Know the unit size you need and stick to it!


It is important when choosing a self storage facility to know what size you need to store your property and get as close to it as possible. Most standard sizes that mini storage comes in are 5 x 5, 10 x 5, 10 x 10, 10 x 15, 10 x 20, and 10 x 30.  Once you know which size you need and you are shopping for the best location and price, make sure you stick to the size that you feel is closest to the actual space you need.  This is important because if you rent a unit with not enough space, you wont have room for everything you need to store and it will defeat your purpose of renting a storage unit in the first place. However, it is just as important to not get one too large or you will waste money on the unused space. This makes it important to choose a storage location that not only meets your needs for cleanliness, security, and access, but also one that actually has the particular size you need available when you need it. Sometimes storage management will try to talk you into a bigger size than what you actually need by offering a good deal or cheaper rate than normal, but be careful not to get pushed into a size that is not right for you because of particular facilities availability. You want your self storage to accommodate you, not the other way around. After all, you’re the one paying for a service here, right? There are plenty of mini storages out there and you want one that cares about getting you the storage space that actually fits your needs. Find out what size that is and stick to it!
