Our Team 

Our Team 


Carol Ruhf - Manager

Carol has been a vital part of our team for almost 9 years now. We like to call her the real "boss" around the office. She enjoys meeting knew people and getting to know our customers. She keeps our boat afloat and our office in tip top shape. Without her, we just don't know what we would do. 

Michael Shoemaker - Customer Service Specialist 

Michael is our newest member of the team. He is full of energy and quickly offers himself to assist any customer. Michael has already adapted well to our environment and we are more than thrilled to have him aboard. When he's out of the office he enjoys golfing, fishing, and boating every chance he gets. 


David DeGraaf - Superman

David helps us with just about anything. From cleaning units, to assisting customers on call, David keeps our sites clean and safe for you and your belongings at all times. Say "Hello" if you see him around. He enjoys chit chat about food, medicine, gardening, athletics, and pretty much anything else. 

Malachi and Griffin - The Dream Team 

From landscaping to painting, these men help our sites look clean and well kept all summer long. Their "go-getter" mentality and positive attitude encourage us all to work will excellence. 


Jordan DeGraaf - General Manager

Jordan is one of the newest members of the crew. He and his wife recently moved to the Grand Rapids areas from Denver. Jordan's job is to ensure that every one of our customers has a fantastic experience storing with us. He's usually always around, but if you don't find him in the office he is quick to respond. He regularly enjoys freezing like a popsicle in Lake Michigan trying to catch waves. 


Roger DeGraaf - Founder  

Roger has been around since the beginning. He's a cheerful guy full of energy, wisdom and conversation. His two hands helped build and expand our first site. Sadly, he's not in the office everyday, but it's always a pleasant surprise when he does pop in. On his down time, he enjoys bird watching and spending time with his big family. 


Mike DeGraaf - Founder  

Mike is the visionary behind Rockford Self Storage. His "go-getter" mentality and his determination to see a plan come together is how the storage has continued to grow over the years to serve more and more of the Rockford community. When he's not hard at work, he's usually running to warmer weather to go scuba diving or boating with good friends.
