History of Rockford Self Storage 


Rockford Self Storage roots go back to 1992 when Mike and Roger purchased a small self storage facility at 8905 Belding rd. With only one small building erect and room to grow, Mike and Roger quickly got to work installing an electronic gate, security cameras, built two new self storage buildings, and brought in crushed concrete to offer RV, Boat and Camper storage. Today, we offer drive up storage units ranging from 5x10 to 10x30 sizes and outdoor parking spaces up to 40ft in length. 

Future plans: We have five additional acres which we are currently clearing for future expansion.  



After renting too many units to customers outside in the cold ofwinter and realizing there might be a need for storage closer to downtown Rockford., in 1998 Rockford Self Storage expanded it's footprint and began buildding a facility on the corner of Belding rd. and the Beltline/Northland dr. Today, this location offers climate controlled units (temperature and humidity regulated) and drive up units. Sizes ranging from small 5x5x4 lockers all the way up to large 10x40 units. This is also where our main office is located where a manager is ready to assist you M-F 9am-5:30pm.

Future plans: At this location, we are approved from the township to add another climate controlled building and another outdoor storage building to offer more large size storage units. 


Upon customer request, in 2014 we expanded north of downtown Rockford (10511 Northland dr., 49341) to offer more storage and additional outdoor storage options for Boats and RV's. We cleared the land, built fences, installed LED lighting, installed an electronic gate, and built three buildings initially. A few years later in summer of 2017, we added two more buildings with sizes ranging from 5x10 to 10x30 units. We have units available. Give us a call today at (616) 874-8989 to reserve your space!

Future plans: We recently purchased the adjacent parcel to our existing property, with plans to expand in 2018 our outdoor storage, build a few more storage buildings, and even offer large buildings with storage condo units. 

In fall of 2016, Lake Bella Vista Storage Park on the corner of Blakely and Belding Rd. was put up for sale. Realizing we were in need of more outdoor Boat and RV storage for our customers, we put a bid in the hat and were fortunate enough to buy the property. This locations offers outdoor parking and is an ideal locations for anyone living near Lake Bella Vista, Silver or Bostwick Lake. Seeing the property was in rough shape, we went right to work cleaning up the property, installing new security cameras and a new keypad system, and had the electric gate serviced, safety features fixed and more added. We have many more ideas and projects up our sleeves with this site to make the rental experience better for our customers. Please do be patient with us during this transition period as we work towards accomplishing our goals. 


In the early 90's Mike and Roger decided to become business partners and put their focus into self-storage.
