Common Uses for Small Storage Units

When thinking about storage units, most people picture a large space full of “stuff”.  And large units definitely have their uses — for example, as a place to store all those items that would go in an attic, if only you had an attic. Or a location to keep all those non-urgent items when you’re moving from one house to another. Keep in mind, though, that smaller storage units have as much value, and as many uses, as larger units, and are certainly less expensive. Sometimes it makes more sense to rent a small unit for extra space storage for one of the following reasons:

Seasonal Clothing & Items

Missouri weather comes in extremes. Sure, we get warm days in February and odd chills in mid-July, but for the most part we know the cold begins in the November and the heat starts after the rainy spring. Some of us have a wardrobe for each season.

Many of us have decorations for the different holiday seasons. If this sounds like you, then you know how difficult it can be to find space for all of your decorative, clothing, or other seasonal items. If you don’t have the space in your home for all four seasons, then a small unit might be right for you.


If you run a small startup company or even a large corporate office, then you probably experience serious growing pains from time to time. You may find that you need to use some equipment only part of the time. Most often, however, businesses young and old need space for filing and records.

As a business grows, these are the first items to get displaced by new hires, new workstations, and new equipment. And the issue only gets worse with the passing of time, until it may seem that you need an entirely separate office just to store things.

Storage units at Cox Climate Controlled Storage work great for both paper files and electronic storage; our climate-controlled environment insulates your records and electronics from the harsh weather conditions. We also have the room to store equipment, chairs, desks, etc. that are no longer in use but that you’re not quite ready to get rid of.
