We offer a variety of storage units ranging from 5′ x 10′ to 12′ x 30′ Enclosed Storage, 12′ x 40 or 12′ x 50′ for covered RV storage and now 14′ x 50′ enclosed RV/Boat Storage. The management team at Storage City Self Storage works hard to ensure that your stored items are kept as safe as possible, and our units are protected by security fences with code-required access. We now have 14 facilities across the Rapid City and Box Elder area to better suit your needs for storage.

Check our website and Facebook page regularly for storage tips and storage organization ideas.


Self-Storage Dos and Don'ts

  • Break down large items such as bed frames, tables, and large furniture.
  • Tape all parts (screws and smaller items) to the larger pieces of furniture.
  • Wrap furniture legs with protective bubble wrap, furniture covers, or pads to prevent scratching.
  • Label boxes on all sides for easy identification.
  • Make sure fragile boxes are placed on top of heavier, less delicate boxes.
  • Place frequently-accessed items towards the front of your unit. Fewer frequently-accessed items should be placed toward the rear of your unit.
  • Use furniture covers or moving pads to keep items off the floor of the unit.
  • Leave a walkway down the center of your unit to make accessing items easier when storing business files.
  • Drain any fluids prior to storing snow blowers, lawnmowers, and other equipment.

  • Use your storage unit for any unlawful activities, as most storage facilities work hand in hand with local law enforcement.
  • Forget to use valuable space inside drawers and larger appliances (i.e., stoves and refrigerators) to store small items.
  • Store anything hazardous or flammable (i.e., paint or other chemicals) or perishable (i.e. perishable food items).
  • Overpack boxes, as they can get heavy and dangerous.
  • Forget to seal boxes with packing tape so that dust doesn't enter.
  • Keep your storage unit unlocked - you can purchase a lock with us! Call our office at 605-394-9442 to learn more about our different lock options.
