Underground & Naturally Climate Controlled Storage Facility in KCMO

With our underground location, you'll receive the benefits of a natural climate controlled storage space while also making smart, eco-friendly choices. No matter the weather outside, this space maintains a moderate climate year-round that doesn’t require heating or cooling (cutting down our carbon footprint and preserving the earth’s fuel resources). In addition to a natural climate environment for all of our storage units, you’ll always load and unload in dry conditions.

If you’re storing items that are temperature and humidity sensitive, our natural climate-controlled storage in Kansas City is a perfect solution to helping maintain their integrity. Delicate items such as instruments, vinyl records, documents, and wooden furniture are susceptible to warping, cracking, or melting when exposed to extreme temperatures that come with storing in garages, attics, and sheds at home.

In addition to traditional storage spaces, Smart Storage KC is proud to offer car storage, boat storage, and RV parking to meet both personal and business needs. When you find yourself short on space in your garage or driveway, or need a place to park a fleet of work trucks, we have you covered! Because our self storage facility is located underground and benefits from natural climate control, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing your vehicle is protected from extreme elements including hail, sun, wind, snow, and more.

Our flexible month-to-month leases allow you to store your RV and boat during the offseason, or your classic car year round.

Keena, the storage specialist for the KC location, made this one of the most enjoyable and frictionless transactions I’ve done recently. The underground facility itself is as impressive as it is unique. Would highly recommend it to anybody with storage needs in the area.

This was a great experience. I have rented several units over the last couple of years and found it is usually never smooth cause so many places have gone to a "central" office mentality with no one on site. The office staff was courteous and allowed me to see the unit before renting which is a major plus. Security is top notch with a security person at the top of the cave that requires individuals to input their code after hours to enter the underground and you have to input your code a second time to gain access to the cage areas. ONLY warning would be that these are cages in a cave. The floors are uneven and if you are storing very large items you may need to confirm you can get the items in PRIOR to renting.
