Default Storage Units

I need to rent storage unit, has anyone used these before? Good/Bad? I have seen several of them on 42 West around Clayton. Most of the items I need to store we have packed in those plastic storage bins, will that be ok? Also have a bed and futon I need to store, any suggestions how to store that should I purchase some type of large bag to seal it?


Any feed back would be great.

Thanks

I rent one at TURNER FARMS SELF STORAGE, it's located on Hwy 50 north of 42 about 3 miles. It is fenced in with a electronic gate, well lighted area 24 hrs. a day. They are reasonable and very clean, just like your garage....

I used Security on 42 next to cleveland rd when I moved 2 1/2 years ago. Just in general what ever you can wrap up is a good idea, I work in pest control and see plenty of infestations develop through issues where items come from a different location. Fleas for example can lay dormant in a cocoon for 10 months or so. 5 star hotels have bedbug problems so dont think its about a dirty place, its just luck.

I hate having to use those storage units. One thing about them is it seems everytime I've used one in the past, I'd pick up all sorts of nails and screws in my tires. Any proprietors on here with self-storage...if you'll use one of those purposefully-made magnetic bars to sweep your drives, it would be much appreciated. I'd even come more likely renting a storage unit from a place that routinely did this. Having to go have tire(s) repaired because of careless renters who drop screws, nails and other junk is a real bummer.

Third vote for Turner Farms Storage. Our company has rented several units from them in the past.

When we first moved here, we rented space at Buffaloe mini-storage, located on Route 70, a bit north of Clayton:
buffaloeministorage.com‎


We kept our travel trailer there, as we rented an apartment at Candlewood apts, until we purchased our home in Garner. We thought the rate was reasonable, and access to our stuff was easy. People are nice, too.

We've used the one right there on Lombard Street beside 70, however that place is a bear to get out at the wrong time of the day.

Has anyone used Eagle storage near the bowling alley on Hwy 42 in Clayton?
