Once you’ve decided on renting a self-storage unit, your next step will be to choose the unit size that you need. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we have a variety of storage spaces to choose from, and our team can help you pick the one that fits your needs. We have small, medium, and large storage units available, so visit one of our locations today to get started!

Small Storage Units

For this category, we’ve included our 5’x5’ and 5’x10’ units, giving you a range of 25 to 50 square feet. One of these small units is good for people who don’t have a lot of things to store, with most of their belongings in boxes or tubs.

With the smallest unit, at 25 square feet, you can usually fit several boxes and perhaps a few pieces of furniture. A couch or chair should fit without any problem, but a king-size mattress and bed frame might be tough to store. For that, you might need the 5’x10’ unit, where you can fit your bed frame and mattress, along with all of your boxes. You should also have some space left over for one or two appliances, such as a washer or dryer, as well as random items that can’t be put in a box, such as a bicycle.

Medium Storage Units

In this category, we’ll cover our three medium-size units, including our 5’x15’, 10’x10’, and 10’x15’ spaces, giving you a range of 75 to 150 square feet. If you need one of these units, chances are you have quite a bit to store.

The 75-square foot unit can fit several pieces of furniture, multiple boxes, and larger items you have to store, such as appliances. If you have items from two or three rooms in your house, then the 10’x10’ unit is likely a better choice. For families who need to store a majority of their belongings while they move or remodel, the 150-square foot unit is your best bet, with room for couches, chairs, bed frames, and even a piano (depending on the size of the piano).

Large Storage Units

Anyone who’s looking for a large storage unit usually has lots of things to store, and plans on keeping things in storage for an extended period of time. Our 10’x20’, 10’x25’, and 10’x30’ units are comparable to a one-car garage, and can hold a majority of your belongings for as long as you need. The 10’x20’, with 200 square feet, can fit a small vehicle, along with boxes, furniture, and more. If you’re going to be storing an entire house’s worth of belongings, then the 10’x25’ or 10’x30’ is probably a better option. These units have room for vehicles, appliances, and everything else you need to store.
