How Much Space Do You Need for Storage?

That all depends. You can get a good idea of how much space you need for summer storage by using our online estimator.

Or, use this as a guideline.

You have stuff from: a Bedroom or Unfurnished Dorm Room

Just the basics. You have your twin bed or futon, dresser, clothes, a TV and maybe a desk.


  • We recommend: a 5 x 5 Storage Unit

    You can strategically stack things into these student storage units, with a bit of room up top for a few boxes.

You have stuff from: a Bachelor Apartment

Take the stuff from the last list and add some kitchen items like a microwave and stand, a couch, a small kitchen table, and a few more boxes.


  • We recommend: a 5 x 10 Storage Unit

    You may be able to squeeze it all in this unit size, if packed tightly and stacked about 8 feet high. However, depending on the size of some of your furniture items or the number of boxes, you may also need to go the next size level up.

You have stuff from: a 1- or 2-Bedroom Apartment

Have you been sharing your place with a roommate to cut costs? Then you’ll likely have a few more boxes than the bachelor, a larger bed, and maybe another couch, loveseat, or armchair. You may also have a full-size dining table, bookcases, or even a barbecue or a couple pieces of patio furniture that you can take apart.


  • We recommend: A 10 X 10 Unit

    These unit dimensions should be enough to comfortably store everything, with some room to spare. On the other hand, if you’re also planning on storing a major appliance or two, or have a lot of other miscellaneous pieces, such as a large gym set or exercise equipment, you might need to upsize it one unit bigger for a better fit.
