Using the Go Mini's Storage Calculator

Go Mini’s offers simple and affordable portable storage solutions, but sometimes calculating the right amount of storage space you need, isn’t all that simple. Our interactive storage calculator helps to provide you with a container size suggestion based on the number of large and bulky items you need to place into storage.


Once you’ve landed on the storage calculator page, you can toggle through the various rooms listed across the top and add items to your list.

Based on average size calculations for these items, we’re able to make a suggestion on the best container size option for your rental storage needs.

Once you’ve added all your items to the list click calculate and then the size suggestion will be calculated, based on your inputs.


Once you’ve calculated your storage needs, you can click book now or quick quote (at the top of the calculator) to get a quote or reserve your Go Mini today.
