Sizing Guide

Our Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Common Uses: dorm/college apartment furniture, garage/attic excess, seasonal clothing

Small storage units range from 5×5 to the size of a small walk-in closet. You can fit about a bedroom’s worth of items. They generally hold 2-3 large furniture pieces and some boxes. Additionally, you can store:

  • Smaller pieces of furniture (dressers, desks, small bookshelves)
  • Mattress
  • Holiday decorations

One word of caution with small storage units is that you should always check your measurements before attempting to store large pieces of furniture in self storage. This size category may be able to hold twin and full-sized mattresses, but anything more will be a tight fit or too big.

Medium Storage Units

Common Uses: business inventory, apartment/condo contents

A medium storage unit can be anywhere from the size of a half to a full one-car garage. They can hold 2-3 rooms’ contents and can start fitting larger furniture, like:

  • Appliances
  • Bicycles, motorcycles, scooters
  • Bed frames
  • Business inventory
