Choosing the Right Storage Unit

To choose the right storage unit, it is a good idea to know what types of units are available and what they are typically used for. At LoknStore, we provide the following types of self-storage solutions:

Small Units (25 – 50 sq. ft)

A small storage unit can range from the size of a small walk-in closet to a large bathroom. They are often used to store miscellaneous items or furnishings from one average room. A small storage unit is typically used to store:

  • Small furniture
  • Twin mattresses
  • Small dressers
  • Seasonal décor and items
  • Small items in stackable boxes

Medium Units (50 – 150 sq. ft)

A medium unit is often the size of an average bedroom, though some can be a bit larger. They can be used to store furnishings for residences ranging from 750-1,000 sq. ft. A medium storage unit is typically used to store:

  • Appliances
  • Tables and chairs
  • Bedroom sets
  • Sports & outdoor equipment
  • Living room furniture

Large Units (150 – 300 sq. ft)

Large storage units can be as large as a one car garage or 2-3 bedrooms. They can be used to store furnishings from an entire 2-bedroom home that is around 1,500 sq. ft in size. A large storage unit is often used to store:

  • Washer/dryer sets
  • Couches, loveseats, and recliners
  • Multiple bedroom sets
  • Large dressers or appliances
