Metal storage units come in a variety of sizes in order to suit a number of different needs. Knowing the basic available sizes and what they’re best used for can come in very handy. Once you know that, you’ll know which choice is right for you. It is also good to mention that some sizes are suitable for individuals, while others are suitable for businesses. Here’s all the information you need!
Sizes suitable for personal items
5×5 Storage Unit: This is one of the smallest available sizes. The full dimension of the unit is equivalent to 25 square feet, and it’s for individuals who want to store smaller items like boxes, books, small furniture and appliances, and other compact items. It can also be used to store seasonal decorative items like Christmas décor, or even gardening tools that you don’t regularly use.
5×10 Storage Unit: With a total area of 50 square feet, this moderate-sized storage unit is great for personal use. The capacity is big enough to accommodate midsize furniture and electronics from a bedroom or living room. In addition, it’s easy enough to slip in anything you could fit into a smaller unit. If you have too many things to store than will fit in the smaller container, this is a good alternate option for you rather than going for two smaller units.
10×10 Storage Facility: This size unit is a perfect 10×10 square, which comes in at 100 square feet total. It’s large enough to contain a number of items, including two complete bedroom sets (or more, if you’re creative!).
10×15 Storage Facility: Clocking in at 150 square feet, this unit can store plenty of items, including up to three full bedrooms’ worth of furniture and boxes. If you’re moving and need temporary storage for your things, this is a good choice.
10×20 Storage Units: This is one of the largest sizes of units that’s best for personal use. At 200 square feet, it offers enough space to store an entire home’s worth of boxes and furniture.
There are many other larger sizes than those listed above, like 10×30 storage unit with an area of 300 square feet. Each of these storage units can also be used by businesses that have items to be stored on or off the business premises. The size suitable for such purposes depends on the size of items the business wants to store.
