Move It Self Storage was founded in 2013 and has already grown to operate approximately 50 storage facilities Alabama, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas. The company offers the availability of indoor and outdoor storage units, moving supplies, and climate control, but compensates with high prices and no refund policy. Most of these previously mentioned features can be found in companies that still charge a lower monthly fee. For these reasons, we recommend taking a look at top competitors before considering Move It Self Storage.

- Moving supplies
- Climate control functions
Indoor and Outdoor Units
Move It Self Storage offers both indoor and outdoor storage units. Indoor units typically involve a passcode that must be used to enter a facility to reach your storage unit. Outdoor units are typically accessed by entering a gate by car. The fact that Move It Self Storage operates both kinds of facilities should serve as a positive for customers that want to have the option.
Move It Self Storage carries different sizes of boxes that can be used to store away your belongings. The company even carries special sleeves that can be used to store particularly fragile belongings such as china and fine dinnerware. Storage locks are also available for purchase. Bubble pack, dish pack sets, and packing peanuts are also available for storing away sensitive items. Packing tape is also available for purchase.
Move It Self Storage maintains a temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit in its storage units. This goes for all sizes, not just large sized storage units. Electricity is also provided at select locations. This is useful for customers who need to store belongings that may be sensitive to extreme temperatures, such as antiques or musical instruments. These customers are encouraged not to compensate on storage units that don't offer these amenities.
- High prices
- No refunds
- Limited gate hours
Anything over $100 per month is considered pricey when it comes to storage units, and Move It Self Storage charges approximately $109 per month for an average 10'x10' storage unit. Climate control is factored into this price, but many competitors will provide climate control at a lower price still.
Move It Self Storage contracts explain that customers aren't entitled to refunds if they cancel their rental before the end of the paying month. This isn't unusual in the storage unit industry, but we award extra points to companies that go the extra mile to do this.
Limited Gate Hours
Move It Self Storage gates are only available between 6:00 am and 9:00 pm daily. Companies that make their storage units available 24 hours will score the highest in this area because customers should feel they have access to their storage unit in the case of an emergency.
The Bottom Line
Move It Self Storage has grown incredibly fast in the last few years but is a company that offers average services for a high price. The availability of both indoor and outdoor units and moving supplies is nice, but other companies offer services such as climate control without raising the monthly price. The lack of refunds and limited gate hours might also deserve some revisiting and reconsideration. Move It Self Storage isn't a bad storage unit company, but it's difficult to justify the lack of services for the hard price. We recommend looking into top competitors before considering Move It Self Storage.
