Ease of access has become a driving force in today’s culture. Mobile apps are tailored towards providing information, entertainment, and more at your fingertips. The storage industry is not to be outdone and drive up storage units are a key indicator they have listened to the needs of the public and responded in kind.
Self-storage units come in all shapes and sizes. You may have helped a friend move who chose to rent an upstairs space and you spent most of your time moving stuff onto an elevator or down a long hallway.
With over 2.3 billion square feet of rentable storage space available in the U.S., you want to make sure you make the right choice. We’ll give you some great reasons why drive-up self-storage makes sense for your storage needs.
Large Trucks Welcome Here
There are many different sizes of units available. You can rent something small enough to store a few boxes, or you can store the majority of the furnishings for a small apartment. We can talk about the smaller options in a minute.
The point here is, with drive up storage, the units are tailored to unload that massive box truck right at the unit. If you have a bulky item, there is no need to move it down a hallway. Unload the truck, move the item a few feet into storage and close the door.
Drive Up Storage Units for Business
Self-storage doesn’t mean you are only allowed to store your personal items. Self-storage simply means you haul it to us and lock it away. The stuff you choose to keep with us can be for business as well as personal.
Popular uses for the storage of business items include:
- Promotional items
- Office furniture
Storing a company’s historical records can be a practical use for this type of storage. They are easily accessed later if needed, and maintaining their security is often easier than if the records were kept on the business premises.
Do you love to ski at one of the nearby resorts, but don’t want to store your skis through the summer? Or maybe you enjoy the summer sports and don’t want to store your golf clubs through the winter?
Drive up self-storage is a fast, convenient way to save space in your garage. Let us store those bulky snowboards or mountain bikes and be one of the first on your block to have room for both cars in your garage!

Frederick Self Storage is located adjacent to the Frederick County Fairgrounds. As such, we are conveniently located close to several large residential areas. We are also very close to both Hood College and Frederick Community College.
College students from both schools often rely on us for storing personal items during their winter or summer breaks. It allows them the freedom to go home during those breaks without having to transport all their belongings back and forth.
The following fictional scenario is meant to depict one of the many reasons we offer the services we do:
Terry got the call that all of us have, at one point, dreaded taking. Her father passed away unexpectedly and she was needed to help with the estate.
She rushed to Frederick to help make the necessary arrangements. Terry was immediately struck with the feeling that she wasn’t ready to part with all of the things holding so many fond memories. Maybe she would be at some point… but not yet.
So, rather than hold an estate sale right away, she sought us out and rented a storage unit to house the most treasured of her father’s possessions. Having something easy to access would be a huge benefit later.
Maybe your emergency scenario isn’t exactly the same. A pipe could have burst in your home, or you need to downsize for a while due to health concerns. In all of those scenarios, the last thing you need to stress over is what to do with your things.
We can help take some of that stress by offering a safe, convenient solution for storing your valuable possessions.
An Easy Decision
The many features outlined above have hopefully made your decision an easy one. Planning for either a long term or short term storage solution is a lot easier when you have all the facts. That’s exactly what we’ve tried to provide.
Ease of access is key. Both to the storage unit itself, and then to your valuables once they are housed inside. Drive up self-storage has made it easier for you to move in and move out with as little effort as possible.
With storage solutions that range from storing the smallest box to parking for your boat or RV, we hope you find the drive up storage units at Frederick Self Storage the right fit for your needs. Contact us today for more information, or stop by our office to finalize your reservation.
