Our Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

You don’t need to be storing a whole house to have self storage needs. Small storage units have plenty of space to tuck away seasonal decorations and give you back space in your attic or garage. At about the size of a walk-in closet, these storage units can fit approximately the contents of one bedroom. They are ideal for moving out of an apartment or condo, but any size mattress larger than a full will need a larger storage unit.

Our drive-up storage units assure you’ll be able to unload all your furniture easily.

Our small storage units (drive up): 5×5, 5×10, 5×15¬†

Medium Storage Units

If small storage units can store about one bedroom’s furniture, a medium storage unit can fit about two or three. Bigger mattresses, dressers, and desks will fit in this size, along with the rest of your boxes and clothes. Business owners can store equipment and inventory with us to save on the costs of renting office space. Leases are month-by-month and offer a lot of flexibility.¬†

Our medium storage units (drive up): 10×10, 10×15

Large Storage Units

Large storage units are a popular size if you are moving houses. Easily accessible for your vehicle drive up and unload your items, these units will cover everything from bookcases to patio furniture. You should also have plenty of room to navigate through your belongings to find what you need. Our largest storage units can also hold vehicles, boats, and trailers.

Our large storage units (drive up): 10×20, 10×30, 30×15
