Storage Unit Size Guide

Below is a table of our storage unit sizes. The sizes represent the approximate floor area in feet. The height of the storage units are room height or taller. There are NO stairs to climb to access your storage unit.

If you find it difficult to estimate the amount of space you need, consider the following comparisons:

  • 5 x 5 is like a closet or half bathroom
  • 5 x 10 is like a walk-in closet, or pickup truck/cargo van
  • 10 x 10 is like an average size bedroom
  • 10 x 20 is like a single car garage or a 20′ moving van

TIP: To help visualize the size of the storage units, try measuring a room in your own home or apartment. Click HERE for a table of standard furniture dimensions.

It’s important to note that the unit sizes are approximate and for comparison purposes only. One reason for this is that the wall thickness varies at each location and will affect the inside dimensions of the storage space. We do not rent units by the square foot, and our rental rates are not based on square-foot measurements.

I would definitely recommend renting a spot at West Towne Self Storage.

"I rented the perfect size storage room for a full year after I sold my condo and rented an apartment for a year. I chose the climate controlled space and all my items were in perfect condition one year later. Kurt the owner is absolutely wonderful. Very professional and keeps his properties very clean and orderly. Always very helpful and quick to respond if you need anything. I would definitely recommend renting a spot at West Towne Self Storage."

Needed storage for the next day, and he made it happen!

"Kurt was Amazing! I called in a panic. Needed storage for the next day, and he made it happen! He was super helpful, and willing to work with me possible leaving before the shippers could get my stuff. Luckily, with his help, it all worked out. Great place/folks/service!"

— Robin M.

I can't recommend his business enough!

"I rented a storage unit from Kurt for several years. He always answered or returned phone calls very quickly and was super helpful when I had a question or problem. I can't recommend his business enough!"

— Calvin F.

Kurt made the process so easy.

"I've never rented a storage unit before but Kurt made the process so easy.
He was very easy to get a hold of, explained the contract well and was super responsive. The unit itself was super clean, a great size and very easily accessible. If we ever need another unit I'd rent from Kurt at West Towne Self Storage in a heartbeat.

— Becky S.

Customer service was what sold me on them!

"Customer service was what sold me on them! They were easy to work with and pretty good about communicating. Air conditioned storage was also a plus, and getting in and out of the unit was easy. Next time I need a storage unit in Madison, I'm going with West Towne Self Storage again."
