People use storage for a number of different reasons. From relocating to renovating, self storage is a great way to free up space at home or the office, but how do you decide which size unit is the right fit?
Before deciding on a storage unit size, it’s important to understand the different unit sizes available and how much space you will actually need. As self storage experts, we’ve put together a list of the most common storage unit sizes and how they can meet your needs.
A small garden shed (25 sq ft unit)
Storage unit rental isn’t only necessary for large amounts of space. Sometimes, you just need a small unit to keep a few seasonal items. If you’re looking to store Christmas decorations, valuable tools or sports equipment, then the 25 sq ft unit is a perfect solution.
An average garden shed (35 sq ft unit)
A 35 sq ft unit can fit the contents of a studio flat, including big furniture items like a dining room table and chairs. If you’re planning on travelling for a long period of time or renovating a section of your home, then this unit will have you covered.
Half an average garage (50 sq ft unit)
Did you know that a 50 sq ft unit can fit all of the contents of a one-bedroom flat? While it’s a popular option among homeowners who are relocating or downsizing, it’s also a great solution for businesses. Excess assets, office furniture and stock are safe and secure in these units.
Half of a standard garage (75 sq ft unit)
The contents of an average, two-bedroom flat will fit snug inside a 75 sq ft unit. The high ceiling design means that boxes can be stacked on top of one another, making space for larger pieces of furniture.
Standard garage (100 sq ft unit)
Cut down on expensive warehousing costs and rent a 100 sq ft unit instead! These units can fit the contents of an average two-bedroom home, small office or small warehouse. As your business grows or your needs change, our flexible lease agreements will allow you to downsize or upsize your unit hassle-free.
One and a half garages (150 sq ft unit)
The majority of the UK population lives in semi-detached houses, many of which have three bedrooms. That’s why the 150 sq ft unit is such a popular choice, meeting the needs of many homeowners around the UK. These units are also a common option for businesses that need a secure and central space that can be used as an operational base.
Standard double garage (200 sq ft unit)
A 200 sq ft unit is the perfect solution for large warehousing needs. It’s also a great size to hold the contents of a large four- or five-bedroom house. The unit fits bulky furniture, merchandise and even palletised goods.
