Small Storage Units

So do you need a small storage unit? These are the perfect amount of space for college students to store dorm contents so you do not have to bring all your belongings home with you. You can also use them to store the miscellaneous items in your house that you still want to keep but do not necessarily need around you 24/7. For you, that might be seasonal clothing or holiday decorations. Small storage units can hold a few pieces of larger furniture with numerous boxes of small items. Although they do have their restricitons; a 5×5 storage unit is the smallest offered and can hold only up to a full size mattress. Any size larger will need a bigger storage unit.

Medium Storage Units

If you definitely know you need more space than a small, make sure you do not overlook medium storage units. These have plenty of space for apartment and condo items and can fit two or three rooms’ worth of furniture, like dressers and desks. Potential use does not stop at residential. Self storage can also be helpful for business owners who need a place to store inventory but do not have an office or physical location. We also have month-by-month leasing for ultimate flexibility. 

Large Storage Units

Large storage units are about the size of a one-car garage and only get bigger from there. If you are moving houses, these can hold all your furniture easily. While medium storage units can hold only a few rooms’ items, large storage units can fit closer to four to six. Your appliances, furniture sets, and bed frames will remain safe and intact while you make the move. You can also leave your vehicle, small trailer, or boat in our large storage units.
