So, you’ve got too much clutter lying around the house. You want it out of your way but getting rid of it completely is out of the question so you decide to put it in a self storage unit. But working out how much space you are going to need to pay for can be tricky and you don’t want to end up paying more than you have to. Fear not, as this selfstorenewcastle.com blog should help you try and work out just how much space you’re going to need.
The smallest unit is 25 square ft which works out at 5ft x 5ft. This is the equivilent to a large estate car fully packed to the brim with your possessions. So if you can fit it all in a car then this personal storage option is for you.
35 square ft is the next size up, which works out at 7ft x 5ft. On average this amount of space is equal to the amount of space in the back of a Transit van, so if you have large items but not that many of them it would be best to go for this size.
If you need more space than this, then the next option is 7ft x 7’4ft or 50 square ft. In terms of size this is similar to the back of a Luton van. This size will comfortablely hold furniture from a home but will require some stacking.
Next up is a 75 square ft unit, working out at 10ft x 7’6ft. On par with the space in a 7.5 tonne truck this size (and the remaining other two) are more for industy and commerical needs.
The final two unit spaces are 100 square ft and 150 square ft which are equal to a 10 tonne truck and a larger 10+ tonne truck respectively. These are definitely more suited to industry use and not for storing household clutter.
Hopefully this has made deciding on your unit size a bit clearer for you. If you need any more information feel free to get in contact with the selfstorenewcastle.com team!
