How Big is a 5x5 Storage Unit?
The 5x5 storage unit is 5 feet wide by 5 feet long, equaling approx. 25 sq ft. Though our 5x5 storage unit is our smallest storage space, you might be surprised to find out what you can fit inside.
Our 5x5 storage unit is one of the most popular ways to expand your home or business storage space.
The flexibility of our 5x5 unit is what makes it one of our most popular storage unit sizes. If you are relocating for a job, going on deployment, a student storing for a semester, or downsizing from a house to a one-bedroom apartment, our 5x5 unit is great for storing appliances, boxes, or miscellaneous items until you need them again.
5x5 Storage Unit Items
So, exactly what can you fit into a 5x5 storage unit? Sometimes, looking at a list of commonly stored items can help you better visualize a space's size and which storage option is right for you. When it comes to a self-storage 5x5 storage unit, you might be surprised by just how much this space can fit. For example, a 5x5 unit is ideal for:
- Seasonal clothes
- Sports equipment like skis, surfboards, hockey gear, and tennis bags
- Musical instruments
- Holiday decorations
- Small furniture
- Old family mementos
- Old files
- Extra office equipment
- Marketing materials
- And more
Pack Away Your Seasonal Clothing
Are your closets feeling a little overstuffed? Maybe you have so much clothing that it’s hard to find what you're looking for. Luckily, you don’t have to purge your closet or give away your favorite pieces — instead, consider storing out-of-season clothing in a 5x5 storage unit.
During the spring and summer seasons, store all your large coats, sweaters, holiday clothing, flannel PJs, snow boots, and more in a 5x5 unit. You’ll be amazed at how much easier it is to access your warm-weather clothing. You can even buy a few new outfits to add to your extra space.
When the temperature begins to drop, make the switch. Bring all your winter wear out of storage and pack up your tank tops, t-shirts, skirts, spring dresses, flip-flops, sandals, and beachwear.
With the help of our smallest storage unit, you can optimize your closet space and fall in love with your clothes all over again.
Store Your Extra Furniture or Office Supplies
Over time, it’s easy to collect extra furniture or for office space to feel smaller and smaller as you get more things. If you need more breathing space in your home or office, try our smallest unit size.
In a 5x5 storage unit, you can pack away pieces of furniture like:
- Small kitchen tables.
- Outdoor chairs.
- Twin beds.
- Love seats.
- Small sofas.
- Coffee tables.
- Extra dining room chairs
- Extra office chairs
- Small desks.
You can also keep your office tidy by storing:
- Marketing materials.
- Extra inventory.
- Old files.
- Seasonal decor.
- Extra equipment.
- Extra machinery.
Stash Your Holiday Decorations
Nothing can crowd the garage, the attic, or the basement like holiday decorations. Over the years, it can seem like holiday decor self-replicates. One box of lights or lawn ornaments suddenly becomes two, then three, then four.
If you want to reclaim your home storage space, rent a self-storage 5x5 storage unit for your holiday decorations. This unit can be surprisingly big — depending on its height, it can store five to eight boxes of your decorations. When the holidays are over, pack up your decorations and get them out of sight and out of mind.
Can a Bed Fit Inside a 5x5 Unit?
The answer will depend on the size of your bed and the specific unit you choose. Many twin and full-sized beds will fit into a 5x5 self-storage unit. A queen mattress may fit if the unit is tall enough. It’s a good idea to call your nearest Price Self Storage to ask about their available units.
In all likelihood, a king or California king mattress won’t fit inside a 5x5 unit. You’ll want to look into a 5x10 or 10x10 unit to store larger beds, especially if you also want to store large frames and headboards.
Can a Motorcycle Fit Inside a 5x5 Unit?
We don’t recommend storing a motorcycle in our smallest storage unit size. To ensure your motorcycle has plenty of space and isn’t at risk of getting damaged, we recommend at least a 5x10 unit. If you aren’t sure which sized space is right for you, don’t hesitate to call our concierge service. To help our concierge give you the best answer possible, we encourage you to measure your motorcycle before your call so we know exactly how much space you'll need
How Many Boxes Will Fit Inside a 5x5 Storage Unit?
Though our 5x5 unit is our smallest storage unit, it can still fit a lot of items. When it comes to boxes, the quantity will depend on the unit's height and the size of your boxes. A good rule of thumb is that most 5x5 units will fit five to eight medium-sized boxes. If you take the time to pack as efficiently as possible, you’ll be amazed at how much you can fit in five boxes.
