Customer FAQ – Looking to rent?

How do I know which storage unit I should reserve – which size is best?

ClickandStor® Online Rental Suite Directory offers a Storage Calculator, so you always find the storage best suited for your needs. From our home page, find the Storage Calculator tool by clicking on “Size Calculator”, seated between “Find Locations” and “Tips” on the home bar.

On the Size Calculator Page, you can select the contents you’d like to store by either using our presets or customizing your stored items.

Using the presets tool gives you a direct estimate of the storage unit you’ll need Customizing your stored items lets you select items you’ll store by room (Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room, Study, Kitchen, Garage, or Misc.)

In addition, a drop-down tool allows you to estimate the space by how you plan on organizing your unit. Find “How Full Should the Unit Be?” underneath the dining room description and select between:
  • No item stacking (Reduced accuracy but no items will hover)
  • Some item stacking (Medium accuracy)
  • Full item stacking (Best accuracy but some objects may hover)
  • After you finish making your selections, click on “Calculate” and you will receive a direct estimate of the space you’ll need.
