Summit Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Looking for a storage unit size guide to help you determine the amount of storage space you need to rent? Especially if you are new to renting self storage, it can be tricky to figure out the right amount of space to securely hold all your items while also giving you enough space to move your belongings around if need be, organize them, and navigate through them. Our storage experts are happy to walk through our self storage units with you to figure out the best options, but we have included a storage unit size guide below to give you a good starting point. Find out if a small, medium, or large storage unit can hold all your items.

Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Why would you rent a small storage unit? Our smaller-scale storage is perfect if you need only  about a walk-in closet’s worth of space. This could hold your seasonal items, assist with a move to a new apartment, or act as quick temporary storage. Not all of your storage projects require a ton of space, and with Summit Self Storage, you will never have to pay for more space than you need. 

Medium Storage Units

Anything more than a room’s worth of items will need a storage unit in one of our larger categories. Our medium-sized options can handle 2-3 rooms’ contents. This can include a few mattresses (smaller storage units might not be able to accommodate queen- or king-sized mattresses), dressers, large boxes and bins, and other miscellaneous objects.

Large Storage Units

Are you a business in need of a decent amount of ongoing inventory space? How about a homeowner needing enough storage to support your family’s move, but only for a month or two? We have plenty of options for you to choose from, and our month-by-month leasing gives you the flexibility you need to stay in your budget.  

Summit Self Storage – Find a Location Near You!

Now that you have looked through our storage unit size guide, you might have a better idea about the storage unit size that would best serve you. If you would like a closer sizing estimation, you can use our online storage calculator or ask one of our storage experts if they can guide you in the right direction. They can also recommend storage features that can properly accommodate the items you are looking to store. For instance, our temperature-controlled storage units are indoors, giving more protection against weather happening outside. Our drive-up storage units, on the other hand, are outdoors and have the added convenience of being able to pull your vehicle directly up to your storage unit to unload. Find the storage units you need online with Summit Self Storage!
