August 13, 2012

Now that you have decided to store your belongings, you are probably thinking about the size you might need. Here at All Size Sheds at the Gold Coast we always try to help customers choose the right size by giving them advice and share our knowledge with them. For this reason in today’s article we would like to share with you some of the things we share with customers who ask us what size of storage unit is better for their needs. We hope this article helps you make the right decision!

When it comes to the size of your storage unit there are a few things that you might not have thought about, such as:

What are you putting into the unit

If you only have boxes, you can go for a small size, however if you have different size of furniture and white goods, bigger sizes are ideal.

How frequently are you going to open the storage?

If you are going to visit the storage regularly to go through the boxes and other furniture stored, you want to ensure you have a unit large enough to allow you to walk through the storage easily.

There is nothing wrong in having more room to walk around!

How long are you going to need the storage room?

If you need a long term storage unit, you might want to get a big storage just in case you decide to store more things in the future. If you only need it for a short period of time, get a storage unit that fits only the belongings you have at that precise moment.

If you have more questions that we haven’t answers please don’t hesitate to contact us! We are more than happy to help! You can either call us on (07) 5543 7181 or send us an online enquiry.
