To locate the nearest self-storage facility, an individual can use an online business directory, such as Superpages of SelfStorage.com, or search on the websites of self-storage companies such as Public Storage or U-Haul. The self-storage directory at Superpages provides results on a map so customers can easily locate the closest locations.
Customers can also sort the results by distance on Superpages' site to see the closest locations first and use the drop-down menu to restrict the distance radius of the search results. The site organizes the results by categories, which group self storage with other related services, so customers can locate nearby moving resources and supplies as well.
Customers can rate and review self storage providers on the site and sort by ratings to locate the closest highly rated companies. Links to company websites, addresses and phone numbers help customers locate facilities, obtain more information about available services and make reservations. The site also provides links to coupons and special offers for select locations.
Directory listings provide additional details about local facilities, including whether they provide climate control, security systems or property insurance. Additional information includes the operating hours of the facilities, accepted payment types and social media pages.
To find the nearest self storage facility at a particular chain, such as U-Haul, customers can enter the city, state or ZIP code into the search field at the facility's official website and select any additional requirements, such as climate control, to narrow results.
