WHAT SIZE UNIT?

One of the hardest decisions you'll be faced with when choosing a self-storage facility is how much space you need.

  • Unit size determines price and there are lots to choose from. Units range in size from a box to a small locker or a large garage to a small warehouse.
  • Choose one too small and you’ll be facing the moving blues, too big and you'll be wasting your hard earned dollars.
  • When picking a facility ensure that you choose one that will allow you to transfer between units, without hidden costs or added expenses.

  • There are a variety of tips that will help you with the process:
  • Measure the length, width and height of the largest item you need to store. This will show you the smallest unit size you could take.
  • If you're storing the entire contents of your house let the storage provider know how many bedrooms you have, as this is a good indicator of space needed.
  • If you're storing everything in boxes, tell the self-storage facility the size of box and how many you have they can make an estimate based on this.
