A 5’x5’ means the storage locker is 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep and, depending on the facility, will be up to 8 feet high. A 5’x5’ storage unit is 200 cubic feet in total volume. This would be the equivalent of the size of an en-suite bathroom with a sink and toilet. Small heated storage units can help in big ways.

They are ideal for:

  • Seasonal decorations
  • Personal files such as tax returns and important papers
  • Business use
  • Sports gear
  • Outdoor and camping equipment
  • A loved one’s special items you can’t part with
  • Items you want to keep after downsizing or deep cleaning your home

Small storage units are popular with business owners that do not want to spend the high price on storing files in the office or have items they need to have security in a storage locker, rather than in their garage. A small heated 5×5 could be the perfect cheap self-storage solution for a business owner needing more space and becomes a part of their disaster recovery plan.

If you’re looking for just the right amount of additional storage space and aren’t looking to store large items, a 5’x5’ storage locker is a cost-effective and convenient solution.

What to consider when looking for a small 5×5 Self Storage unit

Not at all self-storage facilities operate the same. To get the most of what you’re paying for, make sure to inquire about the following:

  • Security – confirm there is a fenced yard, an access system, secured gate, security cameras.
  • Cleanliness – determine if the units are cleaned before a new self-storage customer moves in.
  • Affordable– shop around and find out if you are charged monthly or every 4 weeks as you could be paying more altogether. Confirm if insurance is mandatory, if there are administrative fees, and ask how often rental increases occur.
  • Reviews – look at Google, FB, YELP, YP and BBB to see what other customers are saying about the facility. It will give you a good idea if that is where you want to store your valuables.

Have a few items that you need to keep secure but have no room in your house, apartment, or condo? A small 5×5 heated storage unit is an affordable solution for you.
