Sol Storage is all about maximizing space and minimizing the amount of money you need to spend for a storage unit. There are many different situations in which individuals and families need personal storage and each situation calls for a different size unit. To better serve our customers, we have six different sizes that range from 5’x5’ to 10’x30’. Whether you’re relocating and need temporary storage for your family’s belongings or just need extra space in your home but you aren’t quite ready to sell a couch or dresser, self storage is a way in which you can fulfill all of your needs.

To begin determining which size self storage unit you need, make a list of everything you plan on putting into storage, from coffee tables, bookcases, or boxes filled with smaller items. Take a quick measurement of items and calculate an estimate of how much square footage you’ll need. Remember to add in enough space to maneuver around the storage unit in case you need to access any of your items after packing them into the unit. Also, consider how you will pack the items into the unit. Our storage units have 10 foot or higher ceilings, allowing for items to be stacked on top of each other, further maximizing the space.

Because moving and having a need for storage can happen suddenly, if you have any questions about what size to reserve, please give our staff a call. We will be more than happy to assist in determining which size personal storage unit you need. Be sure to check out our Airport Cerrillos location and our Airport Bypass location to see which is most convenient for you and your family and for specific features. Even with meticulous planning, you may need to access your unit for items that are packed away. Both of our locations can be reached easily and quickly no matter where you are coming from or going to. Give us a call today to make a reservation.
