At Storage West, we offer storage units of all shapes and sizes. Perhaps the most impressive is our largest unit, the 10 X 30 drive-up unit. It offers a huge amount of storage space for all of your belongings. This 10 x 30 size unit it’s big enough for up to a five-bedroom home. You can park a vehicle and still have 100 square foot of personal storage as well.
It goes all the way to the back here and we highly suggest that people who store stuff in the back here, that they create somewhat of a walk-through way to get to the back. All the stuff that you don’t need to access for the first couple of months, put that in the back, such as your beds, your dressers, refrigerator, washer, dryer, etc.”
As a rule of thumb, we usually tell people that the 10 X 30 unit is large enough to store the contents of a five-bedroom home. That includes:
- Multiple beds and box springs
- Tables and chairs
- Large appliances, including washers and dryers
- Large and small boxes
- Plastic bins
- Filing cabinets
This space is so large that you can even store a vehicle in it and still have up to 100 square feet of personal storage space around it. We have clients who store cars, SUVs, trucks, or boats in our 10 X 30 units. It’s a safe, convenient way to store a vehicle that you won’t be using for a while – and the climate-controlled unit will ensure that your vehicle is in good condition when you’re ready to use it again.
When packing a 10 X 30 unit, we recommend starting with the largest and heaviest items at the back of the unit. Then, we suggest creating a walkway from the front of the unit to the rear. The walkway will make it easy for you to access items stored at the rear of the unit.
The items that you’ll need to use more frequently should be stacked toward the front of the unit. Labelling all of your boxes will ensure that you can find what you need when you need it, especially if you stack the boxes with the labels out so you can read them. Keep in mind that our 10 X 30 unit has lighting throughout to make it easy to find your things when you visit our facility.
If you need packing supplies prior to your move-in date, we have boxes of all sizes, bubble wrap, packing tape, and furniture pads for your convenience. You can also get free use of our moving truck when the big day arrives!
