Business Storage FAQs

You've got questions, we've got answers.


It's not uncommon for you to need some extra storage space when running your business. With all the equipment, inventory and more to manage, having a dedicated storage space for your business can help alleviate some stress and keep you and your company organized.

Business & Commercial Storage Basics

Our commercial storage units are cost-efficient for businesses small and large, and come with a flexible, month-to-month contract. In addition to freeing up space around your office or home. there are a few other benefits for using a self storage space for your small business:

  • Reduced costs. Don't spend extra money on commercial real estate space to store your things. For a fraction of that cost, rely on our business solutions to fulfill your storage needs.
  • Flexibility. Need to change your unit's size or location? As mentioned, our month-to-month rental terms allows you to stay nimble if your business storage needs change.
  • Save time. With a variety of outdoor drive-up units and convenient access hours, we make it easy to get in, get out and get on with your day.

The best thing about choosing Public Storage is that we offer a variety of sizes depending on your business storage needs. Our handy size guide can help you determine the right amount of space.

If you're just looking to store small boxes or the contents of about one room, 5x5 storage space would fit your needs well. On the flip side, if you're a well-established business with a lot of inventory, a 10x15 storage space may be a better fit. Choose a 10x10 unit to meet in the middle for a medium-sized storage space.

As with all our spaces, check your rental agreement on the types of things that can be stored.

Depending on your storage space and what you're using it for, we offer different amenities and features that will help you get the most out of your storage space.

  • Convenient access hours - Most locations offer access seven days a week. You can check the access hours on our website, with some locations offering longer hours than others.
  • Drive-up access - For frequent visitors of your storage unit, a drive-up unit makes things even more convenient.
  • Climate controlled storage - If you want a unit you can visit more comfortably, climate controlled storage takes the edge off of the weather outside.
  • Gate keypad and app access - Public Storage offers electronic keypad access at the gates, elevators and other entry points. You use your own lock on your unit and have a unique gate code so you can store your business assets worry-free. Plus, you can get in and out of your space even easier by using your phone to open entry points.
