Renting Self Storage
Unit sizes vary by each Devon Self Storage facility. However, our sizes generally range from 5’ x 5’ units to spaces with over 1,000 square footage. We also offer vehicle parking spaces for boats, RVs, and cars. Unit sizes and types vary by location.
The unit size you need depends on how many belongings you plan to store, how big those belongings are, and how long you plan to store them. Contact your local Devon Self Storage facility for help choosing a unit.
Our standard unit height is 8 feet tall, with a door clearance typically four inches smaller than the size of the unit dimensions both horizontally and vertically. Measurements may vary by location.
You have several options to rent or reserve a storage unit. Find a Devon Self Storage facility near you, and select the unit that fits your needs. If you rent online, you can select “Rent Now” or “Reserve,” then follow the rental or reservation steps. You can also call our team or visit the facility in person.
Many of our facilities offer climate-controlled storage units. When you choose climate control, your unit will maintain a consistent storage environment year-round. Help shield electronics, furniture, photos, and more from damage from extreme temperatures.

You can rent any Devon Self Storage unit on a month-to-month basis. Your rent is due on the first of the month. If your lease begins mid-month, we’ll prorate your rent at move-in.
Your rent varies based on the location of your Devon Self Storage facility, the unit size you choose, and how long to plan to lease it. Contact your nearest Devon facility or look at your facility’s online unit prices.
We accept all major forms of payment including cash, check, and credit card. For convenience, you can sign up for automatic credit card payment, or pay online without having to make a trip to the facility.
Rent is due at the end of the first business day of each month. Late fees differ by location and state due to varying laws. Please refer to your original lease agreement, or chat with your local Devon team for more information on any applicable fees.
We request a written notice, at least 3 days in advance, to schedule a move-out. Please provide written notice or contact your facility directly to sign an intent to vacate. Talk to your facility, and they’ll help you through the process.
