If possible, we recommend calling your local facility ahead of time to check their current unit availability. You can also find a unit near you that’ll work for you and your stuff. If your home, apartment, condo or property is 2,000 square feet or larger, you may need an oversized unit or, possibly, multiple units to fit all your belongings comfortably.
