This is one of a series of articles spotlighting our storage facilities and neighborhoods.
Home to the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, North Chicago is a suburb located about an hour north of the City of Chicago. The Great Lakes Naval Base is a place where current and future naval officers go to enhance their skills, attracting a large military population to the area. Also located nearby in North Chicago is Rosalind Frank University, an interprofessional graduate school with focuses in the sciences and medicine.
Between keeping a decluttered space for studying, and the moving lifestyle of military personnel, self storage is a way to keep everything under control. Our self storage facility in North Chicago is conveniently situated just 2-and-a-half miles from the naval base and a mile-and-a-half from the University; perfect for anyone looking for storage space. Offering military discounts for former and current soldiers, our well-lit North Chicago facility offers indoor and outdoor car parking as well as a variety of options in storage unit sizes. We also sell boxes and other packing supplies to make your move-in as smooth as possible.

Local Customers are Saying
"I chose this facility because it offered the perfect size storage for my needs, and because of the location. I was pleasantly surprised at the great customer service I received. I put in the my request on their website, and received a follow up call right away. When I arrived at the facility, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the process was fast and easy. As a woman, I was a little concerned about security if I came alone at night, and Mandy explained all the security features and put my mind at ease. Great experience!"

While in town, go to the Great Lakes Naval Museum. It's a local museum honoring current and former naval officers, and teaches about the history of the U.S. Navy. With free admittance, it's an interesting place to check out and it presents the opportunity to take a step back into the history of the United States.
