What size room will I need?
When considering what size room you will need, don’t forget to stack the items in the room. You’re only paying for the floor space, not the height. So the more things you can stack up, the less floor space you will use, and the less you will pay.
To help you choose the right room, if you have the time pop into our store and the staff will show you a couple of different sizes.
Or if you’re short on time, there is a size estimator/example drawings on our website.
