How Much Does Personal Storage Cost?

With space becoming more expensive by the minute, self storage is a cost-effective way to free up room at home or expand your business on a budget. While upscaling is an expensive investment, renting a storage unit is a risk-free and affordable way to acquire more space.  

At Storage World, each storage unit cost is determined by a few factors, the most important being the storage unit size.

  • Small storage units, ranging from 25 sq ft to 50 sq ft, are perfect for storing a few boxes during a move or while decluttering. Availability of these units cost between (£20 – £29 exVat), with our flexible packages starting at £10 per week plus taxes and fees!

  • Medium size units, ranging from 75 sq ft to 100 sq ft, measure the same as a standard garage and cost between (£39 – £49 exVat). These units are perfect for storing family heirlooms, sports equipment, or patio furniture over the winter.

  • If you’re looking for more space, then our large units, which reach 200 sq ft and cost between (£50+ exVat), are the perfect solution. If you’re moving home and need to store your belongings during the transition, we guarantee that our well-maintained, modern self storage units will give you complete peace of mind.

Moving House

If you’re desperate to declutter, or you’re about to renovate and need somewhere to store your furniture, just call us and we’ll reserve the space you need.


Before Selling:  Minimise furniture to create space and pack away the things you can manage without for a few months. Decluttering will show off your home at its best and help with selling.


Before moving: Pack non-essential items and put some things in storage. Having fewer boxes at home will make moving day less stressful and will allow you to unpack at your leisure.


In between houses: We can store the contents of your whole house if needed in one of our larger units.


After moving: if you’re looking to renovate or decorate, it makes sense to keep some things in storage to keep them out of harm’s way and give you space you need.

Student Storage

Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Alex Jones

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
