Below are the frequently asked questions about our storage units and lockers.

About the storage units

Shurgard offers storage unit sizes from 10 sq ft up to 300 sq ft.

All our storage units are approximately 10 feet high, except for the lockers which are approximately 3 feet high.

Shurgard offer a wide variety of storage units.

  • Lockers: about 3 feet high and range in surface area from 5 sq ft to 15 sq ft, ideal for storing small items for a few storage boxes.
  • All our other storage units: about 10 feet high and range in surface areas from 10 sq ft up to 300 sq ft.

You can also choose among the below access options.

  • Direct access: If you want to drive a vehicle directly to the door of your unit – making loading and unloading easy – choose direct access storage. You pay for the convenience as these units are more expensive.
  • Ground floor access: If you don’t want the bother of putting your things in a lift – perhaps they’re heavy or cumbersome – choose ground floor access storage.  
  • Upstairs access via lift: If you don’t mind using the lift, choose upstairs storage accessed via lift. These are slightly cheaper units and ideal if you don’t need to store heavy or large items.  
  • Value unit: If you’re looking for a cheaper unit and don’t mind it being an irregular shape, perhaps with a sloping roof, choose a value unit.
