Our Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

Our smallest self storage units are also some of our most convenient and affordable. Self-Stor-It lets you rent month by month, so you can store with us for seasonal storage and long-term use. Small storage units are about the size of a walk-in closet; therefore, they do have some sizing restrictions. You will be able to fit a few large boxes and miscellaneous items, but you should use caution when attempting to store larger sized mattresses and pieces of furniture. 

Medium Storage Units

This next size category gives you a little more wiggle room. Medium storage units start at 80 square feet and range up to 150 square feet. Think of these as being able to hold about 2-3 rooms’ worth of contents. You might be able to fit a few mattresses, two or three pieces of bedroom or office furniture, and a handful of large boxes.  

Large Storage Units

When you rent from our large storage unit category, you have access to up to 200 square feet of storage space. Keep the contents of your home secure during a move, or make Self-Stor-It your long-term nearby storage solution for your business. Our temperature-controlled storage units can protect business inventory, antiques, clothing, and other sensitive materials through any Connecticut season.
