Unsurprisingly, the number and size of the items you are looking to put into storage will obviously determine what size of unit you need. However, you might not know what that space equates to in terms of square feet.
In this blog, we’ll help you ‘unpack’ any potential confusion surrounding your storage requirements and offer you advice on what size of unit is most suitable for what you are storing.
Storage Options at GTW Storage
So, whether you’re looking to store marketing material or stock, are required to retain archive documents or just need some space while expanding, relocating or decorating – we are here for you!
You might be moving house, moving abroad, redecorating or just want to de-clutter and get organised!
We all have belongings that we don’t use every day but aren’t ready to let go of. Rather than having them fill up your loft, garage, spare room, wardrobe (or even corners of your everyday living spaces!) why not look at utilising self storage?
We’ve got a range of competitively priced personal self-storage options and we will always help you find the smallest space possible; so you only pay for what you need.
Personal Storage Unit Size
Roughly speaking, if you are moving house and have a 4-bedroom property, you will require approximately 120 to 200 sq ft of storage space. At GTW, prices start from £130 to £210 excluding VAT, per month.
If you have a 2-bedroom property, you will require approximately 70 to 90 sq ft of storage space with prices starting from £80 to £100 excluding VAT, per month.
Or, if your personal belongings would fill a Transit van, you will require approximately 30 to 45 sq ft of storage space which would cost between £40 and £55 excluding VAT, per month.
At GTW we know space is a valuable commodity for businesses. Regardless of what business-related materials you need to store, from pizza boxes to desks, we have a wide range of unit sizes.
Why not rethink your current business storage or warehouse and make smarter use of space? Whatever your requirements our business and commercial storage solutions can help.
Business Storage Unit Size
If you have a Luton van’s worth of stock to store you will require approximately 55 to 80 sq ft of storage space. At GTW, prices start from £65 to £90 excluding VAT, per month.
If you have an entire studio to store, prices start from £50 to £80 excluding VAT, per month for approximately 40 to 70 sq ft of storage space.

University and college are fun and busy times, so you don’t want to waste too much of your student life sourcing suitable storage for all your belongings, when you discover your student accommodation isn’t spacious enough.

Or, if you have slightly more possessions and don’t need them back until next term, you can make use of our Pallet Storage solution! You pack the pallet; we shrink wrap it and then store it in our secure pallet storage space. When you’re ready to reclaim your items, simply let us know and we will have the pallet waiting for you ready to be taken back to your student accommodation. Prices start at £37.50 excluding VAT per month, and if you have a valid student card, you can benefit from a 20% discount!
