Self Storage Guide
How much space do you need
Because there are so many choices regarding the amount of space, you will have to research all options and decide what the best alternative is for you. Many facilities offer space in a range of sizes. You can rent a space that is the size of a closet, or space the size of a warehouse. Depending on your needs you can choose a smaller space and increase it as your needs grow. You can also start with short term rental and change the terms to longer term, if needed. Even if you have slightly higher costs due to changing the terms, it is still more cost effective than renting something too large, or too long term, when it is not needed. Also, it is usually a simple process to change the terms.
There are a few sources to help you decide which amount of space you need. One very good source is the
self storage provider themselves. They are very experienced in this area and can give you accurate advice. There are also online calculators or estimator systems that will help you decide how much space you need. You can find them on most websites dedicated to self storage.
Some self storage websites will also give you a description of the
storage space so you can visualize the space and assist you in making the decision on how much space you need. If it is possible, it is always a good idea to see the space for yourself before making a decision.
