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.) :
Basically, the size of a standard bedroom closet, perfect for storing boxes, books, twin mattresses, files, records, and other small items.
5 X 10 Unit (50 sq. ft.) :
If boxed and packed correctly you could fit the contents of a standard studio apartment, to include appliances, chairs, boxes and possibly your 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.) :
Needing space to store your 1-bedroom apartment? A 5 X 15 should cover most furniture to include a small dinning set, couch, chair, seasonal items, and if organized maybe even your bicycle and sports equipment.
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.) :
Most garages will not fit your boat, so we have found that a 10 X 25 unit can handle a boat with trailer, with extra space for all those other seasonal items that seem to clog up our garages.
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.
Vehicle Parking Spaces:
Most of our facilities offer indoor, covered, and outdoor parking spaces to store your car, boat, or RV. Parking spaces come in a variety of sizes while offering unique features.
