What Services Does Simply Self Storage Cover

Simply Self Storage, as the name implies, offers self-service storage, with a variety of extra features to fit most scenarios. Units are available in a wide range of sizes, starting at 52 ft, and going up to 10ft x 30ft, large enough for most personal boats.

Contracts are monthly, and come with built-in insurance up to $2,000. You can either make a booking online, for which special discounts may apply, or else call or visit on-site. It’s recommended to call if you want to store a vehicle, as the online booking form doesn’t specify which indoor units are appropriate for vehicles.

Simply Self Storage Facility Features

Facilities and features vary from location to location, and from state to state, so be sure to call ahead to make sure any special facilities you need are available. That being said, most locations have the full range of features, as listed here:

  • Climate-controlled units

  • Wide range of sizes (5x5ft to 10x30ft)

  • Built-in insurance (up to $2,000)

  • Commercial & business storage

  • Long-term self storage

  • Indoor and drive-up storage

  • Monthly contracts

  • Discounts for online rentals / reservations

  • RV and boat storage

  • Supplies for packing and moving

  • Truck rentals

  • On-site security and managers

  • Video surveillance

  • Electronic gates (keycode access)

Simply Self Storage Security

Security features vary per location, but most include electronic gates with keycode access, video surveillance, on-site security and manager during business hours, and perimeter fencing. Their website does advise that all customers should come prepared with their own heavy-duty lock to secure valuables, and to only give the key to those one trusts.

Simply Self Storage Storage Unit Details

Storage units range from 3’ x 3’ up to 10’ x 30’, so no matter your storage needs, there’s a unit the right size for you. The smallest units are perfect for storing a few boxes and a bag, and Simply Self Storage even offers 3’ x 3’ wine storage units with cooling systems and humidifiers for perfectly stored wine.

Largest units can fit small, personal boats, vintage cars, or more. The 10’ x 30’ unit, according to the website, is large enough to hold a four- or five-bedroom home, with all the appliances, garage items, couches, screens and media, and more. Some locations even had 10’ x 40’ units.

The sizing guide is very useful, with diagrams and information on what can be stored in what units.

How Much Does Simply Self Storage Cost?

Online reservations often come with a discount, typically around 20%. We were able to find discounted storage solutions for almost every size and unit type by looking online. As is to be expected, features like 1st-floor access and climate control make for more expensive units.

Simply Self Storage Rental and Leasing Options

Rentals are available on a month-to-month contract, with insurance included, although there are long-term storage facilities available as well. Contact local dealers directly to discuss discounts for long term storage.

Simply Self Storage Customer Service

Simply Self Storage’s lines are always open: you can call the company 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, either to book a storage unit or to ask a question about your storage. Additionally, you can submit a request for help through the website, or contact them through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

"The facility manager is FANTASTIC!. I moved here in Minnesota from Florida. Needed 2 10x20 units, which I reserved through her. The entire place was spotless! She was so professional and helpful at the same time. She explained everything as this was my first time using any storage unit. payment was quick and easy as well...Then came the biggest hurdle..the xtra large moving van. Again she had all the assistance needed at the tip of her hand making everything go smoothly.. This is a big shout out for the facility + it's staff!!!"

Bottom Line

All in all, Simply Self Storage is a good choice for anybody looking to store furniture, documents, vehicles, or even wine. Security features are OK—most sites don’t have 24/7 security—but with gated access and $2,000 built-in insurance, you can still rest easy.

The wide variety of services, including climate control, first-floor reservation, and large range of sizes, from 52 ft all the way up to 10’ x 40’, with variable pricing, means that you should have no trouble finding a storage solution to fit your budget.
