What Size Storage Unit Will I Need?

Self storage unitsSelf-storage units come in various sizes from a small unit of 20 feet to upwards of a 200 feet. Self storage companies usually only quote floor space (width x length) when describing the different sizes of unit they have available and don’t generally give a cubic feet capacity unless asked.

So a 70 ft2 unit may be 10 feet in length by 7 feet wide = 70 ft2

To convert to cubic feet value of your storage room or unit simply add the height to the equation (length x width x height).

How High Are Storage Units?

The height of a self storage unit is normally about 8 feet, so the total cubic capacity of a 70 ft2 unit would be:

Length Width Height Cubic Feet
10ft 7ft 8ft 560 cubic ft
