To know how much extra storage space, is needed whether temporarily or on a long-term basis, you need to get down to the details and work out how much space you really require. Estimating the storage space you need may be a tedious and tiresome process, but besides knowing how much space you actually require, it is also a good inventory exercise to perform. By writing down all the items that need to go into storage, you are inevitably making yourself an inventory list once and for all. That’s killing two birds with one stone.
Once you get going, it is actually not that difficult to follow through. Simply follow the steps below:
Step 1: Note down all the possessions in your home that require storage. Start with the big items like mattresses, beds, bookcases, bicycles, tables and chairs, etc. They are easy to identify and account for. Once you are done with the big ones, open a box and pack some of the smaller items into it to estimate the moving boxes required to contain the smaller items.
Step 2: If you get through step 1, the toughest part of the job is over. Now, you can relax in front of the computer and start entering the quantity of your various belongings into our online storage calculator. The calculator automatically adds up the estimated space required for storage at the bottom of the page. If the item in your home is not in our list of items, choose an item that provides the best alternative.
Step 3: By now, you would have an estimate of the amount of storage space required from the storage calculator. Make sure you also take into consideration any possible future growth in space requirement. Once you figure that out, all you need to do now is to simply choose a storage container we provide that best fit your needs and send us your request so that we can provide you with a free, no obligation quote.
