Self Storage For Movie Producers and Film Crews


At Los Angeles Self Storage, we are in the middle of it all.  At our scenic location near the heart of Hollywood, we offer film crews the ability to film from our picture-perfect rooftop view.  I'd say we have a special passion for the entertainment industry... but how could we not, being located in beautiful Los Angeles? In addition to captivating film scouts and crews large and small with our panoramic skyline view of Downtown Los Angeles (check out our video below for a glimpse of our amazing views), we also offer self storage units specifically for the entertainment industry.

Why Store Film Equipment At Los Angles Self Storage?

You may be wondering, why it would even be necessary in the first place to store your equipment in a storage facility?  We believe there are a number of beneficial reasons to store your film equipment at Los Angeles Self Storage.

First, it keeps everything organized.  All your equipment can be kept in one convenient location.  Keeping everything in one place makes it easier for the entire crew.  Everyone knows where everything is, and anyone with access (a key and a security code), can retrieve the equipment on an as needed basis.  That way, you don't have to rely on just one person to bring everything to the set.

Second, loading and unloading is easy and convenient. Whether you a have  large amount of film equipment or are just getting started, it's truly easy to retrieve your equipment on a moment's notice. Enjoy our plentiful parking and loading areas (we can accommodate large moving/freight trucks with ease). Enjoy our industrial strength elevator to make routine loading and unloading easy for your busy film schedule.

At Los Angeles Self Storage, we also offer climate controlled units for the film industry.  As opposed to keeping things stored in a garage or warehouse, with a lot of exposure to the outside world, and poor (if any) security measures, climate control is usually preferred by film crews to store their delicate, and not to mention very expensive, equipment.  There are many benefits to using climate controlled units as opposed to units that do not have climate control. 

By definition, a climate controlled unit keeps the temperature between 58 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, all day long, every day of the year.  As with temperature regulation, humidity is regulated as well.  The design of climate controlled storage units also discourages dust and pests.  We offer many climate controlled units at Los Angeles Self Storage.

A final reason to consider renting a storage unit is the possibility of having excess equipment.  Los Angeles Self Storage may also be an excellent option for equipment overflow.  If your film production company has expanded, and you have extra equipment, storing it nearby is an excellent option.  You can choose to sell it in the future, or maybe it will come in handy having extra equipment stored away.  If your staff expands as well, there's always the option to dig out the equipment from storage. 

We Have Experience With Film Crews

Los Angeles Self Storage (part of the Smart Self Storage family) has something that many other places simply do not: vast experience in the entertainment industry.

Whether it's our panoramic rooftop deck with view, our long interior hallways, our multiple levels of garage/loading area, our ability to host Hollywood film crews 24/7, or our large parking lot with convenient loading/unloading in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, film scouts and film crews have fallen in love with our facility. Over the years, we have worked closely with a multitude of film crews on productions large and small. We understand the film industry. If you enjoy TV and films as much as we do, you have probably noticed that films and TV shows of vastly different genres have made such use of storage facilities, including the globally loved, and now classic shows such as Dexter, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, etc.

Because of our experience with film productions, it is only natural that we also offer self storage units for film crews. It makes perfect sense: You can film here, and you can also store here. We are a one stop shop for the entertainment industry.

Ready To Rent?

We have a space for whatever your needs may be.  We offer a number of climate controlled units for the storage of your film items. Whether you're looking for something small, something big, or something just right, we have got you covered.

If you wish to create a film set, or wish to rent a unit, feel free to give us a call or shoot us an email.  We're more than happy to accommodate in any way we can, and answer your questions.
