How Much Space?
What size space do I need?

The first step in renting a storage unit is to determine how much space you'll need. Start by listing all the items you're going to store; then use the chart at right to estimate their volume.

Total Cubic Feet

To estimate the capacity of a storage unit multiply its length x width x height. (Most units are at least eight feet in height.)
Example: Volume of a 5' x 10' storage unit is 5 (width) x 10 (length) x 8 (height) = 400 cubic feet. Follow these simple steps to match the volume of your goods to the right size storage unit.
