How much storage space do I need?
Using our online storage space calculator, you can calculate how much storage space you need.
Studio flat – 1 storage container 40 sq ft
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.
1-bedroom property – 2 storage containers (80 sq ft or approximately a home shopping delivery 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.
Small 2-bedroom property – 3 storage containers (120 sq ft or approximately a small single garage)
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.
Large 2-bedroom or small 3-bedroom property – 4 storage containers (160 sq ft or approximately a large single garage)
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.
Large 3-bedroom property and above – 5 storage containers (approximately 200+ sq ft)
