How to Use the SMARTBOX Space Estimator
When getting ready for a big move, there’s certainly a lot to take into consideration. Flawless planning leads to a stress free move, after all, and you need to be on top of all incoming factors well in advance of your move. At SMARTBOX, our team focuses on bringing you the simplest, most effective solutions to ensure your moving needs are met.
One of the largest issues we, and anyone who has ever moved, always encounter is how much space you need for your storage. Everything needs a place to be, and preferably one that makes the items safe and easy to locate when you need them. Need some help calculating the storage you’ll need? We’ve got you covered!
Measuring Your Storage Unit’s Space
A great, brass-tacks solution, our space estimation calculator takes into account your entire moving inventory and helps you to find the answer to exactly how much space you’re going to need when storing or moving. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it can give you all of the answers you need!
The operation of our calculator is as simple as:
- Go through each room category thoroughly and check off any items that are relevant to your move. Tables, sofas, televisions; make sure you represent the number of items for each space accurately. If you’ve got three refrigerators (for some reason), be sure to indicate the correct number.
- Be sure to mind the details in the miscellaneous section. All tools, odds and ends, and small items need to be represented for the most accurate estimate possible. If it takes up space, it needs to be on the calculator.
- Take into account additional cubic feet and represent it on the box provided. This is essentially your “wiggle room”, taking into account things you may have missed an allowing for small errors.
- Calculate! Hit the “Calculate Now” button to see your estimated needs. Quick and easy, just like we said!
Do keep in mind that this is an estimate, so your results may vary. The SMARTBOX space estimator is there to give you a solid idea of your needs. For more exact figures and information, work alongside one of our specialists by contacting us today!
