Choosing the right sized storage unit seems easy until it comes time to actually do so.

That’s why our team has created a guide to help you choose the right sized storage unit for your personal storage needs.

What Size Do You Need?

There are several common measurements for storage units. The problem is that most people are not able to calculate how much square footage they need based on the size of the items they're storing. If you plan to move anytime soon, use the storage unit size guide below to consider your future storage needs.
  • 5’ x 5’: Similar to a walk-in closet, this space fits a few pieces of furniture, six to eight boxes, or seasonal items. (25 sq. ft.)
  • 5’ x 10’: Fits most items for a studio or small one-bedroom apartment. (50 sq. ft.)
  • 10’ x 10’: Fits items for a one-bedroom apartment or large studio. (100 sq. ft.)
  • 10’ x 15’: Stores items for a small two-bedroom apartment or most household furniture or appliances. (150 sq. ft.)
  • 10’ x 20’: Perfect for items in a small two-bedroom house or storing a small vehicle. (200 sq. ft.)
  • 10’ x 30’: Ideal for items in a two- or three-bedroom home. It can store a small boat or a standard-sized vehicle. (300 sq. ft.)

Climatized Storage

Failing to account for weather conditions such as heat and humidity can leave your belongings vulnerable to the elements. Don’t risk your valuable property by failing to protect it while it’s stored. Our climate-controlled storage units are great for home furnishings, appliances, electronics, antiques, clothing, and other goods susceptible to the effects of heat and humidity.
Three of our newest facilities—Prairieville, LaPlace, and Gulfport—have state-of-the-art dehumidifiers, which go beyond temperature control to ensure mold and mildew won’t grow by keeping the humidity below 50%.
