Steps for Picking the Right Storage Unit

Picking the Right Storage Unit

A self-storage unit can be used for a wide variety of needs. Whether you’re a business professional needing file storage space, a spring-cleaner decluttering your home, or just in need of seasonal storage, a self-storage unit can be useful. Finding the right unit for your price range and needs can be difficult so here are the three steps for picking the right storage unit that you need to know.

Step One: Consider Contents

The first step in finding what storage unit can best suit your needs is determining what exactly you’ll store. Regardless if it’s old clothes, furniture, comic books, or whatever else you can imagine, gathering all of these items to realize the amount of space it will take to pack them is vital. This will directly affect how much space you’ll need to purchase to guarantee everything fits.

Step Two: Determine Size

If you’re packing a small bedroom’s worth of items, you can easily fit in everything with ample space; however, if you pack haphazardly, your unit’s storage effectiveness greatly diminishes. Consider this: when packing, understand how to pack a storage unit effectively. If your belongings are thrown about the unit with no order, the packing space becomes obsolete.

For those considering parking spots for boats, RVs, or cars, it is necessary to know your vehicle’s measurements before taking an enclosed space. Is your space wide or long enough? Can my vehicle fit in the covered parking? These factors play a role if you should even consider renting the space. You’ll want to easily get in and out of the vehicle so that it can be transported when necessary. Utilize our storage guide to best determine what will best suit your needs.
