About Us

Our family is native to Madison. My bride and I have held professional careers in Corporate Marketing, Real Estate, Accounting, and Entrepreneurial Program Development. We graduated college here, was a City of Madison Firefighter and have owned real estate since 1980. Both our sons assist in the business.

Storage is all we do! We don’t operate other businesses! We provide you with uncluttered, squeaky-clean, dry, self-storage and climate-control facilities. Our non-heated drive up unit sizes are; 5’x5’ to 12’x30’ with some 10’x35′ and 16’x50’ RV units. Our climate-controlled unit sizes are; 5’x5′ to 10×30′ and jumbo 12’x30′ and 13’x33′ units. Our units 12’x30′ and larger have wider and taller doors, up to 11’ wide and up to 14′ tall. All units are 24/7 access. All units are ground level, easy drive up access for you or your moving truck (with no steps, long distances or elevators to deal with)!

We pride ourselves in working to make a difference and set positive examples. We have been involved with; coaching sports, youth archery, Cub Master & Scout Troop Treasurer, and providing support in the classroom, and serving on various local boards. With a desire to support green initiatives, our 4019 Marsh Rd location is 96% self-sufficient via solar panels and our company vehicles are either Hybrid or EV!

Our Friends & Partners in Safety

Safety Is Our #1 Goal!TM Our perspective on safety goes beyond just the self-storage facility. Working with Madison Police and Madison Fire Department staff, we have authored a variety of safety messages involving safety around the home, as you travel and health information and for your student while they are away from home, at college for the first time. Adding further support to the Dane County Sheriff’s Freeway Service Truck program, we have developed and printed the “Move Over or Slow Down” educational brochure distributed by Sheriff’s Deputies.

Read the Press Release

“Just like EVERYONE else, I got great service from Dave at Applewood. My trailer was stored outside, at the Dairy Drive location. I have stored my trailer many places in 3 states, but I never felt it was really secure until I stored it at Applewood. Great security, easy 24/7 access, a clean, PAVED (!) parking pad, easy payment options, and easy to follow instructions made this a really good experience. The fact that my rental is also slightly supporting our “Officers In Blue” was also a plus. If I need to store anything else while I’m in the Madison area, Dave WILL get a call from me. Thank You Applewood.”
