Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Do not underestimate the storing capabilities of a small storage unit. They are perfect for seasonal storage, like clothes or holiday decorations. And if you are a student in the Toledo area, Mr. Storage can hold your dorm or apartment contents over semester breaks. Our small storage units are convenient and cost-efficient. Double check measurements of items that may be too big for one of these storage units. For instance, a 5×5 storage unit can hold only up to a full size mattress. In general, small storage units can fit:

  • Mattress
  • Small dressers and dressers
  • Chairs
  • Light fixtures

Medium Storage Units

With a little more room than their smallest counterparts, medium storage units do not have many restrictions as to what they can hold. Bring in your king and queen mattresses with no problems. Medium storage units can fit about two or three rooms’ items. They are ideal sizes for people moving out of apartments or condos and business owners who need space to store inventory or equipment. Find an indoor storage unit for additional protection for temperature changes and extremes. These medium storage units can hold:

  • Appliances

  • Motorcycles and bicycles
  • Water sports equipment (canoes, jet skis, kayaks, etc.)

Large Storage Units

  • Seasonal equipment (snowblowers, lawnmowers, shovels, etc.)
  • Living room furniture/patio furniture
  • Dining room table and chairs
