Fords History

Fords has gone by a number of names through the years, including Sling Taile (for a creek that flowed through the area) and Fords Corner, named after the family that owned property well into the 20th century, including an inn reputed to be a staging area during the American Revolution for Patriots to bother the British troops. 

The suburb was then known as Sand Hills during the 18th and 19th centuries for the clay pits that furnished the raw materials for clay manufacturing that was a main source of employment. Eventually, the name returned to Fords.

Why Choose Storage Post

If you live in Woodbridge Township, including Fords, NJ, you can only have a yard or garage sale up to three times per year — and that includes a rescheduled one due to rain. If you have to postpone and you’re at your maximum, a short-term self-storage unit can save space in your garage. 

Storage Post welcomes both month-to-month and long-term storage customers, so don’t risk the potential $500 fine for holding too many garage sales. Wait until spring, and we’ll safeguard your possessions. 

Anyone who has ever spent time straightening their hair, only to have it poof up as soon as the humidity touches it understands the effects of dampness. Not only is it bad for your hairstyle, but humidity and dampness cause trouble for delicate fabrics, wood, photos or books. 

One option is a climate-controlled self-storage unit, where temperatures remain between 55°F and 78°F year-round, and constant air circulation discourages mildew from growing.
