Choosing the right size storage unit: Wigwam's size guide

At some point in life, we’ll all need self storage. Moving home, downsizing, and renovating are all instances when a home demands a little bit of extra space. Businesses can also benefit from using business self storage units to store stock or use them as an occupational base. 

The biggest challenge of renting a self storage unit is choosing the right size for your needs. To give you a better idea of the spaces available and which size will be the perfect fit for you, we’ve created a simple size guide. Let’s jump in! 

Different unit sizes

At Wigwam, we’re proud to offer a wide selection of unit sizes, ranging from 16 sq ft to 1 000 sq ft. Whether you need to hold a few boxes or you’re looking for an affordable solution for warehousing, a self storage unit is the perfect solution.

Smaller units, which measure up to 50 sq ft, are great for holding a few extra household items. Storing a few boxes, appliances and filing cabinets in a small storage unit opens up space and helps to remove clutter.

Units measuring up to 100 sq ft could be considered medium-sized units, and are similar in size to a standard garage. Perfect for holding the contents of an average two-bedroom flat, these units are useful for short-term and long-term rental. 

Large units at Wigwam measure up to 1000 sq ft and can be used for a variety of different purposes, including warehousing. 

Tips to consider when choosing a self storage unit

It can be difficult to visualise how much space you’ll need. Consider the following tips when picking the best self storage unit for you.

Make a list of items for storage so that you’re able to pick a unit size more accurately

Estimate the number of boxes that you’ll need to hold all of your belongings 

Get a larger unit rather than a smaller unit so that you have space to move around and pack your belongings safely
