Published on 2/2/2023

Choosing the right size self-storage unit can be a tricky task.  You want to ensure that you have enough space to store all your items, but you also don't want to pay for more space than you need. Here are some tips to help you choose the right size unit for your needs:

1.     Make a list of items to be stored: Start by making a list of the items you need to store, including furniture, boxes, appliances, and any other items. This will give you an idea of the volume of items you need to store.

2.     Measure your items: Once you have a list, measure each item, and take note of the dimensions. This will give you a better understanding of how much space you will need.

3.     Consider stacking: You can also consider stacking items if you want to maximize the use of space. For example, you can place boxes on top of furniture to save floor space.

4.     Choose the right unit: We offer several unit sizes, including 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, and 10x25. A 5x5 unit is typically suitable for storing smaller items, while a 10x15 unit can easily accommodate larger items such as furniture and appliances.

5.     Ask for recommendations: If you're not sure what size unit you need, don't hesitate to ask us for recommendations. We have years of experience and can provide you with valuable insights into what size unit would be best for your needs.

6.     Consider future needs: Consider if you might need to store additional items in the future. If so, choose a unit that is slightly larger than what you currently need, so that you have the option to expand.

Choosing the right size self-storage unit requires a little bit of planning and organizing. By using these tips as a guide, you can ensure that you have enough space to store all your items, while also avoiding the cost of renting more space than you need.
