Our Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

The smallest storage unit option is approximately the size of a small closet. This can fit one or two large pieces of furniture, as well as a handful of boxes and miscellaneous items. Deeper options may also fit outdoor equipment that you might usually store in a garage or shed. When storing in small storage units, measure your items before attempting to store them if you then they will be a close fit.

Our small storage units: 5×5, 5×10, 5×15

Medium Storage Units

Maybe you need to store a little more than a closet or bedroom’s worth of items but still fewer than a whole house’s worth. These in-between units have a few sizes that can comfortably fit mattresses, appliances, large instruments, or business inventory. We are close to a number of local businesses, and our storage facility poses as a convenient stop along County Road near Halifax.
