It can be difficult to calculate exactly how much storage space you need, especially if this is your first time renting a storage space. To avoid renting too large or too small of a unit, we have assembled a quick guide to help you determine exactly how much space you need.
5 X 5 Unit (25 sq. ft.) :
Roughly the size of a home closet. Ideal for storing extra items such as boxes, twin-size mattresses, books, records/files, and other small miscellaneous items.
5 X 10 Unit (50 sq. ft.) :
Ideal for storing the contents of a studio apartment, including a number of boxes, kitchen appliances, small mattress set, chairs, or even a motorcycle.
10 X 5 Unit (50 sq. ft.) :
Identical to a 5×10 unit just with a wider door and shallower storage-depth. Tends to make accessing your items slightly easier than a 5×10.
5 X 15 Unit (75 sq. ft.) :
Great for storing the contents of a 1 bedroom apartment. Ideal for furniture including a couch, chair and small dinning set, sporting equipment, bicycles, business merchandise, and seasonal items.
10 X 10 Unit (100 sq. ft.) :
Ideal for storing the contents of a 2 bedroom condo. Perfect for holding an entertainment center, king-sized mattresses, larger appliances, dinning room, furniture, and other various items you’d find in a 2 bedroom condo.
10 X 15 Unit (150 sq. ft.) :
Perfect for holding the contents of a 3 bedroom house. Great for storing large screen t.v’s, bikes and other sporting equipment, large furniture, full dinning room set, or even music equipment like a c-3 piano, drum set, or all the equipment needed for a several-month long tour.
10 X 20 Unit (200 sq. ft.) :
Now we’re getting to sizes ideal for cars, boats, and other vehicles. A 10X20 unit is ideal for a small car with some extra room to spare or a 3 to 4 bedroom set. Fill remaining space with sports equipment, small furniture set, boxes, or other small to medium personal items.
10 X 25 Unit (250 sq. ft.) :
Great for storing a small boat with trailer with some room to spare. Fill the rest of your space with a couch, small chairs, small bedroom furniture set, and other miscellaneous items.
10 X 30 Unit (300 sq. ft.) :
A 10×30 unit is great for storing a large vehicle, small boat, and other large items with room to spare. Moving across country? This size unit is ideal for storing the contents of a large home while you settle in.
