If you have extra items in your home or office that are taking up unnecessary space, storage units allow you to free up additional space, whether on a short-term or long-term basis. Whether you are looking to store important documents, furniture or vehicles, climate-controlled storage units may be for you.
Once you have decided that you need a place to store some of your belongings, the next question becomes how to choose the correct unit size. Size is important because you don’t want to pay for storage space that you aren’t actually using.

- What Items Are You Storing?
The first thing to consider is what items will be going into the storage unit.
- Estimate the Floor Space
Next, you will need to determine how much floor space you will need. To get an idea, measure your largest items with a tape measure. It may also be helpful to place your items out on the floor to get a rough estimate of how much square footage you might need. If you are still unsure about what unit size you will need, do not hesitate to contact one of our certified storage consultants, who will be more than happy to make a recommendation.
- Account for a Pathway
Consider if you will be packing your items tightly or if you will leaving some additional room. UltraStor recommends leaving at least enough space to allow for a pathway to access items at the back of your storage unit.
- Account for All Dimensions (Length/Width/Height)
Be sure to account for all three dimensions, including the length, width and height of your storage unit, and use all space to your advantage. For example, you can take advantage of the vertical space of your storage unit by turning a sofa on its head.
