Renting a self storage unit can be a useful move for many reasons. You may want to make some space in your home or business or be moving house and need somewhere to keep things out of the way. Whatever the reasons for needing a storage unit, one of the things you need to think about is the space you need. Here we take a look at what size storage unit you will need.
Deciding on a self storage unit size
BoxPod Space can provide a variety of storage units in different sizes to suit your needs. Depending on what you want to store we can offer a container or yard to suit. The first thing you need to consider is how many items you want to store. If you want to declutter your home, a small storage container rental may be suitable. Our containers and yards start from 20ft upwards so you can find the right storage unit. Estimating the storage unit size you need will depend on what you are thinking of storing. A simple breakdown of storage unit size would be:
- Small household items – 20ft
- Contents of a 2-bedroom house – 100ft
- Vehicle storage – dependent on vehicle size (motorbike, small car etc)
Choosing the right self storage unit
If you have decided that you want to rent a self storage unit
finding the right one is essential. If you plan on storing a vehicle you will want to check the dimensions of the storage locker first. Rent a unit with ample space to get around the vehicle so it is easy to get in and out. For storing large household items, such as sofas and beds, choose a unit that will hold all of the items you want to store. You can surround larger items with small household things so you won’t need a unit quite as big as the room you are taking the furniture from.

Storage containers or storage yards will have to be secure. You are leaving your valuable items and treasured family memories there, so security is vital.
