Finding the Perfect Fit: How to Determine the Proper Size of Your Storage Unit Rental

Introduction: Whether you’re downsizing, decluttering, or in the midst of a move, renting a storage unit can provide valuable extra space to store your belongings. However, one of the most common dilemmas people face when renting a storage unit is figuring out what size unit they actually need. Renting a unit that’s too small can lead to cramped conditions and difficulty accessing your items, while renting a unit that’s too large can mean wasting money on unused space. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the process of determining the proper size of your storage unit rental, so you can find the perfect fit for your needs.

Assess Your Storage Needs: The first step in determining the right size storage unit is to assess your storage needs. Take an inventory of the items you plan to store, including furniture, boxes, appliances, and any other large or bulky items. Be thorough in your inventory to ensure you have an accurate understanding of the volume of items you need to store.

Consider Accessibility: Think about how often you’ll need to access your stored items. If you anticipate needing frequent access, you’ll want to make sure there’s enough space to move around comfortably within the unit. Opting for a slightly larger unit can make it easier to access your belongings without having to shuffle items around each time you visit.

Factor in Future Needs: While it’s important to rent a storage unit that meets your current needs, it’s also a good idea to consider any future storage needs you may have. If you anticipate acquiring more items or if your storage needs are likely to change over time, it may be worth renting a slightly larger unit to accommodate future growth.

Use Online Tools and Calculators: Many storage facilities offer online tools and size calculators to help customers determine the appropriate unit size. These tools typically allow you to input the items you plan to store, and then recommend a unit size based on your input. While these tools can be helpful, it’s still a good idea to use them in conjunction with your own assessment of your storage needs.  The professionals at Storage at Summerlin are ready to assist you today!
