Storage just got easier!

At CubeSmart ® we offer the storage, service, and solutions you've been looking for. We are a customer service oriented storage company with locations throughout the United States. You're sure to find a self storage facility just around the corner from your home or place of business.

What is self storage?

Self storage is an affordable, efficient way for you to store your life's possessions. Self storage makes it easy to store items of all shapes and sizes in one convenient storage location.

How do I use it?

Self storage at CubeSmart can be used for many purposes:

  • As an extension of your home; a place to store seldom used items
  • To store seasonal items such as decorations or sports equipment
  • As a business storage solution to de-clutter your office
  • To free up garage space so you can actually park your car in it again
  • and many more!

How do I know what size I need?

Create a list of the items that you are going to be storing. Choosing the right size unit will ensure that you only pay for the storage you need. Visit our interactive size guide to determine exactly what size you will need, and then check out our helpful tips for maximizing your storage space.

How long do I need storage?

CubeSmart recognizes the need to move your items out when the time is right. Our month to month rentals give you the flexibility to choose just how long you require your unit. Need more helpful tips? Please call one of our helpful self storage experts at a local facility or reach us at 1-877-279-7585. CubeSmart offers storage, service and solutions that will exceed your expectations.

What is climate-controlled and do I need it?

Climate controlled storage units are temperature controlled so your belongings are not exposed to extreme temperatures. Our climate controlled facilities are housed in an indoor finished building where dirt and dust are less likely to penetrate. This type of environment is ideal for storing furniture, metal, fabric, and other items.

Do I need to have a lock?

You provide the lock ensuring that you, and only you, have access. Don’t have a lock? No problem. We offer a wide range of locks, packing and moving supplies to make your move stress-free. Even better, we offer all of these great moving supplies at very affordable prices.

Do I need insurance for my stored goods?

Yes, you are responsible for those items you store at CubeSmart and insurance for those items is required. We offer affordable protection plan options at the store to protect your stored property. In the event that you are already covered, a copy of the declaration’s page must be available at the time of rental.

How do I get my items to the unit?

Many of our locations have extra wide drive aisles, allowing your rental truck or movers easy access to your unit. We offer FREE moving trucks, hand-carts and/or dollies at many of our facilities.* We recommend contacting one of our helpful managers to check truck and hand-cart availability.
