When working with The Lock Up Self Storage, we make sure that you’re treated like family. Whether this is your first-time using storage or you’re a returning renter, we’ll help you better understand everything you need to know about our 5' x 10' self storage units.

5' x 10' Storage Unit Sizing and General Information

How Big is a 5' x 10' Self Storage Unit?

These storage units measure 5 feet wide by 10 feet long, which gives you a total of 50 square feet available for your storage needs. Some of our facilities provide units with high ceilings, which allows you to utilize vertical storage that exponentially increases your cubic storage space. Our 5' x 10' self storage unit is similar to the size of an average walk-in closet.

Can I Bring Shelving to Organize my Unit?

Absolutely! If you’re going to be storing boxes, books, vinyl records, or other items that can easily fit on a shelving unit, then having it available is a great way to make the most of your space. Just make sure that whatever shelves you have will fit inside of your unit.

What’s the Difference Between Indoor 5' x 10' Self Storage Units and Outdoor Units?

The difference between the two can vary. While there are some storage facilities that have outdoor storage for vehicles or boats, these terms are often used to describe how a self storage unit is accessed. The Lock Up Self Storage utilizes indoor 5' x 10' self storage units, which give a greater degree of control for weather and security. This means that the door will be on the inside, accessible through a hallway. Outdoor units have a door to the outside, which can increase the risk of pests, climate problems, and security issues.

Storage Capacity for a 5' x 10' Self Storage Unit

What Fits in a 5' x 10' Self Storage Unit?

You’ll be able to fit the contents of roughly one room of furniture in your 5' x 10' self storage unit. This includes several small to medium size boxes, mattresses, chairs, and sports equipment. If you’re only going to use your 5' x 10' unit to store moving boxes, you can expect to fit up to 20 boxes of varying sizes. Use strategic packing techniques to get the most out of your storage space.

Can a King or Queen Bed Fit in a 5' x 10' Self Storage Unit?

Due to the dimensions of a 5' x 10' self storage unit, both a king and a queen mattress can fit inside. You can actually store a king mattress and the included box spring with room to spare.

Is This the Right Storage Size for a One-Bedroom Apartment?

Depending on the contents of your home, you may be able to utilize a 5' x 10' storage unit for a one-bedroom apartment. However, if you have a lot of furniture, you will be better off using a larger size. The contents of a small studio apartment should fit, but you’ll want to take measurements beforehand to make sure you’re utilizing the right size unit. It’s better to allow extra room in your unit than to overstuff it.

Pricing and Availability for 5' x 10' Self Storage Units

Do I Need a 5' x 10' Temperature Controlled Self Storage Unit?

In most cases, it’s better to use a 5' x 10' temperature-controlled storage unit than traditional units. While some facilities charge a little more for this feature, it’s worth it if what you’re storing is valuable, antique, or hold sentimental value. Artwork, electronics, computers, books, musical instruments, textiles or clothing, wine, and wood items should be stored in a climate controlled self storage unit.

What is the Average Price of a 5' x 10' Self Storage Unit?

The price for a 5' x 10' self storage unit will vary depending on location and availability. Climate controlled units tend to be a little more expensive and pricing can differ for indoor vs. outdoor access. However, it’s important to keep in mind that when it comes to self storage, you get what you pay for.
