How Do I Determine the Right Storage Unit Size for My Needs?

The key to selecting the right storage unit size lies in accurately assessing the volume and types of items you intend to store. Begin by listing everything you plan to put into storage, such as furniture, boxes, and any unique or large items. Also, think ahead about any additional items you may accumulate, as your storage needs could grow. Ideally, you should opt for a unit that not only fits all your items but also allows some extra space for easy access and organization. Storage Sense professionals are ready to help you at our locations nationwide, providing personalized advice to meet your specific storage requirements.

When it comes to vehicle storage, the size of the parking space is crucial to accommodate different types of vehicles appropriately. Our vehicle storage parking spots typically start at 10’x20’, which is ideal for standard cars and motorcycles. For larger vehicles such as RVs, boats, and trailers, spaces extend to 10’x30’ and beyond.
