Choosing the size of your storage unit is very important.  You want to ensure you have enough room to properly store all of your belongings but also don’t want to get one that’s so large that you’re spending unnecessary money on excessive space.  First, take an inventory of everything you plan to store.  Lay out boxes, furniture, and anything else you’ll be storing.  Measuring the amount of space they’ll take up will help you narrow down unit sizes.  Keep in mind that you’ll want to multiply the numbers for the storage unit to calculate square feet of storage because you’ll be able to stack items and fill spaces from wall to wall.  

Depending on what you’re storing, you may want to invest in a climate-controlled unit.  This type of storage space will greatly reduce the chance of bugs like moths and termites getting into your belongings and damaging them.  Climate control will also prevent mold from growing or wooden furniture from swelling and warping from humidity.
