Storage Unit Sizing Chart

Small Storage Units

Small storage units are about the size of a walk-in closet or small bathroom. In order to get the fullest use of a small storage unit, particularly a 5×5, you will want to pack your items so they are stackable. Boxes and bins can more easily pack around desks and other big furniture. These storage units are popular for seasonal items that do not need to take up space in your home. Some other pieces of furniture that can fit in a small storage unit are:

  • Up to a full size mattress
  • Small dressers and bedroom storage
  • Chairs
  • Christmas tree
  • Holiday decorations
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Beach chairs, tents, boogie boards, umbrellas

Our small storage units (drive up): 5×5, 5×10

Our small storage units (interior): 5×10

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units give a little more space for larger furniture items, like appliances and bigger mattresses. These can generally fit two to three bedrooms’ items and come in handy if you are moving from an apartment or condo. They are also useful for business owners who are looking for an alternative storage solution for their inventory and equipment other than renting office space. For residential and commercial use, medium storage units can also hold:

  • Washer/dryer
  • Canoes, jet skis, kayaks
  • Garage and shed items (tools, lawnmower, snowblower, etc.)
  • Bicycles/Scooters
  • Motorcycle

Our medium storage units (drive up): 8×10, 10×10

Our medium storage units (interior): 8×10, 10×10

Large Storage Units

For moving to a new house, you will want a large storage unit. These can fit four to six rooms’ contents and still have some space left over to walk through and access your items. Large storage units are about the size of a one-car garage. Besides all your mattresses and bedroom furniture, they can also fit:

  • Living room furniture
  • Dining room table and chairs
  • Car
  • Truck
  • Small boat
  • Trailer
