Whether it's for business or personal use, portable self storage units provide convenience and are an easy way to keep your items safe and protected. However, it can be tricky trying to figure out how much storage space you need.

After all, you don't want to end up with a unit that's too small for your needs or paying for a unit with extra storage space you don't need. To help you determine the right size storage space for you, let's look at the different portable storage unit sizes that are available.

What Portable Self Storage Unit Sizes Are Available?

With almost 10% of American households renting a self storage unit, this question comes up quite a few times. Generally, you're looking at the following options:

5×5 Storage Unit

With this option, and according to the dimensions, you get about 25 square feet of space. It's not much, so it's only suitable for storing small items, such as books, small pieces of furniture, and anything with a compact size.

5×10 Storage Unit

This option offers double the space compared to the 5×5 Storage Unit (50 square feet). It can fit in other, moderately-sized items or anything that could fit in the smaller unit, plus more. Popular uses of this storage unit size include bedroom and living room contents.

10×10 Storage Unit

You'll have 100 square feet at your disposal if you're renting out this type of size unit. It's ideal for storing the equivalent of a small apartment or two-bedroom sets, or even the contents of a small office.

10×15 Storage Unit

With 150 square feet available, you'll have plenty of space with this unit size. It can store up to 4 complete bedroom sets, and that's a lot of furniture and boxes. Because it can hold a lot of weight, this size container is commonly used for residential purposes when households are renovating or moving.

10×20 Storage Unit

This storage unit clocks in at a whopping 200 square feet. It's large enough to store the entire contents of a home. Therefore, it's best for families that are moving and need to pack a lot of furniture and boxes. Although it's great for personal use, this storage unit can also be used by businesses that want to store large items like equipment on their business premises.
