We know that choosing a storage unit is more than just finding a box with four walls and a lock to store your things. You want to make sure that your prized possessions are in a safe, secure, clean location, watched over by people who care.

As a locally- and family-owned business with deep storage industry experience, we designed and built Otto Self Storage properties to feel like safe, welcoming homes away from home for your belongings. So, we thought “outside the box” to bring you the four “C’s” that drive our mission:

Comprehensive Security

We love creating and maintaining state-of-the-art storage facilities with a hometown feel for our customers who quickly come to feel like family. So, let us tell you more about our family:

Family Owned & Operated Storage

We’ve got a long history in the self-storage business, and building five-star properties that serve communities in Missouri is our dream project! And, the entire family is involved: Michelle, a seasoned veteran in the self-storage industry, oversees all business operations with the help of her husband, Jim, offering behind-the-scenes support. Daughter Jessika serves as Business Manager, handling daily operations, accounting, HR, marketing, customer relations, and more. Family friend Tyler and brother-in-law Ron round out our stellar team of property managers!

At Otto Self Storage, we pride ourselves on the personalized experience we offer our customers. Our tenants aren’t just numbers to us. Our friendly and well-trained staff works hard to help make your moving or storage experience easy and convenient. With a combined 25+ years experience in the self-storage business, we offer a level of Platimum Customer service that the “Big Guys” can’t beat. It’s true! Our reputation speaks for itself with our impeccable five-star rating by our happy customers.
