Public Storage gives you tons of storage options

Public Storage has secure storage units
Public Storage offers quite a few security measures to keep your items safe from both theft and damage.
Whichever option you choose, you hold the only key, so would-be thieves have to go to extreme measures to loot your unit.
Public Storage also protects its units behind an electronic gate that requires a personalized code to open. Each customer receives their own gate code, so you won’t have to worry about someone walking in from off the street and entering a “master code” they found online.
Public Storage’s indoor climate-controlled units protect your items from the wild temperature and humidity shifts that occur in outdoor storage units. This not only keeps your boxes from getting moist and developing mold, but also keeps pests at bay.
Although access for indoor storage isn’t always as convenient as traditional outdoor storage, we think it’s a good option if you’re considering storing things like furniture or clothing that do better in a consistent climate.
