Moving house is one of the most common reasons for people to choose self storage. It’s a convenient, hassle-free and inexpensive way of storing your belongings and, crucially, it’s flexible. You can keep items in a unit for a month or three years! It’s entirely up to you.

If you’re already sold on the idea of self storage, your next step is to determine the size unit you need. To help you figure out which unit is right for you, we’ve put together a list of top tips.


Organise and pack what you can


It’s always a good idea to get organised as early as possible when you’re moving home, and this applies to arranging self storage too. The earlier you can pack and organise your belongings, the easier it will be to work out what size unit you need.

Why? A 50 sq. ft. storage unit, for instance, can house in the region of 30 large moving boxes plus other furniture items. So, if your belongings are already packed, you’ll be able to more easily determine the size of unit you need than if they’re loose.
