When you are looking for storage units in El Paso, AAA Self Storage has units available that come in many different sizes. You want to make sure that you get a storage unit that is large enough to hold everything that you are hoping to store. The storage unit should also be big enough so you have room to move around when you load it up and when you need to get something.

Choosing the Size of Storage Units

AAA Self Storage helps you to decide what size storage units you need by providing a guide to about how much stuff each unit will store. For example, if you get a storage unit that is five feet by five feet, you will have a total of approximately 25 square feet of storage. This is approximately equivalent in size to a small bedroom, a small office, or a hall closet.  You can fit around 50 file boxes total in this size of storage unit and it is ideal for storing clothing, boxes, toys, and other small household items.  Storage unit sizes get bigger from there in 25 foot increments.  For example, you could get a 5 foot by 10 foot storage space which provides 50 square feet of storage or a  7.5 foot by 10 foot space which provides 75 square feet of storage and is about equivalent in size to a large walk-in closet. The largest of the storage spaces are 10 feet by 30 feet, which is the equivalent of an extra large garage with 300 total square feet of office space.
