self storage vancouverOur Storguard Vancouver units range from 3’x 3’ x 3’ to 13’ x 13’ x ‘10’. If you need storage in Vancouver, Storguard has plenty of dimensions and size combinations to suit your needs, including affordable mezzanine lockers that are ideal for light items and are located above floor lockers.

How do you know what size locker you need?

Storing your items is part art and art science. Use creativity to make the most of your storage space. For example, remember to use the full height of your storage. Some creative but safe stacking is appropriate. To protect your health and your items, put heavy, non-fragile items at the bottom.  And consider leaving walking space between some of your items if you’ll need to retrieve some of them during their stay with us.

Here is a guide to the size unit you should choose for your Vancouver storage needs.

3' x 3' to 5' x 9' (Mezzanine)
Our smallest size lockers are 9 sq ft to 45 sq ft. They are the ideal units for boxes, bags, and sports equipment. You’ll be able to fit a bicycle inside, for example, along with a few extra boxes or other items.  Note that the contents should be relatively light, however, since they are positioned above floor lockers. Units like these are perfect for seasonal items and student storage needs.

5' x 10' to 6' x 10'
These storage lockers will work well for storing the contents of a bachelor or one bedroom apartment

8' x 10'
You should be able to fit the contents of a large 2-3 bedroom house in one of these.

10' x 10'
One of these 100sq ft storage units will accommodate the contents of a 2 to 3 bedroom house. Alternatively, they are a great size for business shelving.

over 10’ x 10’
Our largest units have a floor area of around 170sq ft. This should accommodate the contents of an average 4-bed house. They are also fantastic for commercial storage needs.

Once you’ve packed your car or van, you’ll have a better idea of how much space you need. We can accommodate any changes to your requirements if necessary. However, you don’t need to wait until you arrive to ask our staff for help. Give us a call or contact us by email with your plans and our friendly staff will provide expert advice to fulfil your Vancouver storage needs.
