Who We Are:

ValStor is a family-owned, locally operated storage company offering both traditional self-storage and convenient valet (on demand) storage service.

ValStor is a sister company of Vanguard Archives, one of Chicago’s oldest independent commercial record management firms. We bring many years of professional experience in the storage industry to Chicago’s South Side.

Our secure 250,000 sq. ft. warehouse is located just 5 miles south of downtown Chicago. ValStor is easy to find:  look for the historic clock tower structure at 3900 South Michigan Avenue (at Pershing Road). We are easy to access from either Lake Shore Drive or from I-90/94.
