This is a popular size of unit with students and other people who are on the move but who are not yet old enough to have accumulated much stuff. Because a mattress could fit on the floor in one of these you might be wondering if you could sleep here—be warned that you can’t, under no circumstances!
The second-smallest unit size generally available is 5′ x 10′, which has the dimensions of a regular walk-in closet or perhaps a small utility room. With the regular ceiling height you would get a total of 400 cubic feet of space.
Larger items of furniture can be put into a unit of this size. The contents of an average-sized bedroom—chairs, lamps, a dresser and a queen-size bed— can be put in here if they are stacked carefully. Or it could hold 10-15 medium-sized boxes, and the space is also good for bicycles.
The rent on such a unit might cost between $45 and $124, depending on where it is located, while a climate-controlled unit could set you back from $70 to $132. According to Yardi Matrix, the average monthly street rate across the US for a storage unit of this type would be around $70.
