Self Storage FAQs

All of our rental agreements are month-to-month. You rent with us only as long as you need the space. If you know you need long term storage, you can save with our 13 Month Free Special.

Yes we do! Many of our ezStorage facilities offer vehicle storage. One of our most popular storage solutions is our outdoor parking units that can accommodate your boat or RV. Simply drain all fuel and fluids before you store.

At ezStorage, we also have indoor storage unit options, which are ideal for:

  • Motorbikes
  • Scooters
  • Motorcycles


Yes, you can purchase a new, sealed lock at any one of our facilities. No one other than you has a key to that lock. If you would prefer to bring your own lock at time of rental, you are welcome to do so.

    Please note that you will need to know the zip code of your storage location and your unit number to make a payment.

Simply put – none. Of course, we would love you to let us know when you’ll be leaving but we realize this isn’t always possible. Remove your lock when you complete clearing out your space. Then stop by our office on your way out to let us know you’ve vacated your unit. This will allow us to make sure you do not incur any unnecessary rental charges.

ezStorage is dedicated to the growing “green” movement in construction.

Our Charles Village building in Baltimore, Maryland was our first LEED certified building. The Charles Village project rehabilitated an older existing structure. Today, Charles Village is a state-of-the-art self storage facility. At ezStorage, we take pride in limiting our impact on the environment. Our Elkridge storage facility is a Gold LEED certified building. Elkridge is a great reflection of our continued dedication to the “green” movement.

LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. It is a certification program of the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED has a rating system for new buildings constructed, and scores buildings based on their impact on the environment. It also scores how comfortable the workplace is for employees.

All future ezStorage locations will also be LEED certified.
