Self Storage Containers – Get the facts!

Did you know that an average of 675 shipping

containers are lost at sea each year?

Shipping Containers for Self Storage

That’s a shame because lightly used sea containers make PERFECT self storage units!

Our environmentally friendly, recycled Self Storage Containers™ are available in two sizes (8′ x 20′ and 8′ x 40′) and available combined with outdoor space for parking vehicles, trucks, trailers, boats, RV’s or anything else on wheels! Each container was a one-time use unit and has been completely refurbished with paint, wooden floors and nice tight seals to keep the contents safe and dry.

Heavy duty locks available for rental on-site. Ask us about custom container and parking spaces for the largest of business storage needs.

Woodbridge Trailer Storage

trailerSo not really sure who started this whole fad, but seems like on every long road trip we find another trailer that looks just like the car, truck, or van pulling it. The ones that are extensions of the car are particularly funny and really throw you off in the dark, especially late at night when you’re 12hrs in and not quite yet to your destination. Thankfully we caught one in the daylight to share.

Here at Gateway Storage, we welcome all trailers. Whether your trailer is hauling your boat, car, motorcyle, or a Revolutionary War cannon replica (yep have seen that too), our secure facility is the best choice to store your trailer in between trips. Needing to hit the road in the early morning to make beach week? No problem. We offer 24-hour gate access, with well lit storage areas and spaces featuring reflective parking markers and permanent signage.

Another perk at Gateway Storage is ease of maneuverability. We have extra-wide aisle ways to make it easy to navigate in and out with your trailer in tow.

Gateway Storage Center offers affordable rates and flexible terms for Woodbridge Trailer Storage, including short-term, long-term, and month-to-month options. Give us a call today and we’ll be sure to keep your mini-Mustang trailer safe and sound until you need it next. We take reservations by phone or via email. No deposit required!

Alexandria Virginia Storage for the Summer

VeritasSummer is officially here!!! Flowers are in bloom and school is finally out! Spring was a little colder than expected. Now it’s time for warm, sunny days and enjoying the great outdoors. This year your family has decided to try some camping adventures. With the Shenandoah Valley so close by, why not? You take advantage of the new Summer Sales and stock up on a tent, couple camping backpacks, sleeping bags and the whole shebang. Maybe even grab a few fishing poles. The stuff barely fit in your car and you have no idea where to put it in your house.

Well, Gateway Storage Center has a suggestion. Why not store your Winter stuff during the Summer, then switch them when the cold weather comes? Kind of like shifting your Winter clothes to the back of the closet for the Summer, and vice versa for the Winter. You can even clean out some of the garage to make some actual walking room between the piles of boxes and those “less used” items.

And thankfully for your wallet, Gateway Storage offers affordable, competitive rates for Alexandria Virginia storage needs. Our self-storage containers feature highly secure locking systems to ensure your belongings are safe at all times. Our gated facility provides 24-hour access for our customers through remote controls you can keep on your car visor, so you can retrieve that inflatable Santa yard ornament anytime.
