What size self storage unit will I need ?
We know how difficult it is to estimate how much storage space you will need. When you have belongings and content spread over different rooms or lots of different size objects. Establishing how big a storage unit you will need it can be a real challenge o work out exactly how much storage you will need. Our extensive Storage Unit Size Guide page will give you an idea of how much space you will need from your self-storage unit.
We have also provided a visual aid to help you decide on the right storage unit to meet your needs. One of the aids that we find most useful is the “Vehicle Technique”. If you can fit it into a small Estate Car then a 25sqft unit could be appropriate. If you need a long wheel base Transit then a 100sqft unit might be required. At the Storage Hub if your requirements change and you need a smaller or bigger sized storage unit, then that’s not a problem you can swap accordingly. We can up or downsize the amount of storage that you are renting at any time.
How should items be packed for storage
There are two schools of thought about packing items for self storage. One says box up the items before you go to identify the self storage size requirements. Now at this point when you are boxing up goods make sure that you use some logic in packaging. Try and keep relevant items together and make sure that boxes are clearly labelled and inventories are printed on the side of the box. That way if you need to find anything whilst the items are in storage you can save yourself hours of frustration.
The other approach is to book a self storage unit based on a best guess on the items to be stored. If you haven’t got many lose items that need boxing this could be a good approach. So if your storing large furniture, beds, mattresses, garden furniture, bicycles, golf clubs this could be the best way.
Either way once you have decided on the best storage unit to meet your needs , you should make sure that your items are correctly packed before transporting your goods. With the additional transportation (in and out of vehicles, in and out of storage etc) your items should be packed in a safe and secure way to ensure that they are not damaged on the way to the storage unit.
Any fragile items should be treated with extra care, where possiblesure that your items are protected using bubble wrap or something similar. This can also be useful when items are manhandles your way or at the storage unit. If you aren’t going to need box items for a while it can also be an idea to seal boxes .
