Heartland Title Services, Inc. can fully endorse the clean, secure facility operated by Do-It YOURSELF STORAGE.


Always courteous and accommodating. The high tech system they have for access control and monitoring is state of the art and makes for a trouble free access at all times.


Kelley Hinsley, President Heartland Title Services, Inc.



"I was looking for storage for musical instruments during a move.  Due to the value of the instruments, I absolutely needed a secure, climate controlled facility.  Fortunately I came across Do-It-Yourself Storage in Dandridge, which has indoor, climate controlled storage units and excellent security that gave me peace of mind. 


I have moved all over the south, using several storage facilities along the way and this one is head and shoulders above any other I've used.  The automated rental process is easy and live customer service is available if needed.  


If you are looking for a clean, secure, climate controlled storage facility, this place is it!"

Best regards,




Dear Megan and John:


I am writing to let you know how pleased I was with your facility. I needed a locker for a couple of months to store a few things until my daughter could pick them up.


I found your facility clean, and cheerful. I never had any problem going to my locker in the evening after dark because I felt safe in your facility because of all the security camera's around and the fact that the storage area was monitored by you at your house 24 hours. I liked the idea that you had an  intercom that connected to your house should I have a problem and need to call you. Being able to pay for the locker on site was also a plus. The temperature inside was always comfortable, even on the coldest of days.


Thank you for making storage so convenient in Dandridge. I found the cost very reasonable compared to other storage facilities. I will definitely use your storage facility again for any storage needs I might have in the future.





"I found Do It Yourself Storage when I was looking for a storage facility that could protect my temperature sensitive equipment from the elements.


After comparing rates at local facilities, I found DIY Storage to have very competitive rates with outdoor facilities so choosing DIY Storage was a no brainer.


My items stayed protected, the facility was always clean, and the customer service was outstanding. I would recommend DIY Storage to anyone."




Hi Megan,


We found our facility to be a first class facility!  We were able to use the space for over 6 months and found it to be 100% "as advertised". 


The space was clean, the building was always available and well maintained.  We never had a problem during our time there.


We would highly recommend your facility to our family and friends.

"When I was planning my move back home to Tennessee I carried a number of very personal items with me in advance of the movers. I was concerned about finding a very secure and climate controlled storage facility.


I found Do-It-Yourself Storage in Dandridge and it was amazing. Everything was totally automated from the time I made the reservation until the time I arrived and moved into the very reasonably priced unit.


With secure access and 24-hour surveillance cameras the place is as safe as Fort Knox.  Response to any questions or concerns was immediate either via internet or phone. Extremely high-tech, yet personal. 


As an example of the incredible customer service, When I was transferring my belongings out of the unit, I accidentally left an important family heirloom, an oil painting of my great-great grandfather, behind in my unit. The owners of Do-It-Yourself spent several days personally searching the building and asking other unit renters about the painting before finally locating it and arranging to have it shipped back to me.

It just doesn't get any better than that. My heartfelt thanks to Megan and John for going above and beyond the call of duty. You will not be disappointed."





Just wanted to say this is the best storage unit I have ever rented from. It was warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If you ever had a problem, they were just a phone call away.


It was also so easy to pay right at the unit. If I ever have to rent again I will without a doubt rent here. The security system is great, I never once felt scared even at dark. I would highly recommend "DO-IT YOURSELF STORAGE".




Do-It Yourself Storage outside Dandridge, TN is one of the most modern, easy to use storage places I've found across the country!


Megan and John are wonderful, the place is spotless, safe and climate controlled. And the first month is 1/2 price! What more can you ask for?


SMILE...Cathy Sullens, a very happy customer!



This was my first experience with using a rental unit for storage. I highly recommend this company, they were very fair and the facility was always clean and available.


The owners very nice and helpful. The temperature was constant, and I felt very secure there, both with my belongings and with myself during all hours. I will recommend this facility to all.





Do-It Yourself Storage was really good. I liked how everything was monitored so there was no break ins. I would store stuff there again if i ever need too.





Do-It Yourself Storage was by far the best storage rental experience that I had. Customer service is excellent and the fact that storage is climate controlled and indoors is a big plus!  I would not want my belongings left at a storage place where someone could easily access it. 


With that being said, Do-It Yourself Storage was very secure and gave me peace of mind.  If I need any storage in the future, they will definitely be my first choice!


I would recommend them to anyone!






I hope you get this testimony.


Your self-storage facility is a great idea... too bad there's not one closer to Knoxville.  I would definitely use it again if I ever needed to or would recommend to another. 


