Small Storage Units

The smallest storage unit (5×5) is approximately the size of a closet. You can fit one to two large pieces of furniture (dresser, up to a full-size mattress, etc.) with a few smaller items, like small- or medium-sized boxes. Bigger storage units in the small range can better store most of the contents of an average bedroom. Users tend to rent small storage units for the purpose of clearing a little extra space in their houses. Perhaps the Christmas season has come and gone and you just do not want to look at those tangled lights any longer. Small storage units are the perfect size for those seasonal pieces that spend more time packed away than shown off. Additionally, small storage units can serve as an extension of your garage or shed. Give that spot to the tools you regularly use, and tuck away your others to create a clean work space.

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units can store two to three bedroom’s worth of furniture and clothing. Perfect for keeping your apartment or condo items safe as you move, these are about the size of a one-car garage. Kitchen appliances, sofas, washers and dryers, and desks will all fit with space for your other boxes. You may also be able to store your smaller vehicles or sports equipment. And self storage is for businesses, too! Medium storage units provide a great space to stash inventory and equipment. Save money by renting a storage unit instead of office space, and enjoy the flexibility of month-by-month leases.

Large Storage Units

Large storage units accommodate the rest of your household items. You likely won’t be able to move your belongings from one house directly to another in a move. Our self storage facilities can keep them safe until you are settled and ready to unpack. These fit couches, patio furniture, your largest mattresses, pretty much the big items that will not fit in your car. Large storage units can comfortably hold vehicles as well. Cars, boats and jet skis do not have to take up space around your house. Keep your most prized possessions from having to weather storms.
