Champlin has recently welcomed Acorn Mini Storage, a Minnesota based self storage company.
Acorn Mini Storage has been in business for more than 20 years and, after opening its new location in Champlin, has 10 others sites throughout the Twin Cities metro area. They also have locations in Blaine, Chaska, Cottage Grove, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Maplewood, two locations in Minneapolis and one in Shakopee.
“There is no Acorn without an oak tree,” said Acorn Mini Storage owner Chris Kirwan. “Thank you to everyone here today that made this possible.”
Acorn Mini Storage allows clients 24/7 access to their storage unit and is open 365 days a year. Clients have the ability to create their own unique code when entering and exiting the facility, providing secure access to storage units. Sign a lease agreement with Acorn, and they’ll even throw in a free, high security disk lock for the unit.
“We are so excited to welcome you to the city,” said Mayor ArMand Nelson. “It takes a lot of people to make this happen and we wish you great success.”
The Champlin facility has 596 units total and each unit comes in various sizes. Free wooden palettes are made available for clients and shelving can be rented as well for a small fee.
Acorn Mini Storage offers short and long-term storage in either temperature controlled or non-temperature controlled spaces to accommodate the customer’s needs and to maintain their stored items short or long term. Temperature controlled units keep belongings cooler than 80 degrees in the summer time and warmer than 55 degrees in Minnesota’s frigid winters.
By renting a storage unit at Acorn Mini Storage, customers can store furniture, paper records, collectables, heirlooms, extra inventory and more. Renters are not permitted to store human or animal food, garbage, ammunition, tires, explosives, paint, solvents, anything odorous, noxious, corrosive or classified as flammable, hazardous, or toxic. Leases for a storage unit are flexible from month to month contract and Acorn only requires a 10 day move out notice.
Furthermore, Acorn also provides an online billing and account management service allowing customers to pay monthly rental fees anytime, anywhere, from the convenience of a computer or mobile device.
“At Acorn, we know that moving isn’t the most fun thing to do, but we want to do everything we can to make the transition easier,” said Marketing Director M.E. Kirwan.
