Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Commonly Used For: clearing extra space in your house, students’ dorm/apartment furniture, seasonal clothing and games, holiday decorations, sales inventory

The smallest standard size is 5×5, and small storage units span up to 75 square feet. Small storage units are about the size of a closet and can hold the contents of a standard bedroom. Be sure to always double check the measurements of your items before attempting to fit them into the storage unit.

Medium Storage Units

Commonly Used For: moving from apartment/condo contents, small business inventory, shed/garage/basement items, small vehicles

Medium storage units range from about the size of a walk-in closet to a one-car garage. These do not have as many size restrictions as the small storage units. Most large furniture will be able to fit, including kayaks and motorcycles.

Large Storage Units

Commonly Used For: moving from multi-room house, vehicles and trailers, business inventory/equipment

Large storage units can hold four to six rooms’ furniture, perfect for storing the contents of your home in a move. Your small boat, trailer, or extra vehicle can also fit in one of our storage units.
