What are the storage options?
We have two options for storage at our facility; Climate Controlled and General Unconditioned.

Climate Controlled Storage is our premium storage option that maintains a low humidity and constant temperature level that virtually eliminates the chance of mold & mildew (65 degrees and 65% relative humidity). This is ideal for car, boat, motorcycle and RV storage. Vehicle storage rooms are painted and well lit and all units are periodically checked to ensure satisfaction. This storage is billed monthly and there is a four (4) month minimum. Our facility can accommodate heights up to 11 feet. We strongly recommend the climate controlled storage to avoid any risks of mold and mildew.

General Unconditioned Storage is a budget-friendly option available for all boats, campers, and RV’s at a discounted rate. The temperature is at a constant 54 degrees, making winterization of your vehicle unnecessary. The humidity in this section is significantly higher than our climate controlled area. Our general storage is priced on a per season basis with a five (5) month minimum. There is a height restriction of 12 feet and the 12 foot high spaces are limited and sell out every year. There is a $50 fee for units over 10 feet 8 inches. We have plenty of space available in general storage for units under 10 feet 8 inches. Mold and mildew is possible in this type of storage.
What do I need to do to reserve a spot?
To reserve a space in Climate Controlled Storage we require the first month’s rent or for General Unconditioned Storage we require a $30.00 deposit.
Are desposits refundable?
No, deposits are not refundable.
What are the costs of storage?
Please see the pricing page here for specific information on car, boat, RV, camper, personal watercraft and motorcycle storage pricing.
How are units measured?
Units are measured from tongue to hitch. Boats are measured by the longest points, whether it be the boat or the trailer that it is on.
How should I prepare my vehicle for storage in an underground facility?
Please bring units in with under a half a tank of gas and remove any removable propane tanks. It is strongly recommended to bring vehicles into the facility on a dry day. Customers are encouraged to spray the inside of the vehicle with Lysol and purchase Humidry when they arrive at the mine to help with any moisture that may occur. If the vehicle is a car or motorhome, please bring an extra set of keys to be retained at the facility.
Do you have Saturday and late night hours?
Yes, we have extended vehicle storage hours in the spring and fall including late Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Do I need a reservation to bring my vehicle in or to remove it?
Yes, we ask for a 72 hour notice so we can best serve you, but if possible we will make accommodations with less notice.
What happens if I don’t have a reservation and just show up?
In order to best serve you and our other guests we have to schedule appointments each day. We arrange our staffing to accommodate each day’s appointments and when guest arrive unexpectedly we have to pull people from other departments to handle the overflow. Unfortunately we then have to charge extra and assess a $50 fee for this.
Do you provide any extra services?
In addition to our storage service, we also offer valet service (express service) in and out of the facility.
Do I have access to my unit once it is in storage?
Yes, there are no problems visiting your unit while it is stored in the mine but we do ask that you schedule an appointment in advance and keep this to a minimum. Unfortunately, we cannot allow people to work on their units while they are in the mine for insurance reasons.
Can you remove my unit for me?
Yes, we remove units for customers under our Express Program for a small fee. Please see our fee schedule for more information.
Can you assist with inflating my tires or jumping a dead battery?
Yes, our attendants assist customers with air tanks, compressors and batteries as needed.
Can you put fuel stabilizer in my unit?
Yes, adding fuel stabilizer is part of our Extra Services for a fee. Please see our fee schedule for more information.
Do you sell products to minimize humidity & mold problems?
Yes, we have an array of products that minimize humidity and mold and can be purchased onsite for a minimal cost.
