20 x 10 Garage in San Jose, California

"Janki’s space was perfect for my vehicle and she was awesome to meet. I left my car with boxes stored inside for 90 days and everything was safe and sound. Definitely would recommend Janki’s space and will likely use it again next summer (if it’s available!)"

"Ben is the best! His space is secure & it's always super easy to make arrangements for access -- he responds immediately to communications and is always accessible. Also, he's a certified ASE technician, so he can provide valuable advice & assistance with any car question you might have. He even provided a trickle charge to keep my battery sound. And last -- but by no means least -- he's a super nice guy and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Ben!"

Types of Storage

Renting a residential garage in San Jose can provide tenants with a secure, off-street storage solution that is often more affordable than traditional commercial storage. Additionally, outdoor options like driveways, parking lots, and unpaved lots can offer the advantage of greater access, while interior units offer the benefit of climate-control for items sensitive to temperature or humidity changes. For further convenience, peer-to-peer rental marketplaces can connect tenants with property owners in their area.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When looking for a garage to rent in San Jose, there are several factors to consider. These include:

  • The size of the space – make sure the garage is large enough to accommodate all of your items or vehicles.
  • The security of the space – ensure the garage is secure and has adequate lighting.
  • The location – choose a garage that is conveniently located near where you live or work.
  • The amenities – check to see if the garage offers any additional features such as covered parking or access to electrical outlets.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a private garage in San Jose, California for storage or parking, there are several climate and weather considerations to take into account. San Jose has an overall mild climate. The average high temperature in summer is 75.5°F, and the average low temperature in winter is 42.3°F. While most private garages are not climate-controlled, they can still offer protection from the elements. It is important to protect your possessions from dust, moisture, and temperature variations. Depending on the items you are storing, you may want to invest in a breathable cover, desiccant, and/or temperature monitor. While commercial garages may offer climate control, some residential garages may also offer this option, so check with your landlord or property manager. Generally, vehicles are safe in a non-climate-controlled garage, as they do not require a controlled environment.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor garages spaces in San Jose is a great place to start.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces.

We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).

If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.
