How much storage space do you really need?

Are you planning to rent a storage unit to store your items? Do you know how much storage space do you really need? Yes! That's the big question here! But don't get too distressed. easyStorage already has the answer for you.

Determining the exact storage space you need is probably one of the challenges you need to get through when planning to store away your belongings. Just by merely segregating which among your things should be in store, for donation, and to be thrown away can be really stressful. But I bet once you've gone through the segregation process, it will be the jumpstart in identifying which storage space you really need.

There are lots of storage facilities rising nowadays. Some of them have advanced features, usually available on their website, where you can calculate and determine the storage space you need, even without visiting the unit. This gives you the "preview" of what fits in in a storage unit.

Here at easyStorage, we offer an easy and hassle-free way to calculate and determine the storage space you need. Let us take a look at the smallest to the largest storage unit space we have that will surely suit your every need.

1. A 35 sq. ft. storage unit

This is equal to an entire pod. This is roughly equivalent to a home closet. Suitable in storing items such as twin-size mattresses, boxes, and other important documents or even office supplies.

Below is the list of 35 sq. ft. (or 1 pod) storage unit prices per week, depending on the location.

• Greater London - £18.50/week

• South East - £16.00/week

• North West - £13.00/week

• Midlands - £17.50/week

2. A 70 sq. ft. storage unit

This is equivalent to 2 pods. A one-bedroom apartment is ideal for this storage space. You can pretty much fit in a small dining set, chair or couch, a twin size mattress, and even a small sports equipment.

• Greater London - £37.00/week

• South East - £32.00/week

• North West - £26.00/week

• Midlands - £35.00/week

3. A 105 sq. ft. storage unit

This is equal to 3 pods. Perfect for a two to three-bedroom apartment. Approximately, you can fit in a king-size mattress, dining set, and even some of your large appliances and garden furniture.

• Greater London - £55.50/week

• South East - £48.00/week

• North West - £39.00/week

• Midlands - £52.50/week

4. Calculate the storage space you need

Now, if you are an accurate person and having a hard time estimating in which storage unit size your things will fit in, don't fret because the good news is, you can calculate the storage space suitable to the number and types of items you are going to store away. Here at easyStorage, we have a feature available on our website where you can key in the number and type of items that you want to store. This will automatically calculate the dimensions of those items and will even show you virtually in which pod those items will fit in, including the storage unit size suitable for your needs. Hey! How cool is that?

Now that I have listed some of the standard sizes of a storage unit, hopefully, this will be of great help in omitting the stress out of the equation in finding that perfect storage space for you! Let's all aim for being economical, shall we?
