How big of a storage unit do I need?
To determine how the size of the storage unit needed, Overland Park Storage would recommend taking inventory of the items you plan to store and what you can budget for monthly self storage. If you are moving most of the contents in a two-story home, you may want to consider a 10x20 or 10x30 storage unit, whereas if you are moving into a college dorm, you may only need a 5x5 or 5x10 storage unit.
How much does a 5x5 unit hold?
To give you an idea of how much our units hold, let’s start with a 5x5 unit. One of our 5x5 storage units can contain a medium piece of furniture (like a dresser), a twin mattress set and a few large storage bins (as well as a few boxes!). We would highly recommend organizing efficiently, as you’ll save more space in your home or apartment while maximizing the capacity of your storage unit.
To see how much can fit in larger storage units, check out our size guide here.
What’s a typical storage unit height?
Storage units are typically 8 feet tall, allowing renters to store a sizeable amount of belongings without paying for too much room unused.
What if I want to change storage unit sizes after I’ve moved in?
If you’ve rented a unit that’s either too large or too small, give us a call! We’d be happy to offer you other available units within your budget. You can contact us here.
