Pomona is a family-friendly city well-situated in Southern California. Hop on the 10 Freeway headed west and you’re in Santa Monica (just be sure to avoid rush hour traffic). Head east on the 10 and you can enjoy a poolside retreat in Palm Springs or skip up to Big Bear Lake or Lake Arrowhead. Take the 57 south and you’ll be in the OC in no time. All that to say, there is a lot to do within a short drive of Pomona. This means many Pomona residents have a lot of toys to store.
In addition to the typical storage unit contents of refrigerators, beds, couches, and boxes of photos or tax returns, many Pomona storage units house jet skis, hiking boots and poles, snow clothes and gear, and of course beach umbrellas. Other Pomona storage facilities even have RV or boat storage to safe keep residents’ largest toys. If you are a loyal Storage Outlet user, our nearest RV and boat storage locations are Fullerton [LINK TO FULLERTON STORAGE OUTLET] and Bellflower [LINK TO BELLFLOWER STORAGE OUTLET]. We are also happy however to refer you to a reputable Pomona storage facility with RV or boat spaces.
Pomona is home to the Auto Club Raceway, famous for its drag racing. Consequently, Pomona self storage has a greater concentration of storage units with hot rods and other races cars than most parts of the country. Of course many Pomona storage units also house the tires, tools, and other parts used to maintain these, well, high-maintenance cars. The L.A. County Fair is also hosted in Pomona, so we’re confident many Pomona storage facilities have fair prizes, like those life-size bears dads try so hard to win (but moms don’t think match their home’s decor).
Regardless of what you need to store, you can certainly find affordable Pomona storage. There are nearly 100 storage facilities in Pomona and the surrounding towns of Ontario, Montclair, Glendora, and Rancho Cucamonga, so you are sure to find a great storage deal in Pomona.
While California has over 200,000 military members, Pomona does not have a large military presence. There are US Marine Corp recruitment offices near Pomona as well as US Army recruiting stations and Air Force Reserve recruitment offices. Pomona itself however, does not have any military bases.
Pomona is however home to many vets, who have served in the Army, Air Force, Navy or Coast Guard. Just like the rest of America, many of these retired military members need storage units. On top of finding the most affordable Pomona storage, these vets can inquire about military storage discounts.
When a military member selects a Pomona storage facility however, there is more to consider than simply price. Do you need a climate-controlled storage unit to protect paintings, expensive furniture, or musical instruments? Temperatures in Pomona can top 110 degrees on occasion. Do you need to access your storage unit during off hours? If so ensure you can get after-hour gate access and select a safe Pomona storage facility with enhanced security measures. Then of course there is location, location, location - and really this comes back to cost. Selecting a storage facility right in your backyard is convenient, but if you only need to access your self storage on occasion, then it probably makes sense to drive an extra ten to thirty minutes to find the best storage deal in Pomona.
Pomona is a big of a college town even though “Pomona College” is not actually in Pomona! Western University of Health Sciences and California State Polytechnic University are both located in Pomona. Neighboring Claremont is home to the Claremont Colleges (the “5Cs”) which are the women’s college Scripps College, Claremont McKenna College, Pomona College, Pitzer College, and Harvey Mudd College. There is also Mr. San Antonio College in neighboring Walnut as well as University of La Verne in La Verne.
That’s a lot of students within a small area! Outsmart other student self storage users with these helpful tips.
#1 Find the right Pomona storage facility. This means the best price for self storage, but also a clean facility with strong security measures. Also consider whether you need temperature-controlled self storage since not all facilities have climate-controlled units. To find the location that best fits your needs, compare locations on the Expedia of self storage, www.StorageFront.com.
#2 Set up auto-pay. Admit it. We know you’ve watched Storage Wars. Enough said. Sign up to pay for your Pomona storage unit with auto-pay so you don’t see your stuff sold on reality TV. It might make for a funny story at frat parties, but you don’t want to lose everything you cared enough about to store for safekeeping.
#3 Don’t keep things longer than you need. When you started college you may have dug tie-dye and lava lamps, but your taste might be more Ralph Lauren than Forever 21 by the time you graduate. Don’t pay to store things you don’t like or need anymore. That would be silly. You are not silly, you are an intelligent college student! Downsize to a smaller more affordable storage unit, or make room for future storage needs.
#4 Donate unneeded items for the tax deduction. If you are a silver spooner you can ignore this self storage tip. However, if you’re working your way through college then you know there’s nothing worse than paying taxes. If you clean out unneeded items from storage, donate them to your Pomona self storage Charity Unit. Storage Outlet has a charity unit you can donate to (even if you don’t rent there) and your donation is tax deductible (be sure to get your charitable donation receipt!).

Unit sizes advertised for rent are approximate only and units at the self-storage facility may differ slightly in shape and/or size. Customers should inspect the actual unit to be rented before signing a rental agreement and should base the decision to rent on the inspection of the unit and not on the advertised unit size. Rental amounts for a particular unit are not based on square footage measurements.
