Place your items in a secure storage space in 4 steps
How much space will you need
Studio flat – minimum 1 container (40 sq ft or approximately an average garden shed)
1-bedroom property – 2 containers (80 sqft or approximately a home shopping delivery van)
Small 2-bedroom property – 3 Containers (120 sqft or approximately a small single garage)
Large 2-bedroom or small 3-bedroom property – 4 Containers (160 sqft or approximately a large single garage)
Large 3-bedroom property and above – 5 containers and beyond (approximately 200+ sqft)
If you need to store items and furniture from a studio property, then a single container (about the size of an average garden shed) should do it. It is spacious enough to fit medium-size furniture, sofas, wardrobes, kitchen appliances, mattresses and boxes. A single container has the capacity to fit 35 standard boxes. Usually, this type of move is done with a single Transit van.
Based on our experience, two containers should be enough to store all furniture, items and boxes. Again, this move is done with a single Transit van.
Usually, 3 containers will suffice to fit all the belongings from such a property. Keep in mind a 4th container might be necessary if, for example, the house has a lot of outdoor furniture and amenities. This type of move is done with a Luton van.
For properties of such size, we recommend 4 containers and possibly a 5th depending on the bulkiness of your furniture and household appliances. This type of move is usually done with one Luton and one Transit van.

What our storage solutions in London include
At Fantastic Services, we believe that everyone should experience a stress-free move, regardless if you’re a tenant or a big company. For bigger jobs, we might arrange a video survey over the phone. This will limit the chance of errors and it will make the quote more accurate. Then we will dispatch a removals team that will collect and move your items to a secure, climate-controlled warehouse.
Your belongings will be stored in clean and secure wooden crates. Each is approximately 40 square feet or the size of an average garden shed. A member of the warehouse team will ensure your items are carefully placed in the storage facility. Our storage company spaces are equipped with CCTV surveillance systems.
This measure is to monitor your belongings at all times and provide peace of mind to you. The removals experts can then deliver your equipment, furniture, or other items to your address upon request.*Note: While booking a Storage service with us, our sales agent will ask you about the estimated value of the items you would like to store. This is entirely in regard to insurance.

End of tenancy cleaning
Furniture assembly and disassembly
If you need a hand with your move but don’t want to flood your new home with boxes just yet, combine our home removals and storage services. A team of removal specialists will arrive with a tail-lift vehicle to help you with the loading, moving, and unloading of anything from furniture and appliances to glassware, heavy music instruments, and fragile pieces of art. They can then take any items you don’t currently need to our secure storage facility and deliver them on a preferred day.
Ensure that your belongings will safely travel the distance from your London property to our storage space with the help of skilled packing specialists. The crew will provide all necessary materials on the spot, ranging from bubble wrap and tape to boxes of varied sizes and protective furniture coverings, depending on what you need to be moved.
If you want to get your deposit back but haven't yet found a new place to call "home", schedule our end of tenancy cleaning service together with our affordable storage solutions.
Since you need to empty your property from personal belongings before the end of tenancy cleaning session can start, we will dispatch a team of movers to relocate everything you have into the nearest warehouse we can offer, for as much time as you need.
Once the coast is clear, several fully equipped cleaners will arrive at your address and clean the premises up to an industry standard to get your tenancy bond back in no time.
Renovation work can be messy, especially if furniture is in the way. Whether you need to place flat-pack furniture into a London storage or items that are already assembled, we have you fully covered. If you stored flat packs and you are ready to receive them back, the specialists can bring along all necessary tools to assemble your furniture on site, if requested.
Video Surveys From Experienced Movers
In order to ensure a smoother moving process, we can do a video survey for your convenience. Instead of sending a surveyor for inspection to your place, we can see all we need on camera via live footage. Just use your smartphone or tablet.
