If you’re planning a move this spring or summer, you may be realizing that you’ve accumulated lots of extra things that you now need to store. Whether you’re looking for short or long-term storage, you may need help deciding what size storage unit will best fit your needs. Fortunately, there are a few simple tips that can help you choose the right storage unit.
Make a List
The first thing you want to do is to make an inventory list of all the items you plan to store. Take measurements to help determine the packing size of each item, and then identify any belongings that you will need to access frequently while in storage.
Know Your Options
Once you have a good idea of the number of items you need to store, look at our self-storage unit guide to help determine which size is the best fit. Storage units range in size from small 5′ x 5′ units all the way up to 10′ x 30′, which are approximately 300 square feet.
Determine the Time Frame
If you plan to store your items for a long period, you may want to choose a larger unit that provides extra space for adequate ventilation. On the other hand, if you only need a storage unit for a month or so, and you don’t think you’ll need to access any of the items during that time, you may choose a smaller unit and simply pack things closer together.
