Selecting The Storage Units That Match Your Need and Item Quantity

First considerations choosing the size of storage units Clarksville TN you will need. As a rough estimate, a very small one bedroom apartment without appliances will fit a 5’x10′ closet, a typical one bedroom apartment or a small 2 bedroom apartment without appliances will fit a storage unit 10’x10′, and a typical 2000 square foot home will fit a 10’x20′ storage unit. You will need to adjust these dimensions depending on how much stuff you have. More detailed estimates are also available, as listed in the author’s biography below. A second consideration when selecting a storage drive is the type of storage drive to select. Traditional storage drives generally come in two styles; temperature-controlled storage units located inside a building and garage-type storage units.

However, they generally require a lot more manpower to get in and out. Your items should be loaded from your moving vehicle onto a dolly, taken on an elevator, and then stored in the storage unit. If you hire a mover, your property’s loading/unloading time can easily double for a climate-controlled storage unit.The recommended style of storage drive depends on four factors; 1.) how much you need to store, 2.) what type of items you intend to keep, 3.) how long you plan to store, and 4.) the relative cost of each type of unit . In most urban areas, garage-style storage units tend to cost more than climate-controlled units, and in more rural areas, garage-style storage units tend to cost less.

If you have little to store, small storage units are usually temperature controlled and this is recommended as the effort required to move around is relatively low. Additionally, if you plan to store your items for more than 3 months, yes also recommends temperature controlled. Extreme temperatures can be very hard on your property, especially your furniture, if stored for a long period of time. Also, if you have antique furniture, artwork, or items that melt/freeze, these items should be stored in a temperature-controlled environment.For most other storage applications, a garage-style storage unit can be used, and it will usually be less expensive or save a significant amount of labor.

For example, if you have two men moving your property into a 10×10 storage unit, it will typically take 1 hour and 15 minutes less to get in or out for garage-style storage than a climate-controlled unit. . If you plan to move in and out of your warehouse, this represents a total saving of 2.5 hours of labor for two men. If you hire a moving company for your move, it could save you around $200. This saving is usually more than offset by the additional costs that might be associated with a garage style storage unit.
