What Services Does Extra Space Cover?

Extra Space has roughly 1.3 million storage units across the country. Those units accommodate just about every type of storage need you would imagine, from business to personal, cars and boats, and more. Extra Space doesn’t offer full-service storage, but everything that falls into the self-service category is covered.

Extra Space self-storage offers you extended access hours (usually between 6am and 10pm), and what’s even more beneficial is that this storage service allows you to access your units on the weekends. But best of all, Extra Space has 24/7 access options at specific locations too. This is the ultimate in convenience and not something most self-service storage providers offer.

To reserve a unit, you can call up a rep or go the online route. What’s also nice about Extra Space is that you can do the entire process online, contact free. You can book a storage unit up to 14 days prior to moving in.

  • Go online to find a location near you

  • Choose a unit size

  • Enter your payment details

  • Receive your access code

It’s really very simple. Extra Space has an easy-to-follow sizing guide to help you decide which storage unit will best suit your needs.

Each self-storage unit is protected by state-of-the-art security systems (more on that below) and is clean and well-lit for convenience and security.

What’s more, Extra Space has an on-site manager to care for the upkeep and security of all its properties.

Extra Space Storage Unit Details

Extra Space provides a unit size guide to help direct consumers toward the appropriate storage unit for their needs. And there are a lot of unit sizes to choose from. In fact, Extra Space offers small storage lockers (2’x2’–4’x5’) with reduced height ceilings. These are less expensive than larger units and the ideal solution for budget-friendly storage of smaller items. Here are a few examples of what you can fit in an Extra Space storage unit:

5’x10’ unit

Contents of a small walk-in closet (e.g., dresser, medium boxes, sports equipment, garden tools)

10’x10’ unit

Contents of half a standard one-car garage (bedroom furniture, couches, table sets)

10’x20’ unit

Contents of a standard one-car garage (multi-bedroom homes, refrigerator, couches, washer/dryer)

10’x25’ unit

Larger than a single-car garage (3-bedroom house, oversized items like bedroom sets, appliances, entertainment center, large boxes)

RV Parking unit

Good for RVs, boats, large automobiles, trailers

How Much Does Extra Space Cost?

Pricing for storage units ranges depending on the size of the unit, features you want included, and location you are renting from. Here’s a look at some of the prices you could pay for a storage unit with Extra Space. Bear in mind though that prices can vary significantly from one location to the next:

3’x4’

$10

5’x5’

$50

10’x9’

$66

10’x15’

Extra Space also offers some free services like hand trucks, convenient loading bays, elevators, and WiFi.

Extra Space Rental and Leasing Options

Extra Space rental units are available on a month-to-month contract basis. You can sign a long- or short-term contract if you want, but you need only commit for a month at a time. Alternatively, Extra Space offers long-term storage plans that allow you to pay for a year’s storage in advance. You are only required to notify Extra Space verbally 2 days in advance before you can vacate your storage unit. If there are additional months still on your contract, you’ll get a prorated rate for your last month.
