Selecting Self Storage Step 3

3 May 2010 by

Create a list of potential self storage facilities.

Now that you have narrowed down the amenities you are looking for, it’s time to start searching for self storage facilities in your area. Using an online directory like will allow you to access all of the self storage facilities in your area with one click. When using you will be able to narrow your self storage search by zip code and then view the locations on google maps. will also give you access to the facilities personal website so you can compare your list of amenities must haves, which you created in step 2, against what the facilities offers.

Creating a spread sheet using the amenities you ranked as 1-3 will help you narrow down the facilities that you are interested in renting from. Place an x in the column of the amenity if the facility offers that particular amenity. Here is an example using Portland Self Storage:

Convenient Location Climate Control Security Cameras On-site Manager Renters Insurance
Storage Containers Mobile Mini
North Plains RV & Self Storage
Pearl Self Storage
Money Saver Gresham
Money Saver Johnson Creek

If the facility does not offer the amenity that you ranked as a number one priority then the facility should be crossed off of the list.
