Benefits of Drive-Up Self Storage

St. Louis Self-Storage Drive-Through Access

Drive up self storage offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Quick and easy access: One thing that often deters people from using self-storage is the fact that they have to carry boxes from their car or truck to the storage unit. At EZ Storage, we’ve eliminated that problem by building drive-through access into our buildings, so that you can pull right up to your storage unit and start unloading. All EZ Storage locations offer the benefit of drive-up units.
  • Affordability: Drive-up storage units typically cost less than indoor climate-controlled units while offering more overall storage space, making them a perfect solution for individuals looking to save a few dollars while keeping their items safe and secure.

Drive-Up Storage FAQ’s

Still have questions? We’ve brought together answers to some frequently asked questions about drive up self storage below.

What is drive up self storage? 

Drive-up self storage typically means your storage unit is located in an outdoor facility or a large garage-like space that provides enough space for your vehicle to drive up directly next to or in front of your storage unit. 

Can you store a car in a drive-up storage unit?

Yes. Depending on the location, you should be able to find a drive-up storage unit large enough to fit a variety of vehicles, from cars to trucks and even commercial vans. 

Does climate-controlled drive-up storage exist?
