  • Can you sleep in a storage unit?

If you have spent all day rummaging through your things and need a quick lie down, it isn’t illegal. But a storage unit is for your belongings, not human habitation, so spending the night or living out of a storage space is not allowed, from a safety as well as insurance standpoint. There is no way to lock the unit from the inside, there is no safe ventilation, nor is there access to running water or ablution facilities.

Our storage units are designed for things like your furniture, clothes, DVDs, CDs, paperwork, and collectibles.
