Storage Unit Size Guide

Unit Sizes

You might just have a box or two of excess possessions to put into storage, or you may need somewhere safe for the entire contents of your home. Whatever your storage requirements, National Storage has a unit to suit anyone’s needs – large or small.

We offer a wide range of storage unit sizes, from the compact 1.5m x 1.5m (ideal for a small furniture set or boxes of documents) to the expansive 8m x 3m (great for storing vehicles, the contents of a whole home, or virtually anything else you may need to put into storage).

National Storage’s New Zealand centres generally offer the following storage unit sizes:

  • 1.5m x 1.5m
  • 2m x 3m
  • 3m x 3m
  • 5m x 3m
  • 6m x 3m
  • 8m x 3m

Storage Units vs Storage Containers

If you’ve made the decision to clear the clutter in your home or business, you may be considering hiring a self-storage unit or opting for a storage container. While a portable storage container may be handy in some cases, a unit within a storage centre is usually more convenient and economical.

Self-storage units provide security and are managed by a team of storage specialists, features that are generally not offered at container facilities. While a storage container might allow you to keep your items on your own property, having an unsightly and obtrusive container in your yard is hardly going to solve your clutter woes.

When your container is stored remotely, you are required to wait for it to arrive when you need to access your items. Self-storage centres have the convenience of early-morning to late-evening access (and sometimes 24-hour access) so you can come and go as you please.


Services Available for Storage Unit Renters

Not only can National Storage provide you with a convenient and affordable storage unit. We also offer additional handy services including:

  • Receipt and dispatch for commercial customers
  • Insurance for storage unit contents
  • Complimentary use of a move-in trailer.
