The first step in determining your ideal storage unit size is to take a detailed inventory of your items. Measure the length, width, and height of furniture pieces, and note any larger or oddly shaped items. Additionally, estimate the number of boxes or containers you plan to store.

Storage units are often listed by floor dimensions, providing a sense of available square footage. Remember that units typically have at least an eight-foot ceiling. Here are some of the unit sizes to compare

Medium Storage Units

  • 5x15 Units: Medium-sized units suitable for moving an entire apartment.

  • 10x10 Units: Half the size of a single-car garage, accommodating one or two-bedroom apartment contents.

Large Storage Units

  • 10x20 Units: First of the large units, suitable for a full home's worth of furniture.

  • 10x30 Units: The largest standard unit, useful for large house contents or temporary storage during renovations.

Extra-Large Units

  • Units exceeding 300 square feet are typically used by businesses for inventory, materials, or equipment storage.

Handy Tips for Picking the Right Size

For quick reference, here are some practical tips to help you determine the size you're likely to need:

  • A one-bedroom or studio apartment requires a 5x10 or 5x15 unit.
