Choosing the right sized storage unit for your needs

Our customers often ask us how to choose which self storage unit size will be right for them.

We have put together some video and pictorial guides to help you pick the right size self storage unit for your needs.  Don't forget that you can easily swap your unit whenever you need to, so if you find you need more, or less, space as your requirements change, just let us know.  We can even give you a hand moving your belongings.

Our guides cover both our indoor and outdoor self storage units. 

If you have any queries you can always contact our customer service team, or call in to our facilities in Chorley or Kendal and take a look around for yourself.
