The Lock Up Self Storage is proud to announce the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for their newest addition to the Chicagoland Lock Up family of self storage facilities. The event will take place at the new Lakeview location situated at 3705 N Lincoln Avenue on April 19, 2018 at 3pm. The Northcenter Chamber of Commerce along with other members of the surrounding Lake View community will be on hand to enjoy light refreshments and a ribbon cutting ceremony. This is a wonderful opportunity for surrounding residents and businesses alike to become acquainted with The Lock Up Self Storage's newest facility, the services they offer, and learn more about how The Lock Up makes a point to be involved in each of their unique local communities.

"The new Lakeview Self Storage location is the largest of all the Lock Up locations nationwide with two separate buildings totalling 112,700 square feet and 1,400 climate controlled self storage units," says Andrea Carnes, Vice President of Operations for The Lock Up Self Storage. "In order to best serve the storage needs of the bustling neighborhoods of North Center, Roscoe Village, and the many pockets of Lake View, we knew our clients would need a lot of options. We transformed an old factory into a top of the line self storage facility and built an entirely separate four story building on the property that houses over 1000 units of climate controlled storage units, including climate controlled drive up units that are protected by an electronic coded security gate."

Each building features two drive in load in bays that provide protection from the harsh Chicago elements while tenants load and unload their belongings. Once inside, clients have access to free hand carts and large passenger elevators. And in an effort to make things even easier for their clients, The Lock Up Lake View has a move in truck that is free to use with each new storage unit rental. In addition to these features, the new facility also has amenities that clients have come to expect from The Lock Up such as carpeted interior hallways and units, a free lock for each storage unit and motion sensitive lighting that helps reduce energy consumption.

The Lock Up takes the protection of tenants' belongings very seriously, and the new Lake View facility is no exception. To ensure tenants' peace of mind, the Lock Up in Lake View has 24 hour security camera monitoring and electronic code keypads at every entry point to both buildings to ensure that only tenants have access to the property and storage units.

While The Lock Up Self Storage's facilities are constructed to serve their tenants' every storage need, the company also places great importance on their customers' satisfaction. Every office has a wide selection of packing materials for sale and is staffed with knowledgeable and helpful team members during convenient hours. The office will even accept deliveries for tenants, relieving them of the need to wait around for deliveries and the fear that items could be stolen from their porch.

In addition to the facilities and the customer service, The Lock Up has developed technology to help clients even when they're not on site. Tenants can easily rent storage units and make monthly payments on The Lock Up's website . And for those people who are constantly on the go, there's a Lock Up app that enables Lock Up tenants to keep track of which facilities their units are located, the security keypad codes for each location, as well as the storage unit numbers.

Additional features include the ability to photograph a unit's contents and label them within the app, quickly and easily pay bills online through their mobile website, as well as a very useful “tap to call” feature that will automatically call the tenant’s Lock Up facility. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices and is available for free on iTunes and Google Play .To learn more about the new Lake View Lock Up, visit
