Self storage units cater to different customers with different needs. The units come in all shapes and sizes and depending on the requirements of customers, they can choose one that best suits them. Customers must be wary of not only their current needs but also their future needs. They need to cater sufficient space to store things that they plan to get in future. Next, they need to decide on how they plan to store their items. Will they stack the items on top of each other or do they want to space them out evenly. All these factors will affect their choice of storage size for the units. One of the most efficient way is to place items into carton boxes and stack them up, maximising all the space in the unit.
