If you’re renovating, moving or living in a home with less space than you’d like, storage units provide room to store extra furniture, out-of-season decorations or keepsakes that you don’t need around but don’t want to throw away.
Although storage facilities have many different features, most facilities have either outdoor units with exterior access or indoor units that are inside a larger building.
Outdoor units usually have drive-up access, which makes it easier to unload heavy or large items. These facilities are usually surrounded by a perimeter fence and have an electronic access gate for security. These units tend to be less expensive than indoor facilities.
Indoor units are inside a building, so you may have to carry large items farther to get to your unit. Some indoor facilities have elevators to make access to the upper floors more convenient. These units often have climate control.
Once you've chosen between these two types of facilities, look for additional features such as:
Climate control maintains the temperature and humidity of your unit, protecting items such as antique furniture, photographs and electronics. Climate control can be crucial in Las Vegas’ triple-digit heat.
24-hour access lets you get to your unit in an emergency or if you’re choosing to load or unload items at night or early morning to avoid the heat.
Security features such as surveillance cameras or 24/7 on-site security personnel protect your belongings and keep the facility safe.
Vehicle storage gives you a place to store RVs, boats or vehicles you don’t regularly drive.
Self-storage costs in Las Vegas
Features and amenities affect the price of storage units, but size is the most significant factor in a unit’s cost. To save money, decide exactly how much space you require and what kind of unit you need. Climate-controlled units cost 25 to 50 percent more but aren’t necessary if your belongings can’t be damaged by heat.
The location of the facility also influences the price — facilities that are conveniently located by large population centers are more expensive than more remote facilities in the suburbs. Units that are more accessible, such as ground floor units in indoor facilities, may also cost more.

Most storage contracts are month-to-month, although some facilities provide a discount if you sign a long-term contract. Companies may also offer discounts to students, seniors, military service members or people who belong to groups such as AAA or AARP.
Your renters or homeowners insurance policy may include stored items. Check your policy or talk to your insurance provider to see if your unit is covered. Many facilities also sell insurance policies that protect the items in your unit.
