Do You Have Questions About Self-Storage? Get the Answers You Have Been Looking For

Self-storage is a great option for all sorts of needs, from businesses that need to store excess furniture until it is needed again, to single folks who want to save heirloom furniture until they have more room in their homes. At Spaceman Storage we find that many people have questions about the options available. Check out these questions and the answers, then contact us at 562-696-3924 if you have questions.

What Types of Items Do I Put in Self-Storage?

Whatever you want, within reason. Do you have extra books, clothes, tools, furniture, bikes, boats – or anything else cluttering up your home, garage, or office? There are a few things you shouldn’t bring out our storage facility, including anything that can spoil, is flammable, or is hazardous. We also do not recommend anything that may be heat sensitive (like photos) because we do not have climate-controlled units.

Are My Items Safe in Self-Storage?

Yes. Our facility has gated access so only those who are customers can access it. We also have 24-hour video surveillance. There are staff members on-site during our regular business hours, and we also have a resident manager who is constantly looking for suspicious activity. They live on-site to guard against unauthorized persons accessing the property.

We take extra steps to keep our storage units in the best shape possible and we will respond right away to any damage that is caused. That said, we do recommend that you protect your own belongings by getting an insurance policy.

Do I Have to Rent a Storage Unit for 12 Months or More?

No. You will sign a contract but we are very flexible regarding what that contract will specific. For example, you could rent on a month to month basis. If you want to rent for longer you can do that. You can even prepay for 12 or more months to get a significant discount on the rent amount.

How Much Space Should I Get?

That depends on a variety of factors but we offer a convenient storage calculator that makes it easy to estimate how much room you need. If you are still not sure, come by our units to see in person. It can be very helpful to see the units in person before making a choice.

Can I Store a Vehicle?

We do not have outdoor vehicle storage spaces. That said, we do have a few lower-level units that may be able to accommodate your vehicle, depending on its size. Options include 10×30 and 12×20. Call Spaceman Storage at 562-696-3924 for availability or to get answers to any other questions you have.
