Frequently Asked Questions related to unit sizes

How are your dimensions given?

Unit measurements are given length, width, height.
Measurements are external. They are generally accurate, but of course, if you are storing an item that you know is going to be very close to the maximum dimensions of your unit, you may need to come and measure precisely, before bringing the item into store. If you aren’t sure what size you need, do come to see us and we can show you into the various units to help you get a good idea of the space.
The dimensions are given on our Sizes page, in Metric and Imperial. The cubic and squared measurements are given also.

If there’s anything else we can help you with, do pop in and see us or give us a ring 0118 932 8328.

How much space do I need?

Firstly, measure your largest item, to get your minimum height and length of unit.

Then visit our Sizes page, to see illustrations of approximate capacity related to house and vehicle size or for businesses, numbers of pallets or archive boxes that can be accommodated etc.

If you have any other queries, do pop in and see us or give us a ring 0118 932 8328.

What if I need more space, or less?

Many of our customers do make these changes. Subject to availability, we can easily arrange upsizing, downsizing or taking additional units.
Do take a look at our Storage Unit Sizes page to work out which size unit is right for your current needs or call our friendly storage experts now on 0118 932 8328.

Should I hire a first floor unit or a ground floor unit?

The main considerations for this are price, loading or unloading and access.
First floor units are cheaper, but are accessed via a moveable flight of stairs. If you have a company helping you to load your items or your items are not especially large or heavy, a first floor unit might represent better value. But if you are doing all your loading yourself and have large, heavy items of furniture, first floor storage might not suit you so well and a ground floor unit would be more convenient for you.
Do come and have a look to get an idea of how you would get on. Our sales staff will be happy to show you the access arrangements for a first floor unit so that you can choose for yourself.

How do your storage units compare to room storage?

Our storage containers offer an excellent alternative to room self-storage. Almost all of our units are direct-access, meaning that you can drive right up to them and there is no additional charge whatsoever for this. Our prices compare extremely favourably. We are located out of town, on a main road so you don’t have to struggle with town traffic to get to us and there’s plenty of space for vehicles of all sizes.

How big are the doorways to the units?

All of our units, with the exception of the Extra Small size, have an 8 foot double doorway on the front. Both doors open fully to allow easy access for large items. There is a step up into the unit, but we can provide ramps if you are intending to store a car.

Do visit and ask to see our show unit, to get a good idea of how it would be to load and unload. We have a tape measure that you can borrow if you need to take particular measurements.

Can I store a car in a storage unit?

Yes. Below you will find a video of us tucking our Marketing Manager’s car away in one of our units!

Do come and measure if you need to check the width of the car will be accommodated or give us a ring if we can help with any other queries 0118 932 8328.

What types of vehicle can I store?

We have customers storing classic and luxury cars, ride-on garden equipment such as mowers, quad bikes and motorcycles. If you would like to store a vehicle taller than a standard car, you would need to measure carefully to make sure that it can be accommodated – do pop in if you need to ask questions or look at a unit yourself.

Do you have 40′ units?

No, we don’t – our largest unit is the 30 footer. Information about all our sizes is here.

If you need more space, our friendly, experienced staff are happy to talk through what combination of units would suit you – pop in and see us or give us a ring 0118 932 8328.

What if I only need to store a few bits that I can’t accommodate at home?

We have a small number of extra small units that are 8′ high and deep but only 4′ wide. These are equivalent to a large understairs cupboard (but they are 8′ high all the way back, so there’s no chance of bumping your forehead on the underside of the staircase!) or a modest garden shed. They are very popular and are an excellent price. Head over to our sizes page for more information…

Do pop in and see us or give us a ring 0118 932 8328 if we can help with any other queries.

Illustrations and estimates for what each unit can accommodate are given as a suggestion, only.
