In the United Kingdom and Europe, the majority of self storage customers are residential. House movers probably account for 50 percent of the entire market and outside London and major European cities, “the lifestyle” customer is pretty much nonexistent. If half of the self storage UK marketplace is those moving from home to home, it’s scary to think people are getting nervous about over-inflated property values.

Most self storage providers have systems in place that will help you decide for yourself how much space to take. These calculators or estimators can be found on the majority of self-storage web sites. Others will describe their units in terms that will help you visualize how much space you need []
