Determining the right size storage unit you need in Atlanta

Do you have clutter in your premises or place or work? Are you planning to move? Are you refurbishing your house and you need to move a couple of things to complete the project? If your answer is ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then you definitely need some storage space. Storage space is a requisite for many individuals but unfortunately, in most instances, it doesn’t come cheap. You always have to rent some extra space if you want to store something.

Luckily, there is now a better and much cheaper method of acquiring storage space – mobile self storage. We provide our clients with portable containers to meet their storage needs. This mode of storage is cheap and convenient since all you have to do is give us a call and we’ll provide you with an excellent container to perfectly meet your storage needs!

Before you order a portable storage container, you should determine the amount of storage you need. This consequently dictates the container size you’ll acquire. Proper storage begins with accurate estimation of the storage space. Wrong storage space estimation may lead you to acquire a small or large container which doesn’t perfectly meet your storage needs.

Most people try to estimate the storage space they need by simply taking a look at the things they want to store. Although this may help you vaguely picture the container size you need, you will not be able to tell the precise cubic footage of storage space you need. Here are two steps to help you determine the exact cubic footage of storage space you need to store your items:

Determine How You Want to Store Your Items

There are many different ways of storing items. How you store each item determines the final storage space you require. For example, a disassembled bed requires a much lesser storage space compared to an assembled one. Similarly, a longitudinally stored sofa would occupy less base area compared to one which is placed flat against the base. Finally, it’s advisable to place your items in a way that they’ll occupy minimal storage space.

Use the Space Calculator

Once you’ve determined how you want to store your items, access our site and use the Space Calculator. Our Storage Unit Calculator calculates the cubic footage of storage space you need based on the items you want to store and how you prefer storing them. All you have to do is enter the amount of each item and the calculator will accurately calculate the precise storage unit space you need!
