Can a car fit in a 10x20 storage unit? 

A 10x20 storage unit is suitable for most cars and trucks. But we wouldn’t recommend parking your car in a typical 10x20 self storage unit. Instead, we have dedicated 10x20 vehicle storage units, including enclosed, first-floor units as well as covered and uncovered parking options. A 10x20 vehicle storage unit provides enough space for common vehicles and is specifically designed for both short-term and long-term car storage. 

Before renting a storage unit, check with your local storage facility regarding motor vehicle storage policies. Whether you’re searching for a spot for your weekends-only classic roadster or need space for the family RV, we also offer dedicated vehicle storage options for almost anything with wheels.

Is this the right storage unit size for a three-bedroom house? 

Our 10x20 large storage units are great for multi-room homes, so this sized unit would work well for storing the contents of a three-bedroom home. These units are great if you’re in the process of moving, remodeling or building a new home.

How do you pack a 10x20 storage unit? 

Get the most out of your 10x20 storage unit by taking the time to pack properly. Ensuring that your belongings are thoughtfully packed for storage, allows you to take advantage of every square foot possible. 

When you begin packing, start by cleaning each item. This will help to maintain the condition of your belongings over time. Before your move, box everything you can while labeling boxes. Selecting the right size box will also ensure that you get the most for your space. For your convenience, we offer small, medium and large moving boxes for purchase at your local facility.
