Whether you’re simply looking for more space for your belongings, or relocating to the Houston area, finding the right storage unit size can be difficult. Putting into context dimensions of various Houston storage units can be tricky and some units may not store as many items as you think.
When selecting a self-storage unit in Houston, you must first consider whether your belongings will fit comfortably in it. You’d be surprised by how many people fail to account for the size and/or quantity of the items that they need to store. This can prove to be quite inconvenient if they choose, for example, a 5’ x 5’ space expecting to fit a queen-size mattress. It can also be quite frustrating if you’re the person trying to stuff it in such a tiny space.

When finding the right storage unit for your needs, you’ll definitely try to maximize the space you’re paying for, but avoid making the “too small” mistake. Instead, it’s much safer to go with a “too big” size—you should have enough room to not only properly store your property, but to also maneuver around the unit in order to pack or unpack as needed.
Making a list of the items you plan to store is a great way of determining how much storage unit space you’ll need. The size of the unit you’ll need to store smaller items like clothes and books differs greatly from a storage unit for larger items like a couch or a fridge.
Another factor to consider is the kinds of items you’re looking to store. For belongings you cherish, climate-controlled storage units are a great way to protect fragile or sensitive items from the humid Houston weather. From antique items to paper documents and even metal appliances, our climate controlled storage units in Houston give you the peace of mind your belongings are well taken care of.
Finally, consider pre-organizing your items before moving them to your new self-storage unit in Houston. By arriving to the storage facility with a plan, you’ll save both time and space. Plus, having a plan helps you maximize on the space you’re paying for.
