HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED
Below is a handy guide to help you decide what size of storage unit you may need. We measure all our units in square feet. So, a unit that is 5 feet long by 5 feet wide has a floor area of 25 square feet.
We have many sizes of units available – those shown below are just a selection. If you need further advice, or have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us or give us a call on 01355 229 330 and we’ll be happy to guide you.
25 Square Feet
A 25 square foot unit is typically 5 feet long by 5 feet wide and is around 8 feet high – it’s about the size of a small hall cupboard. It’s our most popular internal storage unit size and is ideal for de-cluttering.
It can take around 40 medium-sized boxes, or a mixture of boxes and furniture.
50 Square Feet
A 50 square foot unit is typically 5 feet long by 10 feet wide and around 8 feet high – it’s about the size of a large hall cupboard.
It can take the contents of a mid-sized bedroom, including a double or King-size bed, armchair, dressing table, bedside table and a dozen medium cartons.
80 Square Feet
An 80 square foot unit is typically 5 feet long by 16 feet wide (or 8 feet by 10 feet) and is around 8 feet high. Ideal for a 1 bedroom flat – it’s about the size of a large bedroom, or half a 20 foot long steel shipping container. It can take the contents of a bedroom, armchairs, dressing table, plus lounge and kitchen items, together with 12 to 15 medium cartons.
Also available as an external container storage unit.
100 Square Feet
A 100 square foot unit is typically 10 feet long by 10 feet wide and is around 8 feet high. It’s about half the size of a standard garage and is ideal for a smaller 2 bedroom house, plus garden furniture. It can take the contents of a family room or two full bedrooms, plus garden items and a large number of boxes.
250 Square Feet
A 250 square foot unit is typically 10 feet long by 25 feet wide and is around 8 feet high. It’s larger than a one-car garage and can usually accommodate the contents of a 4-bedroom house plus garden furniture, together with garage items and cartons. This size of unit is also popular with business and tradespeople.
300 Square Feet
A 300 square foot unit is typically 10 feet long by 30 feet wide and is around 8 feet high. It’s a little larger than a 40 foot long steel shipping container and can easily take the contents of a large office or a fully-furnished 5 bedroom house. For business and trade, it’s ideal for stock and can be racked out if required.
