Storage Size Guide

What Size Storage Unit Do You Need?

We’ve made a storage estimator/calculator below to help deciding what size storage unit will be required. All of our units have an approximate height of 8 feet (many are taller than this). Calculate the amount of space you require by using one of the parameters below;

​1) Amount of bedrooms your current house has.
​2) The amount of boxes that you wish to put into storage (based on box size of 457x330x330mm, 18x12x12″).
​3) The Van/Truck load you wish to store.
4) Go to our domestic & business storage page for prices.

If you are using a removal company, they will be able to estimate how much space you are likely to require.
