Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

If you don’t have too many belongings and are looking for an inexpensive storage option, small units are ideal. They can hold items that take up about the same amount of space as a mattress and is comparable to the size of a walk-in closet. These units come in handy when needing extra room for seasonal clothing or decorations,  and also provide support for larger areas such as closets or garages that might be filling up quickly.

Medium Storage Units

If you seem to have more stuff than will fit in our small units, take a look at our medium size storage units. These can hold the contents of 2-3 rooms, including multiple mattresses and large pieces of furniture. It’s always best to double check that your larger items will fit inside the unit before you rent it. You can use a medium storage unit as an ongoing solution for storing things you don’t use often, so your home stays neat and tidy.

Large Storage Units

If you’re wondering why somebody would need to lease a large storage space, here are some reasons: Homeowners and Renters often have too much stuff to fit in their homes or apartments, so they use these units as overflow storage. Business owners sometimes use them as well, since it’s much more affordable than renting an entire warehouse. At our  Storage facility, we have plenty of room for any customer’s needs.
