What size self-storage unit do I need?

You’ve decided to rent a storage space, but you don’t know which size to get. For an accurate assessment of what size you need, check out our room size calculator. There are plenty of size options to choose from, and sometimes it can be confusing to know how much space you’ll need, or won’t need. When you store with Moishe’s, our helpful personnel can guide you into the best unit for your budget. For a quick idea of what size you may need, take a look below.

5 x 5 Unit (25 sq. ft.)

This closet-sized unit is perhaps the smallest size you’ll find. It’s best used for storing seasonal items, such as clothes, beach and ski gear and the likes. It can also hold a twin mattress and box spring.

5 x 10 Unit (50 sq. ft.)

Still closet-sized but more like a walk-in than a reach-in, a 5 x 10 unit is good for storing a queen-sized bed, a file cabinet, a dresser, and some boxes.

5 x 15 Unit (75 sq. ft.)

A 5 x 15 unit is like a large walk-in closet and should fit the furniture of one bedroom—like a bed and two nightstands, a chest drawer, a television and some boxes.

10 x 10 Unit (100 sq. ft.)

This unit is half the size of a one-car garage and should fit the contents of two bedrooms or a living room. For many New Yorkers who live in studios, this could be enough to fit most of their stuff.

10 x 15 Unit (150 sq. ft.)

A 10 x 15 should satisfy those looking to fit the contents of three bedrooms and larger items like couches, pianos, and bookcases.

10 x 20 Unit (200 sq. ft.)

This garage-sized unit can hold the contents of a home including furniture, boxes and even appliances such as a refrigerator and a washer and dryer.

10 x 25 Unit (250 sq. ft.)

Larger than a garage, this unit can hold the contents of a three-bedroom house complete with some outdoor items like grills and furniture.

10 x 30 Unit (300 sq. ft.) 

These units are equivalent to one and a half times the size of a garage and can hold the contents of up to a five-bedroom house. These larger units are most often used as business storage, as they offer enough space to stow unused office equipment, excess inventory, and other large scale items.
