Making the most of your storage unit

When you’re planning to rent self storage, it can be tempting to buy a bigger unit than you need – just in case. But what a lot of people don’t necessarily realise is that if you utilize the height of your unit, you can fit an incredible amount inside.

We were invited to check out a great example of this by one of our commercial customers.

If you store upwards, you can fit a lot more into your units. If you already have an idea of space, try our handy space calculator and size guide to see what size unit we recommend. If you aren’t sure, speak to one of our friendly managers – they will be able to help you work out what you need. Another way of making the most of your space is by using shelving. We wrote about this a little while ago on the blog, read it here.

This is why it’s important to visit the storage facility and actually take a look inside the units. It makes it much easier to estimate how much space you’ll need, sometimes it’s less than you think, sometimes it’s more.
