How Big is a 5×5 Storage Unit?

A 5×5 storage unit is 5 feet in width by 5 feet in depth. 

In terms of height, most 5×5 storage units are between 8 to 10 feet in height to allow for easy movement and positioning of various belongings.

While this may seem like a small space, a 5×5 unit can be incredibly useful for all types of purposes. In general, however, 5×5 units are best suited for personal storage.  

How Much Can You Fit in a 5×5 Storage Unit?

A 5×5 storage unit is designed for small-scale storage needs, such as packing up a college dorm room for the summer or storing holiday decorations during the off-season. 

Items that can be easily stored in a 5×5 unit include: 

  • Clothing
  • Moving boxes 
  • Small furniture
  • Sporting equipment

Ultimately, a 5×5 unit is what you make of it — if you want to keep the space well-organized for long-term use, you may want to store fewer items. However, if you want to make the most of the space for a short-term period, you can pack a 5×5 unit to the brim until you need your belongings again. 

What is the Price of a 5×5 Storage Unit? 

Pricing for a 5×5 storage unit can vary greatly according to several different factors, such as the features offered at a storage facility. Additionally, climate-controlled units are often more expensive, as they keep your belongings more secure and protected against mold and damage. 

In general, a 5×5 unit costs between $30 to $50 per month.
