Tips on Selecting the Right Storage Unit Size

A-1 Self Storage offers a wide variety of storage unit sizes. From closet size to garage size, we have the perfect size for your personal storage or business storage needs. You’d be surprised how small a storage space you can fit your belongings into! Let us help save you save space and money by finding the right size to fit your needs.

First, you must determine exactly what items you will be storing. Second, ask yourself the following questions:

  • What large items will I be storing? Think about how much furniture, large appliances or equipment you’ll need to store, as these items will occupy most of the floor space and may be not able to be stacked.
  • Can my sofa be stood upright? If so, this can save you floor space and money.
  • Are all items boxed up? Items that are stored in uniform box sizes can be stacked neatly and save you even more floor space and money. Items that are stored in laundry baskets, containers and odd size boxes don’t stack very well or allow you to use your space more efficiently. A-1 Self Storage offers a wide variety of boxes and packing & moving supplies for your one-stop shopping convenience.
  • How often will you be accessing your storage unit? If you’ll be visiting your storage frequently then you might consider selecting a size that will allow you a little extra space to find items easily. Creating an aisle or walkway inside your storage unit will also make it easier to get to the items in the back. If you are a college student planning to store your items over your summer vacation or active military going on deployment, then choose a size that fits more efficiently.

By answering these questions, you’ll have a better idea of what size you’ll need.  You can use our Size Guide to help you estimate what size storage space you may need; other sizes may be available.

However, you don’t need to choose Fullerton self storage by looking in the phone book and selecting the first self storage Fullerton option you see. Instead it makes sense to get a better idea of what you are looking for in order to find the perfect solution at A-1 Self Storage.

Create a shortlist of storage requirements

This is easy to do. Our website gives you an insight into what we offer by way of Fullerton CA self storage, so you can create your shortlist with the help of this information. Our website should give you a general feel for the quality of our facility.

You can opt for standard sized storage units, although we offer a wide range of  Fullerton storage units to fit your needs and budget. This is one of the most important features to consider, especially if you only want a small storage space. If you could only get larger ones, you would end up paying more than you need for empty space you won’t be using.


Visit us in person

Find out how much you’ll pay

Peace of mind and confidence in our service

When you store your belongings, stock or anything else of value in our storage units in Fullerton, you need to know they are going to be safe. A good storage facility such as A-1 Self Storage Fullerton will have surveillance measures in place 24/7. Good lighting, security cameras and access codes to get into the storage facility come as standard. Of course you should also get insurance to cover whatever you are going to store in your unit. If you are renting it to store inventory or any other business items for example, you need to make sure the value of the goods is covered by your policy. If you are going to allow other employees to gain access to the stock on your behalf, you also need to ensure you have employer’s liability insurance in case any accidents occur. It is crucial to ensure you are covered for all eventualities. Incidentally, insurance may also be cheaper to get when you can prove our Fullerton storage facility has a range of security measures in place right around the clock. You should also be aware we provide monthly rodent and pest control services as part of the service. After all, you don’t need to have valuable paperwork or power leads to your computers stolen to experience problems. Sharp teeth can do just as much damage but in a different way.
