More and more people require self storage each year. Some are outgrowing their property but with the high cost of moving are looking to store instead of sell up. There are also an increasing number of small businesses being set up, and premises are one of the largest outlays. With self storage we pay the rates not you, making our space extremely cost effective.
People are also reluctant to dispose of furniture they no longer use, as getting on the housing ladder is very expensive, and many are storing in preparation for when their children make that jump and will need all the help they can get. If the builders are due, and you’re worried about brick dust, footprints, cup marks etc or just securing your valuables during this time then a self storage unit would be ideal to house your valuables whilst the work is ongoing.
If you have a new addition to the family on the way and need to completely clear the spare bedroom, you don’t have to dispose of it. You’re probably going to need it again, or you can sort through and sell it in your own time. Are you a garden worker, builder, painter, plumber, window fitter, or decorator? Are you worried about leaving your tools in the van overnight? If you rent a container you can drop off your tools at the end of the day and pick them up the next morning.
Summer gives way to autumn and the grass has been cut for the last time. It’s time to put away the garden furniture. The space in the shed seems a lot smaller now you’ve bought an extra lounger, or a larger table, and you don’t want stuff falling on your car in the garage.
Students will often collect various items during their stay at university. If it’s not their last year, when the summer is over they’ll need it again. If that’s the case and you are unsure who might be hanging around in your rented accommodation over the summer period, a self storage container local to your university accommodation is an ideal solution. Many students choose to have a gap year and spend it travelling before they enter work. Many find they have nowhere to store their belongings between the end of university and finding a house on their return. A container is ideal for this.
Maybe you’ve been offered the chance to work away. If you own a property you’re likely to want to rent it out for the duration you’re away. It’s often better to let the property unfurnished, store your furniture safely, and not have to worry about deposits and damages. A container will provide you with peace of mind whilst you are away.
