Frequently Asked Questions


Is this location open for business during the COVID-19 Pandemic?

Yes, our store has been identified as an essential business and we are ready to do our part to serve the storage needs of our community.

How have your business practices changed in response to the Coronavirus?

Based on the latest city\state orders, visitors to the property are also encouraged to wear masks over their nose and mouth. We have also adopted new cleaning directives to sanitize heavy touch points such as door handles, cart handles, elevator buttons and keypads on a regular basis.

Where can I find the latest information from Safeguard Self Storage on the COVID-19 outbreak?

Please visit our COVID-19 webpage for the most current information regarding the coronavirus and how Safeguard Self Storage is responding.

What size storage do I need?

There are several factors to consider when deciding what size storage space you will need. First, what is it that you will be storing? Is it just boxes, or will you need to store the entire contents of your home or apartment? If it is just a few boxes, you may only need a locker sized storage unit. Second, you need to consider how you will use the unit. Will you need to visit the storage unit often to retrieve things or will you place the items in storage and not go back again until you are ready to remove your things? If you will be visiting often, you’ll want to leave an aisle so you can get to the items you need to get to. If you don’t plan on going into the unit very often, then you can pack your items tighter and maximize your space. Finally, will you be storing furniture and clothing, or will it be the tools you need for your job? Furniture, clothing, antiques, paper items and household goods should always be stored in a temperature-controlled environment. Click the Space Estimator button above to calculate the amount of space required for your specific storage situation.

What features does this storage facility offer?

This facility features a drive in loading area, heated and air conditioned units, computer controlled access, individual unit door alarms, digital video recording, facility-wide intercom system, highly-qualified and trained solutions staff, carts and dollies, boxes and packing supplies, ACH and credit card payment plans plus rent and Pay Online functionality.

Does this facility have a covered loading area?

This storage facility features a drive-in loading area to protect you and your items from the elements while loading and unloading your storage unit. We have carts and dollies available for free use while onsite to easily move your items to your storage locker. If your storage space is on an upper floor, our extra-large elevators make it easy to bring all of your items upstairs

What is climate control?

All the storage spaces inside our building are air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. They are designed to store your climate-sensitive household items, such as documents, leather goods (like furniture or clothing), antique wooden objects, family photos, or sensitive electronics. The weather outside will not affect your items, because the temperature inside the building is controlled.

What are the minimum number of months I can rent?

Generally, there is no minimum length of stay. Rental agreements are month-to-month, so there’s no commitment to stay longer than you need to.

Do I need a reservation or can I just walk in and rent a space?

Yes, customers can just walk in and rent a storage space, although it is always good to call ahead to make sure the storage unit you need is available. While we have a wide variety of storage unit sizes in our facility, there are times when our most popular sizes fill up. Even if that is the case, we will do our best to find the ideal solution to your storage need.

Does this facility have storage for vehicles?

No, this Safeguard Self Storage location does not have storage for vehicles, but our nearby location at 4534 West North Avenue in Chicago's Hermosa neighborhood has garage type vehicle storage. The vehicle height cannot exceed 6.5 feet, as the door openings are approximately 6.5 feet high. If you have a larger vehicle or are looking for outdoor vehicle storage, our location at 9800 South Harlem Avenue in Bridgeview has outdoor parking spaces in a completely enclosed, well lit parking lot. Access to this area is computer controlled, which limits entry to only our customers who have rented spaces in this area.

What security features does this facility offer?

This facility is equipped with computer-controlled access to the building and storage area, an individual alarm on each storage unit door, and motion sensitive digitally recorded video cameras throughout the facility.

How wide are storage unit doors?

There are two standard storage unit doors, the swing door and the roll-up door. Most of the smaller units, such as lockers, 5x5 and 5x10 will have either swing doors or roll-up doors, which both have about a 3 foot opening. For the large units, such as 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and larger, they will have roll-up doors that have about an 8 foot opening.

Do storage units have electrical outlets?

Storage units are not built with electrical outlets, but that doesn’t mean one can’t be added based on your needs. After you pay for installing the outlet, electricity can be provided to your storage space for a small monthly fee. Just remember, storage spaces are for storing items, not for conducting work or business out of. Please contact our store team for more information.

How tall are storage units?

Our walk-in storage spaces are about 8 feet tall, with the door opening about 6.5 feet high. If available, locker storage units are approximately 4 feet tall with the door opening about 2.5 - 3 feet high.

What is 24 hour access?

24 hour access is a service we provide to our business customers that need access their storage unit(s) at any time. Please contact our store team for more information.

Why is a climate-controlled storage unit important?

All our storage spaces inside the main building are air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. They are designed to store your climate-sensitive household items, such as documents, leather goods (like furniture or clothing), antique wooden objects, family photos, and sensitive electronics. The weather outside will not affect your items, because the temperature inside the building is controlled.
