What Size Of Storage Container Will I Need?

Kettering Self Store has the answer!


Large and bulky items tend to look like they’ll take up a deceptively large amount of space when they’re spread throughout your home. Where as smaller items, when collected together, might actually take up more room than you first envisioned.

Neglecting to plan how much space you will require within your storage unit could result in a higher pay rate than originally planned for the additional space you are using, but might not necessarily need.

In the worst-case scenario, you could end up in a panic when you show up to store your items only to realise that it wont all fit, especially if it’s an emergency!

In order to combat this, Kettering Self Store has come up with a handy calculator, complete with visual guides to help you get over the headache of blindly estimating what size of storage container you will require.
