What size Des Plaines storage unit do I need?

There are several factors to consider when deciding what size storage space you will need. First, what is it that you will be storing? Is it just boxes, or will you need to store the entire contents of your home or apartment? If it is just a few boxes, you may only need a locker-sized storage unit.

Second, you need to consider how you will use the unit. Will you need to visit the storage unit often to retrieve things, or will you place the items in storage and not go back again until you are ready to remove your things? If you will be visiting often, you’ll want to leave an aisle so you can get to the items you need to get to. If you don’t plan on going into the unit very often, then you can pack your items tighter and maximize your space.

Finally, will you be storing furniture and clothing, or will it be the tools you need for your job? Furniture storage, clothing, antiques, paper items, and household goods should always be stored in a temperature-controlled environment. Review our space estimator to calculate the amount of space required for your specific storage situation.
