    Anyone know the cost per month of renting a space say, 5x5? or a 10x15? Im going to be moving to Pennsylvania at the end of the month and the apartment i'm moving into has its storage located in the basement, so putting my 1000+ lb. toolbox there is out of the question. Do the larger units have outlets or lights? I might try to make a makeshift shop in one if it's reasonable. Thanks for any input.

    They start, around here at about $40 per month for a small one. I think 6x10 was about $47, and 10x10 was around $80. The size is very important. The spaces I'm speaking of had light, maybe an outlet, but no heat. A larger space might, but it wouldn't be worth working on a car in there. I'd rent a friends driveway first.

    yea, thats about the same prices for a storage unit around here too. the small ones are about 35, the bigger ones like 60-75 bucks

    theyre a fucking ripoff if u ask me, thats way too much money a month

    They just got back to me and a 5x5x10 stall is $44 a month, which isn’t great. I'm hoping I can find a farmer with a barn for less or figure out how to store a vehicle vertically =)

    Storage Bins are a vicious cycle, and I would suggest you start smoking before getting a storage bin. Those people get your shit, and hold it ransom.

    Un-told price increases, Bill descrepancies, The list goes on. Avoid that at all costs.

    My 10'x20' Cost me $89/Month. I have my CRX, 1 LS Block, 1 D16A1 Block, my old dash a blown tire and some other odd ball shit in there.

    The best thing about it... I dont have to travel a billion miles to go to my unit...
