Finding SmS Storage

Tips on finding the perfect storage for your needs...

What kind of storage do you need?

Size: In the first instance you're going to have to work out how much space you are going to need.  To help you with this have a look at out Storage Info section or use our carefully crafted size guide and calculator.

Duration: Think about how long you’ll need to store your things bearing in mind that most people drastically underestimate this!

Type: You’ll find all manner of storage spaces listed on including attics, basements, garages, barns, spare bedrooms and even beach-huts. Obviously it can be tricky to store things like bicycles in attics, so the type of storage you’ll need will usually depend on what you’re storing.  

Once you’ve given some thought to all three of these points you’ll be ready use our advanced search tools... here comes the exciting bit!
