Storage Guide: How To Estimate The Storage Space You Need

Whether you are planning to renovate your home or office; you might need a storage space for your belongings. We can live with peace of mind when we know that our items are stored in a safe, secure and accessible space. There are a variety of storage spaces to meet different storage needs. Read on for more information.

1. Prepare An Inventory Of Your Belongings

The first step is to identify how much stuff you have. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Sort out the items that you would like to keep and items that will go into storage.
  • Divide the stuff for storage by size. For example Group large items such as shelves, tables and couches together.
  • Store smaller items in boxes to keep things organized. It also makes shifting more efficient – and if you are not a fan of sticky tapes, Storefriendly’s tape-free storage boxes might be for you.
  • Take note of possessions that need special care. For example, if you have a precious leather sofa that needs to be maintained in a cool environment. Storefriendly’s 24/7 air-conditioned storage units might be what you are looking for.

2. Measure Everything

Once you have all the items for storage ready, pile them together. Measure their length and width in feet – then multiply them together. For example, if the length is 4 and the width is 6, your total measurement will be 24 (4 x 6) square feet.

Providing this measurement to a representative of a storage provider will assist them to recommend a suitable storage space.

Those who’d prefer to measure in cubic feet can multiply the height, length, and width of the ‘pile’ of items intended for storage.

If the height is 5, width is 6 and length is 4. Then 5 x 6 x 4 = 120 cubic feet. This will be the total storage requirement that you will have.

3. Understand Your Storage Requirements

Choose your storage unit according to your lifestyle. If you are retrieving items from your unit very often, storage with more space for legroom will be ideal. You may also consider storing frequently-retrieved items on racks for ease of searching. Storefriendly also provides 24-hour access to your storage units – perfect for people who’d like to retrieve their stuff on the go

4. Points To Consider

Storefriendly also has an online storage calculator to assist you with your storage requirements. This alternate solution is ideal for people who’d only have the time to work on their storage needs during non-office hours.

However, we’d highly recommend you reach out to trained and experienced professionals from Storefriendly to provide you with an ideal storage solution.

It is compulsory to have your stored items insured by a legitimate insurance company. Insurance provides you with peace of mind by covering your losses, including fire, water damage and theft. Costs can range from $5 to $20 per month, depending on the item.

 

5. Space-Saving Tips

  • Measure the largest item that you are storing to have a quick idea of the amount of space you’d need.
  • Use the vacuum bags to deflate items containing air. The lesser air there is in your items, the more space you’d have for storage. For example, a deflated cushion would enable more space in your luggage as compared to a fluffy cushion.
  • Fill up boxes and suitcases to save space.
  • Use clothes to cushion your glassware and other delicate items.
