Great storage facility
Overall I'm very happy with this place. Reasonably priced, seems to have good security (better than others I've used), easy access, and the staff on site has been very friendly and helpful. My one big complaint would be that if you have an issue that's site specific, it's extremely difficult to ask it over the phone. Calls are usually rerouted to the main office, and the people there know absolutely nothing about the site. If you ask to be connected to someone at the site who knows something about the facility, they won't let you. I had one conversation where I had many specific questions for the staff working there, and instead of connecting me directly they put me on hold each time and called the staff there to ask, then got back to me with what they said in response. It was absurd and took a lot of time. Another time, they gave me the flat out wrong answer and then when I spoke with the people on site they told me "I'm sorry they told you that, those people know nothing about our site."

excellent staff.
Great first time storage experience. Price was a sticker shock only because many friends said they paid soo much less. (Maybe they lied).

This is the best storage site in Oakland!
At Devon storage I dealt with an employee named Meshana. She was professional and extremely informative. The site is very clean and there's always carts available. Security cameras are everywhere. The place feels secure. This storage site is clearly run well!

Best I could find in the area...
Good location for downtown Oakland. Seems to be the best price-wise for the surrounding area. And wonderful, friendly staff. The downside - and a big one - was the cleanliness of the basement, and I didn't feel safe alone. While I was downstairs waiting for my movers with a load, a creepy man hit on me and made me very uncomfortable. With that, the basement units didn't seem as clean as other floors. I asked to be on a waiting list to move to a unit on a main floor, which would address both of my concerns. I hope to hear back...

Frequently Asked Questions

What size storage unit do I need?

Hover over the different sizes under the 'Available Units' section for this facility to see what fits in each space. When choosing a size, remember to think about how you intend to use the unit. Are you trying to cram it as full as possible, or do you need some extra room inside? We always recommend leaving a pathway for easy access to items at the back of the unit.

How tall are storage units?

Storage units typically have a ceiling height of about eight feet. Special units like "storage lockers" are around five feet or less. Units for vehicle storage will have higher ceilings to accommodate RVs and boats. Call us if you need more help on choosing the best unit size for your car, boat, motorcycle or RV!

Do I need climate-controlled storage?

Climate control is crucial if you live in an extreme climate or a location prone to swings in temperature. Opt for climate control if you're storing items like leather furniture, antique woods, important documents, photos or electronics.

What are the minimum number of months I can rent?

Storage leases are typically month-to-month, so you are not obligated to a set rental length. However, many facilities offer promotions and discounts that require a minimum rental length in order to be redeemed (for example: First month free with two-month minimum). These terms will be detailed above.

Do I need a reservation or can I just walk in and rent a space?

Most facilities welcome walk-ins and don't require a reservation. However, because prices fluctuate often based on demand and availability, we recommend booking beforehand to secure the unit and price before it changes. By using SpareFoot you can compare units and prices near you and then book online or by phone for free.

What is climate control?

Climate control keeps your belongings safe from extreme temperatures and will protect your items from warping, melting and discoloring. Most facilities that offer climate control will maintain your unit between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

How wide are storage unit doors?

There are two types of storage unit doors:

  • 1. Swing door: A standard room door.
  • 2. Roll-up door: Rolls up just like the door on your garage.
Roll-up doors are eight to ten feet wide. Note that there are typically six inches on each side between the unit door and the edge of the wall.

What is 24-hour access?

This means you have the ability to access your storage unit whenever you need to—even when the office is closed.

Do storage units have electricity or electrical outlets?

Although electrical outlets are not common for most storage units, some facilities offer them as an amenity for select units. Storage units with electrical outlets will have "Electricity" listed under the "Features / Amenities" section of this page.
