Small Storage Units

If you do not have a ton of items, your first option is a small storage unit. These usually hold about one room’s worth of contents and are about the size of a closet. Pack your largest furniture first, followed by stackable boxes or bins of smaller items. You can fit:

  • Mattresses
  • Small desks and dressers
  • Seasonal items (clothing, holiday decorations)
  • Boxes of smaller pieces

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units are where you can start to store larger items, like appliances and smaller vehicles. They can hold about 2-3 rooms of furniture. These are commonly used for apartment renters during a move or business owners who are storing inventory. Larger pieces that will fit in a medium storage unit include:

  • Home storage space (basement, attic, closet, garage) overflow
  • Sports equipment
  • Bicycles, motorcycles, scooters
  • Water sports equipment

Large Storage Units

Use a large storage unit to keep your belongings safe while you are moving houses. Climate control is especially helpful if you have wooden furniture, pictures, electronics, or other sensitive items. Here are a few other pieces that will fit:

  • Lawn equipment
  • Patio and dining room furniture
  • Vehicles (car, truck)
  • Trailer
  • Small boat or other watercraft
