Finding Storage in Los Angeles, CA
With more than 12 million inhabitants, Los Angeles is the second most populated city in the United States. The weather is almost always beautiful, the entertainment is amazing, and the food is even better. People flock to Los Angeles because it's the place where dreams come true—it's the birthplace and home of Hollywood, after all! But with this popularity comes a higher cost of living, which means there's not a lot of living space for you and your belongings.
Fortunately, Storage.com can help! If you're looking for some additional storage space, you can easily find and compare Los Angeles self storage facilities with Storage.com. You can even search by price, location, unit sizes, and special features, as well as reserve a unit directly on our website.
We understand the last thing you want to do is search through different websites for storage facilities in Los Angeles—or, worse, drive all around the city in the insane traffic just to get quotes from different locations. Storage.com eliminates that hassle for you! Our easy-to-use directory displays the different amenities of each storage unit and facilities closest to you. This helps you save time and money.
Picking the Right Unit Size
It can be overwhelming trying to find a Los Angeles storage unit size that fits your storage needs, especially if you aren't able to visualize how your items can fit into a particular size.
With small storage needs, most people opt for 5x5 or 5x10 units. These Los Angeles storage units are able to hold boxes, seasonal lawn equipment, and small furniture. With larger storage needs—such as moving everything out of your home while remodeling or relocating—you'll need something more along the lines of a 10x20 or 10x30 unit. These large units are also great for indoor vehicle storage.
If you need help determining a unit size, Storage.com has an interactive size guide to help you. We show common Los Angeles storage unit sizes—such as 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and 10x30—and illustrations of typical items placed in storage to help give you an idea of what can fit.

Storing Recreational Gear
Despite being known as a major metropolitan area, there's a lot of outdoor activities to do in Los Angeles. But many of these activities require additional equipment.
Whether you're into hitting the links at the Los Angeles Country Club or Wilshire Country Club, walking through Griffith Park, hiking through Topanga or Malibu Creek state parks, surfing, or even snowboarding, Los Angeles mini storage is perfect for storing your sporting gear and equipment.
Golf clubs, personal golf carts, boards, climbing gear—all of these things can be kept at a facility so they don't take up space in a closet or your garage. And if you find a facility on the way to or near your favorite outdoor spot, you can swing by and grab your things!
Los Angeles Vehicle Storage
For classic car lovers, boat or RV owners, or motorcycle enthusiasts in Los Angeles, driveway or garage space can be pretty limited. And, unfortunately, moving a classic car, boat, RV, or motorcycle to the street puts it at risk for damage or theft. If you need to free up some space in your driveway or garage and don't want to keep your vehicle on the street, Los Angeles vehicle storage can help.
Vehicle storage options in Los Angeles include varying levels of protection, including indoor, covered, and outdoor storage. Outdoor storage is cheaper than the other two storage options, however, it's less secure from weather-related damages. If you're interested in a specific level of protection for your vehicles, check with each facility offering vehicle storage to see what they have to offer.
You should also look for a Los Angeles storage facility with wide-drive aisles to make parking and pickup experiences quick and convenient.
Short-Term Storage for College Students
Students at UCLA, Loyola Marymount University, and USC use temporary Los Angeles mini storage while they're away from their dorms or residence halls on summer break. For out-of-state students, this is an especially good idea. Rather than dragging furniture and school belongings home for the summer, students can rent local short-term storage and keep everything in a unit close to campus. That way, when school starts up again in the fall, move-in day goes by without an issue.
Many facilities offer short-term rental agreements just for situations like this so you don't get roped into a long-term contract when all you need is a few months. Especially for the students that have a long trip home or those who accumulated new furniture that they can't take home without an expensive moving truck, a Los Angeles storage unit makes dorm moving much easier.
