About self storage in Oklahoma
Looking for storage in Oklahoma?
Oklahoma is one of the most geographically–diverse states in the U.S. Oklahoma has four primary mountain ranges – the Ouachita Mountains, the Arbuckle Mountains, the Wichita Mountains and the Ozark Mountains – and the state also includes part of the Flint Hills, prairies and forests.
Oklahoma has a large Native American ancestry, and there are 25 different native languages spoken in Oklahoma, which is the most of any state. Native Americans have nearly 70 tribes represented in the state.
Most of the state’s population resides in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, two of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. Norman, home of the University of Oklahoma, is the third–largest city, followed by Lawton, Broken Arrow, Edmond, Midwest City, Moore, Enid and Stillwater, home of Oklahoma State University.
StorageFront has facilities in all of these cities and lists more than 600 self–storage facilities throughout the Sooner State. Students should check facilities for temporary storage during long breaks.
With so much geographic diversity, the Sooner State has hot and cold temperatures of both extremes, which is often the perfect mix to create severe weather. The state lies in the Tornado Alley, an area characterized by high levels of interaction between cold and warm air masses that produce severe weather. Oklahoma averages more than 50 tornadoes per year, one of the highest rates in the world.
Some self–storage units are climate controlled, to keep items safe from extreme swings in weather. To see if the self–storage facility closest to you has climate–controlled units, check the amenities on StorageFront.
While Oklahoma’s crime rate has decreased in recent years, burglary and theft rates have remained steady. If the crime rate is high in your area, check to see if a facility has added fencing and security amenities, such as video surveillance and 24–hour lighting. You can also purchase insurance for your property.
