We want you to find the perfect match for your needs and budget, so use our self storage size guide and explore our most popular storage sizes tailored for one-bedroom apartments.

What Fits in a 5×10 Unit?

Comparable in area to a walk-in closet, a 5×10 storage unit is ideal for accommodating belongings from a dorm room, one-bedroom apartment, or any other small living space. Furniture like a mattress and bed frame, small appliances, and several boxes of personal items can all comfortably fit in this small but capable storage unit.

How Big Is a 5×15 Storage Unit?

Stepping up in size, the 5×15 unit provides additional space, suitable for longer items such as building supplies or sports equipment. These robust units present a great value, giving you all the length of a 10×15 unit at a fraction of the price. We recommend a 5×15 unit to those with a bit more to store, offering flexibility and convenience for items that may not fit comfortably in a smaller unit.

Why Would I Choose a 10×10 Storage Unit?

Our 10×10 storage units, with an extra 25 square feet compared to the 5×15, give you more than just additional space. When you rent a 10×10 unit, you give yourself the convenience of having a wide roll-up door, double the size of smaller unit options. This larger door allows for the effortless movement of bulky appliances and pallets into your unit without having to navigate tight corners and cramped entryways. 

It’s no wonder that 10×10 units are among our most popular self storage sizes. The increased internal width allows for multiple rows of shelving, enhancing organization and making inventory management a breeze for small business owners. If you are trying to fit large items into an already packed space, you’ll appreciate the extra room to navigate.
