Folks looking for a secure self storage unit to rent contact us due to a variety of life-event reasons. Regardless of why you need a mini storage unit, let's face it, getting ready to move can be stressful and physical move itself, is simply a lot of work. Our goals are really simple; to provide you the safest possible product and to offer the easiest storage experience we can. Here's how we accomplish this:
Storage is our sole purpose. We don't operate other business! We provide you an un-cluttered, squeaky clean, dry, self storage and temperature-control facilities. We offer sizes from 5x5 to 12x30 and RV 16x50. Now, we have our Temperature-Controlled units at the 3017 Dairy Drive location, with some units having wider, taller 9’ and 14' doors.
Our mini storage facilities are 1-story drive up units so you can drive right up next to your unit for convenient loading & unloading (no hauling down long hallways, no trudging up & down stairs or loading in an elevator). The longest walk to our farthest temperature-controlled units is only 70 feet. Our aisles are wide, well-lit and blacktop paved for clean loading & unloading.
We realize you have a lot of choices in the area. Our mini storage facilities were built just for storage. Our Temperature-Controlled (often called Climate Control), building is professionally designed for temperature-control storage, maintaining a range of 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit (we are not a converted grocery store or renovated warehouse). Our Madison self storage units feature metal buildings with interior metal walls (not drywall, concrete block or plywood) with insulated ceilings (keeps condensation from dripping), raised concrete floors, easy roll-up doors with top and bottom weather stripping, Guardian Cylinder Locks and all aisles are blacktop for less dust. Lastly, for excellent water control we were critical in our site selection and design of our secure self storage facilities.
Location, location, location...this adage is ever so true in self storage garage facilities! Our mini storage sheds in the City of Madison (not rural locations) have buildings are situated right up alongside the road for excellent visibility (not behind larger buildings). Being in the City limits, we are served by Madison Police & Fire Departments, (fire hydrant right out front)! Security cameras are also professionally placed for optimum discouragement and coverage.
We are particular about who we rent to (vs. being "a full at all cost" approach). Being "picky" is so that you are comfortable when at the facility, for your peace of mind. We use the "Guardian Cylinder Lock/key" system for our self storage sheds for rent. Our Madison storage units are highly visible from the road. We are also an approved Training Facility for City of Madison Police K9 dog teams Wisconsin K9 SOS Search & Rescue.
Being proactive, each year we request an on-site visit from the City of Madison District Police Lieutenant to tour the facility and discuss our rental practices. In 2011, in advance of the September 11th 10th anniversary, we requested a meeting with the FBI to discuss our practices and review the FBI's "Suspicious Behavior Awareness & Hazardous Materials" information. Even our lawn mowing is done by a retired Dane County Deputy Sheriff!
Our family is native to the Madison area and hold professional jobs in Marketing and Accounting. We attended college here, was a City of Madison Firefighter and have owned real estate since 1980. Having two young lads; a college freshman (Eagle Scout) will be attending Edgewood and playing soccer goalie and tennis. Our high school freshman also plays tennis, soccer, in addition to violin and his dad's ole saxophone, theatre and dance. Both parents have been involved with coaching sports, youth archery, Ducks Unlimited, Cub Master & Scout Troop Treasurer, providing support in the classroom and serving on various local boards.
Seasonally, there are a lot of reasons you need a mini self storage space. Below is a schedule of when you should be contacting a mini storage facility to discuss availability about a storage unit:
When you visit our family-owned and managed mini storage facility to look at a storage garage, you will be visiting a modern clean storage facility. When you call us, we will discuss what you are storing, when you need a unit by and now long you anticipate staying with us. From this information, we will make size recommendations and schedule a showing appointment with you. At that appointment, we will show you recommended self storage shed size(s) so you can get a visual idea that storage space will accommodate your needs. Once you have decided on a size and if you are comfortable with us, you will sign a lease and be issued a key. Your lease is a month-to-month lease (calendar month). Lastly, we also send you a "Welcome" email to make it easy for you to contact us (SAVE this email to use when notifying us of your move out). You will NOT need to purchase a lock as we will provide you FREE, the "Guardian Cylinder" lock system for the duration of your stay. We accept Visa and Master Card, charging your card at the 1st of each month. If while during your stay, you need to change to a larger size, downsize, or add another unit, we will work to accommodate you.
Remember the "Welcome" email we sent you (that you saved). We require you to email us your move out notice by the 15th the month (most facilities want a 30 day notice). Failure to provide is the emailed notice by the 15th of the month you are leaving forfeits the security deposit. When you vacate, we ask that you "broom clean" the mini storage unit, lock it down secure. IMPORTANT: Return the key(s) you were issued to us in an envelope with your name and unit number and forwarding address written on the envelope. At Marsh Road, drop your envelope into the brass mail slot in the white door at the 1st building. At Dairy Drive, drop your envelope into the black drop box located entry A of the Temperature Controlled building. Envelope with keys MUST be returned on or before the last day of the calendar month.
