Learn More About 5x10 Storage Unit Types, Sizes, and What Fits Inside

How big is a 5x10 unit exactly?

We are glad you asked. A 5x10 unit is 5 feet in width and 10 feet in length, which gives you about 50 square feet of room. When comparing the size of the unit to something in your home, you can think of this size unit equivalent to a walk-in closet. While you do have a floor space of 50 square feet of room, some storage units come with ceilings that are 8 foot in height, which means you can stack boxes and bins. If you rent a 5x10 unit with an 8-foot-high ceiling, you have approximately 400 cubic feet of space.

What would fit inside of a 5x10 self-storage unit?

Having an idea of what you can store inside of a 5x10 unit can help you determine if this size unit is right for you. A 5x10 unit can hold a variety of items such as a twin, full, or queen size mattress, twin to full bedroom furniture, bicycles, large appliances such as a refrigerator or a stove, office furniture such as computers and desks, and multiple boxes and bins.

Can I store lawn equipment in a 5x10 storage unit?

Yes. In fact, a 5x10 self-storage unit is a good option for seasonal items and items such as lawn equipment. Within your unit, you could store a lawnmower, blower, weed eater, and any other equipment you may use.

How many boxes can I expect to fit inside of my 5x10 unit?

It depends. In general, you can expect to fit about 20 large boxes within the unit. It is important to keep in mind the size of the box too. You should also keep in mind that while you have floor space, you can also stack the boxes on top of each other to store even more items.

Are there items that are banned from being stored in a 5x10 unit?

As with any size unit, there are items that are banned from being stored within them. As always, you want to check with the specific location that you plan to rent the unit from to learn more about their policies and what you can and cannot store. In general, you should not store food, batteries, explosives, live animals, live plants, or flammable items within the storage unit. If you are concerned about an item that you want to store, we suggest that you reach out to one of our customer service specialists for assistance.

Does a 5x10 unit come with drive-up access?

Yes. Most storage units offer an outdoor drive-up access option for you to choose from. Drive-up units are common because they offer a lot of convenience to the renter. For instance, with a drive-up unit, you can pull right up to the door to unload and load your items whereas with an indoor unit, you cannot do this. Many renters like the option of drive-up access but it is important to remember that a drive-up unit is outdoors, which means it does not have protection from extreme weather changes.

Can I fit a scooter or motorcycle inside my 5x10 unit?

Yes. A 5x10 storage unit is excellent for both a scooter and a motorcycle with room to spare. If you want to store a scooter or motorcycle, it is important to check with the storage facility first to see if you need to meet any additional requirements for storage. For example, at our facility, the motor vehicle needs to have the proper tags, registration, and insurance. Also, we require that the scooter or motorcycle be in working condition.

I am worried that I will easily use up the room inside of the 5x10 unit. Do I have other options?

Yes. Many customers worry about the size of the unit they choose. Fortunately, you can check out the size of the unit before you rent it, but should you rent a unit and need to upgrade or downgrade, you can. As a rule of thumb, if you think you might use up all the room in the unit, you should upgrade to the next size up.

Will I always have access to my 5x10 unit?

In most cases, yes. If you want to be able to access your unit 24 hours a day, you will need to look for a storage facility location that offers this amenity. Not all of them do. If you choose a facility location that does not have 24-hour access, take note of the times the facility is open. In general, these facilities offer convenient hours, which include early opening and late closing.
