How to Choose a Storage Unit Near You

What’s the Best Wichita Storage Unit Size for You? Here are 6 things to consider.

how to choose a storage unit near you1. Inventory – What will you be storing? Make a list, so you don’t forget!

2. Identify – Consider sizes, weights, and shapes. Can your items be stacked on each other or will they need their own space?

3. Measure – Pack and stack items then use a tape measure to double-check the size.

4. Time – How long will you be storing these items? Will you be storing items in the future? How big are they? Make sure your unit can accommodate those sizes so you don’t have to move later. Some items may need proper ventilation over time as well.

5. Temperature – Are the items you’re storing weather-sensitive and prone to deteriorate from harsh hot or cold Kansas weather? You might need a climate-controlled storage unit. Check out what items (clothing, instruments, etc.) might need climate-controlled storage.

6. Frequency – Will you be visiting your Wichita storage unit often? Create an aisle to easily access your items. You may also consider storing in a climate-controlled unit to stay comfortable during your visit.

  1. It’s good to know that you should know how long you will be storing your items. My husband and I want to find a storage unit that we can rent for our RV since we are done using it for the summer. We’ll keep this information in mind as we search for a storage unit that we can rent.

  2. I totally agree when you said that some items would also need some ventilation at some point. With that in mind, I will make sure that the self-storage unit that I will rent will not be too small, even if I only have a small flat. It would be perfect for my books and the antique furniture that my grandmother gave me.

  3. I appreciate what you said about making sure you store weather-sensitive equipment. I need to get a storage unit for all of my bikes. They will rust if they are left outside.

  4. It really helped when you said that we need to choose the right size to accommodate our items so that we don’t have to move later. With that in mind, I need to look at all of the things in the kitchen because it will be renovated soon. After checking all of them, I can have an idea what size of storage unit rentals I should get to book one this coming September.

  5. I like the tip you gave that you should have a list of the things you would store in the storage facility before planning. A few nights ago, my friend informed me he was looking for a self-storage that he would use as storage for his apparel business products. He asked if I had any thoughts on the best option to consider. I appreciate your explanation about the importance of consulting a self-storage service. I’ll tell him it will be much better if he consults one.

  6. You made a good point to take the sizes, weights, and shapes of the items you plan to store into consideration. My younger brother is moving home from college for a semester and wants to store his larger items in a unit. In addition to the unit size, I think he should consider the level of security provided at the storage facility.
