About Iron Gate Storage

Iron Gate Storage is a local small business that specializes in mini-storage and truck rentals and caters to public, business, and government customers. We have five conveniently located Vancouver facilities as well as one facility in Beaverton. Iron Gate’s mission is to make storage and moving easy and convenient for all our customers. We strive to accomplish this by focusing on the three most important aspects of a small business:
• Develop and maintain positive relationships within our communities.
• Maintain unparalleled integrity in customer service
• Offer a one stop shop experience.

At Iron Gate Storage we don’t just stop at storage; we offer an extensive array of moving supplies, mailboxes, fax services, internet cafés, as well as Penske truck rentals.

Community involvement is very important to our entire staff; we participate in the yearly KGW Toy Drive, year round food and clothing drives; all donated to local charities including Share House and Portland Rescue Mission. Iron Gate Storage is also a Corporate Sponsor of a non-kill animal shelter, Furry Friends, running bi-yearly garage sales and participating in other fund raising events.
