FAQ


 

   Ada Attic Storage frequently asked questions.

 

What size unit do I need?

Some things to consider when making this decision are how tightly you are willing to stack and pack your belongings.  The ceilings in our units are 9’ high.  You may want easy access to your goods from time to time.  A larger unit would allow for that.  Professional movers can give you a very good idea of how much space you will need.  For reference purposes, a 10 x 20 unit is about the size of a one stall garage, and would possibly accommodate a three bedroom house, again depending on how you pack and stack, and whether you are storing additional appliances or things from a basement, home office, den or garage.  Sometimes it is helpful to actually see the units.  We would be happy to show you our different sizes to help you with your decision.

Why climate control?

If you are storing long term, (a year or more), you may want a climate controlled unit.  Also, if you are storing musical instruments, antique books, artwork or cameras, you might want to consider a climate controlled unit.  Furniture and household goods store very well in non-climate controlled units.  

Can we store a car or trailer in your units?

Yes!  10 x 20 units are perfect for almost any size car, and our 10 x 15 will take smaller cars (ie. Miata or MG).  Trailers can be a tight fit.  Door sizes for the units are  8’ 6” wide x 7’ 1” high for the 10 x 10 through 10 x 30 units.  We do not have outdoor storage available for trailers or vehicles.
