The biggest challenge in self storage (besides moving all your items) is figuring out what size storage unit will best suit what you need to store. If you get a small storage unit, you do not want it to be too small. But you also do not want to pay for more space than you need. Salisbury Storage Warehouse has made the process easier with our storage unit size guide. Here are a few items that can fit into each size storage unit. See the different storage units we have available in Salisbury, MD!

Small Storage Units

Whether you are a student looking to store dorm items or a homeowner trying to clear space in your house, small storage units are affordable means of doing so. They can hold approximately one bedroom’s contents. You can fit in a few large items and a number of boxes and bins. At about the size of a walk-in closet, these are ideal for seasonal storage and student storage. They can also store:

  • Smaller pieces of furniture (like dressers or desks)
  • Mattress (up to a full size for a 5×5)
  • Seasonal items and holiday decorations

Medium Storage Units

Medium storage units range from half to a full one-car garage and fit 2-3 rooms’ furniture. This includes larger furniture like couches and love seats. They are handy for residential and commercial use. Business owners can use self storage to hold their inventory instead of renting office space or finding additional warehouse space. Here are some of the many items that can fit in a medium storage unit:

  • Garage/shed tools
  • Seasonal clothing
  • Business inventory and equipment
  • Bicycles, motorcycles, scooters

Large Storage Units

Homeowners needing to store a majority of the items in their house should rent a large storage unit. They have enough room to store everything and still leave room for you to navigate through your belongings. You do not need to worry about any sizing restrictions with this category; all large mattresses and furniture sets are good to go! These large spaces can hold:

  • Furniture sets (living room, dining room, patio)
  • Vehicle
  • Water crafts (small boat, canoes, jet skis, kayaks, etc.)
  • Trailer
