Do I need a Fort Worth storage unit?
If you’re running short on storage space for any reason, you might need self storage. But self storage has more uses than just holding the extra contents of some closets at home. Storage units are often used during times where a more permanent living space hasn’t been found or isn’t move-in ready. This is a common occurrence with job relocations.
Storage units also provide the perfect space to store your seasonal items, sporting equipment, cars, ATVs, RVs, and more, allowing you to free up space in your home or garage. And for the student living on-campus at Texas Christian University or another Fort Worth college, storing the contents of your dorm room locally is much easier than packing it all up and lugging it home over summer break.
What storage features might I need?
You’ll have to consider the items you’ll be storing to determine which features to invest in. For example, if you have large, heavy items to store, drive-up access will make unloading and loading much easier. If you need frequent access to your unit, check the facility’s access hours to ensure you’ll be able to get to your unit when it works for you. For some, this might make finding a facility that offers 24-hour access worthwhile.
For storing valuables, you may want to consider Fort Worth storage facilities that offer additional security. Video surveillance, gated access, on-site management, and individually-alarmed units are among the features that facilities in the area offer. You can even check to see if your facility offers a storage insurance package.
When storing antiques, old furniture, documents, or photographs, a climate-controlled unit is a must. Heat and humidity can cause permanent damage to many sensitive items. Climate control keeps your unit at a constant, medium temperature and humidity level so your items are well-protected from weather changes.
What storage unit size should I get?
Before you look into Fort Worth mini storage sizing, you should look at what you plan to store. Larger items like mattresses or appliances will require more space, but if you’re just cleaning out a closet or two, then you may be able to work with a smaller unit size.
For those looking to store the contents of a dorm room, a 5x5 or 5x10 unit will do. For the largest storage needs, such as business storage or storing the contents of a mid-sized to large home, a 10x20 to 10x30 is a good place to start.

Is mobile storage an option for me?
If you’re looking for very short-term storage or are moving, mobile storage could be the best option for you. There are a number of mobile (sometimes called portable) storage options in the area.
Mobile storage is a unique, convenient alternative to traditional self storage. The unit is delivered to your home or office, and then you get as much time as you need to fill it. Once the unit is full, you can keep it at your home or office or call for it to be picked up and stored at a storage warehouse.
Mobile storage is great when you can’t, or don’t want to, rent a truck. Check out USstoragesearch.com/mobile-storage to find the mobile storage for you.
