How to Choose the Right Storage Unit Size

It’s important to choose the right size storage unit to avoid paying extra for space you don’t need or worse: not having enough space for your belongings. The best way to rent the right size unit is to first make an inventory of the items you will store, including appliances, boxes, furniture, and anything with an odd shape that can’t be stored in a box. If you’re still not sure, keep reading below or contact us and we can assist to estimate the size you need.

Locker Units

A locker unit is about the size of half a small closet with enough space for a luggage, sports equipment and a few medium-sized boxes. This is the smallest storage unit size available. You will have space for about 17 file boxes.

5×5 Storage Units

A 5×5 unit is about the size of a small closet with enough space for a small mattress and box spring, dresser, and a few medium-sized boxes. This is the most common storage unit size for storing seasonal items, garden and lawn care items, and sports equipment. This is also a common storage unit for business storage. You will have space for about 35 file boxes.

5×10 Storage Units

A 5×10 unit is about the size of a small walk-in closet. You can fit the furniture from a medium-sized bedroom, including a dresser, television, queen-sized bed set, and many medium-sized boxes. A 5×10 unit is a good size for a studio apartment or small one-bedroom apartment.

5×15 Storage Units

A 5×15 unit is comparable to a large walk-in closet. You will have enough space for everything in a bedroom, including nightstands, a dresser, a queen-sized bed set, a television, and many large boxes. This size is perfect for a one-bedroom apartment or items in your garage. For business use, you will have space for 150 file boxes.

10×10 Storage Units

A 10×10 unit is about the size of half of a one-car garage. You can fit everything in a large living room or two full bedrooms as well as many medium-sized boxes. This size is perfect for a two-bedroom apartment or household equipment.

10×15 Storage Units

A 10×15 unit is about the size of half of a garage with enough space for three bedrooms and many large items like couches, tables, large televisions, and pianos. This size is most common for storing a three-bedroom house or a full apartment’s worth of belongings.

10×20 Storage Units

A 10×20 unit size is close to a one-car garage with enough space for a two-bedroom home. You will have space for a couch, a washer/dryer set, a refrigerator, and a dining room set. This is a good size for storing everything in a large garage or a four-bedroom house.

10×25 Storage Units

A 10×25 unit size is a good choice for homes with more than three bedrooms or everything in a large garage. You will have space for a fully furnished three-bedroom home, including large furniture, an entertainment center, and a washer and dryer set.

10×30 Storage Units

With a 10×30 size unit, this large storage unit can hold everything in a two-bedroom home plus a car, or a five-bedroom fully-furnished home.

It is cool to see that a 10×30 storage unit can help you store your cars. I can see that doing some research and choosing the best units or your needs can help you keep your items safe from the elements. We just got an RV and wanted to make sure we found the best place for it during the off-season, so I’m glad I found your page.

I am going on a study abroad this summer and I need to find a place to store some of my furniture while I am gone. It makes a lot of sense that I should choose a storage unit that can fit everything that I need. I think that the 10 by 10 you mention that is about the size of half of a garage would definitely fit everything without leaving too much empty space!

It’s great that you elaborated on the different size storage units you can rent. My sister told me that she has 3 big pieces of furniture she wants to store and she doesn’t want to spend too much on storage. I’m going to let her know about getting a 5*15 storage unit to put her belongings.

My mom wants to store all our childhood memories in a storage unit. I like how you mention a 10×30 storage unit can store a fully-furnished home and a vehicle. Thank you for the information. I’ll ask my mom which size does she want her storage unit.

It’s interesting to know that 10 x 25 storage units are a good choice for homes with more than three bedrooms. My husband and I are gonna move to another city, and we are looking for advice about what to do with our furniture since we will be living at my brother’s house until our house is ready. I will let my husband know about the option of renting a storage unit for our things and save us the trip back.

It was helpful when you compared the size of a 10 by 20 unit to the size of a one-car garage. That really helped me visualize how much space I’d have in it. I’m moving into a house with my fiance, and I want to store some of my stuff.
