How to Find the Right Size of Self-Storage Unit

Selecting the appropriate size self-storage unit can be a time and cost-saving decision.

By opting for the right size, you only pay for the space essential to accommodate your belongings. The right unit size avoids time wasting rummaging through a cluttered or a disorganised storage unit, resulting in a more efficient and economical storage solution.

Assessing your storage needs is the crucial first step in determining the right size storage unit for your requirements. It’s essential to evaluate the specific items you plan to store and measure how much space each of your belongings will occupy.

When considering furniture and household items, it’s necessary to factor in the dimensions of larger pieces such as sofas and beds. Remember that disassembling these items can significantly save space and optimise storage efficiency.  Consideration also needs to be given the the possibility of stacking items in your storage unit so that the full volume of the storage units rented is used optimally.

For sports equipment and hobby items, it’s important to assess the volume of gear you possess. Items like bicycles and camping gear may demand more space compared to other hobbies. Allocate sufficient room to ensure that all your equipment can be stored in an organised manner, facilitating easy access whenever needed.

If you intend to store business equipment and archives, take into account the quantity and dimensions of documents and machinery. Ensure that the storage space allows for convenient access to documents and orderly arrangement of equipment to streamline your business operations effectively. By thoroughly assessing your storage needs across different categories, you can make informed decisions about the size of the self-storage unit that best fits your requirements.

Maximising Storage Space: Effective Tips

More space than you think flexistore self-storage size guide

Proper Organisation and Placement

To optimise the use of your storage unit, strategic organisation is key. Begin by placing the heaviest items at the bottom and stacking lighter boxes and belongings on top. Utilise the vertical space by stacking items as high as possible while ensuring stability and safety.

Use Shelves and Storage Boxes

Integrating shelves and storage boxes can significantly enhance organisation and maximise available space in your storage unit. Choose transparent boxes to easily identify contents and label each box for quick reference. The Flexistore App has an inventory feature to keep a photographic inventory of the items stored with the ability to add notes about what the contents of boxes in your unit contain. 

In Conclusion

Selecting the right size storage unit is fundamental for a seamless storage experience. By assessing your unique storage needs and referring to a size guide, you can identify a solution that aligns with your requirements and budget. Remember, effective organisation and placement techniques are vital for maximising space and ensuring easy access to your belongings whenever needed.
