Storage Unit Size Guide

Determine which self-storage unit sizes make the most sense for your belongings

If you need extra space for whatever reason, you've come to the right place. Using self-storage is a great idea if you are in the process of moving, downsizing, organizing your home or office, putting away seasonal belongings or just looking for somewhere to keep your stuff. Choosing ezStorage, with its commitment to clean and secure facilities and units, is an easy decision. The tougher decision can sometimes be which size unit to get. But with our online storage unit size guide, you'll be able to clearly see how much can fit into each unit.

We offer several unit sizes at our various self-storage locations, including 5' X 5', 5' X 10', 7.5' X 10', 10' X 10', 10' X 15', 10' X 20' and 10' X 30'. That's a range of 25-square-feet to 300-square-feet, providing you with plenty of options for self-storage unit sizes.

Our smaller units are great for storing boxes and a few pieces of smaller furniture, such as desks, chairs, bookcases, end tables and coffee tables. The 10' X 10' is typically large enough to fit the contents of a one bedroom apartment, including the bed and major appliances. As you increase to a 10' X 15', our storage unit size estimator shows that you can fit in even more furniture and boxes, generally what you might find in a two bedroom apartment or even a small house. A 10' X 20' unit is suitable to store the belongings of a three to four bedroom house or apartment, and can even store vehicles. Our largest unit, the 10' X 30' is comparable to a 40-foot moving van and can hold the belongings of a four or five bedroom apartment or home, or small trucks or boats. Keep in mind, our units are generally 8' tall.

Use our storage size guide to help ensure you aren't getting a unit that is too small - you want to make sure you can fit all of your belongings - or a unit that is too big - you don't want to pay for space you don't need. We offer competitive storage unit prices for the areas of Northern Virginia, D.C. and Maryland. If you need further assistance to determine the best size, our storage experts would be happy to help.
