Our History


Bradenton residents Steve and Maureen Wilson began as pioneers in the self-storage industry, opening their first facility in Bradenton at 32nd Street & Cortez Road in September 1977. The Wilsons believe it’s been clear that God has continued to bless the company and He has allowed Hide-Away to pursue with increasing vigor its purpose of serving its customers, employees, and the community with excellence. “I’ve no doubt that He will continue to keep His good hand on Hide-Away. And one day we will be seen as one of the country’s leading innovators in a new generation of self-storage that is aimed – as our company purpose statement declares - at 'serving our customers with excellence'," says Steve Wilson.

Through the 1980s and into the mid-1990s, Hide-Away Storage continued to grow at a steady pace, with its last traditional self-storage facility opening in Ft. Myers in 1997.

Our Growth


Since its beginning Hide-Away has expanded to serve Florida’s West Coast from Zephyrhills in the north to Naples in the south. In 2016, Hide-Away associated with National Storage Affiliates which has provided the capital for it to acquire facilities in Tampa, Brandon, Zephyrhills and Punta Gorda, in addition to its home markets of Palmetto and Bradenton. There are now more than 20 self-storage and portable storage facilities in the Hide-Away network.

Portable Storage Operations


In 2000, Hide-Away began servicing customers in the Bradenton/Sarasota area with Portable Storage. Over the next four years, the company’s Mobile operations expanded to multiple leased warehouses in Bradenton/Sarasota and also in Naples/Ft. Myers. In 2004 and 2005, Hide-Away consolidated its portable storage operations from leased warehouse space to company-owned warehouses in Ft. Myers and Sarasota.
