Princeton Self Storage Unit Size Guide

Small Storage Units

If you are looking to store only a few items, small storage units are the ones for you. These are about the size of a closet and can fit about a bedroom’s worth of items. This means you can store a few pieces of large furniture followed by some boxes. Small storage units can hold:

  • Mattress
  • Small dressers and dressers
  • Seasonal pieces, decorations, clothing
  • Boxes of miscellaneous items

With this storage unit size especially, you want to make sure you do not rent too small of a unit. Always double-check the size of your items before attempting to store them. For example, mattresses queen size and larger will most likely not fit in our smallest storage units.

Medium Storage Units

If you think a small would be too small, there is no harm in jumping up to a larger storage unit. Medium storage units can hold 2-3 rooms’ items. They can hold your apartment furniture in a move or store your small businesses’ inventory. These start to fit larger items like:

  • Washer/dryer, refrigerator
  • Garage/shed/basement/attic contents
  • Motorcycles
  • Bicycles
  • Water sports equipment
  • Small trailer

These ease off on sizing restrictions to offer a versatile space. Talk to our storage experts about finding month-by-month or long-term storage with Princeton Self Storage. We stay flexible, so you never have to pay for more space than you need.

  • Power tools and work stations
