Though some people interchange the terms “storage lockers” and “storage units,” they’re actually different offerings. Both are self storage spaces available at a storage facility, but storage lockers are significantly smaller, often have lower ceilings, and are typically accessed by rolling staircases.
WHAT IS A STORAGE LOCKER?
Storage lockers have a few distinct characteristics that differentiate them from standard self storage units.
Less Storage Space
Storage lockers are often smaller than 5×5, which is typically the smallest standard storage unit offered.
How tall are storage lockers? Unlike the eight-foot ceilings, storage lockers are usually three to five feet tall.
Rolling Stair Access
Storage lockers are often stacked on top of each other and are accessible by a rolling staircase.
STORAGE LOCKERS VS. STORAGE UNITS
When comparing storage lockers and storage units, the pros and cons of each are pretty simple:
Storage units offer more space and are more common at self storage facilities. Storage units are generally available in sizes ranging from 5×5 to 10×30, and eight-foot ceilings are standard. Because of this, storage units are also more expensive.
Storage lockers are significantly smaller and are typically available in large cities where space is more expensive and harder to come by. Because of this, storage lockers offer cost savings for those who don’t need all of the space that standard storage units provide.
STORAGE LOCKER SIZES
From 4 square feet up to 20 square feet, storage lockers come in several sizes to meet your self storage needs. Some common sizes include 2x2, 3x3, 3x4, 4x4, and 4x5.
