Choosing the right storage facility to protect your possessions is crucial. You’re likely storing items that are valuable and meaningful, and you want to make sure your belongings are safe and secure. There are many options to consider, including:
Indoor or outdoor storage: Most outdoor facilities allow you to drive your vehicle directly to the entrance of your unit, making it easy to handle large items or furniture. Indoor units typically lack drive-up access and may be more suitable for smaller, less heavy items.
Climate control: Some units come with climate control, which protects your belongings from temperature damage and may regulate the unit’s humidity. These units are ideal for storing photographs, vinyl records, electronics or other easily damaged possessions.
Accessibility: Some facilities only allow you to access your unit between certain times, while others are open 24/7. Find a facility that fits your schedule.
Security: While most facilities control access through a gate and fence or locked doors, some units may provide additional security features such as surveillance cameras or 24/7 on-site staff.
Vehicle storage: Some storage facilities have areas to store cars, boats or RVs. This is useful for military members stationed at Tinker Air Force Base who may be deployed overseas or Oklahoma City residents who enjoy boating on Lake Hefner and need a place to store the boat during the winter.

Another thing to consider when choosing a storage unit in Oklahoma City is the storage length. Many facilities offer month-to-month options, but some may require you to sign a longer contract. If you know you’ll need the unit for an extended period, signing a contract may lower your monthly rental fee. Be sure to check the contract carefully to find out if and when your monthly unit price could increase.
