When picking out your storage unit, the size is of the utmost importance. If you rent a storage unit too big, you lose money on the space you don’t utilize. However, if your unit is too small, you lose space to store your items. If you do decide not to store as many items, how can you be sure a mini storage unit is the right choice? Well, here are some things to consider before making that choice:
The biggest question when it comes to finding the right storage unit is: how much space do you need? How many items are you planning to store and what are their dimensions? Mini storage units are usually about the size of a small walk-in closet and can hold basic furniture items, appliances and outdoor equipment. When moving into your unit, be aware that many items rely on ventilation to stay odor-free and in good condition. It is never a good idea to fill your unit up to its complete holding capacity, so if the mini storage unit is barely big enough to hold your items, it is a smart idea to upgrade your storage space.
If you are not accessing your storage regularly, then there might not be a reason to buy a bigger storage unit. Many people use their units to store seasonal decorations as well as outdated clothing items, so they require more room to be able to work and sort through the items in their unit. However, if you do not think you will access the unit on a regular or seasonal basis, we recommend sizing the unit down to help you save money.
How much are you willing to spend?
Another factor in choosing the right storage unit is the cost. More space costs more money, which here at Beltline and Security Storalls, we understand that might play a deciding factor in your final decision. Mini storage units tend to be the cheapest of the unit sizes we offer, so as space increases price will also increase from there.
