Storage Unit Size

“How much space will I need?”. That’s the most common question here at Global Self Storage Alexandria. So, on this page, we have tried to help you with this question by providing some of the more common storage unit sizes as well as examples of what would fit into them.

If you anticipate accessing your goods reasonably frequently, remember not to pack your goods too efficiently, because that will make it harder to access your goods after they’re packed.

All of our self storage units have a minimum height of 2.8 metres.

Please note that self storage providers (like us) typically measure storage units in square metres but removalists measure in cubic metres. That’s why the below list also provides both of these measures for all storage unit sizes listed. Please also note that these storage unit sizes are only a guide – we have a MUCH greater range of storage unit sizes than just those shown here.
