Once you’ve determined that you need more space in the home or the office, you need to decide how much space you need. While each person’s need for space is unique, there are a few basic guidelines to help you select the best unit size for you.
Small self storage units
Any unit smaller than 35 sq ft can be considered a small storage unit, matching the size of an average garden shed (or smaller). These units are the perfect extension of the home and provide a safe and secure space for students on vacation or homeowners during a renovation.
You’ll be surprised by how many belongings can fit inside a small storage unit, including large furniture items such as dining room tables and chairs. If you’re looking for a safe place to store garden furniture, seasonal items or extra household items, then a small self storage unit is perfect for you.
Medium self storage units
Medium self storage units typically range from 50 sq ft to 100 sq ft. A medium self storage unit can comfortably hold the contents of an average two-bedroom flat. Homeowners can store a sofa set, garden furniture as well as large appliances like fridges and washing machines. These units are a cost-effective solution for temporary storage during a renovation or relocation.
Businesses also benefit from medium self storage units. By offering a safe and secure space to store inventory, office clutter and filing cabinets, businesses can save money on unnecessary office space.
Large self storage units
Large self storage units vary from 100 sq ft to 200 sq ft (or bigger). As a large self storage unit, a 200 sq ft unit can fit the contents of a five-bedroom home with a little bit of wiggle room. While homeowners benefit from these self storage units during large-scale renovations, they are particularly useful for business owners who use large units as an affordable alternative to warehousing.
Large self storage units are perfect for storing big, bulky items, business merchandise and palletised goods at a fraction of the cost of expensive warehousing.
