Whether you’re moving, looking to declutter your home, or just need a bit of extra room to store valuables, furniture, sports equipment, or holiday decorations, a storage unit can temporarily increase the size of your home. But, if you’re like many people renting storage space in Eugene for the first time, you’re likely wondering, what size storage unit do I need?

Visual Guide: What Size Storage Unit Do I need?

When planning to rent a storage unit, start by making a list of the items you plan to store. Include items that will be in boxes (valuables, decorations, mementos, clothing, etc.), and freestanding items (lawn equipment, vehicles, appliances, etc.). Do your best to estimate the number of boxes you’ll fill, and then follow this handy guide for selecting from the most popular sized storage units in Eugene.

6 Common Storage Unit Sizes

However, you may find it helpful to consider the five most common and popular storage unit sizes to begin answering the question, what size storage unit do I need?

5’ x 5’ Storage Unit

A 5’ x 5’ storage unit is approximately the size of a small closet. So if you look at the items you’re planning to store, and they would fit in a standard closet, the 5’ x 5’ option is likely a good choice. 5’ x 5’ storage units offer 200 cubic feet of storage space.

5’ x 10’ Storage Unit

This unit is approximately the size of a walk-in closet. You may be able to fit a small sofa, along with boxes, and a table. A 5’ x 10’ storage unit affords you 400 cubic feet of storage space.

10’ x 15’ Storage Unit

A 10’ x 15’ storage unit will likely hold the contents of a small apartment. It’s just a little bit smaller than a one-car garage, so if the items you plan to store can fit in a single garage, this is probably a smart choice. A 10’x 15’ storage unit will give you 1200 cubic feet of storage space.

10’ x 20’ Storage Unit

A boat or the entire contents of a multi-bedroom home are likely to fit within a 10’ x 20’ storage unit. This unit is the size of a standard single-car garage, so even overstuffed items or oddly shaped items will fit in this unit. 10’ x 20’ storage units afford you 1600 cubic feet to store your items.

10’ x 25’ Storage Unit

Campers, trucks, and other large vehicles will find room in a 10’ x 25’ storage unit. Or you may fit a fully furnished three-bedroom home in this unit, which is larger than a one-car garage. The 10’ x 25’ storage unit affords you 2,000 cubic feet of storage space.

10’ x 30’ Storage Unit

Roughly the size of a one-and-a-half-car garage, you can likely fit the contents of a five-bedroom house in this unit. Or, if you have a smaller home, you’ll likely be able to store the contents of your home and a vehicle in this unit. The 10’ x 30’ storage unit offers 2400 cubic feet of storage space.
