East Bank Storage securely caches furniture, clothing, wine, or possessions of nearly any size in its secure buildings and lockers. Self-store units are available in an array of sizes with corresponding month-to-month leases. Prices vary by location and unit size, with secure spaces from 2'x4' lockers to 10'x15' expanses the size of a large bedroom or a tiny concert hall. The Ohio and Kingsbury location sports 10'x10' spaces suitable for the contents of a studio apartment ($165/month). Those in need of smaller spaces can rent a 5'x5' unit ($49/month) at the Lake and Halsted site to store small chairs, tables, or perfected furniture forts. All locations protect possessions with covered loading docks, 24-hour video surveillance, and stoic guard robots.
Oenophiles and sommeliers can finally find room for their bodies and wine collections to breathe thanks to climate-controlled wine-storage spaces, available for annual rent with sizes ranging from 8–90 cases ($105–$996 at Lake and Halsted or Ohio and Kingsbury). The climate-control system coddles cabernets by keeping the cellars between 50–59 degrees Fahrenheit and 60–70 percent humidity, as prescribed in Academie Du Vin Wine Cellar Book. East Bank protects pinot grigios from wine poachers with 24-hour surveillance, magnetic keys, and bionic fingerprint readers. Wine enthusiasts are pampered with complimentary services including delivery of wine to the home or office and pick-up from local wine stores.

- The units are a great size for the money (many different sizes available) and the facility is easy to maneuever [sic]. – jenny4iu, Ohio Street location, Citysearch
- I have had a rental locker here for over four years. The cost is great, the front desk people are super friendly, and the elevator is huge. They have carts available so you don't have to do much at all. – Gina H., 35th Street location, Yelp, 2/16/11
