Hi guys, welcome to Flex TV. My name is Hope and I will be answering all of your storage related questions. Today’s question comes to us from Angela. What Angela wants to know is what size are storage units? Good question, Angela. Of course, all of us have different amount of stuff to store so we wanna know what’s gonna actually fit in a storage unit. Maybe you wanna put one room in storage, maybe an entire house, maybe two houses. So let’s go right into it. So Angela, for the most part, storage units do come in pretty much all sizes. If you look well enough, you’re gonna find any size that you need, but there are standard sizes that you’re going to find pretty much in every storage facility. So in warehouse facility sizes, our standard sizes are 5 by 5 feet, 5 by 10 feet, 10 by 10 feet, 10 by 15 feet, and 10 by 20 feet. You will mostly find these sizes in pretty much every large storage vendor when it comes to portable storage and we have storage containers you’re going to find kind of a standard as well although this might vary a little bit more but for the most part all containers are going to be about eight feet wide and the length is going to change according to how much space you need so it will be eight foot long 12 foot long or 16 foot long of course the price changes also based on these variables of the size so pay attention Make sure that you have something that’s big enough for your needs, but also that’s not too big that you’re just going to be paying extra for no reason. So in conclusion, Angela, there is a storage room for whatever you need to store. No matter how much you need to store, there is going to be a storage room big enough. And even if there isn’t, you can always just book two or even three. Most storage providers will give you a sizable discount if you order more than one. So don’t worry about it. Just make sure to check and measure all the items going into storage so you know what size to choose best. I hope I helped you answer your question, Angela.
