When it comes to a Self Storage units you get what you pay for.

What size Self Storage unit is right for me ?
While you will be tempted to simply look at your stuff and guess the size it will fit into that is a poor method.
Instead there are a few steps to go thru that will better serve your needs.
If you choose a Storage unit too small then you will pay extra and work extra to get it moved into a bigger size.
On the other hand if you choose too large then you are paying extra for nothing each and every month.
First sort your items into 2 piles.
Pile 1 is the stuff that you will not need to access and it can all be pilled together.
Pile 2 is the stuff you must be able to access on a semi regularly basis.
Now you must decide how you want Pile 2 stored.
Do you need shelving ?
How much shelving is needed.
If you have no shelving then a DIY solution is to use Boards to rough up shelving on the fly.
Use the boxes of stuff you don’t need access to for holding up the boards.
Make sure they are strong enough.
The next thing is to now figure out how much space you will need in the future.
Be realistic and only act on this if you will need the space in less than 12 months.
