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 best size is our 10 X 20 storage unit. Typically, this size is ideal storage for a three-bedroom or a four-bedroom home.
Choose 10 by 20 Storage Unit for True Spaciousness
A 10 by 20 storage 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.
Furthermore, a drive-up 10 x 20 storage 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. Our 10 by 20 units are a good fit for vehicle storage. You can be sure that your car will be in good condition when you’re ready to use it again.
How to Organize a 10 x 20 Storage Unit
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 access most of your belongings. The pathway will ensure that you can move around within your 10 x 20 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, many of our 10 x 20 storage units are air-cooled or air-conditioned. That means that you can safely store your most important belongings in our facilities, secure in the knowledge that they won’t be damaged by heat during their stay with us.
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. (Please note that our moving truck isn’t available for moving out of your unit.) 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!
