How to Pick the Right Unit for Your Needs

The need for storage usually signals a change of circumstances. Whether you’re downsizing, relocating, going away to school, getting married, or making another type of transition, storage units can be helpful during busy, stressful times. With so much going on, though, you might find the task of choosing the right-sized unit a little daunting. Stor’em Self Storage in Payson UT is here to help.

Take Stock

Employees at your storage facility can help you choose a unit, but a little homework helps ensure accuracy. Take inventory of your belongings, measuring larger items. Decide how you will use the unit: Will you access household items or business equipment and supplies frequently, or do you simply need to store them for a while? Fill us in on your plans, and we’ll help you make an informed decision.

Make Use of Online Storage Calculators

Online calculators are available to help us manage nearly every area of our lives. From mortgages to weight loss, these handy tools make easy work of important decisions. Since room sizes in our homes don’t line up with the amount of square footage needed to store our belongings, an online calculator is ideal for figuring out which storage units are right for our needs. Just fill in the blanks indicating what items you will be placing in self storage, hit ‘calculate’, and our online tool will tell you which unit size to choose.

Other Ways to Find the Right Storage Unit Size

If you’re not sure how much space you need, play it safe and go bigger. However, our suggestions can help you find a suitable unit size. In fact, you may even find you need a smaller space than expected. Touring the facility will give you the best idea of what to expect. If you’re moving, scoping out your moving truck and comparing available unit sizes is another way to visualize how much room you’ll need.

Whether you’re placing the contents of a large house in a 10’ x 30’ unit or sports gear and gardening supplies in a 5′ x 5′ space, make the most of your storage dollar. Use online calculators, or get professional help from our friendly staff. Whatever your needs, we have a wide range of storage units at our facility in Payson UT.
