What Services Does GetStored Cover
GetStored is a full-service storage company, which is good news for most folks. It means that GetStored takes care of all the heavy lifting, loading up of your belongings, transporting the items to your storage unit, and unloading and packing everything neatly to fit inside your unit. This is a good option for most people who hate the idea of schlepping their stuff back and forth to a storage unit and loathe trying to fit their stuff into a tiny cubicle like some sort of Jenga game.
Of course, there is a downside to full-service storage units, and that is the fact that they're off-limits. You can't walk up to your storage unit whenever you want to grab something, or get something out. But more about that in a minute.
GetStored offers white-glove service too. You can have professional movers come to your home to pack up everything for you. So GetStored is really a full-service storage option from start to finish.
GetStored Facility Features
GetStored has more than 500 storage facilities across the United States and Canada (though the website doesn't make it clear where these warehouses are distributed throughout the countries). As mentioned, GetStored is a full-service storage service. That means it does all the work for you, a definite plus for most. But if you're the type who likes to drop in on their belongings now and again, GetStored won't work for you.
You have no direct access to your storage unit at all. No unauthorized personnel is allowed onto the premises (a security measure). This is good news for security, but bad news if you are a more hands-on type of person. If you are interested, here are a few more perks of going with GetStored:
- Virtual inventory
GetStored provides you with a full virtual inventory of all of your stored belongings. This is a great way to remind yourself of what's in the unit (because most people forget!) with just the tap of a button. The virtual inventory takes about 10 minutes, and then it is uploaded to your personal online account which you can check at any point from your phone or tablet. This also gives you a valuation of each item in the list, helpful for determining the appropriate protection plan. Speaking of which...
- Protection plan
GetStored offers protection plans, kind of like an insurance plan, against loss or damage. This is an important policy to have, especially if you are storing valuable items. The protection plan pays out regardless of fault and covers accidents and damages that happen both within the storage facilities and while the professionals are packing and loading your items (even while in your home). What's even more impressive is that the GetStored protection plan even covers your items in transit, either coming from or going to your address. It's an incredibly all-inclusive protection plan, and we think it gives GetStored a strong air of professionalism and integrity.
GetStored storage facilities are built with military-grade security features. In fact, technology and security are one of GetStored's biggest selling points. For one thing, there is 24/7 security surveillance and a live guard on the premises at all times. What's more, GetStored does not allow outside access to the storage units, or even to the facilities.
GetStored Storage Unit Details
GetStored has a wide range of storage unit options, including:
Below, you can see a chart that tells you how much each unit costs, and how much stuff you can fit inside. GetStored offers state of the art storage facilities complete with all the perks, including high-end security and climate-controlled units.
How Much Does GetStored Cost?
GetStored has a simple pricing structure, something we appreciate. You can plan your entire move online. You'll start by picking a unit size (GetStored gives you a good idea of how much you can fit in each size). Then you'll pick a plan (3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12+ months) and schedule a pickup date. If you are happy with the quote, you can put down a deposit of $49 and finish the process.
GetStored offers packing materials free of charge, a nice bonus. Alternatively, you can have GetStored professionals come to your home and pack everything up for you for a few hundred dollars (varies depending on the size of your haul). Depending on how much you are moving and what your schedule is like, this might be a bargain. Here's what you might pay for a 6-12 month plan:
1 bedroom/studio apartment
20 large boxes, queen size bed, chest of drawers, 4 chairs, misc items
Mattresses, sofas, beds, desks, dining room set, multiple boxes
Living room furniture, bedroom furniture, outdoor furniture, garage items, several boxes
Bedroom sets, dining furniture, refrigerator, washer, dryer, garage, and outdoor items, bulky items, etc.
There's also a one-time pickup fee, which varies depending on how much stuff you have.
The length of time you take the storage unit for will lower your monthly cost. For example, a 10x10 unit costs $289 if you take it for just 3-6 months. Meanwhile, it dips down to $219 for a 6-12 month plan and $189 for a 12-month plan.
GetStored Rental and Leasing Options
GetStored has 3 plan options: 3-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12+ months. That means that there's a minimum of a 3-month commitment. Bummer. There is no upper limit. Plans are charged on the same day each month (the pickup day) for the duration of your plan, and the monthly charge is the same throughout the contract length.
GetStored Customer Service
GetStored has customer service via email, phone, and live chat. The team is fairly quick about responding (on average within 5 minutes).

What are People Saying About GetStored
"Wow we couldn't love your company more! Thank you again for all your help. We were flabbergasted at the speed they moved our possessions into our new home. Your people were incredibly polite and very helpful. They were efficient yet never lost the gentleness with which they handled every box or piece of furniture as if it were their own. I was so impressed! The crew that packed us up did a fantastic job. To just say "thank you" seems so small compared to the incredible service we received; we will certainly recommend your honest and trustworthy services to anyone." The Mahans
"GetStored was the best moving experience I've ever had. The team was on-time, I received 2 calls during the move to make sure I was happy with how it was going, and the professionalism was unparalleled. Every detail was looked after. If you're moving and require short-term or long-term storage, GetStored should be your first and only call. Thank you again!" The Bermans
"GetStored thank you for all of your support taking care of all of the details. Everyone on the staff did an amazing job. We really appreciate all you have done." The Carmichaels
GetStored has a lot of perks. While on the pricier side of things, GetStored does offer top of the line security, white-glove packing and transportation, and free packing supplies. You can also get your items out of storage within 72 hours of requesting it. That and the handy virtual inventory make GetStored a great company to use.
