Indoor Storage Facility


We are now offering standard indoor self-storage units to help you with all your storage needs. So, whether you need to store electronic equipment, antiques, or seasonal decorations we have an indoor self-storage solution for you. Rent from Barnes Self Storage and you'll get a storage unit that is in a clean in-door environment, well-lighted and convenient to access, and secure enough to store valuables with peace of mind.

All of our storage units are located indoors to offer protection of your belongings from dust mites, mildew, mold, termites, wasps, bees, rodents, insects and other pests. You can have peace of mind knowing that your belongings are safely indoors where dirt and dust are less likely to damage them.

Another consideration would be the luxury of working within the storage unit if you need to access your items frequently. Being indoors in a climate controlled area allows you to remove and store items in comfort, unaffected by rain or extreme temperatures. If using for business purposes, working in a climate controlled facility will make it better for you and your employees.

Climate Controlled Units


We are the only company that offers indoor climate controlled storage units in the area. Our units have wide, easy to roll up door entrances with galvanized steel walls and mesh wire panels as the ceiling of the unit.

Our units are heated and cooled to protect your belongings from extreme heat and cold. With the extreme temperatures and constantly-changing weather in Tennessee, climate controlled storage is essential for you or your business to keep your important documents, priceless keepsakes, and sensitive valuables protected.

Severe hot or cold temperatures and high humidity can damage items stored in standard storage units. Important papers for your home or business, computer equipment and electronics, wood or leather furniture, photographs, books, clothing, artwork and other valuable possessions can be destroyed if not properly protected.

Storage Tips


Barnes Self Storage hopes that these packing and storing tips will be very helpful for you. The more you understand how to properly pack and load your storage unit, the better protected your furniture and belongings will be. Self-storage units don't have to be a space you visit once or twice a year to dig something out of a stack of boxes. They can be highly organized, easily accessible spaces that free up necessary space in your home or office. To get the most out of them, though, it is best to plan ahead before you start packing your items and loading up the truck.

Helpful tips for packing and storing:

  • Many current homeowner and business insurance policies already provide self-storage insurance, but you'll want to verify that items in your storage unit are properly insured.
  • Make a diagram that shows where you have stored your items and put this in an easy to access area at the front of your unit for future reference
  • Leave small walkways between the boxes and furniture in your storage unit so you can easily get to your items without needing to rearrange anything.
  • If you're storing a refrigerator or freezer leave the door ajar to prevent mold from growing inside.
  • Place fabric covers over furniture to protect upholstery from dust.
  • Maximize the use of your space by stacking boxes. Be certain to place larger and heavier boxes nearer the bottom and lighter, more delicate boxes towards the top in order to prevent damage to fragile items and keep boxes from falling.
  • Select medium, uniform-sized boxes that are easy to handle, sturdy and easy to stack.
  • Use wadded up newspaper, bubble wrap, rags, or towels to fill empty spaces in boxes to prevent boxes from collapsing onto your items.
  • Do not over pack boxes as they can become too heavy and cause potential harm to you and your items
  • Utilize all available space including drawers and appliances by placing smaller items inside them.
  • Disassemble all large items such as bed frames, shelving units, and other furniture. Place all necessary screws and parts in a sealable bag and tape it to the item for future reassembly.
  • Cover exposed wood and plastic surfaces with padding or bubble wrap to prevent scratching.
  • Label boxes on all sides for easy identification
  • Put frequently accessed items at the front of the unit
  • Under no circumstances should you store anything flammable or combustible in your unit. This includes gasoline, oil, cleaning fluids or paint thinner. If you're storing any machinery that runs on gas, remember to drain the tank before you store it.
  • Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored. You alone control access to your storage space;therefore, never store live animals, perishables, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment.
