Humans have needed extra storage dating back to ancient times. Fortunately, the storage industry has evolved to meet the timeless demand. Today, whether you need to store belongings, temporarily or for an extended period, you’ll have many options. You’ll be able to shop for a storage facility that offers the security features you want. You’ll be able to rent a storage unit that will protect your belongings from extreme heat, cold, and humidity. You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of sizes of storage units. Finally, you’ll be able to decide whether drive up storage units or indoor units are best suited for your needs. Read on to learn about the unique benefits of drive up storage units.

Drive Up Units Offer Quick Visits to the Storage Facility

One of the biggest perks of renting drive up storage units is convenience. You can often pull right up in front of your unit for quick retrieval or to quickly store belongings. You can also avoid the need for features like dollies or elevators. This can make a trip to the storage facility faster and more convenient.  

Drive Up Storage Units are the Only Option for Vehicle Storage

If you need to store a car, motorcycle, boat, camper, heavy equipment, or other types of vehicle or watercraft, drive up units are the only option. So, even if you don’t currently plan to store a vehicle, if there is any chance you may purchase a 4×4, jet ski, dirt bike, etc., drive up storage units are the way to go.

More Storage Space

Drive up units are the largest storage units at most storage facilities.  So when you need maximum space, you’ll want to forgo indoor units for an outdoor, drive up unit. Drive up units can hold cars, furniture, office and business equipment, and much more. In fact, a 10’ x 30’ storage unit can typically hold the entire contents of a house if you’re in between moves. 

Easier Access

Drive up units offer immediate, unrestricted access to your belongings. This makes them ideal for those who will be accessing their storage unit frequently. Sales reps, small businesses storing excess inventory, and others benefit from ground-level, immediate access to their belongings.

Drive Up Storage Unit May be More Cost Effective

Storage units that you access from outside may offer a better price per square foot than storage units located indoors. 

Drive Up Units Are Available in Multiple Sizes

Like storage units located indoors, drive up storage units are often available in multiple sizes, such as 10’ x 20’, 10’ x 25’, and 10’x 30’.
