Determine what things you need to store

Before anything else, determine what and how many items you will be storing. Create a list of everything and take as many measurements as possible. This will enable you to roughly visualize how much space you will need. It is also important to identify any items that are valuable or fragile. These can include antiques, expensive furniture, valuable artwork, books, or important paperwork. Things like these should be well packed, clearly labelled and protected. Having a clear understanding of what you need to store will help you make a more informed decision when selecting your storage unit.

Exploring typical storage unit sizes to meet your needs

Bigfoot Self Storage offers a wide variety of storage unit sizes to cater to varying personal and business storage requirements. Below, you’ll find a detailed breakdown of different storage unit options and the items they can accommodate.

Small storage units (approximately 25-50 sq.ft)

These units are typically no bigger than the size of half a garage or a typical garden shed. These compact units are perfect for personal use and can store the contents of a small room or studio flat, including smaller furniture like chairs or desks, appliances like microwaves or televisions and moving boxes.

Medium storage units (approximately 75-100 sq.ft)

Ideal for the contents of a 1 to 2-bedroom flat, these medium-sized units can comfortably store larger furniture like beds, dining sets, sofas, and additional home appliances. These units are also suitable for businesses looking to store a limited amount of inventory or office equipment.

Large storage units (approximately 150-200 sq.ft)

These larger sized storage units can store the contents of a 2 to 3-bedroom home, making them perfect for families or individuals who require extensive storage during a house move or renovation. They are typically the size of a large garage space. Businesses in need of more substantial inventory storage or warehousing may also benefit from these spacious units.

Extra large / bulk storage units (from 250 sq.ft plus)

These units will provide enough space to accommodate the contents of a large 4 to 5-bedroom home. They are also suitable for commercial and equipment storage including goods on pallets.
