How Much Storage Space Do I Need?

Small Storage Units

  • If you are looking for an extra closet’s worth of space, the perfect storage unit for you is a small size where you can stash your items that do not get used day to day. The best way for people who have limited space in their homes to get organized is by prioritizing the items that take up your primary home storage space and storing the rest outside your home. Our small storage units can hold about one room’s contents—with minimal large items. Anything bigger than a full-size mattress will most likely need a larger size storage unit. Always check measurements before attempting to store!

Medium Storage Units

  • Medium storage units are great for those who need to store those larger items like mattresses, couches and desks. These spaces can accommodate larger pieces up until about the size of two rooms’ worth—which makes them ideal if you’re looking not just at storing your belongings but also allowing room in case the load grows over time!
