What Size Storage Room Do I Need?

Our grid of storage unit rooms below illustrates typical uses. Please use only as a guide because how you pack and unload, along with the unique nature of the shape of your items, will vary. When you meet us at one of our Madison mini storage facilities, we can open a couple of storage locker sizes so you can physically see the space and visualize your items fitting into that storage room space.
We do have some larger door width and height options in both unheated and climate control noted at the bottom of this page.
 
Size Does Matter:

Full Height Storage Unit — Self Storage in Madison, WI
 

Ours Are Full-Height Storage Units

No need to duck ... we have no short ceilings with our mini storage rooms! Many units in the market are in renovated buildings and are shorter in ceiling height. Our drive-up, non-heated unit options are 8-14'' tall and climate-controlled options units are 10-12'' tall. So overall, we provide more cubic volume than many other storage rooms to rent.
