Reserve and Move In

Reserve your space for free with no obligation. For some locations, you can save time by completing your rental online. Otherwise you can complete your paperwork in person on move-in day.

Free Reservations

We offer the convenience of free reservations. There's no obligation and you can cancel at any time if your plans change.

Specials and Discounts

To help make your move-in a little less stressful, you'll only pay $1 for the first month's rent on many of our units. If you're looking for great discounts, you'll always get our best price when you reserve online.

Rental Terms

All our rental agreements are month-to-month. You decide how long you stay, and you can move out at any time.

Vehicle Storage

We have a variety of options for storing your car, boat, motorcycle, RV or other vehicle, including uncovered, covered and fully enclosed spaces. In order to store a vehicle, it does need to be running, registered and insured.

Restricted Items

For your safety, there are some restrictions on what you can store, such as live plants and animals, flammable liquids, explosives, lithium batteries and drugs. Your rental agreement has the full list of restrictions, but you get the idea; we want everyone’s Public Storage experience to be great, and your consideration goes a long way toward making that possible.

Self Storage Cost

Self storage prices can vary based on the location and the unit features you need. Search for spaces online to find the best prices in your area. We also offer move-in specials for the first month's rent on many spaces.

Moving Out

When it's time to move on, let us know by scheduling your move-out date up to 60 days in advance in the app, or in the Storage Units section of your online account. If you need more time, it's easy to change or cancel your notice. On move-out day, all you need to do is remove your lock and empty out your space. Once our team has a chance to confirm on our end you’ll receive an email that it’s all complete. This could take up to 48 hours.

Schedule Move-Out
