How large of a unit will you need?
Estimating how much space you will need for your storage items can be simple if you know what you want to store. Here are some simple steps to help you plan. Size recommendations based on commonly-stored items.

Step 1: Start by making a list of the items you plan to store.

Step 2: Group the items according to how you will organize them.
Start by identifying items that will be packed in boxes and stacked. Next, prioritize boxed items you will want to access most frequently (they’ll go closer to the front of the unit). Then group by fragility or weight – heavier, sturdier items should be stored on the bottom of stacked items, fragile items on top. Then consider awkwardly-sized items that won’t stack well, including how often you will need to use them, and how heavy they are.

Step 3: Make note of how these items will be packed and organized.
Boxes and containers should be of uniform size, and should be stacked no more than three- or four-high, depending on the size and strength of the containers you use. Our customers often use heavy-duty plastic stackable drawers for easy access to stored items.

Do not worry.  If you do not have enough room in your first unit, we will rent you an additional smaller unit.  There is a $5.00 discount for each additional storage unit.