I like that the facility is climate controlled, AVAILABLE 24/7 to meet my NEEDS AND SCHEDULE, and offers double-security (a locked unit within a locked and camera monitored exterior warehouse), and the do-it-yourself kiosk is a plus, too!







I would highly recommend this storage facility, easy access, well maintained and super nice management to work with!


I will personally tell others!


Thank you Megan for your help!






The storage facility was great for our needs! We used it to store some extra belongings until we had room for them in our house. I never had to worry about a thing while we used your facility- everything was safe and secure.


I also felt secure knowing that the doors locked behind me and unauthorized people could not get in if I was there at any time-day or night! I would definitely use Do It Yourself Storage again if the need arose.


Thank you for being there for us!




Do-It Yourself Storage is the BEST storage facility that I have ever used. They are climate controlled so I don't have to worry about my electronics getting too hot or too cold.


Megan is always available if I have any questions. They even have video surveillance indoors and outdoors. You can even talk to a real person if something is wrong. They also have totally awesome security. Besides the video surveillance they took a copy of my drivers license, a picture of me and my fingerprint. And I have my very own pin number.


I have not had a problem at all there. I have been storing here since September 2011.





We have always been able to access our unit with no problem. It is climate controlled storage and have never had a problem there either. The payment options are great.


I recommend Dandridge Do It Yourself Storage for your self storage needs.


Ronald & Flora



Wonderful service. Secure space.





Do-It Yourself Storage is great! It is very easy to rent a space through the electronic machine. Storage units are very clean and inside a Climate controlled building.


It's nice to be able to have the security of knowing my items are safely inside a building that is secured with cameras also.


Rates are very reasonable as well!


Thank you Megan!



We recently moved to the area and CLIMATE CONTROLLED storage was our #1 priority. There were no units in the city we moved to and the next closest was Maryville. Maryville was DOUBLE the price of Dandridge Storage.


I contacted Megan on the phone and she was very helpful and very nice to work with. Check in was easy and no one needed to be present. It was done via a computer screen outside.


I have never seen that kind of storage but it was perfect for what we needed. It's also very easy to get to since it is right off the interstate.

I moved from Ohio to Tennessee and needed a climate controlled storage unit until I could move into my new home. I chose Do It Yourself Storage in Dandridge, TN from an Internet search while still in Ohio.

This storage facility is extremely clean, the personnel very kind and helpful. It was so easy to set up the storage at their on-site kiosk and you can access your unit 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

I needed climate-controlled storage and this one was the only  one in area. Reasonable rates. Great experience. 



Stored by son's stuff from college. Location is great, easily accessible from I-40. The sign up process is simple, all computerized on site.


Overall, it's been a great experience.





Two words: NO CRITTERS! Squirrels, flying versions of the same, mice, birds, RATS, skunks. . . the list goes on! 


Had all my at home version of storage.  Much easier to simply pay for clean storage. . . unless, well, . . . your stored stuff just isn't that important.




Do-It Yourself Storage is a great storage facility.


Sign up was super easy and convenient, and even though I rented my unit at night while no one was there, they knew who I was the first time I saw them.


Great customer service.





Our experience with Do-It-Yourself Storage was very positive. The rental process was conducted at the onsite computer kiosk and was very quick and easy to do.


The facility provided equipment to help get our stuff from the car to the elevator and then into the storage unit that helped out tremendously by making the move in and out process easier than what I anticipated.


Overall, we were very satisfied and would recommend DIY Storage to others.





I just recently moved out of my unit at Do-It-Yourself Storage. I was very pleased with the entire process from renting the unit to checking out of the unit.

Megan made the process very easy and always answered any questions I had in a timely manner. The facility was clean and very secure. I would highly recommend this facility to my friends and family.

If I am ever in need of another storage unit, I will come back here.

Thanks Megan!





I appreciated the 24/7 accessability and the ability to make payments at the Kiosk or by auto draft.


Even though there are no attendants on sight on a regular basis the area is well lit and the camera security is reassuring.





I needed to rent a climate controlled unit while house hunting. We arrived from Florida very late at night. We were able to use the kiosk to rent a unit.


It was super easy. Megan also set up automatic monthly payments since I travel a lot. The facility is very clean with no bugs, rodents, ants  whatsoever.


There were dollys and carts available to help. There was a freight elevator to make our move to the second floor easier. There was a broom and dustpan to clean out the unit when we left.


It was easy to get to from the road. The climate control was always just right. I used the unit for longer than I expected, and my furniture was in fine shape.


I was super happy with the price and the building. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone needing storage.


Thanks so much, Anita
