Self storage space, a question of volume

how self storage works

One of the most difficult decisions to make when choosing an individual storage space at Lokabox is working out how much space you need. With storage units ranging from the size of a box or cupboard to a garage or warehouse, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

If you choose a self storage unit that’s too small, you won’t be able to store all your belongings in it. If you choose one that’s too big, you'll waste money on space that you won't use. You can always increase or reduce the size of self storage space that you hire according to your needs, so it’s important to decide whether you’ll need to change size in the short term.

For example, if you store a few items in a self storage unit for several weeks before you need to add other items and increase the size of you space, it may be worth renting a slightly larger unit so that you can store everything together. The additional fees that you’ll pay for these extra weeks will make up for the alternative of having to repeat your efforts and for the time you initially spent storing your items.

What size? The art of choosing your storage unit!
