What Size Do I Need?

At All American Storage San Mateo, we want you to rent only as much storage as you need, and easily transfer between sizes if your needs change. Our in-house storage experts will assist you in determining the appropriate size unit to fit your particular storage need and budget.

Sizes range from 2’ x 3’ (6 square feet) to 20’ x 30’ (600 square feet.) with a minimum ceiling height of 10 feet. A select few unit sizes have 14-foot ceilings convenient for storing long objects from ladders to surfboards. If the unit size listed below has an H after the size it has a 14’ ceiling. We have many sizes with roll-up garage doors and second floor carpeted units perfect for furniture

Below is a general guideline to help you determine what size is right for you. We have 83 different sizes ranging in cost from $27 to $868, and everything in between. Call us to determine your perfect fit.

Our top-notch San Mateo Self Storage Units are 10 feet in height but we recommend not stacking above 8 feet.  Thi is perfect as it leaves plenty of airflow at the top of the unit, which is an important feature. The following calculations are based on items being maximized in the unit and stacked to the full 8 feet.
