What does a 10×10 storage unit cost in Sheffield?

If you’re new to the world of self storage, finding the right storage solution for your particular situation may not be easy. After all, there are lots of different sized units to choose from – how do you work out which is likely to be the best option, and how do you know whether the quote you’re getting represents good value?

10×10 units are one of the most popular choices for people interested in storage, so in this article, we’re going to be taking a look at how much you are likely to be able to fit into a 10×10 unit and how much you are likely to pay in Sheffield, Rotherham and Chesterfield.

How big is a 10×10 storage unit?

When we refer to a 10×10 unit, the 10 in question is 10 feet. That means that a 10×10 unit is giving you 100 square feet of storage. If you’re not sure how big that is, it’s about the size of a small double bedroom, and actually gives you quite a bit of space to work with – although how much you can get in will depend on a) how well you pack it and b) how high the unit is.

What is the likely cost of a 10×10 storage unit?

The amount you’re likely to pay to rent a 10×10 storage unit is going to be affected by a number of variables, such as how long you’re going to need it for and what level of security is being provided for the site in question. At Greens Removals, we have staff on site 24/7 and continually monitor all our units to protect them against potential intruders.

In May 2021, the Self Storage Association UK published its annual report, which included the average net rental rate per square foot per annum for different regions across the UK. 

Regional variations were fairly significant, with the most expensive rates not surprisingly being in London, where the average storage rent is £33.06 per square foot per annum. Based on that, for a 10×10 unit (i.e. 100 square feet), you would be looking at 100 x £33.06 = £3,306 per annum (£275.50 per month).

At the other end of the scale, the cheapest area is West Midlands and Wales, with an average rate of £12.24 per square foot per annum, so £1,224 for a year (£102 per month).

In Yorkshire & the Humber (which includes Sheffield and Rotherham), the average rental rate is at the lower end of the scale at £18.77 per square foot per annum, so your 10×10 unit is going to cost somewhere in the region of £1,877 for a year (£156.42 per month). Meanwhile, the East Midlands (including Chesterfield) averages at £1,571 per annum (£130.92 per month).

Remember that these are net prices – so don’t include VAT – and are average prices across all rentals – you’ll get a better rate the longer you rent for. Either way, it’s clear that in our area, you can find some of the best value storage space in the whole of the UK.
