Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Looking to store approximately the contents of a one room? Small storage units are your go-to for lighter loads. Think of them as about the size of a walk-in closet. They are cost-efficient options and perfect for storing seasonal items, like holiday decorations and winter clothing. You do have to be careful about double-checking measurements before attempting to fit in a larger-sized mattress or other pieces of furniture. 

Medium Storage Units

If a small storage unit can hold about one room’s worth of items, consider a medium storage unit to hold about two to three rooms’ worth. You have far fewer sizing restrictions and have enough space for up to a king-sized bed. Rent a medium storage unit to help you move apartments or store your belongings during renovations.

Large Storage Units

For the contents of a three-plus bedroom home, you will want to go big. Pack in all your beds, mattresses, indoor and outdoor furniture sets, and appliances during a move to keep it all secure.
