Oakley Self Storage 5x5 Storage Unit Size Video

5 x 5

A 5x5 storage unit is the size of a small closet.

This unit size fits furnishings of a small bedroom, including a small mattress set, a dresser, a TV, and several small to medium-sized boxes.  It is also perfect for document storage and seasonal decorations.  Sporting equipment such as snowboards, waterskis, wakeboards, and fishing gear are other great uses for this small storage unit size. For additional protection, climate controlled storage units are also available at our self storage facility in this unit size.

TIP: Group your boxes by sturdiness or weight, placing heavier and sturdier boxes on the bottom, and more fragile items on top.  You can maximize space by using a portable shelving system, or stacking boxes on sturdy furniture.
