Finding Storage in Chicago, IL

Looking for self storage in Chicago, IL? Here at Storage.com, you can search through a wide selection of Chicago storage facilities and compare locations, pricing, available unit sizes, amenities, and more. You can even reserve a unit directly from our website. Whatever storage solution you're looking for, we can help you find it!

COMMON REASONS FOR USING SELF STORAGE IN CHICAGO

Whether you're moving to the area, living in a downtown apartment or condo, attending college in the city, or in need of storage space for your vehicle, a storage unit in Chicago can help!

Relocating to Chicago

Chicago is home to 2.7 million people, making it the third most populated city in the United States. The large workforce has made the Windy City an ideal location for corporate headquarters, which is why Chicago is home to 12 Fortune 500 companies, including Boeing, McDonald's, United Airlines, Kraft Foods, and Walgreen's. The city is also home to a thriving sports community with professional teams like the Bears, Cubs, White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks. With a great mixture of business and sports, Chicago is a great place to live, work, and play.

If you're moving to Chicago, you might need Chicago mini storage to help with your transition. A storage unit can give you a place to store furniture, appliances, and other belongings while you get settled in your new home.

Storage features to consider when moving to Chicago:

  • Drive-Up Access: Furniture and appliances can be difficult to move due to their size and weight. A unit with drive-up access allows you to pull a car or moving truck right up to your unit to load and unload items.
  • Storage Security: Since you may need to store everything you own while transitioning to a new home, you want to know it's safe. Look for a Chicago storage facility with advanced security features like video surveillance, on-site management, and alarmed units, all of which can prevent theft.
  • Short-Term Rental Agreement: While moving, you may only need a storage unit for a few weeks or months. Find a storage facility with short-term leasing options so you don't get roped into a long-term commitment.

Living in Downtown Chicago

Chicago residents, particularly young professionals, flock to Downtown Chicago because of the lifestyle it provides. Often, they're closer to work, surrounded by shopping opportunities, and have hundreds of restaurants, bars, and clubs at their disposal. Also, they're only a short distance away from attractions like Millennium Park, Navy Pier, the Art Institute of Chicago, Shedd Aquarium, and more. Truly, the downtown area is the place to be in Chicago!

The only problem with living in Downtown Chicago is the lack of space for an expensive price. Because downtown apartments and condos are in high demand, many downtown residents end up sacrificing square footage just to keep rental costs down and still have the ability to live near the action. In other words, there's not much space for seasonal clothing, sporting gear, and other belongings that aren't needed on a daily basis. This is where self storage in Chicago can help. Renting a storage unit in the downtown area means residents can save money on apartment rent while also still having enough space for all of their things.

Storage features to consider when living downtown:

  • Facility Location: One of the main reasons people enjoy living in Downtown Chicago is how close everything is to their home. Make sure your storage facility is also close to your downtown apartment.
  • Unit Size: In most cases, a 5x5 or 5x10 storage unit will be all you need to get back some space in your apartment. These units are the equivalent of a walk-in closet. If you need to store several pieces of large furniture, however, you may need a 10x10 or 10x20 storage unit.
  • Storage Security: The downtown area of Chicago can attract a decent amount of crime, so you'll want to make sure that you choose a Chicago storage facility that can protect your belongings. Look for facilities that have security features like alarmed units, video surveillance, and on-site management.

College Storage

Chicago isn't what one would consider a typical college town, but there are still plenty of students pursuing higher education within the city. With institutions like the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, DePaul University, Loyola University Chicago, and University of Illinois-Chicago, there are a lot of college students living in the city every single year, including students who come from outside of Illinois. 

Once the academic year is over, however, students who live on campus at these schools have to find somewhere to store their belongings over the summer. Rather than renting an expensive moving truck to drive everything home, many college students turn to Chicago mini storage. Then, they can keep dorm furniture and belongings close to their respective campuses and only pay for short-term storage.

Storage features to consider for college storage:

  • Student Deals: Some Chicago storage facilities may offer special discounts for college students at the end of the school year, which is extremely helpful when you're a student on a tight budget. Also, many facilities offer free or discounted moving supplies to help you get everything into your unit.
  • Short-Term Rental Agreement: When using a storage unit over summer break, you're only looking at a few months of use. Find a facility that offers short-term leases so you don't end up paying for an empty storage unit during the school year.
  • Facility Location: A storage facilityclose to campus will make moving in and out of the dorms as simple as possible. Keep in mind that where a facility is located will also affect how much you pay each month.

Chicago Vehicle Storage

Public transportation in Chicago is top-notch, which is why many people go through their day-to-day life without using a personal vehicle at all. For those who work and play in the Chicago area by using the "L" and other great transportation options, your car probably sits for weeks without use, which either means you have expensive monthly payments for a garage or your vehicle is susceptible to weather-related damages, vandalism, and theft. Instead of paying for expensive garages or worrying about your vehicle's safety, place it in self storage.

When it comes to vehicle storage, you have a few options:

  • Outdoor storage is the most affordable option and offers no protection from the elements.

  • Covered storage is slightly more expensive and provides some shelter from the elements.

  • Indoor storage is the most expensive option and provides complete protection from the elements.

Storage features to consider with Chicago auto storage:

  • 24-Hour Access: When storing a vehicle, you never know when you might need it. Don't store your car, motorcycle, or truck at a facility that's only open during regular business hours five days a week. Find a facility that allows round-the-clock access so you can grab your vehicle on your own time.
  • Climate Control: For anyone storing a classic car or sports car, climate-controlled storage for your vehicle is a must. This amenity keeps your unit at a temperature between 55-85°F with low humidity to prevent rust and mechanical damages that can drive down the value of your car.
  • Boat/RV Storage: If you own a boat or RV that you only use on the weekends, Chicago vehicle storage can also help you there, as some facilities will offer boat and RV storage.
