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!

We Proudly Support

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.

“Super nice storage space! Our company has a whole bunch of equipment, marketing booths, banners, etc that we wanted out of our basements. I just loved how clean and new everything is at Applewood Storage. The lights are bright. The floors are polished. The roll-doors and locks are good quality and in good working order.

When you work with Dave, you know he’s an “attention to details” kind of guy. He takes pride in his place, and I think his energy attracts conscientious renters. Plus, I like how he gives back to the police community. Even when I go there by myself, I feel super safe. And with all the security he has in place, I am confident my stuff is safe.”
