What’s included in self-storage pricing?

If you’re wondering how traditional self-storage pricing compares to LOVESPACE, there are a number of factors to consider.


Storage facilities in larger cities tend to cost more than those in smaller towns. The closer the facility is to the city centre, the more expensive it’s likely to be.

With LOVESPACE, our storage services all have home collection. We’ll take your stuff to the storage facility for you, so you don’t have to worry about being near it!

Unit size

Most self-storage facilities have different unit sizes to rent. The larger the unit, the more expensive it is. Units can range from lockers to large warehouses.

Typically, you’ll find prices listed by square foot. With most services, the price per square foot goes down as the units increase in size.

LOVESPACE storage units price per square foot also goes down the bigger the size.


You will have to decide how long you want to store your stuff for. Some services let you pay by the month and others offer discounts for long-term rentals. You may be able to take advantage of an introductory promotion if you’re a new customer and pay a reduced monthly rate if you take a long-term plan upfront.

At LOVESPACE, we offer discounts when you store 2+ months!


Many self-storage companies will require you to take out a policy to cover your stuff in storage in case it’s somehow damaged. Some require you to buy a policy from them directly, while others require a separate policy.

LOVESPACE offers you a number of different coverage options depending on your storage choice.

Other self-storage price factors

As well as the main costs above, there are more factors that can add up when you put your stuff into self-storage.


Some self-storage facilities may require you to pay a deposit to help cover the costs of maintaining the storage unit. In most cases, you get this deposit back once your stuff is out of storage.

Here at LOVESPACE, you’ll never pay a deposit.

Unit size

Hiring a van and driver to help get your stuff to the storage facility can be very expensive. Rather than paying a moving company, we can help.

LOVESPACE van and fuel costs are included as part of our collection fees for our storage units service, and we can deliver your stuff back to your new property too.

Packing materials

Many storage facilities offer boxes, bubble wrap and tape either at their locations or on their websites.

LOVESPACE offers high quality affordable packing materials – book them easily online ahead of your collection or if you choose one of our storage units, we offer an optional professional packing service where we can do everything for you!


Self-storage facilities are open to the public, so you’ll need a padlock to secure your storage unit, and many facilities sell these at an extra charge at their locations.

At LOVESPACE, our secure storage facilities are only accessible by our trusted network of storage professionals who collect and deliver your stuff. When you book one of our storage units, we’ll padlock your items at no extra cost.

Quality storage facilities

However much you're storing with LOVESPACE, we’re here to handle your items with care and attention to detail, as if they were our own.

Our Quality Assurance team helps make that happen. Meet Mark Skelton, who explains more.
