Storage Depot of Gainesville’s Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Unit

When you need to store about a room’s worth of items or less, stay in our smaller range of storage units. They are cost-efficient, and you do not need to pay for any more space than you need. Be wary of the size restrictions for the smallest units, as larger mattresses and other pieces of furniture will not fit in a 5×5 or 5×10 storage unit. Check the measurements of your items before you attempt to fit them in storage.

A small storage unit is about the size of a closet and can hold approximately one room’s contents. Common uses for small storage units include holiday decoration storage, seasonal clothing storage, and other short-term storage projects.

Medium Storage Unit

A step up from the small category, our medium storage units can hold about 2-3 rooms’ contents. This comes in handy if you are going through a move or are downsizing/upgrading your current space. These do not have as many sizing restrictions, but you should still be careful trying to fit your largest objects. We recommend planning the layout of your storage unit before you move in your items, so you can keep track of your items in storage as the load grows.

Large Storage Unit

Need to store the whole house? You can rent a large storage unit long-term or month-by-month from our storage facility on Southwest 40th Boulevard. These will hold your couches, kitchen table set, all your boxes, and so much more. Talk through your storage rental with one of our experts to make sure you are renting enough space for your project.
