What is self-storage?


Self-storage is an affordable, efficient way for you to store your life's possessions. Self-storage makes it easy to store items of all shapes and sizes in one convenient storage location.


How do I use it?


Self-storage at Kangaroo Self-Storage can be used for many purposes:


  • As an extension of your home; a place to store seldom used items

  • To store seasonal items such as decorations or sports equipment

  • As a business storage solution to de-clutter your office

  • To free up garage space so you can actually park your car in it again

  • And many more!


How do I know what size I need?


Create a list of the items that you are going to be storing. Choosing the right size unit will ensure that you only pay for the storage you need. If you are still not sure, just contact our office and we will be glad to help!


How long do I need storage?

Kangaroo Self-Storage recognizes the need to move your items out when the time is right. Our month to month rentals give you the flexibility to choose just how long you require your unit. Need more helpful tips? Please call our office and speak with a manager at the facility 410-604-0080. Kangaroo Self-Storage offers storage, service and solutions guaranteed to meet your expectations.


What is climate-controlled and do I need it?


Climate controlled storage units are temperature controlled so your treasured belongings are not exposed to extreme temperatures. Our climate controlled facilities are housed in an indoor finished building where dirt and dust are less likely to penetrate. This type of environment is ideal for storing furniture, photographs, discs/records, electronics, and other items.


Do I need to have a lock?


You provide the lock ensuring that you, and only you, have access. Don’t have a lock? No problem, we offer locks, packing and moving supplies to make your move stress-free. Even better, we offer all of these great moving supplies at very affordable prices.


Do I need insurance for my stored goods?

Yes, you are responsible for those items you store at Kangaroo Self-Storage and insurance for those items is required. We do not offer insurance options at the facility so you are responsible for having coverage on your personal belongings either through your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. We will not be held responsible for loss or damage of your items.


How do I get my items to the unit?

We are a small business and do not offer moving trucks but can recommend local moving companies within the area to help during your move to make it less stressful. However, we do offer hand trucks, appliance trucks and flat carts at our facility.  Please note that the hand trucks are rentable items but the carts are no charge.
