If you want to hang on to your things without having to hang out with them, the right storage unit can provide you with the extra space you need. Most storage units are priced according to size, so it’s important to have a clear idea of just how much room you will need. Consider these steps to help you select the right storage unit size for your things.
Note Types, Quantities and Sizes of Your Items
Make a list of everything you plan to put in the unit. You will want to measure all large and bulky items like appliances and furniture. Determine which of your belongings can be placed in boxes, and calculate approximately how much space you expect them to occupy.
Consult General Storage Guides
Review guides for standard storage unit sizes that provide lists for the types and quantities of items a space can usually accommodate. Determine which size unit is most appropriate based on the items you plan to store.
Create a Storage Unit Blueprint
If you want to be more thorough, draw to scale a basic map of the storage unit and sketch the items to be stored into the area based on their dimensions. Note any items that can be stacked or placed on their sides to free up additional space.
