Moving and storage calculator tools
The right amount of container space can vary depending on how much stuff you have and the size of certain items. Our calculator gives you a more accurate idea of which size or combination of sizes you’ll need. Be sure to include the contents of all rooms and spaces. Don't forget the garage, attic, basement, and closets. And remember, you can stack your belongings inside your unit.
Please note this calculator isn’t optimized for mobile and is best used on a desktop computer.

Remember that this matrix is an estimate only. Larger items and how efficiently the container is loaded will significantly impact the required size and quantity of containers. When considering square footage, remember to include any area that has items you'll be loading, such as your patio, basement, garage, and attic. Please note that the 12-foot unit is for in-town moving only. For longer distance moves, select the 16- or 8-foot sizes*.
*Dimensions are based on exterior measurements. Container sizes may vary slightly.
