Small Storage Units

The smallest storage unit (5×5) stands at about the size of a small closet. This is a good option for those looking to store only a few large items and some small- or medium-sized boxes. Bigger storage units in the small range can store more of the larger pieces of furniture in a bedroom, such as mattresses, desks, and dressers. You may also be interested in freeing up some space in your garage. These storage units fit items like bicycles, motorcycles, and golf clubs. And if you need a place to store a Christmas tree, users commonly rent small storage units for holding holiday decorations and other season pieces. You can come pick them up again when you’re ready to decorate or are just feeling festive.

Medium Storage Units

At about the size of a large walk-in closet or a one-car garage, medium storage units can hold the contents of two or three bedrooms. This includes mattresses, kitchen appliances, a piano, dining room sets, etc. They are perfect for those moving out of an apartment or condo. Medium storage units also provide extra space for businesses that need a place to hold some of their inventory or equipment. Self storage is not just for residential use!

Large Storage Units

Many people use large storage units to hold the contents of their house as they move. Couches, mattresses, patio equipment, and outdoor furniture will fit these storage units, as well as the rest of the large boxes you have. And when winter rolls around, rent a large storage unit to house your vehicle or small boat and keep it safe from the elements. You will have plenty of room for all your belongings here, even those that are not easily boxed up.
