    Storage unit location/price

    Would love some input from you guys here how much how pay for a storage unit in the Ames to Ankeny area and/or deposit. Probably going to move close to Ankeny this summer and want to get a regular single stall unit here in the next few weeks.
    Thanks!

    Re: Storage unit location/price

    I can't remember the name, but I kept some stuff in a storage unit on the west side of Ames. It was cheap, and they even let me keep it for an extra week without charging me. Near the west side of town on Lincoln Way if I remember right (it was like 6 years ago).

    I used West Ames Mini Storage during the summer.
    It is a bit far from the city, but inexpensive and clean.

    Re: Storage unit location/price

    Anyone have any recommendations a little closer to the interstate or the east side of HWY 30?

    I used to run the Iowa self Storage association, but it disbanded about 10 years ago due to lack of interest so I am not really familiar with what is around in that area.

    Depending on how remote the location and how old the facility is I would guess a 10x20 unit in the area there will go for about $75-$100 per month. Lots of different places do their deposits differently. You will find that the lower priced units will probably have a 1 months rent deposit while higher priced ones may have no deposit but with a admin fee.
