About Us

Where we're located

Barnwell Storage was created out of a sense of need – and a sense of community. Founder and CEO Henry "Sandy" Wise recalls that, in 2005, after the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina, he saw people in real need for storage. You remember – wreckage and "blue roofs" everywhere, trees down, standing water. Out of that need to put lives "in the dry" while we put Mobile back together, a company was born.

Early on, the decision was made to create a full-service facility that could be all things to all people – a place where folks could run small businesses, store their boats, RVs and campers, and keep their belongings in climate- and non-climate-controlled spaces. Secure spaces with unscalable fences and state-of-the-art card readers to keep businesses and belongings safe.

Our Philosophy

At Barnwell Storage, we want to make the customer feel they have protected their assets and increased their value by keeping them in a clean, safe, climate-controlled environment – safe from the sun and elements away from the danger of being ruined in some attic or garage with the chance of fire or water damage . They are less likely to be damaged by fire.

At Barnwell Storage, our future is bright ...

We started in 2005 at Crowne Point Business Park – where we are today. We have new buildings on the drawing board for 2009 – and future plans include four 6000-square-foot, free-standing buildings for retail.

Finally, at the end of 2009, we plan to build our first strip-mall-style building. Our first tenant will be ourselves – Barnwell Storage's sales office. For the first time, we will offer our customers locks, boxes, rental trailers – in sum, whatever you need to make the transition from your attic or garage to safe, secure storage with us.

As we envisioned in the beginning, three long years ago, Barnwell's commitment to full service, to good value, to environmental security will have come full circle and attained the ultimate level in product and performance.
