About Southern Illinois Storage

About Southern Illinois Storage

My name is Aaron Eubanks. I am a life long resident of Southern Illinois attending school in Christopher, Illinois and living most of my life in Buckner, Illinois. After high school I worked full time at a local factory and I went to college at night. I took several classes, but was most interested in business classes. I completed my classes at college and took what I learned to the bank in the form of a business plan. After meeting with the loan officer and answering all there questions they approved my loan. This started my journey in the self storage industry.

With help from family and friends we built our first self storage building in September 2002. We went on to build two more several years later.  I wouldn’t of been able to it without the help of my family members and friends. In 2013 we expanded to offer portable storage containers.  No other business in Southern Illinois offers the same type of portable storage container that we do. We park on the street then roll our portable storage containers off and roll them on your property where you need it most. I still have family and friends that support my business by sharing our services with others.

I work very hard to provide the very best in everything Southern Illinois Storage has to offer you as a customer. We are different from the self storage facility you may see down the street.  I chose to offer a different self storage experience by cleaning, spraying bug repellent, setting off bug bombs, keeping outside of the facility clean, offering different payment options (accepts all major credit cards, checks, money orders and cash), sending out invoices, prorate your rent so when you are finished renting with us any credit is refunded to you, and provide special guardian cylinder locks all at no additional charge to our customers.

Hope you know a little more about me and how my business Southern Illinois Storage was built. Give me a call 618-724-9238 let me earn your business.
