Storage Units with Drive-Up Access

At Extra Space Storage, you’ll find a variety of storage units that can accommodate a wide range of needs. If you’re looking for the most convenient storage solution, consider a drive-up storage unit!

What Is Drive-Up Access?

Drive-up access means your storage unit is a garage-like storage space that allows you to pull a vehicle up next to or into your space to unload and load your belongings. Most drive-up units at Extra Space Storage locations are housed in rows of outdoor buildings with wide-drive aisles, but some locations may have drive-up access units inside a drive-through building, providing additional convenience and protection from the elements.

What Are Common Reasons for Using Drive-Up Access?

Whether you’re moving, storing a vehicle, or using commercial storage, drive-up access is one of the best storage features available at Extra Space Storage! Because you can pull a vehicle right up to your unit, it makes moving large, heavy items—like furniture or equipment—in and out of your unit much easier.

Using Self Storage for Moving

A drive-up unit is highly recommended for anyone who’s moving, but especially for those who need a safe place to store belongings during a long transition between homes. The convenience of this garage-like unit allows you to move heavy furniture, appliances, and boxes to and from your vehicle without the concern of stairs, tight hallways, or elevators. And it makes quick pick-ups and drop-offs easy since you don’t have to enter a building.

Business Storage

Drive-up self storage gives small business owners an easily accessible option for storing commercial inventory, supplies, and even some equipment. Instead of trying to operate your business out of your home or a crowded office space, you can utilize drive-up units to quickly pick up and drop off the things you need for your business.

Vehicle Storage

Some Extra Space Storage facilities will allow drive-up access units to be used for indoor vehicle storage. This is a great option for those living in apartments without parking, active military who need safe storage for person vehicles during deployment, saving family cars for children, storing a business van or truck, or protecting fair-weather vehicles during the winter months. Be sure to check with the facility manager to see if drive-up vehicle storage is allowed and which unit sizes can accommodate your vehicle before renting.
