Below are a few comparable spaces and items that can help you get an idea of storage unit sizes.

One-Bedroom Apartment

A 5x5, 5×10, or 5×15 storage unit can hold the contents of a one-bedroom apartment. These small unit sizes typically fit a queen-sized mattress set, dresser, kitchen table, and moving boxes. Compare a 5x5 vs 5x10 storage unit for your one-bedroom apartment.

Two-Bedroom Apartment

A 10×10 or 10x15 storage unit is a great fit for a two-bedroom apartment. These medium unit sizes are perfect for storing moving boxes, bedroom sets, couches, TV stands, and more.

Multi-Bedroom House

A 10x20, 10×25, or 10×30 storage unit is ideal for multi-bedroom homes. These large unit sizes provide enough room for furniture, appliances, moving boxes, lawn tools, and more.

Storing a Car

A 10x20 (or larger) storage unit can typically accommodate auto storage. With indoor vehicle storage options, you'll have a garage-like space for your sedan, SUV, truck, or van.

Storing a Motorcycle

A 5x10 (or larger) storage unit provides plenty of space for motorcycle storage. Depending on the size of your bike, or how many you need to store, you may look at sizing up your storage unit. See the difference between a 5x10 and 10x10 unit for your motorcycle.

Storage Lockers

A storage locker has more than enough room for storing small personal items, such as paper documents and files, sporting gear, photos, and more. These units can come as small as 1x1.
