How to Choose a Storage Space

Investing in a self-storage unit is a great option when you need extra storage for your belongings or valuables.

However, not every storage unit is the same. To make choosing a storage space easier,

we’re breaking down four things to consider.

1. Determine Your Storage Space’s Size

Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is how big your storage space needs to be. In

addition to containing all your stuff, you should also account for a space to easily walk around

inside your storage unit. Also, if applicable, whether or not you’ll be adding more items to your

storage unit.

2. What Will You Be Storing?

When choosing storage services, it’s important to realize that there are different units for

different needs. For example, items like perishables call for a climate-controlled unit. Or if you

have sensitive materials like fabric then they will also need a climate-controlled unit.

3. Have Extra Space for Ventilation

Even if you’re using a climate-controlled unit, that doesn’t mean you should cram everything

together. Instead, make sure to invest in extra space for ventilation. If you find that adding extra

space makes you have to go up a size in storage units, look to see if there are any items you

can donate, sell, or throw away.

4. What Service Are You Using?

Not every service is made the same. For great quality and features like 24/7 security, you’ll want

to choose a service like Iron Guard Storage. Iron Guard has plenty of storage spaces available.
