Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

  • Why would you rent a small storage unit? Our smaller-scale storage is perfect if you need only  about a walk-in closet’s worth of space. This could hold your seasonal items, assist with a move to a new apartment, or act as quick temporary storage. Not all of your storage projects require a ton of space, and with Summit Self Storage, you will never have to pay for more space than you need. 

Medium Storage Units

  • Anything more than a room’s worth of items will need a storage unit in one of our larger categories. Our medium-sized options can handle 2-3 rooms’ contents. This can include a few mattresses (smaller storage units might not be able to accommodate queen- or king-sized mattresses), dressers, large boxes and bins, and other miscellaneous objects.

Large Storage Units

  • Are you a business in need of a decent amount of ongoing inventory space? How about a homeowner needing enough storage to support your family’s move, but only for a month or two? We have plenty of options for you to choose from, and our month-by-month leasing gives you the flexibility you need to stay in your budget.
