OTTO SELF STORAGE HAS THE ANSWERS!
On the other hand, if you need a storage unit for long-term storage or for items you don’t access often, you can really pack in a lot into a smaller storage unit. We don’t want you to overpay for space you don’t need, so we provide a couple of handy resources to help — like our Size Guide and Storage Calculator.
Need more help? Please feel free to stop by our convenient location and our friendly and experienced staff will be happy to show you the various unit sizes available and offer you storage tips to help you save space and money.
We try to keep our prices as low as we can without sacrificing quality. We also price-match our competition when you bring proof of their current rates — and you’ll be surprised how much more affordable our rates are if you’re willing to drive just a few extra miles. Here, you’ll still find all the same (if not more) features and amenities like at the big-box chains, just at a lower price.
We’ve dedicated an entire section of our website to Business Storage. Check out our Business Storage Basics and Benefits sections for helpful information.
If you’re storing items for your business, just a helpful reminder that you can write off your business storage unit on your business taxes. Instead of classifying it as a business deduction like you would any dedicated workspace at home, you should classify it as “rent” — since technically it is leased space. It’s also a good idea to take photos of your business storage unit for each tax year. After all, you should make sure you enjoy the full tax deduction you legally deserve. Please consult your tax professional for advice.

We’ve installed high-definition security cameras around our storage facility for 24-hour surveillance. Our facility requires a security code for entry and offers ample security lighting.
We also have on-site management to help keep an eye on things. What exactly does this mean? Every day, we conduct morning and afternoon property walk-throughs to monitor activity, including thorough lock checks. If we see that your unit has been locked incorrectly, we’ll contact you.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Our five-star reviewer Amanda says about our Fountain Lakes Storage location:
“I would not choose any other storage facility to hold my belongings. They are very clean and it is always nice and cold when I go in there. One time I even locked my lock wrong and they called me to let me know. Everyone there is very sweet and helpful!”
This is particularly beneficial for those managing a handicap (we also offer handicap-accessible units), are not especially strong, or are prone to tripping and falling. Lugging a TV, couch, or other heavy items up or down several flights of stairs (or even getting them in and out of an elevator) can be a taxing venture, but our ground-level storage units and wide loading zone entry and corridors will make it easy to load and store your things.
We’ve got you covered! Just visit our office to purchase boxes, tape, additional storage unit locks, and other small moving supplies. We also have courtesy dollies and hand carts available.
We also appreciate that our tenants take time out of their busy schedules to give us 5-star reviews and recommend us to others. You can check out our latest customer reviews on our Reviews page.
