When shopping around for self storage, one thing you should think about is that most self storage facility are the same. What we mean by the same is that the all give you the option of putting your belongings into a space at the facility. That is what self storage is, you taking your belongings and storing them at the facility, yourself. There will be subtle differences that will separate one facility from another, but for the most part, they all have the same standards. One standard is ceiling height. Unless otherwise noted, the ceiling of a self storage unit will be eight feet.
The typical ceiling height in a storage unit is at least eight feet tall so consider the items that you need to store to make sure they fit. Many customers try to stack their unit full so they do not have to pay more than they need to pay for. There are others that will just decide to get a bigger unit just so that everything is in there and they have access to it. Not many people try to stack their unit to the brim to save money. It would be the best idea, but not many people do it even though the property managers and other storage professionals recommend it.
So when you are shopping around for self storage and a facility says that they have ceiling heights of ten feet and higher, not many customers stop and say wow. They don’t say that because they know they won’t stack their belongings than high. Some will think, how can I stack my belongings that high? Will they fall on me? Most storage facilities are created equal but most customers won’t flinch or choose this one facility because of their ceiling height.
