Whether you need some extra room in your home or you’re looking for space to store extra furniture, The Lock Up Self Storage can help. We offer a variety of storage unit sizes with competitive pricing to accommodate all your needs. To help you decide if a 7.5' x 10' self storage unit is your best option for renting, here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.
A 7.5' x 10' self storage unit is 7.5 feet wide by 10 feet long, resulting in 75 square feet of usable floor storage space. When you take the ceiling height into consideration, your storage capacity increases as vertical storage is easy to utilize by stacking moving boxes, manipulating furniture, or bringing in your own shelving unit. If you’re interested in seeing a 7.5' x 10' self storage unit in person, contact one of the representatives at The Lock Up Self Storage to set up a facility tour.
All of our units at The Lock Up Self Storage are climate controlled, including our 7.5' x 10' storage options. Climate control is essential when you want to protect your valuables as it keeps things in a controlled environment so that condensation, mold, mildew, and pests are kept at a minimum. We keep our units’ temperature between 58 - 82°F depending on the season and the temperature outside. Humidity levels are also controlled for an optimal environment.
Roughly one and a half rooms worth of furniture can fit inside a 7.5' x 10' self storage unit when packed correctly. This will depend on individual dimensions of items and the size of the rooms in question, but you can expect storage space to accommodate a sofa, chairs, a desk, file cabinets or bookshelves, and moving boxes.
A 7.5' x 10' self storage unit should be able to store everything in a one-bedroom apartment. Again, this will depend on the size of your apartment and how many belongings you have. To make sure that you’re renting the correct size unit, we recommend measuring all of your items to see if they will fit inside the space. Remember, you can increase your storage capacity when you utilize vertical space, but you don’t want to overpack your unit as it can lead to long-term damages.
While all motorcycles are different sizes, most will fit in a 7.5' x 10' self storage unit. If you plan to store other items with your motorcycle, it may be beneficial to opt for a 10’ x 10’ storage unit instead. To make sure that you avoid damaging your vehicle or surrounding items, always measure the dimensions ahead of time. If you plan to store your motorcycle at The Lock Up Self Storage, please make sure that it’s registered and licensed prior to doing so.

When it comes to packing a moving truck for your 7.5' x 10' self storage unit, you first need to decide on your unit’s general floorplan. We recommend putting large or heavy furniture in the back of your storage unit and smaller items that you may need to access throughout the year near the front. Then, pack your moving truck in reverse order so that when you unload it, you’ll have a clear pathway through your unit. The Lock Up Self Storage offers free move-in trucks for new renters to help with your transition.
