You can always put a small swarm into a big box.

A 40 liter box is a good general size (you can always compress a small colony using follower boards and have a room to grow).
This is also big enough to dump a good sized swarm into.
This is also big enough to use as a trap.
This also should be small enough for ad-hoc mobile usage (vs. the full sized hive).
Do the dimensional math as per your equipment format.
