Storage Unit Size Guide & Tips

Small Storage Units

The key to making the most of your small storage unit is to pack your small items in a way that you can stack them. A 5×5 storage unit does not have a lot of floor space, but if you fit most of your small pieces into boxes or bins, they will easily fit in our smallest option. Small storage units, about the size of a closet, are good for storing miscellaneous and seasonal items like:

  • Dorm furniture
  • Up to a full size mattress (for a 5×5)
  • Small desks and dressers
  • Summer/winter clothing
  • Holiday decorations (Christmas tree, lights, blow-up decorations)

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units are handy if you are moving from an apartment or condo. These can two or three rooms’ contents and bigger furniture. Larger options in this category may also fit smaller vehicles and trailers with room to spare. Other objects you can store are:

  • Multiple mattresses of any size
  • Water sports equipment (jet skis, kayaks, canoes, etc.)
  • Appliances (washer, dryer)
  • Small trailer
  • Motorcycles or bicycles

Storage units are also beneficial for business owners. Store your inventory or equipment in self storage instead of renting an office building, and save money. This also keeps you from having to store business items in your home and taking away some of your personal storage. Our temperature-controlled storage options are ideal for protecting items that are sensitive to moisture and temperature fluctuations.

Large Storage Units

Those who are moving to a new house generally need large storage units to hold everything from their old house during the move. Let Cool Spring Storage Center hold on to your prized possessions as you settle into your new home. Our large storage units can hold your biggest furniture items like:

  • Dining room and patio furniture
  • Shed equipment (lawnmowers, snowblowers)
  • Living room furniture
  • Vehicles (car, truck, small boat, trailer)
