Frequently Asked Questions
What size Temple storage unit 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 storage, clothing, antiques, paper items, and household goods should always be stored in a temperature-controlled environment. Review our space estimator to calculate the amount of space required for your specific storage situation.
What features does your Temple storage facility offer?
Our Temple storage facility features a drive-in loading area, heated and air-conditioned units, computer-controlled access, 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, and tools that allow you to rent and pay online.
Does your Temple storage facility have a covered loading area?
Yes, our Temple 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 also have carts and dollies available for free use while onsite to easily move your items to your storage unit. If your storage space is on an upper floor, our extra-large elevators make it easy to bring all your items upstairs.
Does your Temple storage facility have room for vehicles?
There are two types of vehicle storage, garage-type vehicle storage and outdoor parking. Unfortunately, we do not offer outdoor parking at this location, but we do have garage-type vehicle storage at Safeguard Self Storage at 3300 Frankford Avenue. Only smaller vehicles, such as cars or small boats, can be stored in our Temple storage spaces because the door openings are approximately 6.5 feet high.
Why is a climate controlled storage unit in Philadelphia important?
All the storage units inside our Temple facility are air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter. They are designed to store your climate-sensitive items, such as documents, leather goods (like furniture or clothing), antique wooden objects, family photos, or sensitive electronics. Weather fluctuations outdoors will not affect your items, as the temperature inside the building is controlled.
What is 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 at our Temple facility, 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 for your storage needs.
What is 24-hour access?
24-hour access is a service we provide to our business customers that need to access their storage unit(s) at any time. Please contact our store team above for more information.
What security features does your Temple storage facility offer?
This facility is equipped with computer-controlled access to the building and storage areas and motion-sensitive digital surveillance cameras throughout the facility.
How wide are your Temple 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 that range from 5x5 to5x10—will have either swing doors or roll-up doors, which both have about a 3-foot opening. For larger units—such as 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and bigger—they will have roll-up doors that have about an 8-foot opening.
Do your Temple 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. Reach out to our store team above for more information.

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- to 3-feet high.
