Before renting a storage unit at Elite storage in Lafayette, CO, you are going to need to know what size of unit your will be needing. Nothing is worse than having a unit that is too small or too big for the amount of items you are needing to store. Below are some tips to help you when it comes to choosing the right size of a storage unit.

Take Inventory

Before you even begin to weigh your unit size options available to you, take inventory of everything you want to put into storage. Get out the measuring tape for some of your larger items to determine the smallest space they can fit into. Getting a better idea about what you need to store will help you in determining what size unit you need.

Standard Sizes of Units

Most facilities come with standard sizes with their storage units. The sizes that are available to you usually range from 5x5 to a 10x30. Always be sure to consider the limitations of your entire storage space, and make sure you take advantage of all three dimensions when thinking about your items (i.e., length, width, and height). Standard height of a storage unit is about 8 to 10 feet tall.

Choose the Wrong Size?

If you have secured a storage unit that is inaccurately matched with what you plan to store, the facility manager can help find you the right storage unit size. Not only will they help you make the necessary changes in your rental agreement, but they will also assist you in determining the proper unit size suitable for your belongings.
