Small Storage Units: 5×5 & 5×10

  • A small storage unit offers enough room for a few pieces of furniture or boxes. If you are looking to store the contents of a dorm or one bedroom, these sizes are about that of a walk-in closet. These storage spaces are great for seasonal needs as well! Store boxes of clothing or your inventory for the busy season. You can make room in your garage or basement with ease by renting a nearby storage unit. Whether storing your business needs or your household belongings StorTropolis Self-Storage is ready to help.
Be aware that small storage units most likely cannot fit your largest pieces of furniture. They can hold up to a full-size mattress comfortably. Always check measurements before you attempt to store!

Medium Storage Units: 10×10 & 10×15

  • Offering a little more space, medium storage units are suitable for 1 to 3 bedrooms at around 100 square feet. There is room to store a mattress, bed frame, even a dresser or two in a medium storage unit. You do not have many sizing restrictions, like with the small sizes, so you can create a versatile storage space. Business and residential storage—we can do it all.

Large Storage Units: 10×20 & 10×30

  • Store the whole house, all your furniture, and seasonal items in a large storage unit! There is plenty of room to keep your most prized possessions safe while you move or stage the house or when the business is growing faster then your office space can keep up.
