Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

A 5×5 storage unit is not very big, but it can hold more than you think. If you pack your smaller items in a stackable way (like boxes or bins), they will better fill the space around the large furniture. Assume you can fit approximately the contents of your bedroom. Some common items for small storage units include:

  • Up to a full size mattress
  • Desk
  • Dorm furniture
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Holiday decorations

Our small storage units (temperature control): 5×5, 10×5, 5×10

Medium Storage Units

You can fit about 2-3 bedroom’s worth of furniture in medium storage units. If you are moving from your apartment or condo, these provide a lot of space for your biggest items. Storage units are also useful for business owners. Store extra inventory, important files, and equipment in a self storage unit for a cheaper price than renting office space. Here are some items you can store:

  • Piano
  • Jet ski, kayak, canoe
  • Small trailer
  • Multiple mattresses
  • Washer/dryer
  • Appliances

Our medium storage units (temperature control): 10×8, 10×10, 10×15

Our medium storage units (drive up): 10×15

Large Storage Units

Large storage units are your best friend in a big move. They can hold 4-6 rooms’ furniture with room to spare for all your boxes and for walking through the storage unit to access your belongings. These storage units are also big enough to hold any additional vehicles that do not have a place around your property. These are a few items that can fit in a large storage unit:

  • Living room furniture (sofas, recliners, coffee tables)
  • Snowblowers and lawnmowers
  • Patio and dining room furniture
  • Car
  • Small boat
  • Trailer

Our large storage units (temperature control): 10×20, 10×30, 10×25
