Choosing the Right Storage Unit Size for Your Belongings

What can I store in a 10x10 storage unit?

A 10x10 storage unit, roughly equivalent to the size of a standard bedroom, offers ample space for storing the contents of a one-bedroom apartment or a small office.  Items that fit well in the size unit include furniture like sofas, chairs, and dressers, along with boxes of personal belongings, small appliances, electronics, and seasonal items.  It’s also suitable for storing business inventory, records, or files.

What items are suitable for a 10x20 storage unit?
A 10x20 storage unit provides even more space and is ideal for storing larger items or the contents of a multi-bedroom home.  You can comfortably store furniture sets, appliances big or small, large boxes, sporting equipment, garage items, and even vehicles like motorcycles, ATVs, or small boats.  Additionally, seasonal decorations, business inventory, or excess belongings during a move can easily find a place in this size unit. 

How do I decide between a 10x10 and 10x20 unit?
Choosing between a 10x10 and 10x20 storage unit depends on the volume and size of items you plan to store.  If you have the equivalent of a single bedroom’s worth of belongings, a 10x10 unit is likely sufficient.  However, if you have larger furniture pieces, contents of a multi-bedroom space, or your items include valuables you do not want to risk damaging with stacking, a 10x20 unit would be more appropriate.  Assessing your storage needs and items’ dimensions will help you make the right choice. 

Can I store vehicles in these units?
Yes, both a 10x10 and a 10x20 unit can accommodate vehicles, but the choice depends on the type and size of the vehicle.  A 10x10 is suitable for motorcycles, while a 10x20 unit can house small boats, ATVs, or even a compact car.  Ensure you measure your vehicle’s dimensions and factor in extra space for maneuvering when considering the 100 vs 200 square footage. 

How do I optimize the space in my chosen storage unit size?
Maximizing space efficiency in your selected storage unit size is essential.  Begin by disassembling furniture and stacking boxes to save space vertically.  Use shelves, racks, and storage containers to keep items organized and easily accessible.  Consider creating pathways within the unit for easy movement when adding or removing items.  Properly labeling your boxes also aids in locating items quickly.  Don’t forget to protect any unboxed or valuable items with coverings to prevent damage.  Utilizing the space with these strategies ensures you’re making the most of your 10x10 or 10x20 unit. 

Can I change to a larger or smaller unit if my needs change?
Absolutely! Our goal is to accommodate your evolving storage requirements.  If you find that your belongings require more or less space, you can always transition to a different unit size.  Although we cannot guarantee immediate availability, our staff can guide you through the process of transferring a storage unit that aligns perfectly with your needs.  Your satisfaction and convenience remain our top priority. 

Storage Success - Packing Do's and Don'ts


1.      Plan Ahead: Create a packing and labeling plan before moving day. This will help you keep track of what's in each box and make unpacking easier.

2.      Choose the Right Packing Supplies: Use sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper, and furniture covers to protect your items during transit and storage.

3.      Disassemble Furniture: If possible, disassemble larger furniture items to save space and prevent damage. Keep all screws and bolts in labeled bags.

4.      Wrap Fragile Items: Wrap delicate items like glassware, dishes, and electronics in bubble wrap or packing paper. Place them in boxes with cushioning materials for added protection.

5.      Label Everything: Clearly label each box with its contents and the room it belongs to. This makes retrieval and organization hassle-free.

6.      Use Uniform Box Sizes: Opt for uniform box sizes to maximize storage space. This will make stacking and arranging boxes much easier.

7.      Create Pathways: leave pathways between items and stacks of boxes to allow easy access to your belongings.

8.      Protect Mattresses and Unholstered Furniture: Use mattress covers and furniture wraps to shield these items from dust, moisture, and potential scratches.

9.      Store Valuables Separately: Keep valuable documents, jewelry, and sentimental items and a secure container that you can easily access when needed.

10.  Elevate Items: Place cardboard or pallets on the floor of the unit to prevent items from sitting directly on the ground, protecting them from potential moisture.

Storage Success - Packing Do's and Don'ts


1.      Overload Boxes: Avoid packing boxes to the point where they become too heavy to lift. Distribute weight evenly to prevent accidents.

2.      Use Plastic Bags: Refrain from using plastic bags for long-term storage, as they can trap moisture and potentially damage your items.

3.      Neglect Cleaning: Clean and dry your items before packing them to prevent mold, mildew, and odors from developing over time.

4.      Store Hazardous Materials: Do not store flammable, explosive, or perishable items in your storage unit, as they can pose a safety risk.

5.      Skip Insurance: Even though storage facilities provide security, consider ensuring your stored items against unforeseen events such as left, fire, and damage.

6.      Leave Dead Space: Avoid wasting space by properly stacking boxes and using the unit’s vertical space. Fill gaps to optimize your storage area.

7.      Rush the Packing Process: Take your time when packing to ensure items are properly protected and organized. Rushing can lead to potential damage.

8.      Ignore Accessibility: Arrange items in a way that allows you to access what you need without having to move everything around.

9.      Store Perishable Items: Do not store food items, plants, or anything that can attract pests or spoil over time.

10.  Avoid improper stacking: Do not stack items too high or haphazardly, as it could lead to instability and potential damage.
