you fill it up on your own time. When you’re ready for the mobile unit to be moved to a new location or stored at your mobile storage provider’s warehouse, you just call and they’ll come get it.
What kind of security can I get?
Most of the Nashville mini storage locations featured on USstoragesearch.com have great security amenities, such as video surveillance, alarmed units, gated access, and on-site management. If you’re worried about the safety of your items, you can use our advanced search tools to find facilities that offer these types of amenities.
Do facilities offer move-in help?
Some storage facilities offer truck rental or moving carts to help move you into your Nashville storage locker. Sometimes, these will even be free services when you rent from certain facilities. It’s always a good idea to call the facility you’re interested in to see what they can do.
Do I need climate-controlled storage?
If you’ll be storing vintage pieces, wooden furniture, electronics, photos, a wine collection, firearms, musical instruments, or other sensitive items, climate control is necessary. Climate-controlled storage protects your items from mold, mildew, and other structural damages caused by extreme temperatures and humidity. Although it’s a more expensive feature to have, it’s worth the peace of mind.
