Top Reasons You Need a Locker Unit


When you’re looking for the right self storage unit, it can be easy to feel like Goldilocks. This one’s too big, and this other one is, well, really too big. If you only need to store a few things, a 5x5 locker unit can be just right. At our StorQuest locations in Jersey City, NJ, and Arlington, VA, these units are equivalent to the size of a regular closet, and people use them to store all sorts of things. Here are some of the best reasons to use locker units as part of your storage solution.

You’re a Student

If you’re living in a dorm room, locker units are the perfect storage solution when you head home in the summer. Use this space to store your mini-fridge, folding desk chair, decorative items, or rugs. Students can also use these smaller spaces to keep old assignments, binders, and textbooks in one place. Art student? Keep your supplies here when you’re not using them for class!

You Have a Big Outdoor Gear Collection

If you’re an outdoor addict with tons of gear – from boogie boards and scuba diving equipment to your rock climbing gear and fishing supplies – then a locker unit is perfect. On the way to your next adventure, you won’t have to run home after school or work to get your stuff. Just grab what you need at your unit and be on your way.

You Love to Decorate Seasonally

If you keep your home decor in tune with the seasons, then a locker unit should be your secret weapon. With all your decorations in one place, you won’t have to worry about digging through the garage or attic when it’s time to deck the halls. Use your locker unit to house all your statement decor items, whether that’s fall-inspired pillows and throws or holiday lights and tree ornaments.

You Run a Business Out of Your Home

Are you turning your side hustle into a full-blown business, or are you finding yourself with too much inventory and not enough space? Our 5x5 units are a simple solution for keeping your small business organized. The best part? If you outgrow it, it’s easy to move into a larger unit within the same facility!

A Unit for Every Situation

At StorQuest, we are proud to offer you self storage solutions no matter your circumstances. Whether you need a small locker unit or a larger garage-sized space, we have you covered. Look up the location nearest you and find the right fit.
