"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

  • Size: Ensure that the storage space is large enough to accommodate your RV, motorhome, trailer or camper.
  • Security: Look into the security measures in place such as access codes, locks, or cameras.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor outdoor RV storage spaces in Bessemer is a great place to start.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces.

We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).

If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.
