Tens of millions of people shifted to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. More than two years later, approximately 90% of workers who are capable of working from home want remote work to remain an option. With almost half the American workforce able to work remotely, it should come as no surprise that millions of Americans are renting storage units for the first time. Likewise, businesses are realizing they may save on overhead by moving to smaller offices. Whether you’re looking to save space to create a permanent functional workspace, or your business is going largely remote and you need to store business equipment, a storage unit provides the perfect solution. Here’s how to use a 10×30 storage unit to maximize your space.

How Big Is a 10×30 Storage Unit?

A 10×30 storage unit provides 300 square feet (the area of floor space). This equates to approximately 2,400 cubic feet of storage space because you can stack items. It’s larger than a single car garage but smaller than a two-car garage. A 10×30 storage unit is generally the largest storage unit that a public storage facility offers. 

Residential Use

For homeowners and renters, this large storage unit will allow you to easily store all the following contents of your home, such as the following:

  • The contents of multiple bedrooms
  • Large, formal dining room furniture
  • Unused exercise equipment (treadmills, weight machines, ellipticals)
  • Holiday/seasonal items
  • Furniture from a sitting room or den
  • Outdoor gear (skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking)

It should also be noted that you can also store vehicles, motorcycles, and other items that you may currently have in your garage, in this large storage unit. 

Commercial/Business Use

Business owners looking to downsize the amount of space they are leasing can easily store excess items, such as the following:

  • Cubicles
  • Desks
  • Chairs
  • Conference tables
  • Audiovisual equipment
  • Office appliances (refrigerators, copiers, printers, etc.)
  • File cabinets
  • Unused electronics
  • Inventory

One of the key benefits of renting a large storage unit is that you’ll have lots of space. Instead of trying to stack boxes to the ceiling in a smaller storage unit, you’ll be able to create walkways and keep items better organized and more readily accessible. 

What to Look for in a Storage Unit

Whether you choose a 10×30 storage unit or a smaller unit such as a 10×25 or 10×20, it is essential to choose a storage unit that offers best-in-class security features. When looking for a storage unit for your personal or business belongings, look for the following features:

  • Perimeter fencing
  • An abundance of security cameras
  • Alarms on each storage unit
  • Safe location
  • Pest-control
  • Climate-control
  • Onsite management
  • Controlled access
