Everything You Need to Know About Self Storage in Fort Worth
If you're in southwest Fort Worth or west Arlington, Life Storage proudly serves your area with surveillance-monitored, climate-controlled and standard self storage units. You'll find us in North Richland Hills, Watauga, Hurst, Euless, Bedford, Haslet, Great Prairie, Duncanville, Coppell and Lewisville, TX.
Our history runs deep in Fort Worth. On average, our facilities have been around for 15 years. We've got a great view of AT&T Stadium from facility #747 and facility #90 in Arlington (Go Cowboys!), and facility #842 is just up the road from the U.S. Mint up in Haslet, where a majority of U.S. currency is printed. You'll also find us in the older, established areas by Lake Arlington with plenty of parking space for your boat or RV.
UTA students - check out facility #746 or facility #573 . They're only a seven and ten minute drive from campus, respectively. TCU students - facility #749 is just a 10 minute drive up Southwest Blvd., and facility #318 is 12 minutes away on Granbury Rd.
Take Advantage of Our Truck Rentals On Move-In Day
Our fleet in Fort Worth consists of two vans and about 20 trucks, all equipped with air conditioning. If one facility doesn't have a truck available, we'll just ask if one of our sister locations in the area if they can assist.
Tip for move-in day: While we don't currently offer 24-hour access at any of our Fort Worth facilities, speak to your store manager about your needs for move-in day. We've been around for a moving day or two, and we know how long they can take. We're happy to make adjustments to our access hours to accommodate your moving day schedule.
Will You Need Climate Controlled Storage?
Fort Worth heat can be unforgiving, as can our frosty winter mornings. If you're storing anything that could accumulate and be damaged by mold or mildew, you'll want to consider a climate controlled storage unit.
You'll find climate control options at 11 of our 24 Fort Worth facilities. That's over 1,500 units! Facility #203 in North Richland Hills also has humidity control for an added layer of protection - especially useful for antiques and wood furniture which can warp from fluctuations in humidity.
Good news for you: the cost of climate controlled storage in Fort Worth is much less than the majority of cities in the U.S. In 2017 , storage customers paid an average of $111 per month in Fort Worth for a climate controlled 10x10 unit - one of the most common storage unit sizes.
Besides the heat and the occasional tornado, climate-related issues are minimal for our Fort Worth facilities. Each one falls outside of floodplains.
Boat and Vehicle Parking
Parking is a premium in Fort Worth. You'll find designated spaces for your RV, boat or extra vehicle at plenty of our facilities, including:
- #314 near Dalworthington Gardens (our largest lot near Lake Arlington)
- #203 in North Richland Hills
- #751 near Mira Vista (about 30 spaces)
- #90 near Great Prairie (about 10 spaces)
Do You Allow Bands to Practice in Your Fort Worth Facilities?
As of August 2018, none of our Fort Worth Life Storage facilities can allow bands to practice in their storage units - but we do see some customers using their space as weight rooms. You're more than welcome to do so; however, we hope you stay conscious of the temperature in your unit and take care of yourself accordingly.
