Storage Unit Calculator–New Website Feature

One of the many great features available on our new website is the storage unit calculator. Designed to make it easy to find the right size space for your storage needs, with just a few clicks you’ll have the information you need to maximize your space and minimize your costs. 

How to Use Our Storage Unit Calculator

Our storage unit calculator is clean and user-friendly. On the calculator homepage, you’ll see a list of rooms and items–for example, bedroom, living room, appliances, and sports equipment. Clicking on a room brings up several options. For instance, if you click “Kitchen”, you’ll see options such as stool, breakfast table, and microwave oven. Click the options that apply to your needs and the calculator will provide an estimate in cubic feet as well as the storage size you’ll need.  As you go through the various rooms and items and add things to your storage inventory, you’ll notice that the storage unit calculator updates in real-time with every item you add to your list. For example, if you start with “Dining Room” and select one two-person bench, two rugs, one dining table, eight chairs, and a tea cart, the calculator confirms that these items will require 145 cubic feet of storage space and that the ideal storage unit size is 5 x 5.  When you’re done, feel free to check out our “Storage Tips” (under the “Storage Tools” tab) and then click the “Rent Storage” tab when you’re ready. Of course, if you’d like to talk with one of our representatives before reserving a unit, feel free to give us a call or drop us an email and we’ll respond promptly. Rest assured that we have a variety of standard self-storage units and climate-controlled storage units to meet every item, every need–whether you want short-term storage because you’re preparing for a move, long-term storage of seasonal items, or boat storage as a means of creating driveway/garage space. And with our strong commitment to safety and security, you’ll feel comfortable storing valuables such as art, electronics, antique furniture, and automobiles. 

Three Big Reasons to Consider Self-Storage

Your items are unprotected: rather than store your things in a backyard shed or a covered trailer, our self-storage facility is ideal for safely securing your belongings. Your things are unorganized: too much clutter in your home can make you feel lost and unorganized. Renting a storage unit is a great solution for organizing your belongings so they’re easy to find.  Your home is crowded: one of the biggest benefits a storage unit offers is the opportunity to free up valuable space in your home. The furniture you don’t use anymore, collections you don’t handle very often–all of it is ripe for off-site storage.
