Choosing a storage space is not easy if you’ve never had to do it before. Visualizing how much stuff you have and where it can fit is sometimes difficult. There are some things that you need to do to make it easier and some things that you should know about how much stuff can be stored in one space. For one, you need to use as many uniformly sized boxes as possible. Square or rectangular boxes are best because they fit into corners. They should be sturdy cardboard boxes or plastic boxes so that you can stack things up. Being able to stack vertically helps to reduce the amount of floor space being taken up.

5’x10’ Units

A 5’x10’ unit is a fairly standard size for storage in Dallas. Five feet by ten feet is the size of a walk-in closet. Anything that you can fit into a walk-in closet will fit in a 5’x10’ unit. That’s usually about enough to store the contents of one room. If you are storing more than one room or if you have a lot of furniture, you need a bigger space.

Larger Units

The larger storage units are great for storing multiple rooms or even an entire house. A 10’x25’ unit is about the size of a one-car garage. Everything that you could store in your garage will fit into a 10’x25’ unit. Don’t forget that you can store upwards if you have sturdy boxes so that will save you some space. Finally, if you need more space than that, you might need more than one storage unit. Click here for more details about the professional storage in Dallas.

If you need to store a boat or a car, it will likely be stored outside so you will need some kind of tarp. A waterproof tarp will keep it in great condition even if it’s sitting for months. You can find those storage spaces at Firefighting’s Finest Moving and Storage, Inc.
