The Lock Up Self Storage has opened its fifth facility in Chicago after a complete renovation of the property. The project included rebuilding the roof, remodeling windows and upgrading the building’s interior, including carpeting the hallways. The facility also has an indoor loading bay and an enclosed, drive-through tunnel with access to units as large as 500 square feet. More than 700 storage units were created during the renovation, company officials said.
Tenants can drive their moving trucks into the indoor loading bay to stay protected from inclement weather while moving into a unit. Similarly, customers who rent a drive-up unit can pull their moving trucks into the drive-through tunnel, which houses more than 20 climate-controlled units. The facility also features electronic, coded access and security cameras.
Located at 1900 N. Narragansett Ave., the Chicago-Galewood Lock Up Self Storage is situated within the Galewood/Elmwood Park neighborhoods near the border of Chicago and Oak Park, making it accessible to residents and businesses on Chicago’s West side.
Amenities include free WiFi for tenants and motion-sensor lighting. To celebrate the opening, the company is offering 20 percent off rental fees to customers who book online.
Based in Chicago, The Lock Up currently operates 13 self-storage facilities in Illinois and has several locations in eight states comprising more than 1.6 million square feet.
