It is ideal for storing a range of items such as dining room tables and chairs to garden furniture such as barbeques and benches.
50sqft– A 50sqft storage unit is approximately half the size of your average garage. You can expect to be able to store the contents of a one-bedroom flat. This includes storage for items such as a king-sized bed, desks, cupboards or general office equipment and documents.
