How to Choose the Right Size Storage Unit?


NYC self-storage facilities offer units in a wide range of sizes to New Yorkers. Take an inventory of the belongings you wish to store so you can determine the best size storage unit. Do not forget to think about your future needs. You may need extra space for storing some more items in the unit. So, choose the unit that can easily accommodate the items now and in future too.

Here are the sample storage unit sizes:

5’x5′ Units – Ideal for keeping personal items, boxes, skis, clothes, small furniture, business records, children’s toys or sales rep materials.

5′ or 7.5’x10′ Units – Sufficient space for storing a sofa, chairs, furniture, box spring, chest of drawers and mattress and other small items and boxes.

10’x10′ Units – Suitable for keeping contents of a one-bedroom apartment with furniture, major appliances and boxed items.

10’x15′ Units – You can store the contents of a two-bedroom apartment or home, including appliances, and other supplies.

10’x20′ Units – It can hold the contents of a three-bedroom apartment or home with furniture, big boxes, furniture and boxed items. Also, this storage unit is ideal for storage racks and commercial inventory.

10’x30′ Units – You can easily store the contents of a four- to five-bedroom home including boxes, furniture, appliances and supplies. Commercial and equipment can also be stored in such unit.

Before taking the final call, it is better to visit the facility in person and see whether they have the same size of NYC self storage unit that you are planning to use for your belongings. You can also ask storage personnel to help you in determining the right storage space.
