What do you look for when searching for a storage facility? This is a question that we asked ourselves when evaluating the storage facilities in the Salem and Keizer, Oregon area. Storage can be a personal experience. Certainly what you are storing is very personal, and you want to find the right facility to not only protect your property, but also to fit your personal needs. Do you need climate control for expensive instruments? Dual layer security? Onsite management? What type of access hours do you require? All of these questions and more are things you should ask yourself before deciding on a place to store your treasured keepsakes and valuables.
Here in Salem, storage is at a premium. It’s hard to find a good storage place to begin with, and even the older rundown storage facilities are priced higher than most places. That is why we set out to see if we could find a local place that provides a good value and isn’t falling apart.

We started with a quick google search and began visiting facilities one by one. Without naming names there were a few that we had no idea why anyone would store at. One in particular, when they opened a unit to show us, cockroaches skittered in every direction. That was definitely a hard pass! Fortunately after that our next stop was a brand new facility. It was nice and clean, if not exactly well built, but the price was absurd.
Halfway through the second day we stopped by a facility in northeast Salem called Storage Salem Oregon. We were shocked at the difference in this facility. Storage Oregon caters to multiple types of storage. They have a wide variety of storage options. A good portion of their lot is dedicated to RV, boat, semi and vehicle storage, but one of their newer projects is adding mini storage units to their facility.
When we first met the staff there they were very friendly and courteous. They offered to give us a tour of the site – which included a wide variety of amenities and services, some of which we had never seen before at a storage facility. You can tell many of those amenities are geared towards vehicle storage. For example they have a wash-pad with power, an air compressor, running water, as well as tools and a wash-bucket for their customers to use, all free of charge. There is a sewer dump onsite as well, all of which can be used by any storage customers if they want, not just the vehicle storage.
– Sometimes the best really does cost less!!!!!
Other amenities include an onsite manager for emergencies, barbed wire fences in addition to locked units for dual layer security. 24/7 entry for customers through coded gate access are also available at no extra charge. We’ll be honest, we put in our 30 day notice at our current storage place that afternoon and took a 10×8 unit with Storage Oregon. The best part of all of this was not only are the units in fantastic condition (they were all built recently), but the price could not be beat. We finished our survey and could not find any units that came even close to the price, and nothing had the high level of customer service and free extras that Storage Oregon offers.
So when you are looking for storage in Salem, Oregon stop by and talk to the team at Storage Oregon. Whether you need mini storage, RV parking, or just a place to store your car while you sell it, These guys are the best, and you can’t beat their prices!!!
