Myth Busted! I Need A Garage Space Please


One the biggest myths in self storage is that you need a garage space to store your items. We deal with thousands of customers, most of whom are making use of self storage for the first time. It is our desire as the professionals, that we can confidently recommend the correct unit size to meet your needs, rather than the largest size or the size that is available. There are a number of reasons why people believe they require such a large space, here are a few.

  • Many people do not realise you can choose the unit size that suits your needs
  • Storage companies traditionally do not offer different unit sizes and have built only one or two sizes that customers must fit into
  • The false idea that your furniture and business stock needs more space than it will actually require
We have developed a handy self storage space estimator to assist you in making the correct choice. However we always recommend chatting to one of Store Managers as the self storage experts, so that we can help you make the best decision not only in terms of space but also price and convenience. Here are a few unit sizes to give you an idea of what can be stored in different storage spaces.
