One of the first things to think about is the size of the storage unit(s) you’ll need. A very small one bedroom apartment with no appliances will fit in a 5’x10′ storage unit, a standard 1 bedroom or small 2 bedroom apartment with no appliances will fit in a 10’x10′ storage unit, and a typical 2000 square foot house will fit in a 10’x20′ storage unit, according to a rough calculation. Depending about how much stuff you have, you’ll have to change the sizes.

The type of storage unit to choose is the second factor to consider when choosing a storage unit. Traditional storage units are divided into two types: inside-building temperature-controlled storage units and garage-style storage units. Temperature-controlled storage units are better for your property’s climate. However, moving in and out of them usually necessitates a lot more effort. Your belongings must be loaded into a cart, transported by elevator, and then stored in the storage unit. If you hire a mover, the time it takes to load and unload your property for a temperature-controlled storage unit will easily double.
The type of storage unit recommended is determined by four factors: 1.) the amount of items to be stored, 2.) the type of items to be stored, 3.) the length of time to be stored, and 4.) the relative cost of each type of unit. Garage style storage units are more expensive in more urban areas than temperature controlled units, whereas garage style storage units are less expensive in more rural areas. If you only have a few items to store, the smaller storage units are usually temperature regulated, which is recommended because the effort required to complete your move is minimal.
A temperature-controlled device is also recommended if you choose to store your products for more than three months. When stored for an extended period of time, extreme temperatures can be very damaging to your property, especially your furniture. Furthermore, any antique furniture, fine art, or objects that can melt or freeze should be kept in a temperature-controlled setting. A garage-style storage unit may be used for most other storage needs and would usually be less costly or save a considerable amount of time.
