COMPARES TO
Hall closet

HOW MUCH FITS
Small furniture, chest, boxes, small items, holiday decorations, business records/files.

TIPS: Pack items in strong, same-size boxes so you can stack them for maximum use of floor space. Our ceilings are typically 9 to 10 feet tall — plenty of room to stack!

COMPARES TO
Walk-in closet

HOW MUCH FITS
Couch and chair, chest, boxes, mattress set, business records, overflow inventory.

TIPS: If you’re storing upholstered furniture, we recommend covering the items with sheets or special purpose covers. Purchase mattress bags on site.

5'x15'

COMPARES TO
Large walk-in closet

HOW MUCH FITS
One bedroom size apartment furnishings (without appliances), motorcycle.

TIPS: Drain all the gas from vehicles or lawn equipment before storing. It’s required for safety, plus it’s better for the engine.

10'x10'

COMPARES TO
Average size bedroom, 1/2 of a garage

HOW MUCH FITS
2-3 rooms of furniture, appliances, boxes, motorcycle, lawn tools, office furniture/files, excess business inventory.

TIPS: Plan before you store! Decide what goes in boxes and label the boxes with the contents. Don’t be tempted to use plastic bags for storing items — they deteriorate and provide no protection for contents.

10'x15'

COMPARES TO
Large bedroom

HOW MUCH FITS
3-4 rooms of furniture with appliances, business inventory.

TIPS: Store the largest, heaviest items toward the back of the unit and remember to leave some room to get to them should you need to.

10'x20'

COMPARES TO
Standard one-car garage

HOW MUCH FITS
Furnishings from a small house or 2 bedroom apartment with appliances or a car or truck.

TIPS: When storing a car or truck, don’t engage the parking brake. If brake pads make contact for too long, there is a chance that they might fuse. Use a tire stopper (chock) to prevent rolling.

10'x25'

COMPARES TO
Oversized one-car garage

HOW MUCH FITS
Furnishings and appliances from a home or large office suite, or a car, truck or boat.

TIPS: Pack electrical equipment (TVs, stereos, computers, etc.) in their original boxes if possible. If you don’t have the originals, pack the item in a box that fits it closely, then fill the extra space with packing material.

10'x30'

COMPARES TO
1 ½ car garage — extra large

HOW MUCH FITS
Furnishings from a 3 bedroom home with appliances, or contents of a large moving van, or a car and 1-2 rooms of furniture.

TIPS: Before storing a refrigerator or freezer defrost completely to avoid water damage and mildew. Leave the door open slightly while stored.
