Calculating storage unit size based on truck load

So, you have your moving truck packed and you're headed to one of our storage facilities surrounding the twin cities in Minnesota to unload it into your brand new storage unit. You have a couple of key pieces of information, but you still can’t figure out what size storage unit you need.

a) You know the size of the truck but you have no idea what size storage unit you need. Or,

b) Your moving company tells you that you have a 7,000 pound truck load but when you go to reserve your storage unit online your options are 5’x5′, 10’x10′, 10’x20′, etc.

Now, this is quite a math equation.
