This storage facility is as secure as they come

Fenced, gated, video cameras and owners on-site make for a secure outdoor storage site


Kasey and Debbie Cooper will store anything for anybody — as long as it’s not affected by the weather.

Their exterior-only storage facility is secure in every way possible, with tight fencing topped with barbed wire, exterior lighting, coded gate system and video surveillance.

The open storage area at 26 Kelso Storage is covered in deep gravel to keep it mud-free in wet weather, making it perfect for RVs of any size, large trucks, fifth-wheel or conventional trailers, cars, boats, utility trailers and heavy equipment. At least three acres of storage area are already prepared with a gravel coating, and another three acres can be prepared when necessary.

Kasey Cooper says the advantage of storing at 26 Kelso Storage is its location. It is close to Highway 26 at its intersection with Kelso Road, just across Kelso Road from Geren’s Farm Supply.

“This is convenient for getting on and off Highway 26,” he said. “We’re close to Sandy and between Gresham and Sandy, which makes this location very convenient. And we have a wide entry gate, so big trucks and long RVs can maneuver in and out easily.”

The Coopers, who have resided in the Sandy area for 20 years, live at the storage site; therefore, their presence adds to the security of the facility.

In addition to the storage area, propane service is scheduled to become available at the site within about one week, he said.

Other services offered at 26 Kelso Storage include an air station, battery jumper service, washing service, cover and uncover service, an ice machine and full insurance.

Both short- and long-term storage is available at 26 Kelso Storage, Debbie Cooper said.

“This storage is not just for long-term,” she said, “but we also offer short-term storage. Even if somebody has an emergency and needs a place to store something (outdoors).”

Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Gate hours for tenants are from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. each day. Monthly storage rates are based on the measured length of the vehicle.
