Self Storage Makes Moving to Johnston Easy

Shop for Self Storage in Johnston is Easy

StorageMart (formerly Budget Storage) makes it easy to shop for Johnston self storage. You’re always more than welcome to stop by one of our stores and speak with a member of our friendly, knowledgeable staff or give us a call to ask about rates and availability, but now you can also visit our website to shop for storage in your area and book a storage unit without ever having to get up from your couch. The “Rent It Now” capability of our website is just one way StorageMart is your friendly, and convenient, storage option.

Moving to Johnston

Moving is never easy, but renting a storage unit in Johnston can make a move easier. After all the work involved with packing up your old home and moving, unpacking can seem like a daunting task. Take some of the pressure off by placing those items you won’t be needing right away (seasonal clothing, sports equipment, spare furnishings/decorations, etc.) into a storage unit. That way you can focus on unpacking those items you will be using more immediately and regularly and can settle into your new home at a pace which is convenient for you. Our monthly leasing option means you’ll have as long as you need to unpack, but will never pay for storage for any longer than you’re actually using it.

Johnston is home to the headquarters of The Gardners of America/Men’s Garden Clubs of America. If you’ve always thought of yourself as having a green thumb, but never had the room for all the supplies and equipment needed to maintain the perfect lawn and garden, consider renting a storage unit. Keep your gear around during the spring/summer months, but when the weather turns, know it will be safeguarded in your Johnston storage unit until spring blooms again.

Float Your Boat with Storage

Johnston, Iowa is bordered by the Des Moines River. Its area also includes the Saylorville Reservoir and is bisected by Beaver Creek.

Most of us enjoy having fun out on the water, but not everyone has space at home for the equipment to actually make that possible. Johnston boat storage is a perfect way to keep your watercraft close by, without allowing it to take over your driveway, garage or a big part of your yard. Keep all your safety gear, fishing equipment, water skis and assorted other outdoor gear in your storage unit and everything will be in one spot, ready to go when it’s time to hit the water.

Weather in Johnston

Johnston’s climate is similar to that of the rest of the Des Moines Metropolitan Area. It’s a humid, continental climate, featuring hot, humid summers and cold, sometimes severely cold, snowy winters.

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.

Business Owners Can Save with Storage

Johnston is the location for the headquarters of DuPont Pioneer, Iowa Public Television and John Deere Financial.

Business owners should consider how renting self storage in Johnston can positively affect the bottom line. Offices can be expanded without leasing even one more inch of office space if surplus furnishings/equipment or archived records are moved out of the workspace and into a climate-controlled storage unit for safekeeping.

Retail business owners can improve profit margins by purchasing inventory at a lower price point, either in great bulk or in the offseason, and keeping that surplus in their storage unit until it’s needed on the sales floor. This will also enhance merchandising capability and create for a better overall shopping experience for customers.

Average Cost of Storage in Johnston

Self storage space in Johnston rents out, on average, at $.82 per square foot per month. The most commonly rented storage space is a non-climate controlled 10’x10’ unit, at an average cost of $100.33 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.

What are Customers Saying about StorageMart?

“The staff was incredibly friendly. They let me get started on moving my things in before they made me start to sign the paperwork, which was very considerate. My storage locker had to be changed because of a mix up, but they moved me to a larger unit at the same price, and the unit they moved me to was closer to the entrance and on the first floor. The guy at the desk recommended a good, well priced lock, and brought me over a few hand carts as soon as they freed up. They made the move really easy.” – Shirley (Brooklyn, NY)

“The manager was super nice and helpful. I left my furniture dolly at my apartment, and he let me use one of his. Security seems pretty good, and the new keypad entry system is great.” – Corey G. (Athens, GA)

“It was great. The manager was extremely nice and helpful. The storage unit was very clean and ready for use and the security is great. I also love how I can get in with my security code whenever I need to.” – Hillary (Athens, GA)
