Size Estimator

Visualising exactly how much space you need for your items can be difficult, so we have created a size estimator to help you. It is worth remembering that when visualising how much space you will need, the height of the storage unit from floor to ceiling can also help you to fit more items than you might expect into the space, especially with some forward planning about the order in which you move items into the space.

Talk with one of our experienced Storage World Storage Advisors, who will help match your needs to our best value offer and room size. If your storage needs are longer term, Storage World can refer you to one of our professional removal partners who are experts in maximizing space and helping you reduce your total stay costs.

This is usually used for personal items, clothing and toys, small items of furniture, perhaps the contents of your small garden shed while you’re replacing it.

50 square feet:
This will accommodate a small amount of furniture, perhaps a sofa or two, some business supplies, or several boxes. You can fit around 120 archive boxes into this storage size without allowing aisle space. The contents of a Ford Transit van are usually around this footage and will fit into this space.

75 square feet:
You could fit around 100 or so archive boxes into this space, with aisle space in between rows for easy access. Alternatively, the contents of a normal sized bedroom or a Renault Luton van.

100 square feet:
This would fit the contents of a one-bedroom house, or around 160 archive boxes with aisle space allowed for access. This is usually the contents of the average garage.

150 square feet:
This would contain the contents of an average two-bedroomed house, or around 250archive boxes with aisle space allowed for access. Alternatively, the contents of a 7.5 tonne van.

200 square feet:
This would fit the contents of a three-bedroomed house, or around 300 archive boxes with aisle space allowed for access. Alternatively, the contents of about eight Transit vans.

300 square feet:
This would fit the contents of a four or five-bedroomed house, or around 500 archive boxes with aisle space allowed for access. This is typically used for commercial, light industrial clients. These spaces can be used for warehousing, trade counters or pick & pack operations.
