What unit size will work best for me?
As always, the unit size you’ll need for storing your items depends on what you plan to store. Are you just clearing out some boxes from your closet, basement, or garage? In this case, a 5x5 or 5x10 is all you’ll really need. Are you storing all of your household belongings while you’re unable to move into your new home? This is where a larger unit, such as a 10x20 or 10x30, would be better.
Another thing to consider is whether or not you need room to add more items later. If so, perhaps look into the size just above what fits your current storage items.

Does Colorado Springs have temporary storage available?
Of course! There are several facilities listed on USstoragesearch.com that offer month-to-month leasing agreements.
Temporary mini storage in Colorado Springs is perfect if you’re moving within or to the area. Then, instead of having to keep all of your household items in your car or hotel room while you wait to move in to your new home, you can store them until your new home is ready.
This is also a great option for students enrolled at United States Air Force Academy, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Colorado College, or any other local universities. Rather than having to drag all of your dorm belongings home for summer break—which can be exhausting for out-of-state students—everything can be kept in a Colorado Springs storage unit near campus until the next semester.
What storage features should I look for?
If you have weather-sensitive items—such as electronics or antiques—look for Colorado Springs storage facilities offering climate-controlled units. The climate control feature allows you to keep your unit at a moderate temperature and humidity level so that your storage items won’t be damaged.
If you’re looking for extra security, then you will want to find a facility that has security features like individually-alarmed units, indoor units, video surveillance, or on-site management. Not only will these security features give you peace of mind, but they also discourage break-ins and theft.
Another popular storage feature is drive-up access, which is very useful if you’re storing larger items like cars, boats, or RVs. Drive-up access allows you to drive right up to your unit to get your belongings in and out with ease.
Also, if you’re going to need to get into your unit outside of standard business hours, finding a facility that offers either extended hours or 24-hour access will be a major bonus. That way, you’re able to get to your items when it fits your schedule.
Will facilities offer tools to help me move into my unit?
If moving help is something you need, use the advanced search on USstoragesearch.com. Then, you’ll be able to filter your search for Colorado Springs self storage locations that offer free truck rentals or have U-Haul affiliates. Most should have carts and dollies, too, but it’s always a good idea to check first.
