We are located within the LifeStorage facilty on North Lamar. We are the 2 story building behind the gate when you enter the parking lot. The gate access code is: *8329# Please park alongside the building or in the front lot. Do not park along the fence since those spots are rented out large trucks will come back to claim them (and squash your car – just kidding). There are 3 yellow doors on our building. Come in through the left most one. Note: We have a fantastic facility but since we rent space the owners do not let us advertise or put up signage. Hence, your treasure hunt.
Wear mask inside the building, wash hands downstairs in restroom before coming upstairs, temp check in salle.
