How To Know What Storage Space I Need

Storage places today has become an answered prayer to most of us who are stressing out on where to put our extra stuff without the need to throw them away. And it's even a bigger blessing if the storage company is offering a free van for collection and return, cheaper storage price and no hidden charges! Giving you more value for less!

Since a lot of these storage facilities are now established in London, expect to have a wide selection of storage spaces, be it for business or personal purposes, depending on your needs. If you will focus on the reason why you are renting extra space in the first place, it would be easy peasy to identify the perfect space you need.

Let's take a look at the standard sizes that we, at easyStorage, are offering. I will provide you some example items that you can store in a specific storage unit space so you can have an idea on which among your store away items can fit in.

A 35 sq. ft. storage unit

If you're someone who's planning to renovate your bedroom but doesn't have the extra space to put the bedroom items while decluttering or redesigning it, this is the perfect space for you! With the size of this unit, you can pretty much fit in a twin-size mattress, side table, vanity mirror, seasonal clothes from your closet or even important documents and office supplies. You may opt to choose a shorter contract as renovating a bedroom should not take long and may even be completed in just two to three weeks.

A 70 sq. ft. storage unit

This storage space is ideal for someone who's planning to move out of the country, renting a one-bedroom apartment and you need a place to store your things while you're away. Now let's say you're going abroad for work-related reasons, you can rent this space for 6 months to a year depending on your contract. In this space, you can fit in small furniture such as a chest of drawers, a twin size mattress, sofa, small dining set, and even small sports equipment.

A 105 sq. ft. storage unit

This unit can be used for business purposes as well. This is recommended for a small office space that is planning to be renovated or looking for another stockroom for lease. Here, you can store some office desks, chairs, boxes with important documents in it, computers, furniture, etc. This storage space is also ideal for a two-bedroom apartment as well. This can pretty much fit in a king-size mattress, large appliances, and a dining set.

We at easyStorage also offer you an option to calculate the storage space you need. You can find it on https://www.easystorage.com/space-guide. Here, you can have an interactive experience in determining the storage space you need.

Visiting the storage place is the ultimate action to take if you're still unsure of the space you need or if you really want to be accurate. This way, you can physically see the space and clearly lay out the items you plan to store.

You can also ask our representatives if you still have questions as we also offer chat support available 24/7 or ask our staff personally once you have the chance to visit our storage facility.

Promos, discounts, and additional services can also help you in choosing the storage space you need. After all, we need to consider the amount of money we are going to spend on storage spaces like these. I suggest you take advantage of these promos and discounts and even those companies who are legitimately offering the no hidden charge claims. This will be a big deciding factor in choosing the storage place that will meet your standards.
