Storage Unit Size Guide

Next to settling on a professional, friendly service and secure premises, the most important factor you have to consider if you’re looking for self storage is: ‘What size storage unit do I need?’

Simply put, as your storage provider we want to make sure that we provide you with the space you need, and at a competitive rate too. A convenient way to assess how large a storage unit you’ll need is to use our self storage size calculator and storage size guide below.

Here at Vanguard Self Storage, we have a range of self storage units in a variety of sizes available at our facilities in London and Manchester. Feel free to use our guides to help with your storage needs.

10sq ft

This is our smallest unit which we refer to as a locker. Lockers are ideal for storing a few boxes, suitcases or bags. They are very popular with students for storage outside of term time.

25sq ft

This is our smallest storage room. It is suitable for small items of furniture and boxes. Customers moving into this size of room might be using an estate car or small van to transport their goods.

40sq ft

This room is suitable for small consignments of furniture and boxes, and might accommodate goods equivalent to a typical van such as the Ford Transit.

50sq ft

This is one of our most popular sizes. Suitable for furniture and boxes, it has a capacity similar to that of a mid-sized van.

100sq ft

This room is suitable for consignments of furniture and boxes that might be moved to store via a small truck. Often used as a room to store the contents of a flat or small house. This size of room can also offer the convenience of circulation space, if you need a room that gives you space to add or subtract items during storage this is a good choice.

150sq ft

This size of room is suitable for storage of consignments moved to store by truck and will normally accommodate the contents of a typical two or three bedroomed house. This size of room will more often than not be found at ground floor level within our stores for additional ease of access.
