  • Break down furniture into smaller pieces if possible. Cover the furniture with sheets for protection
  • Store large pieces of furniture vertically to save space

  • In most cases you can stack tumble-dryers on top of washing machines
  • Unload the largest items and place them against the walls
  • Frequently used items should be placed near the entrance of the storage unit to make them easily accessible at all times
  • Leave an aisle within the unit for easy access to your items
  • Store your most valuable items out of sight at the back of the storage unit or if small enough within drawers of furniture
  • Store boxes containing fragile goods inside wardrobe

Figuring out what storage space you need is never easy. You might not need as much space as you think to begin with, or you might be surprised by how just how much space all your things take up! Here at Cheap Storage Manchester, we see a lot of people get it wrong the first time, because it all depends on what it is you want to store and how well it’s going to stack together. A lot of people find themselves surprised when they first enter their storage unit and it’s either far too big or too small for their needs.

We recommend getting in touch with one of our experts for a quick chat on the matter. Having a decent idea of how much storage space you need can end up saving you money by getting it right the first time. That’s why we have an online storage calculator that you can use to give you an estimate of how much space you need. Using our calculator is a great place to start, but it helps to have some point of reference to begin with. 

It can be hard to visualise how much space you might need. Here’s a quick guide:

  • 25 sq ft unit

This is roughly the size of a full family car load, or a walk in cupboard. This is a great amount of space for storing things like extra boxes, mattresses, books, records/files and other miscellaneous items. 

  • 35 sq ft unit

About the size of a full transit van. Similar storage space to a small flat. 

  • 50 sq ft unit

Imagine filling up your garden shed. That’s similar to a 50 sqft storage unit. You can fit a lot in there. Good for storing the contents of a studio apartment, with room for a number of boxes, kitchen appliances and chairs.

  • 75 sq ft unit

Enough space to fill a large, luton size van. Great for storing the contents of a one bedroom flat. Imagine filling up an entire parking space with storage items. Ideal for furniture, including a sofa, chairs, a small dining set, bicycles and sports equipment. Enough storage for a 2-3 bedroom house. 

  • 100 sq ft unit

Think of filling two full transit vans, or a large garage. Ideal for storing for two bedroom spaces. Can store king-sized mattresses, dining room furniture and other larger appliances. Enough storage for a 3-4 bedroom house. 

  • 150 sq ft unit

Enough space to fill a large removal van, or two parking spaces. The ideal choice for storing large TVs, sporting equipment up to and including a motorbike, large furniture, a dining room set, and even musical equipment like a piano or drum kit. Enough storage for a 4-5 bedroom house. 

Home Storage

If you plan on moving house, redecorating or renovating in the near future, you might be in need of some cheap and secure home storage. A lot of families find their homes cluttered over time with belongings they don’t need, and not all homes have good self storage options. That’s why it’s worth looking at the range of different storage unit sizes available at our facility here at Cheap Storage Manchester. 

Furniture takes up a lot of space, and if you’re planning on storing a lot of things you might want to look at one of our larger sq ft units. One the other hand, if you just want to store a few boxes, perhaps some miscellaneous family belongings, books or records, a much smaller unit will cover your needs! 

Business Storage

If your business is expanding and growing quickly, first of all: congratulations! Second of all, you might find yourself with a lot of surplus inventory, find yourself overstocked and in need of some extra storage. A lot of businesses operate entirely online these days, which means you inherently have less storage space available. 

Knowing what kind of storage unit is right for your business is entirely dependent on your needs. For instance, if you need to store a lot of files, records and documents, a relatively small storage unit should have you covered. On the other hand, if you have a lot of surplus inventory and equipment, depending on your kind of business you might need a larger storage unit! The best thing to do is use our estimator to gauge how much space you need. 

Student Storage

If you’re studying in the city of Manchester or the Greater Manchester area you might find yourself in need of cheap storage. Whether you’re going on a gap year, moving into new accommodation, or just going on holiday for a while, we understand that different students have very different storage needs. 

If you’re moving from halls to second-year accommodation, you might not own that much and you might be able to store all your things in a small storage unit over the summer. Because you gain belongings over the course of university, if you’re heading for a gap year after graduating, you might have a lot more things needing to be stored. In any case, we guarantee the most affordable student storage options in the Manchester area!
