There are many reasons you might be considering moving some of your belongings to a self-storage unit. Usually, the first thing to consider when finding the right unit is size – how much space do I need to store all of my stuff? While size is important, there are other factors to consider when choosing a unit! 

1. How and When You’ll Access Your Self-Storage Unit

Whether it’s downsizing an apartment or home, welcoming a new family member or Simplifying your lifestyle, all of these moments require that you create more space in your existing home, without selling the items. 

Knowing how often you’ll access your unit and for what purposes will help you figure out what type of storage facility to choose. We have longer opening hours on more days than any other storage company in Ireland so you get access when you need it! 

2. Location

Think about when and how often you’ll visit the unit. Is a long drive worth it to store your items or do you need convenience first? At Nesta Storage, we have four easily accessible locations across Dublin – Santry, Deansgrange, Kylemore Road and our new facility in Sandyford.

3. Security

If you’re storing valuable items, you want to make sure they’re safe. Ask about the storage company’s security monitoring and access, including staffed hours. Nesta units offer unparalleled security with individually alarmed units, unique PIN code access, and 24hr CCTV.

4. Size

Last, but not least. Choosing the right size storage room can be difficult and overestimating the space you need is common. At Nesta we don’t want you to pay for space you don’t need, so this virtual tour of the 7 most popular room sizes will help you select the right room size for you. Making an inventory of your items can also be helpful in choosing the right sized unit.
