10x10 storage unit

A 10×10 storage unit can help you store items ranging from recreational vehicles to furniture and everything in between. They are fantastic for families who don’t have much stuff to store, need to free up some space in their home or store appliances during a renovation. Whether you’re looking to store unused furniture, or backup supplies for your house, having a 10×10 storage unit is a fantastic way to accommodate all sorts of situations, such as…

Taking a Break from a Hobby

Sometimes, hobbies need to take a back seat for an extended period. During these times, hobby supplies can feel very cluttered and overwhelming because a lot of times, you will not have time to practice your hobby. However, that doesn’t mean you have to give it up entirely and sell all your supplies! Hobby supplies can be expensive, and if you plan on using them again, it’s best not to get rid of them.

Having a storage unit handy is a fantastic way to store everything when you’re too busy to practice your hobby. The following are types of hobbies you can store away in a storage unit when you’re not using them:


  •       Knitting supplies
  •       Painting supplies
  •       Tools
  •       Instruments (non-wood!)
  •       Collections
  •       Exercise equipment
  •       Summer sports equipment
  •       Winter sports equipment

Keeping these items in your home when you’re not actively using them can be overwhelming and frustrating. Having a storage unit is a fantastic way to keep these items safe without getting rid of them. 

Use a 10×10 Storage Unit to Hold Backup Appliances.

When you upgrade your appliances or move homes, getting rid of your old appliances can be tempting. However, sometimes it would be ideal to hang on to these old appliances because when one of your appliances goes out, it can leave you and your family in a troublesome situation. Keeping backup appliances is a fantastic way to avoid bad situations while looking for new appliances in a situation where you’re planning to stop working.

You can also sell them! However, keeping them in your garage or home until you find a buyer isn’t ideal, so therefore a storage unit will be a perfect solution. 

Five Reasons to Use Drive Up Storage

Store Old Furniture

A 10×10 storage unit is a fantastic area to store old furniture. However, selling your old furniture is not always the best idea, especially if you have kids in the home who will grow up and move out. So, when you buy a new couch or a new table, it might be ideal to keep your old furniture. 

The following are types of furniture that you can store in a 10×10 storage unit.


Couches you don’t use anymore are easily stored in a 10×10 storage unit. So while you could invest in a larger unit, a 10×10 storage unit will store most couches.

Bed Frames

Unused beds or futons can fit in a 10×10 storage unit. You might need these old beds if you have certain occasions where you have more family or friends over than usual.

Tables & Shelves

Old dining room tables and chairs can be stored away for future use. However, you could host several events where you might need additional tables and chairs.

Shelving units can be stored in a storage unit. However, shelves can be handy in all situations, and keeping a few extra shelves could be beneficial.

Store a Recreational Vehicle

Whether you have a recreational vehicle that you can’t use during certain months – such as a motorcycle, ATV, or dirt bike, or you’re not ready to part with the vehicle that you don’t use that often, a 10×10 storage unit can store a vehicle that’s not in use. 


A storage unit is a great way to keep in peak condition and avoid weather damage. However, if you want a storage unit that will store more than just a single vehicle, you need to invest in a larger size. Contact us today to get your storage unit.
