What Fits in a 5' x 5' Storage Unit?

5' x 5' is typically the smallest storage unit size offered in the self storage industry. It's also one of the most popular sizes out there. Despite its modest dimensions, the 5' by 5' storage unit can hold an impressive selection of items ranging from collectibles and clothing to seasonal decorations and small furniture. In many cases, it's the ideal size. On this page, learn more about 5' x 5' storage unit size—what fits and what doesn't—and reserve your unit here at Stor-It today!

5' x 5' Storage: Great Fits and No-Gos

When it comes self-storage, bigger isn't always better. A 5 by 5 storage unit can fit more than most people think—and opting for a larger unit may leave you with excess space and an excessively large monthly bill. A lot of people ask us, “How big is a 5' x 5' storage unit?” and, “what does a 5' x 5' storage unit look like?” Ultimately, what they really want to know is, “what fits in a 5' x 5' storage unit”?

  • What fits. 5' x 5' storage units can hold several stacks of large moving boxes, as well as seasonal supplies, collectibles, and small furniture items such as chairs or skinny bookshelves.
  • What doesn't fit. A 5' x 5' space is roughly the size of a small closet. If you have an item that can't fit in your closet, then it probably can't fit in your 5' x 5' storage unit. Items that will need bigger storage include beds, couches, motor vehicles, and several rooms' worth of boxes.
