Storage Unit Size Guide

Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

A small storage unit can store about a room, including a mattress, desk, and table. From there, you should be able to fit a few more boxes or bins stacked up. These are great for college students storing in between semesters or homeowners trying to clear space in their houses. They can hold tools, clothes, business inventory, and more. These are approximately the size of a walk-in closet—perfect for seasonal and garage/shed storage. One work of caution with small storage units: check the size of your items before you attempt to store them.

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units make it easy for apartment or condo renters to keep their belongings safe during a move. They will fit about 2-3 rooms’ worth of items. You may also want to use this space to store outdoor equipment, like kayaks or motorcycles. While our smaller storage unit sizes have some sizing restrictions, you should rarely run into sizing issues with medium storage units.

Large Storage Units

Moving houses? Keep all your items safe in a storage unit. Large storage units can fit everything you are looking to store, from extensive furniture sets to vast collections. They can also provide enough room to organize your belongings with some wiggle room for walking through to access your items with ease.
