Is there a difference between a 5' x 10' and 10' x 5' (And other examples like it)?

YES! There actually is! Depending on the configuration of a storage facility, units may be built differently to accommodate the different size needs of its community. As a result, units that are 5 x 10 typically mean room is 5 ft wide, and 10 ft deep, while a 10 x 5 unit is 10 ft wide and 5 ft deep. This means you can still fit the same amount of stuff! In most cases as well, a 5' x 10' door is going to be 4' while a 10' x 5' room is going to have an 8' door, meaning a wider opening to help bring your stuff in. Otherwise, it'll just require a different configuration when you’re moving into your unit.
