However, with several sizes available, choosing the best one for your needs may be difficult. If you pick a unit that’s too large, you’ll end up paying for unused space. On the other hand, you want to ensure you have a unit that has enough room. Here are some tips to help you determine which size of storage unit will suit your needs.

Measure Your Belongings

Take inventory of all of the belongings you’ll be storing so you can identify how much space you’ll need. Then, measure those items. Start with the largest items first, such as bookshelves, furniture, and mattresses.

To determine how much space you’ll need for boxes, multiply the length by the width and the height of one box, and then multiply that number by how many total boxes you have.

There is no right or wrong way to measure your items for an accurate storage unit size. For example, you can identify your largest items, and if they exceed the storage units measurements it means you need to size up, or you can place all your items in a pile together and measure around the stack to identify a suitable unit size.

Check Your Storage Unit Options

After measuring your belongings, you’ll want to select the appropriately sized storage unit. At Storage Works, you can browse available storage units conveniently from your phone, tablet, or PC.
