Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

If you do not have a ton of items to pack away, 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. They are cost-efficient, and since we offer month-by-month leases, we can guarantee you will never get locked into any long contracts, paying for more than you need. For a small storage unit, pack your largest furniture first, followed by stackable boxes or bins of smaller items. Just make sure ahead of time that none of your large items are too big to fit inside your storage unit. 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. Commercial storage users generally look for indoor self storage to help protect against moisture-related damages. Our medium storage units provide the perfect space to give your business the room to grow. 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. Look through our available storage units to find an indoor storage unit large enough to store all your belongings. Here are a few other pieces that will fit in a large storage unit:

  • Lawn equipment
  • Patio and dining room furniture
  • Vehicles (ATV, jet ski)
  • Trailer
  • Small boat or other watercraft
