Our Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Most people have at least a few items that they only need on occasion. Seasonal clothes, holiday decorations, and sporting equipment are just a few examples. Rather than letting these items take up valuable space in your home storage space (closets, garage, basement, etc.), you can store them in a small storage unit. These units are typically the size of a walk-in closet, which means they can hold roughly the contents of one room. And because they’re affordable and versatile, small storage units can also be used to store work or vacation items. Just be sure to check the measurements of any objects before you try to store larger-scale ones, such as furniture or appliances.

Medium Storage Units

A medium storage unit from 4 Storage is the perfect solution for storing a load of larger items that doesn’t quite fit in a small storage unit. With enough space to accommodate the contents of 2-3 rooms, our medium storage units can fit couches, desks, chairs, and more. And because we offer easy access to your belongings, you can rest assured knowing that you can easily get to your things when you need them. Our drive-up storage units make loading and unloading even easier! Plus, our units are always clean and well-maintained, so you can be sure that your belongings are safe and secure no matter how long you are storing with us.
