When we opened, the self storage industry was still fairly new, but the first Self Storage traditions may have roots in ancient China when people buried their belongings within clay urns that were then placed in underground “storage” areas.
The current trend of modern self storage has a mixed history. The Texas trend was documented in this interesting article titled, From Storage Doors to Storage Wars.
But one of the early facilities in the USA might be the facility established in 1958 by the Collum Family of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Big Bear Self Storage broke ground in 1983 and is happy to have been serving residents and visitors of the Big Bear Valley consistently since then.
