Ankeny Self Storage is Convenient

Rent a Storage Unit without Leaving Home

StorageMart (formerly Budget Storage) makes it easy to find a storage unit in the manner most convenient for you. You can always stop by one of our stores and speak with a member of our friendly, knowledgeable staff or inquire about rates and availability by phone, but now you can also visit our website to check rates and availability for storage in your area and book your storage unit without ever having to leave your home. This “Rent It Now” capability is just part of the way StorageMart is your friendly, and convenient, storage option.

Moving to Ankeny

Ankeny has long been a desired place to live. In 2008, Family Circle recognized Ankeny as one of the top ten towns for families in America. MONEY Magazine ranked it 62nd on its “100 Best Places to Live” list in 2009. In 2010, Ankeny was designated a Playful City USA by the KaBoom! Foundation for the fourth consecutive year.

Moving can be a stressful time for a family. Make a move easier on kids by keeping them involved. Create a wish list of things everyone would like in a new home, take them along while house hunting, keep a memory book of your soon-to-be old home and throw a going away party for yourselves. Keeping your children actively involved in a move will help make the experience exciting, more like an adventure, than something to be feared.

Renting self storage in Ankeny can make a move easier for mom and dad too. By having a place you can rely on to safeguard your possession, you can move those things you won’t need immediately out of your way. That enables you and your family to unpack and settle into your home at a pace which is convenient for your schedule, your lifestyle and your peace of mind.

Weather in Ankeny

The climate in Ankeny is like that of the rest of the Des Moines Metro Area. The area sees cold, snowy winters, followed by rainy springs and hot, humid summers. Most people enjoy the idea of seeing all four seasons outside their window, but weather extremes can be the worst enemy of items kept in storage.

Think about what you’re storing before selecting your storage unit. Moist air can mildew textiles and paper products or corrode metal. Extremely dry air can crack or warp wooden furniture.

If you are storing any of those delicate/valuable type items, consider a climate-controlled storage unit. By maintaining a constant, moderate temperature, climate-controlled storage units will help safeguard more delicate items from the elements.

Retail Businesses Can Save with Ankeny Self Storage

Ankeny is a largely residential community, but does feature a thriving retail industry. Retail business owners can maximize their merchandising power putting off-season or surplus inventory into storage. This frees up space on the sales floor for more popular merchandise and creates an overall better shopping experience for customers.

Savvy business owners can take that a step further and use their self storage unit to actually make money by purchasing seasonal merchandise in the off-season (or in bulk), which often allows for a lower price point and a larger profit margin.

StorageMart recognizes the hectic life of small business owners. Our corporate/commercial clients can often work with our store managers to gain extended hours of accessibility to our facility. This allows for business owners to operate on a schedule which is most convenient for them.

Student Populations Can Affect the Price & Availability of Self Storage

Ankeny is home to the flagship campus of Des Moines Area Community College. All told, DMACC serves more than 20,000 students. College students often lead a more transient lifestyle and will seek out self storage during summer and winter breaks when they go back home, study abroad or work an internship. Students moving on from DMACC to a four-year college may also need storage for their possessions until they are more settled in their new college town.

As a result, Ankeny self storage availability can become scare, which can increase rates. If you know you’ll be needing a storage unit at some point in the future and live in a college town, reserve your unit ahead of time. This will ensure your storage unit will be available to you when you need it and at a rate you can count on.

Average Cost of Storage in Ankeny

Self storage space in Ankeny rents out, on average, at $.85 per square foot per month. The most commonly rented storage space is a non-climate controlled 10’x10’ unit, at an average cost of $100.25 per month.

The rate for a storage unit can vary due to a number of factors, including scarcity, proximity to loading docks or elevators or being on a ground floor as opposed to an upper floor. Storage facilities with more sophisticated security programs will often rent out space at slightly higher rates. Climate-controlled storage units typically cost more than regular storage units.
