Packing up your storage unit can get tricky if you are not even sure what size storage unit will fit the items you need to store. Ellijay Storage has resources to help with the storage renting process, and we offer a variety of storage unit sizes. Read on for our storage size guide.

Small Storage Units

Small storage units are ideal sizes for clearing some extra belongings out of your house. Students rent them to store their dorm and apartment items in between semesters. Ellijay GA residents can rent a small storage with us to make more room in garages, basements, and closets. These storage units can fit:
  • Up to a full size mattress (for a 5x5)
  • Small dressers
  • Small desks
  • Chairs
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Holiday decorations
Our small storage units (drive up): 5x6, 6x6, 5x8, 5x10
Our small storage units (temperature control): 5x10

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units are a lot more versatile since they do not have a lot of sizing restrictions for common household items. These can store two or three bedrooms’ contents, including all your mattresses, no matter how large. Small businesses also take advantage of self storage to save on the costs of office rentals. Business owners can safely store inventory, files, and equipment. Medium storage units can also fit:
  • Appliances
  • Canoes, jet skis, kayaks, etc.
