What do you need to store?

Are you looking for a temporary storage unit to store things while you move, or do you need a more of a long-term solution for items you can’t store at your home? Figure out what you’ll need to store and try to consolidate it into one room to visually see the space you require.

Determine what size unit you’ll need

The following guidelines will help you get a better grasp on what size of storage unit fits what.

From largest to smallest, these units will fit the following:

  • 10 x 30 x 10 = A large home, five to seven bedrooms.
  • 10 x 20 x 10 = Three to four bedrooms.
  • 10 x 15 x 10 = Two to three bedrooms.
  • 10 x 10 x 10 = one bedroom
  • 5 x 10 x 10 = small, one bedroom.
  • 5 x 5 x 10 = Smaller items that fit into a couple of boxes.

It’s important to get an idea of what you’ll need to store and the above storage unit sizes can help assist you when you meet with your storage rental facility. Always double check your items to ensure they don’t need a temperature-controlled unit and ask about the security features the facility offers.
