Choosing the Right Small Storage Unit

Most self storage facilities have a range of storage unit sizes available. But how do you know which one will best fit what you are looking to store? Roslindale Self Storage has resources and experts to help you through the storage process. 

Sizing Guide

Small Storage Units

A small storage unit is about the size of a closet. These are the optimal sizes for clearing space in home storage areas and can hold about one room’s furniture. They can also fit:

  • Small dresser or desk
  • Desk chair
  • Mattress
  • Boxes/bins (Tip: Packing smaller items in boxes and bins makes it easier to fit more of your belongings in a storage unit. They pack more efficiently around boxy furniture.)

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units can hold your bigger furniture and appliances. They can be used for storing apartment furniture during a move, your motorcycle in the winter, and anything in between. A medium storage unit can hold:

  • Garage tools and contents
  • Trailers
  • Bicycles 

Large Storage Units

Your house’s biggest furniture will be safe in a large storage unit. That includes furniture sets, wardrobes, and bookcases. These are meant to hold the contents of a multi-room house. They can store:

  • Seasonal equipment (snowblowers, lawnmowers, etc.)
  • Dining room table
  • Couches and love seats
  • Car, truck
  • Water sports equipment (canoes, jet skis, kayaks, etc.)
