Choosing the Right Size

A-1 Self Storage offers a variety of unit sizes to accommodate your storage needs. Our 5×5 unit is recommended for students living in a dorm. This unit is is about the size of a hallway closet, and is great for boxes, totes, chest of drawers, etc. Our 5×10 can accommodate the items from a studio apartment. This unit is about the size of a walk-in closest, and good for students who live with roommates and need to store an entire bedroom worth of items. We also have larger units for students needing to store the contents of their entire apartment or home. Still need help selecting the right sized unit? Check out our handy Unit Size Guide for more information.

Prep Your Items to Move

The first step to packing up your items is to decide what you will take with you for the summer, and what you will store. Next, you will need to get some boxes or plastic totes to pack up your items. Storing items in boxes or totes will keep them clean, and will allow you to stack and take advantage of all space in your unit. If you are storing a mini fridge, make sure you defrost it and clean it out. If you have a microwave be sure to clean it free of food before storing.
