Small Storage Units

The smallest size range for storage units are going to be your most cost-efficient options. A storage unit in this category is about the size of a walk-in closet. It has some restrictions for items that can fit inside, so be sure to double check measurements before attempting to store large items, like mattresses and other furniture. Small storage units can be your go-to solution for seasonal storage, like winter clothes, summer equipment, or student storage. If you are a college student looking for storage to help with a move or transitioning semesters, reach out to our office with any questions you might have, and we can set you up with an affordable self storage space.

Medium Storage Units

When you need to store 2-3 rooms’ worth of items, a medium storage unit is your best bet without going overboard. These are large enough to fit your larger furniture pieces and even smaller vehicles, like bikes and jet skis. Always check with your storage facility if you are questioning if you are allowed to store certain items. A medium storage unit can help you tackle long-term storage with ease, giving you plenty of room to shuffle items in and out as you need them.

Large Storage Units

If you live in a home with 4 or more rooms and you need storage space for all of it, go big. Our large storage units are perfect for long-term storage, as well as helping you through a move. These can hold your furniture sets, beds, mattresses, and all your boxes.
