A Smooth Transition...Very Accomodating
My transitional move into transferring my personal items into the storage space at Planet Self-Storage was very accommodating and self-explanatory. The head coordinator Beth (at the front desk) was affable and helpful especially in her instruction regarding the paperwork that could have been tedious but was not courtesy of her patience and professionalism. In fact, Beth even did me a big favor that seems rather subtle in nature but still it was appreciated. When I had previously reserved a special storage space weeks ago which was unavailable I was told that this mishap was rectified by the storage facility giving me a storage space that was bigger than what I previously asked for in my reservation request. And I get to keep my bigger storage space for the same pricing of the original cheaper storage bin that I fingered earlier. Granted that it was not my fault for this mishap but Planet Self-Storage simply gave me a storage space that was unexpected and certainly welcomed! The monthly price for the storage space is more than reasonable so that is worth the elation for your pocket. The rules and regulations and overall operations of the storage facility was explained with easy-going confidence. The physical aspect of moving your items into the storage space was not as arduous as one would expect. The moving carts are readily available and even a step ladder is ready for usage if necessary. Importantly, the storage facility is neat, organized and spotless. As long as one follows the protocol of signing in and out at the front desk, performing their storage moving in and out without conflict or chaos and return equipment accordingly the vibe at Planet Self-Storage should be rewarding and eventful as a venue where your stored life's belongings should be safe and sound without incident.

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.
