What Items Will Fit in a Small Storage Unit?

Which of your items will actually fit in the storage unit you rented? It is a good idea to first take inventory of what you need to store. Then consult one of SpareSpace Storage’s experts or our storage calculator for a size recommendation. Make sure you do not rent too small of a storage unit. Our sizing guide below will help you get a better idea of what we have to offer and how they can work for you.

Sizing Guide

Small Storage Units

How small is too small? These are about the size of a closet and can hold approximately one room. They leave enough room for a student to a store their dorm or apartment furniture. Small storage units also act as good extensions of your garage or attic. Leave your home storage for everyday items, and put your seasonal items in storage. Always be sure to double check the measurements of items before trying to fit them into a storage unit.

Medium Storage Units

Starting at the size of a large walk-in closet and ranging to about a one-car garage, there are a lot of uses for medium storage units. If you are moving from an apartment or condo, these can hold 2-3 rooms. They do not have size restrictions on many common household items. Mattresses, desks, bookcases, sofas, and more will fit. Smaller vehicles and water crafts can also be stored in a medium storage unit.

Large Storage Units

Homeowners, this one is for you. If you need to store most of the contents of your multi-room house, large storage units can do so and leave some space to access your items. Your largest furniture (table sets, couches, love seats, bookcases) will fit. Ground-level storage units are convenient for when you need to move in large sums of items and require access for your vehicle. And speaking of vehicles, large storage units can also hold your extra vehicle or small boat.
