How Big of a Storage Unit Do I Need?

When it comes to renting a self-storage unit, most customers struggle with choosing the appropriate unit size. Storwell has over ten different storage unit sizes to choose from, so it can be challenging to decide which size works best for you. We will go over a few sizes to help you choose which unit is best for your needs.
Select a unit size:

3x8 - Size of a closet

This our smallest available unit. This size is best for people who are looking to declutter their homes. If you have old Christmas decorations or boxes with old files taking up space in your garage, this is the unit you should go for. This size can also comfortably fit a lawn mower and some gardening equipment if you are looking to clear out your shed.

5x10 - Size of a bus stop shelter

While the 3×8 is best for minor clutter storage, with the 5×10 you can store more substantial pieces, like furniture. You can fit a bed frame, a couch, and a washing machine in this unit with room to spare. With a 5-foot opening, you have better access to your stuff. You can store bicycles or motorcycles in this unit with no problem.

5x15 - Size of a Large Walk-in Closet

This unit can fit the contents of a small apartment or loft including bookshelves, bedside tables, coffee tables, and several large appliances. This would also be a good option for businesses looking for file storage. One thing to consider with this unit is that it is much longer than it is wide. This might make it difficult to access items towards the back of the unit, so keep this in mind when moving in and organizing your belongings.

10x10 - Size of an Average Bedroom

In this unit size, you can start storing larger cabinets and several electronic appliances like washers, dryers, refrigerators, and large screen TVs. This is the size that might be best for people staging their homes who need a place to keep their old furniture. Because the unit is square, you have a little bit more room to play with when it comes to organization. For most people, this storage unit size will be the right option, as it has the most versatility for the price.

10x15 - Size of a Large Bedroom or Living Room

This unit is more spacious than the 10×10 and is a good choice if you are looking for long-term storage options. You can easily fit a dining table, a small couch, cabinets, and appliances in this unit. If you are looking to store your items long-term but will need to access them regularly, consider organizing your unit using shelving and leaving space for aisles, so you can move around and find items more easily.

10x20 - Single Car Garage

This unit can fit a small sedan or hatchback. If you are looking for a dedicated car storage unit, this might be the right choice for you. If you want to store tools and furniture along with your vehicle, you will need to go with a larger size. Keep in mind that if there isn’t enough space to open the doors to your vehicle, you’ll need to tow it into the unit.
