Self Storage Space Estimator

Helping you to make the most of your storage space.

We’re all individual, and have different requirements when it comes to storage space. To cater for a variety of customers, and, so you only pay for the space you need, most Self Storage centres have a variety of space sizes.

The space estimator is designed to help you easily work out how much storage space is right for you.

Here’s all you need to do…

Fill in the number beside the article for each item you will be storing. Multiply the number of each article by the cubic metre space of each item listed in the space estimator. Write each answer in the ‘Total’ column. Add all of the ‘Total’ columns to give you the amount of ‘Total Cubic Metre Space’ you will need. Now you know the amount of cubic metre space your stored items will take up.

Remember this is just an estimate, the amount of space you need, will vary depending on the type of goods you have, how accessible you want your space to be and way you fill your space.
