Have you ever stopped to think about the endless possibilities a storage unit holds?

What would you keep in a storage unit? It’s easier – and quicker – to ask what can’t you keep? There’s not much you aren’t able to keep in self storage.  At The Space Program, our units have seen all sorts of things, from the practical to the downright unique.

Let’s dive into some of the extraordinary ways our clients have made use of their space, proving that when it comes to storage, the sky—or rather, space—is the limit.

🥁 Drum Roll for the Drummers

Imagine the beat dropping… in a storage unit! That’s right, one of our cosmic uses includes a drummer using the unit not just to store their drums, but as a private studio to practice their solos. No noise complaints here – in space, no one can hear you drum.

🎄 O Christmas Tree, Where Art Thou?

Yes, we’ve had Christmas trees too! Not just one, but forests of them.

🚗 Classic Cars and Hovercrafts

From vintage wheels to hovercrafts that glide, our containers are like hangars for your rides. Whether it’s a classic car awaiting its next sunny day cruise or a hovercraft gearing up for its next adventure, we’ve got the space.

❄️ Let It Snow, Let It Snow…Fake Snow!

And for the grand finale, we’ve even stored snow. Yes, you read that right. (Mostly) fake snow, for film sets, making every day a potential winter wonderland.


Whether it’s for business inventory, a hobby that’s outgrown the home, or just the need to declutter your living space, we offer a flexible solution that adapts to your needs.

So, what will you launch into storage next? Remember, in our universe, there’s a space for every dream and every necessity.
