5×10 Storage Unit Size

How big is a 5×10 storage unit?

A 5×10 self storage unit is a 5 feet wide and 10 feet long small storage solution, totaling 50 square feet. For comparison, a 5×10 space is a small storage unit that’s about the size of an average walk-in closet.

Many units have an 8-foot ceiling, giving you up to 400 cubic feet of storage space. But the actual height of each unit varies due to the unique dimensions of the self storage buildings themselves. Find your nearest Public Storage location to check the exact dimensions at their facility.

How many boxes fit in a 5×10 storage unit?

Each item’s size, the size of your boxes and how you pack each item affects the total number of boxes that a 5×10 storage unit can hold. If you’re only storing boxes, a 5×10 self storage unit can fit up to 20 large boxes with room to spare. When stored with furniture or appliances, you may want to use a variety of small, medium and large boxes to make the most of the space you have.

What does a 5×10 storage unit look like?

It can be helpful to picture our 5×10 storage units as similar in size to an average walk-in closet. Walk-in closets usually provide enough space for a person to comfortably stand in while browsing through their belongings or choosing an outfit. A guest or half bathroom or large outdoor shed are also good size comparisons.

How do you pack a 5×10 storage unit?

To maximize storage space, stack boxes up to your 5×10 self storage unit’s ceiling. Avoid leaning any of your things against walls, as this can be a potential safety hazard. When you’re packing, put heavier items at the bottom of boxes to create a stable base. Then, place the heaviest boxes at the bottom of the stack.

Getting creative with storage options and item placement can help save space too. Consider tucking away small items like books or CDs inside an appliance, like a mini-fridge. Keep items you need to get to frequently at the front of your 5×10 self storage unit, and make sure you clear a path down the center of your storage unit for easy access.
