Self-storage is a great option if you are considering storing things that you are not using at the moment but still want to keep. It is also a great option for homeowners who want to declutter their house but do not want to throw away the stuff. If this is you, you may be wondering how much is self-storage in the UK for and if it is something that suits your needs. So read on for insights.

While the cost is an important factor it is not everything one should be looking at. Other factors like the level of security, 24-hour access to your container, and the standard offered are also deciding factors that you should be looking at. We recommend talking to the company personnel before the final decision.

What is the average self-storage cost in the UK?

There are many storage facilities in the UK more than willing to provide you with a free no-obligation quote for your things. To get the best idea of the costs it's best to decide what you’re going to be putting into the storage.

The cost is determined by the amount of storage per square foot that you wish to keep and for the length of time that you want to keep it there. For instance, a storage container of 50 square feet will usually cost you anywhere from £12 to £25 per week. The price will go up to £90 and for the whole year may cost you till £1000.

What factors affect the cost of self-storage?

There are several factors that affect the cost of self-storage, like:

  • the size of units for storage
  • duration of storage
  • any additional services that are not included in the general service
  • your location

Average self-storage cost

Based on an average house unit of a three-bedroom house for 100 square feet, the costs should be around £44 for a week, £190 for a month, and around £2,310 for a whole year.

For an average 4-bedroom house on the other hand the average storage costs for 200 square feet are about £88 for a week, £380 for a month, and around £4,620 for a year.

But again, these are general averages, and the prices may go up or down. You will have to call the storage facility to tell you the exact costs for your storage.
