Find out which size of storage unit you need.

Either, visit Southwick and speak to Becky. She will be able to advise and guide you on which size of storage unit you need. You can visit and book a unit on the day, but it’s advisable to do so in advance for the greatest choice of sizes.

Or, if you can’t get to Southwick, use our simple size guide to help work out which size of storage unit you require. You can easily reserve a unit online using this process, or give us a call to discuss further if you need more advice. No problem at all.

Plan how you’ll move your stuff. Do you need to hire a van? Are you going to use a removal company? Becky can always help you find a van rental or removal firm, just ask.

Line the walls of your unit with the big items of furniture first.

Remember to use all available space – open the doors on wardrobes and stack boxes inside. Fill all the drawers in chests of drawers.

A fabric sofa can be stored safely on its side to save space.

A leather sofa should be stored upright – storing it on its side will make it sag.

Store appliances like fridges or washing machines with the doors wedged open.

In a large unit, leave a centre aisle so you can move goods quickly within your storage unit.
