UPDATE: We have our winners...and our 'dillo's name!

7/18/19 UPDATE: We received so many great name suggestions that we decided to extend the contest through Monday, July 15, 2019. We then narrowed down the choices to the top 5 and conducted a survey across all social media channels, which kicked off on Thursday, July 18, 2019. Survey results will be tallied and the winner and two runners-up will be announced no later than Thursday, July 25, 2019. 


Hey! We’ve adopted a new mascot for Your Austin Storage -- home to Ben White Mini StorageMopac Self Storageand Pond Springs Mini Storage -- and we need your help naming him!

He’s a cute little fella, isn’t he? Thanks to Sivon Pichoto (our owners’ cousin!) for creating him! Whether you’re new to the Lone Star State or are a native Texan, you probably know that the armadillo is one of our beloved state animals. 

It’s name means “little armored one,” and with its hard shell it has become symbolic of protection and boundaries. Adopting the armadillo as our mascot seems fitting for us as a storage unit facility whose goal it is to offer shelter to keep our customers’ belongings safe and secure. 

So, here are the details. We look forward to seeing your name suggestions!

What: The name can be anything. Be creative! A nod to Austin culture might be fun!

Who: Anyone can enter; you don’t need to be a current storage unit renter. 

How: There are 4 ways to submit your name suggestions:

  1. IN OFFICE: Fill out a form in the front office of the location you rent from. Forms are at the front desk.
