Cremeens U-Stor-It

Cremeens U-Stor-It provides storage needs for three of our local towns. The business has locations for self-storage set up in Hopedale, Minier, and Delavan, IL. Cremeens U-Stor-It is a family owned and operated business that began in 1993. Myrna Cremeens and her husband built two storage buildings as a way to make a good retirement income. Those first two buildings were located in Hopedale and Minier, with one in each town. Myrna explained that they kept adding buildings to each location as they felt it was necessary and expanded to Delavan about 7 years ago.

Cremeens U-Stor-It offers a range of options for storage unit size. The options range from mini-storage units to large units. The options for sizes are 8 by 10 feet, 10 by 12 feet, 10 by 16 feet, 10 by 20 feet, and 10 by 24 feet. You cannot beat the price for these storage units either. The price range is from $40 to $60 dollars. The only downside to these prices is that all of the units are currently full. Myrna stated that there is almost always a waiting list to get into storage space. If you are lucky enough to get a spot in one of Cremeens U-Stor-It buildings, there is a special discount that can be used! The special is that if you pay for 11 months of rent in advance you will get the 12th month free! There is an option to pay your bill online if you prefer paying that way.

Myrna discussed her favorite part of running the business, “It is easy to run and something you can do part-time. Everything goes pretty smoothly.” There are two different phrases that she would want a potential customer to know. First, “We are friendly, and the buildings are clean!” Also, that the prices are cheap, but the buildings are full.
