Before we get started, we’d like to break into song real quick because, frankly, nothing describes storage in Uptown better than our very own rendition of Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl:
And when she knows
What she wants from her ty-eye-ime
And when she wakes up
And makes up her my-eye-ind…
She’ll see that pickup storage isn’t so tough
She’s in love with her Uptown storage
But she knows she can’t afford to not use Doorage
And maybe one day when her contract ends
She’ll dump her storage unit and we can be friends
And then she’ll win!
Please hold your applause. We promise we’re better at running our pickup storage service than we are at writing songs. But our point is that if you’re in a rut with your traditional self-storage unit in Uptown, it might be time to make the switch to a better storage option.
Unlike traditional self-storage options, with our Uptown pickup storage service, you never have to worry about getting to or from your storage unit with a car packed full of boxes — which is a major bonus, considering a good portion of Chicagoans don’t own cars. When you use Doorage, we’ll drop off empty storage boxes at your front door. You can take up to two weeks to pack these up and schedule a time for our team to come pick them up. Once we collect your storage boxes, as well as any larger non-boxed items like furniture and outdoor gear, we’ll transport it to our Chicago storage facility where we’ll keep it safe until you need it back. When that time comes, just log into your account, let us know which boxes or items you want back, and we’ll schedule a convenient time to drop them off.
At Doorage, our goal is to make storage as simple as possible. From cataloging what you have stored in each box using our user interface, DoorLog, to providing quick drop-off turnarounds, we make storage in Uptown, Chicago easy and convenient. And unlike regular storage units, when you store with Doorage, you only pay for the storage space you use, and nothing more. That means you won’t be locked into a contract where you pay for a mostly-empty storage unit, and you can add or remove storage space at any time. So whether you need us to store some stuff for a couple weeks while you get settled into a new place or you are looking for long-term business storage, we can handle it.
