The Lock Up Self Storage is home to over 40 premium self storage facilities conveniently located in eight states across the U.S. We have a variety of sizes for all of your needs, including our easily accessible 5' x 5' self storage units. If you need to store seasonal décor, unused sports equipment, or are just trying to free up some extra space, a 5' x 5' unit is the perfect solution.
These storage units measure 5 feet wide by 5 feet long, which gives you a total of 25 square feet for accessible storage. This is similar in size to a small walk-in closet and can accommodate a variety of contents. With ceiling heights of roughly 8 feet, your cubic storage space substantially increases opportunities for vertical storage.
Climate controlled storage is when the storage unit is kept in a controlled environment. This means that both the humidity levels and temperature are kept constant to better control moisture levels and extreme temperatures. Many traditional units have neither temperature nor humidity control, which increases the risk of damage to items stored for long periods of time.
In a 5' x 5' self storage unit, you'll be able to fit several small to medium size boxes, business records, and seasonal items. You may also be able to fit small bookcases, suitcases, sporting equipment, or even a few chairs. If what you need to store can fit in a small closet, it will fit in a 5' x 5' storage unit.
You can store about five to eight boxes comfortably in a 5' x 5' self storage unit. This number depends on the size of your boxes and can substantially increase if you take advantage of the vertical storage. If you are going to stack your boxes, just make sure that you keep the heaviest ones on the bottom and the lightest on the top to avoid damages.
A king size mattress is about 76' wide by 80' long, making it slightly too large to store in a 5' x 5' self storage unit. To avoid damaging your mattress, we suggest utilizing a 5' x 10' unit or a 7.5' x 10' self storage unit for more room.
Due to the dimensions, most average size motorcycles will not fit in a 5' x 5' storage unit. While bicycles are often stored in this size unit, motorcycles require more space and cannot be stored vertically. If you need to store your motorcycle, we recommend a larger unit such as a 10' x 10' for optimal space. If you do plan to store your motorcycle, make sure that you prepare it properly and that you're able to show registration and insurance coverage for the duration of your storage needs.
In most cities, the 5' x 5' self storage unit is our smallest available unit. There may be a few locations that offer 4' x 5' self storage units, but this is not standard. To learn more about sizing options in your city, call us today.
