This is one of a series of articles spotlighting our storage facilities and neighborhoods.
Glenview, IL is a family-friendly suburb located just north of the city of Chicago and west of Lake Michigan. The area was mostly farmland leading up to World War II, when developers started to come in to the area to build up the suburban appearance that is still present today.
A former military base makes up what is now known as "The Glen", and is fifteen percent of the land in all of Glenview. The Glen consists of new homes, offices, and a large shopping center called The Glen Town Center. With a nationally recognized school system, multiple parks, and a museum in the area, it is a great place for families looking to move.
Just a mile-and-a-half away from The Glen is our CubeSmart Self Storage Facility in Glenview. It's a convenient location for families looking to store their house while moving to the area, and our on-site managers are there to help you find the unit best suited to your storage needs. With options available such as a professional organizing service, simple moving labor, packing supplies available for purchase, and the ability to ship items to the store, CubeSmart is there to help make your moving process go as smoothly as possible. Our well-lit facility also has 24-hour video recording and the option for individual lighting in your storage unit.
Local Customers are Saying:
"This is my first experience with a storage facility and I couldn’t be happier knowing my few possessions are safely stored in a clean temperature controlled facility."
"Our experience has been very positive. We have rented a unit to store items while selling our home and waiting to get into our new home. The staff was really helpful in getting the correct size unit at the best price."
"Well run facility – Courteous, professional, efficient."
Take a Tour of the Facility:
When you're done packing everything into your unit, take a short five-minute walk up the street to Pizano's Pizza and Pasta. It's recommended by our managers as the place to go in Glenview for a good slice or to catch the game on TV. Other good local spots to check out are Dickey's BBQ and Lalo's Restaurant, both of which are also conveniently located down the road from our facility.
Take your whole family to Glenview's Summer Fest for live music, sales, and family-friendly activities hosted by the Chamber of Commerce at Jackman Park on Lehigh Avenue.
