Whether you’re storing just a few valuable items or the entire contents of your house, choosing the right size of unit for your needs is essential. Storage units and storage lockers are both options that can be used for the short term or long term.

What is the difference between storage lockers and storage units?

Lockers are smaller spaces and the size of a unit can vary, from just a handful of square feet to the size of a small apartment.


Lockers tend to be much smaller, usually under 5’ x 5’ or 25 square feet. They are located within a heated area, so you can have the peace of mind that sensitive documents and electronics won’t be subject to changes in temperature or humidity.

If you’re only storing a small collection of valuable items. This makes lockers ideal if you’re looking for smaller option at an affordable price.


A storage unit is a secure space usually anywhere from 25 square feet to the size of a small garage. These types of units are ideal for large pieces of furniture or seasonal recreational equipment. Depending on what you’re storing you might want to consider if you want an outdoor or indoor unit.

An outdoor unit can be very convenient as you can drive your vehicle or moving truck right up to your unit for easy access. An outdoor drive-up unit is also more cost effective when compared to climate-controlled units of the same size. Climate controlled units are kept at a consistent temperature. These heated units are a great option if you plan on storing any electronics or other items sensitive to temperature or humidity changes.
