How Can I Find the Right Self Storage Unit Size for My Needs?

Choosing the correct storage unit size begins with a thorough evaluation of the items you plan to store. Start by cataloging your belongings, including furniture, boxes, and any oversized or unusual items. Consider future items that you may need to store as well, since your storage requirements might expand. It’s best to select a unit that accommodates all your items comfortably, with additional space to allow for easy access and organization. At Beehive Storage, our experts are on hand to provide personalized guidance and support, helping you find the perfect storage solution that fits your specific needs.

These compact units are an economical choice as you are decluttering or managing short-term projects.

Medium-sized storage units, available in dimensions 8’x10’ up to 10’x15’, offer a flexible storage solution that can handle the load equivalent of a full family room or the contents of two bedrooms. These units are large enough to accommodate bulkier items such as furniture sets, major appliances, and bicycles, as well as a substantial amount of boxes. If your home storage areas are overflowing or you’re in the midst of relocation, these units provide an ideal balance of space and accessibility. Consider a medium unit if you’re using up to a 16’ moving truck; it’s likely a perfect fit.

Ideal for: Moving the contents of a 1-2 bedroom home, small businesses needing extra inventory space, homeowners undergoing remodeling.

This includes large appliances, multiple furniture sets, assorted mattress sizes, and the bulkiest and most unwieldy items you may need to store. If you’re filling one of the largest moving trucks available to rent for a major move, one of these units will comfortably contain your entire load.
