Five by five. Five by ten. Ten by ten. Ten by fifteen. Ten by twenty. Ten by thirty. Whatever storage unit size you’re looking at, you'll always be surprised by what you can fit inside. Whether it’s a lot of something small or just one very big thing, storage units are capable of holding more than you’d think

Here are eight things you’d be surprised can (and will) totally fit in a storage unit:

A car. 

Whether you drive a Geo Metro or a Hummer, there are storage units capable of storing your baby. Many companies offer drive-up unit options you can roll up to and into with ease. Whether you want to store your car for the winter or for the next decade, you’ve got options.

A boat.

Putting your boat in storage saves the average owner a lot of driveway or garage space. A typical boat can fit in a 10 by 25 foot storage unit comfortably. Your exact needs will depend on the size of the boat itself. You might need to look into specialty storage if you own a life-size replica of the RMS Titanic.

Approximately 79,764 Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supremes.

No, really. We did the math. Your typical Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell is 7  inches in diameter and one inch tall. If you were renting a 10 by 30 foot storage unit, you’d be able to fit 17 Crunchwraps across and 51 down. Multiply those two numbers and they add up to 867 Crunchwraps in a single layer. You then have to take the height into consideration. An average storage unit is eight feet tall. That's 96 inches. Multiply 92 by 867 and you get 79,764. That’s a lot of refried beans.

The contents of your entire home.

You don't need as much space as you might think to store the entire contents of your home. If you need to “Tetris” all your possessions into a single space for some reason, then you're in luck. Obviously, your exact needs are hard to predict here, but on average you’ll find a storage unit surprisingly capable of handling the task. For example, you could fit the contents of an average one bedroom home into a 10 x 10 unit. If your home has two to three bedrooms, it's contents can fit into a 10 x 15 foot unit.

An RV.

You heard that right. Indoor RV storage exists. You could drive your home-on-wheels into a unit and store it until the next time you need it. This might seem silly to some people. After all, why don't you just keep it in the driveway or your backyard? First, RVs are big. Second, they're valuable. Protect your investment from nature, thieves, and damage with covered storage.

Your super delicate art collection.

Art doesn’t take up a lot of space. When we’re talking about “fit” this time, we’re talking about how a storage unit can “fit” your needs. Many storage companies offer twenty-four hour security and climate-controlled storage units. These two things go hand in hand for anyone looking to share delicate - and potentially valuable - items, like art.

A literal rocket.

Rockets aren't small and they definitely aren't easy to store--but that doesn't mean you can't do it! On television show Auction Hunters back in 2011, two of the show's stars bid on a unit where they found some incredible memorabilia inside including both a NASA countdown clock and an actual rocket, authenticated by experts to be the real deal.
