Why Use A Space Calculator?

You may be wondering why you should use our space calculator and the benefits of ensuring a perfect fit. We provide the space calculator tool on our website for many reasons.

The first step is to choose your need, such as if you are moving house, require vehicle storage, need business storage, or that you require more space at home. If you’re moving house, you’ll want to know the number of bedrooms and small and large rooms and how many garages. Same for if you need more storage but you’ll also want the total amount of boxes involved in this case. 

On the other hand, if you are using our facility for business storage then you’ll need to have the total number of boxes, as well as the number of small and large items you’re storing.
