How Big is a 5×5 Storage Unit?
A 5×5 storage unit is 5 feet in width by 5 feet in depth. As for the height of a 5×5 unit, this can vary from one storage facility to the next — though most are at least 8 feet tall.
This type of storage unit is almost always considered a “small” storage unit and is designed to be highly convenient and affordable for customers with minimal storage needs.
How Much Can You Fit in a 5×5 Storage Unit?
The best way to describe a 5×5 unit is as a large closet. It is best used for personal storage to help declutter your home, though it can also be great for small moves.
Items that can be stored in a 5×5 storage unit include:
- Seasonal storage items
- Holiday decorations
- Sporting equipment
- Small furniture items
While it is up to you to make the most of the space available to you, a 5×5 storage unit can usually fit between 5 to 8 moving boxes comfortably. Ideally, a 5×5 storage unit should be used to hold the contents of a single room, such as a bedroom or dorm room.
What is the Price of a 5×5 Storage Unit?
The price of a 5×5 storage unit is highly dependent on the storage facility, current demand, and amenities provided. For example, a facility that offers climate-controlled units and advanced security features will often be more expensive than a facility without such features.
In general, you can expect to pay between $30 to $50 per month for a 5×5 storage unit.
