Picking the Right Sized Unit in Salinas
Our storage units range in size from 5 feet by 5 feet to 10 feet by 30 feet, so it's important to know how to pick the right sized storage unit for your needs. You don't want to shove everything you own into a smaller unit and damage your belongings, but you don't want to pay for an extensive amount of extra room either. How can you determine the right storage unit sizes for your items?
How Much Space Do I Need?
The size of the area you need is proportionate to the items you plan on putting in the unit. You also want to take into account items that you may be storing in the foreseeable future. For example, you may need to store a small mattress set, a chest of drawers and a few packed boxes. In this case, a 5x5 unit would provide sufficient space. However, if you need to store furniture from a seven-bedroom house, you may need a 10x30.
Make a list of the items you plan on putting into the space. By using the measurements of the boxes and items, you can get a rough idea of the square footage you'll need. Next, create a strategy of how everything will be packed into the unit itself. Remember to keep heavier items on the bottom and more frequently used boxes in the front for easier access. These are only a few self storage tips that can save you a great deal of time and energy when loading the moving truck or storage unit.
