Finding publicstorage is quite easy. Storage Unit Facilities are located in most major American cites. The units come in various sizes to meet each individual’s needs. Some of the smaller units consist of 5×5, and 5×10. For those who have more items to store that will not fit these smaller units, there are larger units as well. Here is a breakdown of the most common storage unit dimensions:
5′ x 5′ (25 sq. ft.) – These units usually store away a small mattress and box spring, small items and boxes, and a chest of drawers. These can also be great for storing away garden tools, or small equipment and tools.
5′ x 10′ (50 sq. ft.) – These units are great for storage boxes and furniture from a medium size bedroom, which can consist of a dresser, a queen-size bed, and television, for example.
10′ x 10′ (100 sq. ft.) – These larger units are great to store away the contents of a living, or family room, or the contents of two full sized bedrooms.
10′ x 15′ (150 sq. ft.) – The 10×15 can store the furnishings of a three bedroom in this 150 sq. ft. unit. It can also fit in couches, tables, big screen televisions, etc.
10′ x 20′ (200 sq. ft.) – You will be able to store the contents of a 5-bedroom home. Items to fit these units typically are dining room tables, chairs, washer and dryer, refrigerator, boxes, and more.
10′ x 30′ (300 sq. ft.) – This 300 sq. ft. until can hold the furnishings of a 5- to 7-bedroom home. Just like the 10×20 above, items that fit these units typically are dining room tables, chairs, washer and dryer, refrigerator, boxes, and more.
The demand for storage units have increased, and some storage facilities are completely full. This is due in most part to the economy and foreclosures. If you cannot pay your storage unit rent, your unit can be auctioned off if you get several months behind. Be sure to stay as current as possible. Even if you have to sell a few items from your unit to pay for the rent, it is worth it. You do not want to risk losing everything you own in a storage auction. Storage unit auctions are becoming more and more common now because people do not have the money to pay their back payments on their units. Don’t let this happen to you!
