Size Guide

It can be quite tricky trying to figure out how much storage space you’ll need for your goods. Especially if you haven’t used self-storage before.

But don’t stress! You’re in the right place. We’ve put together this handy size guide, with full unit dimensions to help you measure up, as well as an indication of how much each unit is capable of holding.

Have a look through the guide to weigh up each of our storage units – and please do get in touch if you’d like any further advice from us. We’re always happy to help!

160sqft Storage Unit


A full-sized 20ft shipping container, these are the largest sized units we offer and give you plenty of room to work with. For those big house or office moves, bustling businesses with lots of assets, garages away from home… the list goes on.

Typically stores the contents of a:
  • 3-4 bed house, or
  • 7.5 tonne lorry, or
  • large single garage
  • 160sqft  |  14.4m²
  • 20ft × 8ft × 8ft (L × W × H)
  • 6m × 2.4m × 2.4m (L × W × H)

80sqft Storage Unit


With these units, you get half a shipping container to work with. These are the perfect mid-sized unit – not too big that you’re left with lots of unused space, but not so small that you can’t fit enough in.

Typically stores the contents of a:
  • 2-3 bed house, or
  • Luton box van, or
  • half a single garage
  • 80sqft  |  7.2m²
  • 10ft × 8ft × 8ft 
    (L × W × H)
  • 3m × 2.4m × 2.4m 
    (L × W × H)

40sqft Storage Unit


Our handy quarter-sized units, you might be surprised how much you can store in these! Just like our other two unit sizes, you’ll also have 8ft (2.4m) of height in these, so you can stack things up to optimise your storage space. Perfect for decluttering or when you’re redecorating a room or two.

Typically stores the contents of a:
  • 1-2 bed flat, or
  • Transit van, or
  • outdoor shed
  • 40sqft  |  3.6m²
  • 8ft × 5ft × 8ft 
    (L × W × H)
  • 2.4m × 1.5m × 2.4m 
    (L × W × H)
