Whether you’re preparing for a military deployment or taking an extended trip, you might need to store some or all of your belongings in a safe and secure location while you’re away. For many people, the ideal size is our 10 X 20 storage unit. Typically, this size is ideal for between a three-bedroom and a four-bedroom home
A drive-up unit in this size is ideal for storing a vehicle if you need someplace to keep your car, motorcycle, or ATV. You can simply drive your vehicle right into the unit. All of our units are air-conditioned and safe for vehicle storage. You can be sure that your car will be in good condition when you’re ready to use it again.
A 10 X 20 unit is the unit we often recommend for people who have a three or four-bedroom home. The 20-foot depth means that you can easily store several mattresses, living room furniture, tables, chairs, boxes, and other items.
With a unit this deep, we tell our clients to plan on creating a walkway that leads from the front of the unit to the back. That’s especially important if you think you’ll need to regularly assess your most of your belongings. The pathway will ensure that you can move around within your storage unit without having to rearrange boxes.
When you’re preparing to move belongings into your new storage unit, you should be careful to pack them properly. We have dedicated an entire page on our website to storage tips, which includes advice on the best way to prepare your items for storage. We also sell a selection of packing materials, including:
- Boxes in various sizes, including hanger boxes for your clothing
- Packing tape
- Bubble wrap
- Furniture pads
At Storage West, all of our storage units are air-conditioned. That means that you can safely store your important documents in our facilities, secure in the knowledge that they won’t be damaged by heat or moisture during their stay with us. The air conditioning also ensures that the heat won’t affect your other belongings.
Everybody who rents with us has the option of using our moving truck for free on the day of their move. Use is subject to availability, so make sure to book in advance. We provide this service as a convenience because we consider our clients to be part of the Storage West community – and neighbors should always help each other out!
