Tips for selecting the size of storage unit

Storage ContainersMost clients focus on the expense of the storage unit and give little consideration to the impact the storage unit will have on the expense of transferring your house into it. Choice of a storage unit can save a substantial amount of money, time and work. One of the primary considerations is in selecting the size of storage Units which you’ll need. As a rough estimate, a very little one bedroom flat with no appliances will fit in a 5’x10′ storage unit, a normal 1 bedroom plus a small 2 bedroom flat with no appliances, will fit in a 10’x10′ storage unit, plus a typical 2000 square foot home will fit in a 10’x20′ storage unit. You’ll need to adjust these sizes based on the quantity of stuff you have. More detailed estimates are also available as given in the author’s bio below.

Another factor in choosing a storage unit is the Kind of storage unit to select. Conventional storage units typically come in two styles; temperature controlled storage units that are inside of a garage and building design storage units. Temperature controlled storage units offer a better environment for your own property. However, they require labour to move in and out of. Your items must be loaded from the moving automobile to a cart, taken an elevator up, and then put in the storage unit. If you’re choosing a mover, the time necessary to load/unload your house can easily double for a temperature controlled storage unit.

In more urban areas the garage design storage units tend to cost more than the temperature controlled units and in more rural areas the garage design storage units tend to cost less. In case you have very little to shop, the more compact Flat Pack Storage Units are generally temperature controlled and this is recommended since the effort required to execute your move is relatively small. If you intend to store your items a temperature controlled unit is advised. Extreme temperatures can be quite hard on your premises, particularly your furniture, if stored for a protracted length of time. Moreover, if you have antique furniture, fine art, or items which will melt/freeze these things should be kept in a temperature controlled environment.
