When it comes to self-storage units, they are going to be available to you in a very wide array of different sizes.  In order for you to properly choose a storage unit that is going to be able to fit all of your needs, you will want to take a complete inventory of everything that you are planning to store in your unit.  While it is also a great idea for you to make a list of all the items you are planning on storing so that you don’t forget anything, it can also remind you of the larger items that may require a little bit more space.  Not only should you make a list of all the items that you are going to be storing, you will need to keep in mind whether or not you are going to be adding any additional items later on.  If you are (or think that you may), you may want to consider putting those items on your list as well, allowing you to accommodate them now, as well as in the future.

Consider What You Are Storing

After you have decided on what items you are going to be putting into your storage unit at Storage Plus, Sydney NSW, it will then be time for you to start considering their weights and sizes.  While some items are going to be able to be stacked on top of each other, other items may be too large, heavy, or even awkwardly shaped, meaning that they are going to need their own space to properly be stored.  Keeping that in mind, one of the best ways you can determine what size storage unit you are going to need is to actually pack all of your belongings and stack them altogether.  Consider this as a ‘test run’ to help you determine what size unit you are actually going to require in order to properly store all of your stuff.  Once everything has been stored, take a tape measure and measure out how much space you are actually going to need.  You can even try using different types of boxes and containers to come up with the most effective way to store all of your belongings.

Consider How Long You Will Be Storing

Depending upon the length of time that you are going to be storing your belongings, it may be a good idea to rent a unit that will provide you with extra space for ventilation and easier access.  If you are only going to be storing your stuff for a shorter amount of time, it is typically going to be ok to store everything closer together.  When it comes to longer periods of storage however, providing your items with some extra space for ventilation and easier access for you, is going to be essential.  For any items that you are going to require regular access to, you may want to consider leaving enough space so that you can make an aisle in the unit.  All you have to do then is to arrange those ‘regularly visited’ items on the outer edges of the aisle allowing you much easier access to them.
