So here’s a straightforward guide to help you understand how you can change the size of your storage unit with us anytime you need. Stay tuned for a simple, fuss-free process that will help you make the best out of your storage space.

Assessing Your Storage Needs and Reasons for Changing Size

When life throws you a curveball, your storage may need a shift. Perhaps you’re moving to a smaller home, broadening your business’s stock, or simply having a good clear-out. In any of these life events, you might need to rethink your present storage unit size. Have a good look at what you’re storing, take note of items big and small and think ahead about other things you might need to store down the line; a proactive approach can save you not only space but precious time and money, too. It’s all about adaptability and getting a storage unit that fits your present and future needs. After all, our aim at Kangaroo is to make storage trouble-free and affordable for you so that you can focus on the bigger picture.

Understanding the Flexibility of Changing Storage Unit Sizes at Kangaroo

At Kangaroo, we turn storage problems into solutions. Afraid swapping your unit might be a bother? Put those concerns aside because, with us, your convenience is the top priority, not an afterthought. Choose from over 20 varied unit sizes tailored to move with your needs, whether you want to upgrade or downsize. Whether you’ve made your decision or you need some extra help choosing the best size, our team are always more than happy to help. We’ll walk you through the transition, delivering an affordable, perfectly sized solution. Because at Kangaroo, we believe your storage should adapt to your life, not the other way round.

Upsizing: When and Why You May Need a Larger Storage Unit

There’s a time and a place for room to grow, like when downsizing your home, but not your lifestyle. Or when business is booming and inventory piles up. In each case, Kangaroo is ready for the broadening challenge. We have an array of larger units designed for these exact moments, such as our 300 ft2 unit, which is the size of a triple garage and can hold 350 medium boxes or 800 archive boxes! When upgrading, we cater to your growing needs with units that offer robust security, all without breaking the bank. Why cramp your style when you can expand with Kangaroo? That’s more space for less hassle – straightforward, affordable, and tailored storage.

Downsizing: Benefits of Switching to a Smaller Storage Unit

Sometimes, less really is more. Cleared out some clutter or sold off old belongings? Recognised you’re not fully utilising that larger unit? It might be time to downsize. Our smaller units pack a punch; they’re easier on the wallet, simpler to manage, and make finding your items a doddle. For example, if you’ve realised you just need space for a few bits and bobs, consider our 16 ft2 unit. This size is equivalent to the boot of a car, so it’s ideal for those only storing a handful of boxes.

Steps to Changing the Size of Your Storage Unit

Making a change to your storage size at Kangaroo isn’t just doable; it’s downright easy. As mentioned, simply start off by having a good, hard look at what you’ve got to store. From here, if you’re not sure which unit size is the perfect fit, that’s no problem. Our experienced, friendly team is right here to guide you through picking the best option. Once you’ve made up your mind, you can put your feet up. We’re more than happy to roll up our sleeves and handle shifting your items into your new unit. And let’s not forget the cherry on top: our price match guarantee. Whether you opt for a cosy unit or a spacious one, you’re always getting the best deal, no ifs or buts about it. No-nonsense, cost-effective storage with Kangaroo; it’s about making change easy, not complicated.
