Choosing the Right Storage Unit Size for Your Needs

Choosing the Right Storage Unit Size for Your Needs: A Simple Guide

Choosing the right storage unit size can make all the difference when it comes to storing your belongings safely and efficiently. Whether you’re decluttering your home, moving, or need extra space for your business, finding the perfect fit is important.

At Holy Hill Self Storage, we understand that selecting the perfect unit size can be overwhelming. We’re here to help simplify the process and ensure you find a unit that fits your needs perfectly. Here are some tips on how to choose the right storage unit size.

Assess What You Need to Store

Start by taking inventory of the items you plan to store. Are you storing furniture, boxes of seasonal decorations, or maybe a mix of both?

Here’s a quick guide to help you visualize what can fit in different unit sizes:

Small Units (5×5, 5×10)
  • 5×5: Think of a small walk-in closet. This size is ideal for storing boxes, small pieces of furniture, seasonal decorations, or sports equipment.
  • 5×10: Roughly the size of a large walk-in closet, this unit can hold the contents of a small bedroom, including a queen-sized mattress, dresser, TV, and several boxes.
Medium Units (10×10, 10×15)
  • 10×10: About half the size of a standard one-car garage. This unit is perfect for the contents of a one-bedroom apartment, such as appliances, furniture, and numerous boxes.
  • 10×15: Slightly larger, fitting the contents of a large one-bedroom apartment or a small two-bedroom apartment, including larger furniture, appliances, and boxes.
Large Units (10×20, 10×30)
  • 10×20: This size can accommodate the contents of a multi-bedroom house, including large furniture, appliances, and plenty of boxes. It’s also suitable for business inventory or equipment.
  • 10×30: The size of a standard two-car garage, this unit can store the contents of a larger home or be used for storing vehicles, boats, or large business inventories.

Choosing the Right Storage Unit Size

Consider Your Access Needs

Think about how often you’ll need to access your storage unit. If you plan to visit frequently, you might want a slightly larger unit to allow for easier movement and organization. At Holy Hill Self Storage, we offer 24 hour / 7 days a week facility access, making it easy for you to get to your items when you need them.

Leave Some Wiggle Room

It’s always a good idea to leave a bit of extra space for future items. You might find that you accumulate more things over time or need to store unexpected items. Having a bit of extra room ensures you’re not cramming things in, which can make accessing your items more difficult.

Think About the Climate

If you have items that are sensitive to temperature or humidity, such as electronics, documents, or wooden furniture, consider a climate-controlled unit. These units help protect your belongings from extreme weather conditions, ensuring they stay in great shape.

Maximizing Space

  1. Efficient Packing and Labeling: Pack your items in sturdy boxes and label each one clearly. This will help you keep track of your belongings and make retrieval easier.
  2. Use Shelves and Vertical Space: Shelving units can help you maximize vertical space, keeping your unit organized and accessible. Stack boxes and items strategically to make the most of every inch.
