Our Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Unit

The smallest category of storage units is great for short-term solutions, like seasonal storage or moving help. At about the size of a walk-in closet, you do have some sizing restrictions, so always be sure to double-check that your items will fit in the storage dimensions. Tackle holiday decoration organization, spring cleaning with this cost-efficient storage option. 

Medium Storage Unit

Medium storage units are helpful when you need to store about 2-3 rooms’ worth of items. These can hold large pieces of furniture and even small vehicles, like bikes and jet skis. If you are moving from an apartment or condo and need to stow away your belongings for the time being, this in-between will be a comfortable fit.

Large Storage Unit
