I made. Reservation over the computer. got a confirmation, and when I went there to finalize the paperwork and pay found out that the space I had reserved was not longer available because apparently the reservations were received at the same time and they did not have another space the same size. they then proceeded to give me a larger space for the same price as reserved!!!! That was unexpected but I LOVED IT. I will of course be forever thankful for that. I will sincerely recommend IVAN and property 07116.Full Review

I was terribly mislead. The information I was given over the phone was not honored once I arrived at the facility. Apparently the storage center uses an offsite service to book its customers and they misrepresent the storage facility. The hours posted online was not the hours posted at the facility. I was charged more than the unit was advertised for and I was very unhappy about it. I went there for a $59 advertised special and ended up paying about $117?. Since I was in dire straits and had packed up all my things, paid a driver and traveled the 25 miles to the facility, I had no choice but to go ahead with the transaction. However, the front desk agent was very nice...Full Review

My experience was very pleasant. I was helped by Jason Curry and he was exceptionally nice, professional and courteous. He made sure all my questions were answered and he was well informed about everything I asked about. I felt that if I had any other questions that I would come back to Jason and he would make sure it was resolved. He made my rental experience with this facility well worth my selection.

Moving to Chicago

With a population of almost 3 million, Chicago is the third largest city in the U.S. after New York and Los Angeles, and its metropolitan area places it in the World's Top 40.

With plenty of business opportunities, well-paid jobs, and dozens of top-rated colleges and universities, Chicago attracts newcomers all year round. If you are one of them, it is worth taking a look at what the city has to offer both economically and in terms of neighborhoods before making your move.

Chicago Opportunities for All

College students

The University of Chicago is ranked 5th in the United States and Top 10 worldwide, covering a range of arts and sciences, medicine, business, and public policy studies. Other notable universities in the area include Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), and the Illinois Institute of Technology, better known as Illinois Tech.

Job seekers

The top 3 employers in Chicago are the U.S. Government, Chicago Public Schools, and the City of Chicago, and the largest corporations with headquarters here include Boeing, Walgreens, United Continental, and Sears. The tech industry has the most open jobs, followed by health care, transportation, food services, and retail.

Businesses

The City of Chicago offers free support to start-up entrepreneurs and business owners via Neighborhood Business Development Centers (NBDC). Economic development initiatives under DPD u2014 the Department of Planning and Development u2014 include funding opportunities like the Small Business Improvement Fund (SBIF), Chicago PACE, and Tax Increment Financing (TIF).

Chicago Neighborhoods to Consider

Lincoln Park and Old Town

A great area for live music, entertainment, and recreational activities, these neighborhoods are ideal for young professionals and indie businesses. With great schools and plenty of green space around, it is also a top choice among young families that love the big city vibe.

The Loop

Chicago's official downtown area is dynamic and filled with cultural attractions, parks, shops, and restaurants. Less affordable than the old town, it is still a safe area, very well connected with public transit, extremely walkable, and with good schools.

Gold Coast

This wealthy historical neighborhood is the home of the original Playboy mansion and the famous Magnificent Mile. It is the place to go if you love luxury, designer boutiques, praised restaurants, and gorgeous beaches. And if you can afford it, of course.

Streeterville

Located north of downtown Chicago and home to the iconic Navy Pier, you can be in the middle of the city and still feel connected to nature here. It is popular among business professionals that like to balance nightlife with lakefront views, sandy beaches, and green parks.

Living in Chicago

Whether moving homes for a better job, looking to open a small business, or attending one of the prestigious universities in and around Chicago, you will find extra storage space extremely handy. Public transportation is very reliable and you can use it to get around the city daily, so it makes sense to opt for car storage if you own a car and only need it for occasional trips.

Given the cold winters and frequent heat waves during summer, climate-controlled storage units are a must, and boat storage pays off if you enjoy exploring Lake Michigan on your own. Check out all the Chicago storage units available and choose the one that best suits your needs and budget.

Best Priced Storage Units in Chicago, IL

How does self-storage in Chicago work?

A storage unit’s price is based on several factors, including the facility’s amenities (such as 24/7 access, free use of truck), the storage unit’s amenities (such as climate control, electrical outlet), facility location, unit location (a ground floor unit will be more expensive), and overall demand in your area.

When looking at pricing for storage units in Chicago, it’s important to think about rental rates in terms of price for value. Sometimes, the cheapest storage unit doesn’t always mean it’s the best unit for YOUR needs.
