Student Storage Solutions in Coastal South Carolina

Extra Room Self Storage has four different locations in Moncks Corner, Myrtle Beach, North Charleston, and Pawleys Island, each offering a wide selection of storage units in an array of sizes to suit every need and budget. The average contents of a student dorm room typically consist of a bed, desk, chair, shelving unit, television, small appliances, and a few boxes of personal items, all of which should fit neatly into one of our 5-foot-by-10-foot (50 square feet) units. Those requiring additional storage space or wanting to defray some of the cost by sharing the space with a roommate may need to upgrade to a 10-foot-by-10-foot (100 square feet) storage unit, which is large enough to house the contents of a standard one-bedroom apartment. Storage types include:

Several unpacked carton boxes with office supplies, laptop, papers, calculator and green plant in flowerpot on top of packages

  • Indoor self-storage – This is the most affordable option, where individual units are housed in a dedicated storage facility, and items are kept secure, warm, and dry. Units are locked with a keypad or your own padlock.
  • Climate-controlled storage – Ideal for long-term storage or delicate items such as antiques or sensitive electronics, and the temperature inside the units may range between 60 and 85 degrees, depending on the season.
  • Outdoor or drive-up storage – Drive-up storage units are easily accessible from the outside and make it easy to load and unload items that you may need frequently.


We also carry a wide variety of moving and packing supplies in our stores to make your storage process even smoother and hassle-free!
