Why Opt for Large Storage Units?

Got too many items and not enough space? Consider big storage units. They offer a host of benefits, making them the perfect solution for a wide array of storage needs.

One of the biggest perks of large storage units is, well, they're big. They offer ample space for storing oversized items like furniture and appliances. Whether you're moving, decluttering, or looking to store items during a home remodel, our large storage space for rent provides the perfect solution.

But it's not just individuals who can benefit. Businesses can also take advantage of our large storage for rent.

With Store Space, you can choose from a wide range of clean, useful, and competitively priced large self-storage units to meet your specific needs. 

How Big is a Large Storage Unit?

Large storage units usually start around 150 sq. ft. and go up in size from there. The most popular size of large storage units is 10x20, or 200 sq. ft. of floor space, with 9-ft. ceilings. To put that in perspective, a 10x20 is approximately the size of a one-car garage. Some facilities have much larger units, which can be used for storing the contents of large multi-room houses, or as ad hoc warehouse space.

Climate Control for Your Precious Belongings

Many Store Space facilities feature climate-controlled storage units, even in the largest storage unit sizes. Air is circulated around these units to regulate the temperature and relative humidity year-round. Extreme temperature fluctuations and moisture can cause irreversible damage to sensitive items, such as furniture, antiques, electronics, and so on.

By choosing climate-controlled storage at Store Space, your delicate items are housed in a controlled environment designed to guard against damage caused by temperature and moisture fluctuations.

Drive-Up Storage for Added Convenience

Another option for large storage units at many Store Space locations is drive-up storage. With easy street access and wide driveways, it’s easy to pull your car or truck up to your drive-up unit, roll up the door and load or unload. Larger drive-up storage units are especially popular with contractors and businesses who need frequent access to stored equipment and other items.

Bonus: Some facilities offer climate-controlled drive-up storage units. How cool is that?
