Whether you’re a veteran self storage tenant or you want to rent a unit for the first time, using the 3D storage calculator on our website can greatly help! If you’ve rented a unit before and your storage needs have changed, you may be wondering what size will fit your belongings and your budget. If you have more to store than you did before, you will likely need a larger storage space than your current unit. If have fewer belongings to store than you did in the past, a smaller unit with less square feet than what your current storage rental offers may be just right for you.
Saving Money With the Help of the 3D Storage Calculator
Choosing the right unit size can help you get the most back for your buck. If you get a larger storage unit than what you need, you may be paying for extra square feet that you aren’t using. However, if you underestimate the unit size you’ll need, you might get stuck with a storage space that can’t store all of your belongings. The 3D storage calculator gives you an appropriate estimate of the unit size you’ll need for your items in square feet.
How to Use the 3D Storage Calculator
The 3D storage calculator offers a few ways to determine the best storage space for you. One way is that you can select the number of bedrooms that are in your current home, from 1-4 bedrooms.
The second way involves selecting the items you want to store in your unit from a long list of household items and furniture that are commonly kept in a self storage space. A visual 3D diagram of your recommended unit size with your chosen belongings in the unit will be shown.
3D Storage Diagram
The recommended unit size, such as a 10 feet by 10 feet unit, will be displayed to let you know what storage space you should choose based on your needs. For example, you could select 1 queen size bed, 4 coffee tables, 2 nightstands, and 3 dressers in the storage calculator, you’ll see those items inside the 3D storage unit diagram.
The 3D storage diagram can even give you some ideas for how to place your items in the storage unit so you can maximize the space you have, such as placing a mattress on its side instead of flat on the ground. Try stacking chairs and small coffee tables if possible to save space.
