Frequently asked questions on Storage Size Guide

Deciding on the right size storage unit to rent can be a tricky task. It depends on a number of factors including the items you need to store, the length of time you need to store them, and the amount of space you have available at your home or office. To make the process easier, it’s important to take an inventory of the items you want to store and measure the space they will take up. This will give you a good idea of the size unit you need. You can then compare the available unit sizes at self-storage facilities to determine the one that best suits your needs. Consider renting a larger unit than you think you’ll need as it can provide extra space for future items and also make it easier to move things around.

Some facilities allow you to reserve a space up to a year in advance, while others have more flexible reservation options that allow you to reserve a space as close to your move-in date as possible.

This also ensures that you will have the most time to plan and prepare for your move. When you reserve a space, be sure to ask about the facility’s reservation policies and any associated fees, so you can make an informed decision that works best for you.
