How much does self storage cost?

Self storage can be a convenient solution if you’re in need of some extra room at home. Or you just want to keep your belongings protected in a clean and secure space. But it’s not as simple as just renting a unit and moving your things into your chosen storage facility and then voila! 

Just like any service, cost is always a factor to consider, especially in the current financial climate. We’ve outlined some main aspects you need to consider before you start looking for a self storage unit.

Why do I need self storage?

There comes a certain point in everyone’s life when they may need some extra space to store their belongings. In any case, you may need to rent storage space if you are:

  • Looking to free up space
  • Moving house
  • Downsizing
  • Renovating your home
  • Travelling
  • Going to University
  • Relocating your business
  • Storing business stock

We have a wide range of storage options available, from domestic storage for homes to business storage for local businesses who need extra space.

Prices can vary between storage companies, though there are several factors that can affect storage unit costs, such as…

The size of the unit

Your storage unit’s size directly impacts the rental price, as larger the unit, the more it will cost to rent each month. For example, a 25 square foot unit will cost significantly less to rent than a 100 square foot unit. 

Before you rent your unit, it’s best to have an idea of what you intend to store, which will have a big impact on the size needed. Make sure you measure each of your items to gauge how much space is needed. If you have larger items, such as furniture or appliances, like a fridge or washing machine, you will need a larger unit to accommodate them.

You may want to opt for a slightly larger unit for any future items you need to store, that way you won’t have to move in and out of units. Not only that, but you’ll be prepared if you suddenly need more space for storing items.

If you’re not sure what unit you need, take a look at our unit size guide.

Length of storage

Rental rates can vary depending on the amount of time you plan to use it for. Short-term needs, such as during a move or renovation, may only require you to rent a unit for a couple of weeks or even a month. In which case, it will be relatively affordable than if you need space for a year or longer.

We pride ourselves on providing flexible storage for our customers, so you can rent a unit as long as you need it and we are more than happy to help.

If payment is monthly or upfront in advance

Payment for self storage units can typically be made either monthly or upfront in advance, depending on the company. Some companies may require you to pay for your storage unit on a monthly basis, while others may allow you to book for longer amounts of time.

If you choose to pay upfront, it may actually be cheaper per month than if you were to rent month to month.
