photo-cover-big-red-self-storage-februaryBig Red Self Storage ( has been renting storage space since 1996. Built on a solid foundation of great managers, they have continued to expand their business over the past 20 years. The first property was built at 6th & Van Dorn and has grown into six locations and over 3,000 storage spaces. All of the stores are locally owned and operated and have donated many storage spaces to the local community and non-profit organizations.

The management team at Big Red Self Storage has a combined 75+ years of storage experience.  The team is currently involved in the Nebraska Self Storage Owners Association (NSSOA) and the national Self Storage Association. They have attended conferences in Washington DC, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Florida. The regional manager, Danielle Smith, is presently serving on the Board of Directors for the NSSOA.

What makes Big Red Self Storage unique is the one-stop shop philosophy. From free moving truck rentals to a wide variety of boxes and moving supplies, Big Red has everything to make your storage experience go smoothly. The free moving truck is a very popular deal, with many new customers taking advantage of this offer. Customers also like the wide range of packing and moving supplies. Each store has mattress covers, tape, boxes, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, shrink wrap, and many other moving supplies.

Businesses enjoy renting space from Big Red because of the extra amenities that are offered. The on-site managers will accept packages and even deliver them straight to your storage space. Each store has extra security features, such as keypad entry onto the property, security cameras, lighting, and perimeter fencing. Commercial tenants can come and go based on their schedule.

Utilizing technology has also been at the top of Big Red’s list of priorities. You can rent a space online, pay your bill, and fill out forms via email. The newly updated website ( lists all of the prices, locations, and contact information. One of the most popular features is the Space Estimator and Size Unit Guide, which helps customers decide what size of storage space they need.

Three stores even have kiosks that allow you to rent spaces, pay your bill, and buy a lock 24/7. They are located on the outside of the offices and look like ATMs. These have helped extend office hours beyond the normal operating hours.
