Storage unit sizes can get confusing if you are not already familiar with them. Storage Depot of Douglasville created a storage sizing guide to help you better understand what kinds of items can fit into each size storage unit. And if you run into any trouble along the way, our team of experts can help match you to the right size. Our goal is an easy self storage rental experience for you every time. So do you need a large or small storage unit? Let’s find out.
Small storage units are approximately the size of a closet. A 5×5 is the industry’s smallest size, but it is still capable of holding a few large items as well as some boxes. It is a good idea to pack smaller items in stackable boxes or bins so it is easier to pack them into a storage unit. When storing in this small category, always pay attention to the size of the items you are looking to store. Double-check that you do not end up dragging your king-sized mattress all the way down to the storage facility when you are renting a 25-square-foot unit.
A medium storage unit can store about 2-3 rooms worth of items, about the size of an apartment or condo. Store appliances, bed frames, and furniture during a move, or keep seasonal items tucked away if you do not have a lot of storage space in your home. Medium storage units are versatile for all kinds of storage needs. Storage Depot of Douglasville can even help local businesses store equipment and inventory in lieu of warehouse space.
The largest category of storage unit sizes do not have a lot of restrictions. Large storage units can fit all the furniture from your house, including mattresses, patio furniture, living room furniture sets, dining room tables, and a piano. You can even use them to store you small boat, trailer, or extra vehicle.
