What fits in what size unit?
Estimating the amount of space you require is often the hardest part of storing your goods.
Sometimes you'll need to store goods of unusual sizes. If that's the case, why not give us a call? We'll be happy to help you find the size that's right for you. Don't forget, subject to availability, you can always change your unit size.
Cubic vs. Square Footage
Moving companies usually use cubic feet as their measurement of choice. Here's the basic formula: a 10 x 10 (W x L)* storage unit is 100 square feet of floor space (multiply the length times the width). All of our units have 8' high or 9’6” high ceilings, so multiply that by your square footage to come up with your cubic footage.
|Unit Size||What Will Fit?||Typical Room|
25 sq. ft. This unit is like a small walk in closet. It' a good space to keep an overflow of things such as seasonal items (winter or summer clothing, pool toys, sleds and toboggans), toys, boxes and miscellaneous household and office items.
100 sq. ft. This storage space is the size of a kids room. It can hold the entire contents of a two bedroom apartment and easily can hold the belongings of two people or you could always use it as a garage and store a vehicle or small boat in it instead. If you plan on doing this, make sure that you get a unit that opens to the outdoors rather than into a hallway.
