Choosing storage space to fit your present needs, as well as your future needs, is one of the more important decisions facing anyone in need of mini storage.  That, and cost, are the two major factors in choose self storage, so let’s talk about your needs in this article.  For more information you can call (817) 439-1380.  We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and our whole gig is helping you!

Let’s start with the smallest self storage unit!

The smallest self storage unit available is a 5×5, or a 25 square foot unit.  That is pretty standard in the self storage business, no matter where you are located.  A 5×5 can handle one room of furniture from a house, or it can handle a fair amount of odds and ends if you stack wisely.  Remember that you are also renting vertical space in a storage unit, so a 5×5 is not only 25 square feet of floor space, but also eight to ten feet of vertical space above that floor space.  Packaging becomes important when you consider stacking possibilities.

What other sizes are there in mini storage units?

From the 5×5 you just move on up on space options, 5×10, 10×10, and so on, depending on which self storage company you are working with.  At Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, our largest storage unit is 10×25, or 250 square feet of floor space, which is adequate for storing furniture for a six bedroom home.

So, first consideration, what do you need?

How can you make sure of the space you need?  We like the old-fashioned method of measuring the items you need to store.  If you have five pieces of furniture and a few odds and ends, put that furniture side-by-side and measure it.  Will you need to add a few pieces to storage in the next few months? Add that to your calculations.  You certainly want to consider the future so that you don’t have to move everything to a larger storage unit in six months, so plan wisely.

After you have decided the storage space you need, you can then turn your attention to costs, location of the mini storage center, and any other amenities you might need, like electricity or climate controlled storage.
