Open4Storage is the #1 community on the net covering social issues on self (mini) storage.

The Open4... family of web sites supports Operation Savannah - a foundation providing information on PTSD and support services for veterans and their families. Please consider helping them if we have helped you.

Our purpose is to change self storage users attitude for the better by providing them with quality educational information. And to equip them to store their personal property in ways that are cost justifiable and efficient.

Our authors are all recognized experts in their field. All content is fact checked for accuracy and ethics by our editorial team. We only publish reader contributions that describe a personal experience of trying a new facility or a self storage tip. The Internet offers plenty of places for consumers to opine on types of self (mini) storage.

The Open4Storage directories are independently researched. They exist for the sole purpose of helping our readers identify new products and tips on how to have a superior storage experience. We do not charge storage facilities to be included in our directories, neither do we earn referral fees or sell any of their products.

Do be on your guard against storage scams and "hyped" product claims. The loss to those deceived and the abuse of the monies wrongly obtained is a scourge to us all. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

It takes considerable effort to publish content --> of this quality for our readers. It is a full time job to properly secure our pages from hackers. We battle against sites that manipulate Google search results and push false storage reviews. Internet advertising makes taming the wild west look like a walk in the park.
