Our top notch San Mateo Self Storage Units are 10 feet in height but most people don't like to stack items much higher than 8 feet. In our units stacking 8 feet is perfect as it leaves plenty of air flow at the top of the unit, which is an important feature. The following calculations are based on items being maximized in the unit and stacked to the full 8 feet.
