Hilltop Storage
Avoid this place at all cost, they will not return your deposit, at best you will get lip service. After being a loyal costumer for over a year, they were given a 6 week notice and we even left early giving them extra time to find a replacement. Never late on a payment and what you get in return is your deposit not returned and empty promises. Very poor customer service.

16th Avenue Self Storage
This place has since changed names and is Affordable Self Storage. Worst place in Cedar Rapids to store your belongings. They are not safe and are infested with insects. Go anywhere but here.

Hilltop Storage
I called Hilltop Storage the morning of my move after the place I had lined up (Affordable Self Storage-just down the street from Hilltop) screwed me over. The owner of Hilltop Storage came and met me in 30 minutes and we had all the paperwork finished super quickly. He was really nice and made me feel a lot better after my stressful morning of trying to get in contact with the other guy. If you're looking for something in this area, I'd go with Hilltop Storage.
Tips & Advices
Many storage unit companies provide moving equipment that you can use to help maneuver your belongings. This equipment might be available for rental, and some storage companies will loan certain items to you at no charge. The range of options can include items such as push carts and dollies.
Storage units allow vehicle storage, and you'll typically need to rent an outdoor unit to facilitate this process. An outdoor storage unit that accommodates vehicles may have its own walls and door, or it may be a covered unit that's partitioned with wire mesh. Another option is to rent covered storage for your vehicle. With covered storage, your vehicle is stored in a space that is shared with other vehicles. These spaces are similar to parking spaces in a secure lot.
There are certain differences that separate indoor and outdoor storage units. Indoor storage units are often housed in secure facilities, and they offer perks such as climate control. These units are the best choice for sensitive and valuable items, since they offer protection from pests, weather, and intruders. Outdoor storage units are usually much larger than indoor units, and they often offer drive-up access to each unit. Outdoor storage units are excellent for storing larger items such as furniture, boats, and cars.
Storage unit rental fees do not include property insurance for stored items. Storage facilities are typically protected by insurance, but this coverage only applies to the building itself, and not the contents of the storage units. Your homeowners insurance might provide coverage for your stored items. Storage insurance is also available, and premiums typically start at roughly $7 per month for $1,000 worth of coverage.
The minimum rental period for most storage units is one month. Some storage facilities offer promotions and discounts that require a longer minimum rental period for discounts to be redeemed. For example, a storage facility might offer the first month of rental free with a two-month minimum.
