How Big of a Storage Unit Do I Need?
Self-Storage units come in a variety of sizes. If you need a place to store extra boxes, furniture, or other possessions, you may be wondering what sized unit you need. Read on to learn more about how to choose the right storage unit size for your needs.
What Are You Storing?
The main factor that should determine how big of a unit you decide to rent is what you're planning on storing in it. The smallest storage units you can get are usually about the size of a small closet (roughly 5x5 feet) and are great for storing a few boxes, like if you want to keep your holiday decorations there during the offseason. From there, you can choose a larger size if you need to store furniture, appliances, or the contents of a room, apartment, or small home. A 5x10 unit is similar in size to a small walk-in closet and will fit queen and king-sized mattresses, dressers, desks, and small appliances.
Larger self-storage units can go up to sizes around 10x15 feet or even bigger, which is around the size of a one-car garage. These units can fit the contents of a small apartment, like couches, beds, boxes, appliances, and more. In addition, there are storage units available if you need to store vehicles like RVs, cars, boats, or others. No matter what you need to store, there's likely a unit that will fit your needs.
Keep In Mind...
It can be a good idea to choose a storage facility that can grow with you. While you may only need a small unit at the moment, in the future, you may find that you need to store more possessions. In that case, you can keep renting a unit at the same facility, and simply size up! Many storage facilities will offer a few different sizes of units on their premises, though there are often specific storage units that specialize in storing RVs and boats.
