There are a lot of questions to consider when shopping for a storage unit. Where is the unit located? What kind of things are you going to be storing? Do you need temperature control? By far the most important question to consider is – how much space to I actually need?
Storage needs vary widely from person to person. The first thing you need to do is take an inventory of all the items you are going to be storing. It helps if you can measure some of the larger items while you are doing this. Don’t forget to measure in all three dimensions: height, length, and width! No that you know what you have we can start talking about storage unit sizes.
