Storage Unit Sizing Chart

Below is a handy set of charts that will help you determine the size unit you need based on how many items you have and the size of those items

Below  is a handy set of charts that will help you determine the size unit you need based on how many items you have and the size of those items.

All our units are 10' in height, so you get more cubic feet of storage space than average, (average storage units have a height of 8')

 

Just keep track of and multiply the quantity you have of each item by it's size, and add the total at the far right. After you go through the entire checklist, add up the total cubic feet of your belongings to be stored and choose a unit that will accommodate that amount of cubic feet.

 

Storage units offer the follow cubic feet and square feet

 

  • 6' x 6'       36 ft/sq,    360 ft/cu
  • 5' x 10      50 ft/sq     500 ft/cu
