Small Storage Units 

Standing at the size of a walk-in closet, small storage units have just enough space for a few large pieces of furniture and smaller boxes on top. Think of it as being able to store approximately the contents of an average-sized bedroom. Commonly used for clearing extra space in your home and storing seasonal items, these can actually fit quite a few objects, including:

  • Holiday decorations, Christmas tree
  • Shed tools, equipment
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Sports equipment
  • Mattress
  • Desk
  • Dresser
  • Dorm furniture

Our small storage units (temperature control): 5×10

Our small storage units (drive up): 5×10

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units offer a little more room. These hold about two or three bedrooms’ furniture. Great for storing as you move out of your apartment or condo, these can hold your big items:

  • Washery/dryer
  • Refrigerator
  • Piano
  • Multiple mattresses
  • Motorcycle and bicycles
  • Water sports vehicles (jet ski, kayak, canoe, etc.)
  • Small trailer

Business owners may choose to use self storage in lieu of office space. It is a more affordable option, and Brooks Mini Storage can keep your inventory and equipment safe here, so you do not have to take up valuable storage space in your own home.

  • Car
