Storage Unit Size Matters

Picking the wrong size for a storage unit isn't just a minor inconvenience—it can be a costly error. Opt for a unit that's too large, and you're paying for space you don't use. Go too small, and you defeat the whole purpose of renting storage, as you won't have enough room for all your items. To avoid these pitfalls, a clear understanding of the space you need is crucial. Here's a quick overview of storage unit sizes to help you choose:

35 Sq Ft

Ideal for the contents of a bedsit- think of a 2 seater sofa, double bed frame & mattress, TV, boxes of clothes, books, or files.

70 Sq ft

Perfect for a two-bedroom flat's worth of belongings. You can store large items like sofas, wardrobes, mattresses, cabinets, sideboards and appliances.

105 Sq ft

Equivalent to a standard home garage, this unit can secure everything from a sizable office to the furnishings of a two-bedroom home.

140 Sq ft

With space ample enough for a three-bedroom house, you can store large furniture sets, big-screen TVs, and other bulky items.

Storage Efficiency Saves Costs

Many find the decision to opt for self-storage challenging, not realizing that determining the right unit size is where the real challenge lies. A smaller unit might save money initially but could be impractical later if you need to add stuff later. Conversely, too large a unit could lead to unnecessary storage costs.

Itemize everything you plan to store to better understand the space required.
