5-10 Boxes Plus The Tree

Small storage units, 5×5, 5×10, etc., are roughly the size of closets. This is ideal if your decorations are on the light side.

Decor for Indoors & Outdoors

If your decorating has expanded year after year, the middle of the road storage unit would be great. Anything from 76 – 150 square feet will hold all your items.

Lighting Up The Neighborhood

If your outdoor display is a popular display throughout the neighborhood, our large self storage options are best. Keep all the motorized yard ornaments in working order for next year with a storage unit this year.
