5×5 Storage Unit Sizes & Types

How big is a 5×5 storage unit?

A 5×5 self storage unit is 5 feet wide and 5 feet long, totaling 25 square feet — comparable to a large closet. Many of our 5×5 storage units have 8-foot ceilings, providing roughly a total of 200 cubic feet of packing space. Check with your local Public Storage facility for exact dimensions on 5×5 units.

I need less than a 5×5 storage unit, what are some alternatives?

5×5 storage units are our smallest standard units. If you’re looking for a bargain, our locker units provide value based on varying size, shape and ceiling height. The unique dimensions of the self storage building may provide smaller storage locker options. For example, some smaller locker storage sizes may be available with lower ceilings or in unique shapes, including units with 3×4, 4×5 and 5×4 dimensions.

Look for non-standard sized units labeled “Lockers” when you search for storage units near you.

What is a 5×5 drive-up unit?

A 5×5 drive-up storage unit offers you convenience and the ability to drive up directly to your unit for loading, unloading and easy access. Not only does drive-up access make moving large items easier, drive-up units also normally feature spacious loading areas and large roll-up doors. The temperature in 5×5 drive-up storage units are usually similar to your local weather conditions.

What’s the difference between indoor and outdoor 5×5 storage units?

Indoor 5×5 self storage units provide a little extra peace of mind. Your stuff will be shielded from the elements and down a hallway, away from the outdoors. With wide indoor hallways, getting to your belongings is simple too. Indoor units are ideal for long-term storage seekers. Some of our indoor units also come with climate controlled storage options for more comfortable visits.

Do you have pictures of your 5×5 storage units?

Absolutely! However, depending on your self storage facility’s location and unit availability, the appearance of your 5×5 self storage unit could differ. Whether the 5×5 storage unit is accessible using an elevator or on the storage building’s first floor may also change how your individual unit looks.

5×5 Storage Unit Items

What can you fit in a 5×5 storage unit?

The contents of a large closet or a small room can fit within a 5×5 self storage unit. Think chairs, small desks, small bookcases, suitcases and lamps. 5×5 storage units are also a great option for seasonal storage of holiday decorations, sports equipment and clothing. If you need some added space for the contents of one normal size room, consider our 5×10 self storage units.

Will a motorcycle fit in a 5×5 storage unit?

Unfortunately, no, most motorcycles will not fit in our 5×5 self storage units. Always check with your local self storage facility regarding their storage policies for motor vehicles.

Our 5×10 and 5×15 self storage units provide ample space for storing motorcycles, with enough room to access your bike easily and conveniently. When storing your vehicle with us, it must be in working condition, registered and insured.

For all your vehicle storage needs, many of our storage locations also offer dedicated storage spaces for cars, trucks and RVs.

Can a queen-size bed fit in a 5×5 storage unit?

Normally, queen mattresses are 60 inches wide by around 80 inches long. Based on these dimensions, a queen mattress could potentially fit in one of our 5×5 self storage units.

However, for more storage space and in order to prevent any damage to your queen mattress, we suggest a 5×10 storage unit or 5×10 and 5×15 self storage unit.

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

Since the size of a 5×5 storage unit is similar to that of a small walk-in closet, approximately 5 to 8 boxes can fit inside, depending on the size of your boxes. Remember that many of our units come with ceilings up to 8 feet tall. Stacking your boxes and belongings can help maximize your available space.

5×5 Storage Unit Prices, Availability & Amenities

What is the average price of a 5×5 storage unit?

Finding a 5×5 self storage unit online has never been easier. Reserving a unit based on your unique storage needs is simple with our no obligation reservation process. We also offer move-in specials for the first month’s rent on many units, helping you save money to make move-in less stressful.
