Storage Tips

Starting Out

Daffodil Storage offers self storage units, boat storage, RV storage, car storage, vehicle parking and more. We strive to make storage easy and convenient for you. With locations in Tacoma, Puyallup, Milton, Auburn, Buckley, Lacey, Port Orchard & growing, we have your storage needs covered throughout Pierce County and the Kitsap Peninsula. Although we recognize you have many choices when it comes to storage units, we’re confident you will see why Daffodil Storage is right for you once you know what we have to offer.

We offer a large selection of available storage sizes. From 12.5 sq ft to 600 sq ft and everything in between, we are sure to have the right size to fit your needs. At Daffodil Storage, you will find both Drive-Up and Interior Storage units. Drive-Up units are convenient for larger items so you can unload directly into your unit. Interior units are accessible through our wide and brightly-lit hallways and offer extra protection from the elements while moving your items. A leasing associate will work with you to find the size and type of unit best-suited to meet your needs. Try our interactive size guides on any facility page to determine which size is best for you.

We know your belongings are important and that’s why we are proud to offer heated storage units. Units offering this feature are heated above dew point using a radiant heat system or a forced air system to help maintain the integrity of your items. This is especially helpful for storing papers, pictures, textiles, or items that should not get wet. Not all of our units are heated, so make sure the one you’re getting is heated if it best suits your stored goods. Ask our helpful leasing associates today about the benefits of storing your goods in a heated unit.

With locations throughout Pierce and Kitsap counties, locations in King county, Thurston county and growing, we’re confident you will find the right storage unit at the right price to meet your needs. All of our locations offer push carts, moving supplies, and truck rentals to help make your move as stress-free as possible. You can access your unit from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the year, so your storage fits into your schedule when it’s convenient for you.

The safety and security of your belongings is our top priority. For your peace of mind, all our storage facilities are fenced with an electronic gate. Security cameras are dispersed throughout our properties for additional protection. Some Daffodil Storage locations even offer individual door alarms, smart locks, and on-site resident managers to provide an additional level of security. Individual unit door alarms provide an electronic record every time your storage unit door is opened and closed. Be sure to ask a leasing manager about features specific to the storage unit you are looking at.


Reserving your unit at Daffodil Storage is free and you can change your mind anytime. No deposit required! If you choose to make a reservation on our website you may find discounted pricing and limited time savings. Should you have any questions or are simply not sure about the right size to meet your needs, give us a phone call today and we’ll be glad to help you.

We understand your plans may change and that’s why your space is flexible. We don’t use long-term contracts and you can move out after one month, many months, or years! Changing your storage unit to a larger or smaller size is not a problem either. Our storage consultants can help you resize to fit your needs. When you no longer need our space, we ask for ten days advance notice to move out. If your plans change, you can always change your move-out date as well! Know that we only prorate in, we cannot prorate out, so we suggest moving out at the end of your selected month.

Making a reservation online locks in the price and discount you see on our website. It also guarantees that we will have the size you need when you are ready to move in. Rates and specials can change quickly, so reserving your unit ensures your savings. Some discounts are only offered online. There is no obligation or cost when making a reservation and you can cancel your reservation anytime.

When you reserve a unit we can make sure that size, price, and promotion are available until you are ready to move-in. And did we mention, making a reservation is free? To make a reservation online or over the phone, all we need is a name, phone number, and email address. Once you’ve made a reservation on our website, we can email you a link to our Express Move-In online where you can fill out the rental agreement and move in as early as the same day!*

Moving In

We’re here every step of the way to make your storage experience exceptional. We offer boxes, tape, packing supplies, rolling carts and truck rentals at our facilities to make your move easy. Our leasing associates are an excellent resource for packing tips and tricks to help speed up your move.

When you’re ready to move-in, you can choose one of two ways: online, or in person. Whichever you choose, you will need a form of identification and a payment method. You can complete all of your rental paperwork easily online from anywhere. Some of our offices also offer kiosks to complete your lease, so that you can complete your rental agreement online but be able to ask office staff for help if you need it.

Otherwise, if you prefer to fill out paperwork in our office, we recommend allowing 15 minutes to complete this process and please make sure to arrive during our office hours. Our leasing associates will review important terms and conditions and information about the facility at which you are storing. You can also purchase moving supplies in our office.

Now, you can complete your rental lease and paperwork totally online! Make a reservation on our website. Someone from our team will contact you soon after and send you an email. All you have to do is click the link in your email! Just have your photo ID and payment method ready, and you’ll be all set up in no time. Once your paperwork is complete, we can give you your personal gate code and instruction on how to get your complimentary lock. You could have access to your new storage unit the same day.* Talk about convenience!

Daffodil Storage offers complimentary truck rentals for use at the time of your initial move-in. Due to high demand, we strongly recommend you make a reservation at least one week in advance. Please check individual locations for further restrictions. Truck reservations are subject to availability.

Your complimentary truck rental will include the first 20 miles and one day. Additional miles are billed on a per mile rate. Insurance is required and the minimum rental age is 25. A $150 fully-refundable cash deposit is also required.

Make sure you take advantage of our complimentary onsite moving supplies. Available moving supplies include hand trucks, furniture dollies, and appliance carts. Certain items are never allowed in a storage unit, including perishable food, live plants, animals, flammable liquids, and explosives. Illegal items like drugs or certain firearms are also prohibited. It is suggested not to store priceless heirlooms, art, or otherwise sentimental items.

Remember to stack items with the heaviest or largest boxes on the bottom, and lighter items on top. Don’t stack higher than you can reach, and remember to leave a walkway. Label your boxes if you can for easy retrieval. Put plastic on the floor to protect items from dirt, and wrap any furniture or valuable items to prevent dirt, dust, and moisture from ruining anything. Boxes, plastic covers, and more can be purchased in our office to help make moving your items easy.

Your Account

Daffodil Storage accepts all major credit cards, cash, and checks. Remember, your rent is due on the first of each month. For your convenience, you can make a payment online through our website, over the phone, or in person. Online payments can be made as a one-time transaction, or paid through your account.

We also offer a convenient and easy automatic payment option where your storage rent can be automatically charged to your credit card every month. Never forget to pay your rent or hassle with late fees again! If this interests you, ask your office staff to set you up on autopay today.

Managing your account online is easy through our website. Simply click the My Account button from the top right of our website, select Manage Account, and pick the location at which you store from the menu. From there you can manage your account, update your information, make payments, and view your account history.

You have access to your unit or parking space every day of the year from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m, including holidays. We never have keys to your unit so should you lose the keys to your unit please see a leasing associate about regaining access. Please separate your keys as soon as you receive them to prevent losing all of them at once and needing a lock cut.

We are sorry to see you go, but we get it! We recommend moving out on the last day of the month because we cannot refund partial month’s rent. To vacate, simply give our office ten days written notice. Should your plans change after giving notice, just keep us informed. On your move-out day, make sure to remove the lock and empty out the unit completely. After vacating, please stop in the office and let a leasing associate know so we can finalize your record. Otherwise, you may continue being charged rent.
