Personal Self Storage
There are many reasons why people need a self storage unit in the UK: moving to a new place, building an extension, renovating, relocating to a new area, downsizing, relationship breakdown – these are just some of the reasons. It can be difficult to know how long you will need to store your possessions because these sorts of events are unpredictable. It’s well known that moving home can be an unnecessarily long process here in the UK; and improvement or renovation projects almost always take longer than expected.

How To Make The Most of the Space in your Self-Storage Unit ➤
Making the most of the space in your storage unit
Find out how to make the most of every bit of space in your self storage unit because even when you have the cheapest storage and are benefiting from low self storage prices it still makes sense to only pay for the amount you really need to store your belongings.
- Document Everything in your Storage Unit –
You’re not trying to reinvent Aladdin’s cave here, you should be able to find everything you want in your self storage unit especially the items stored in cardboard boxes that can be difficult to find at a later date. You need a complete inventory that documents where each item is stored in whatever way you find most helpful for reference purposes, but there’s no point in writing a list on paper if you’re going to lose it. Instead why not create your list in the ‘notes’ app on your phone, use your diary or an Excel spreadsheet – whatever is good for you. Make a diagram of your storage unit, write a reference with numbers or even Disney names that correspond with boxes – as long as you’re fully documenting locations then you have a way to identify where your items are and retrieve them when the time comes. The only rule is to make sure you keep your list or diagram up to date if you occasionally remove items from your self storage unit or move items around.
- Keep Access Clear –
If you have a large self storage unit it can be tempting to fill it completely, but you need to make sure you keep a pathway to the back of the unit to enable you to easily gain access to all of your belongings without having to unload the whole storage unit to get to something at the back. Keep any items you think you may want to access regularly at the front of the unit.
- Use All The Storage Space –
Remember it’s not just about the square foot floor area of our storage units. They can be high so make sure you fill all of your vertical space in the unit by stacking items safely. Our 50 sq ft, 100 sq ft, 140 sq ft and 160 sq ft unit for instance is 237cm high (that’s 7′ 9″) so about as tall as the average ceiling height in a new property. If you are stacking boxes then make sure that they are sturdy enough to take the weight of what is placed on top of them. If stuff in boxes is being stored long term, they may damage the boxes below or start to lean if the stack is not secure. One option to prevent this is to stack on top of sturdy items like a dining table, other smaller tables or a chest of drawers.
- Have A Little ‘Useful’ Area –
Have a little area within the storage unit you rent where you keep scissors, a cardboard cutting knife, tape, labels, pens, paper and any other useful stuff for unpacking and packing cartons back up. This saves you having to leave the self storage unit to pack and unpack. A useful tip is to leave some of your foldable garden furniture in the area – a small foldable table and chair if you have them.
- Protect Your Belongings –
Make sure you package your belongings properly whenever they are being moved to a different location. Use materials like foam, bubble wrap, sturdy cartons and labels. A storage provider will usually offer additional services such as a complete selection of packaging supplies. Different items need caring for in different ways so do your research – especially if your items are valuable, or they have sentimental value and cannot be replaced. Make sure you use a sturdy padlock and keep the key in a safe place. Most reliable storage providers will recommend insurance cover depending on the replacement value. This comes at an extra cost. The self storage industry has changed and our storage facilities are a smart alternative to self storage in London – and will save you money.

10 Interesting Facts About Self Storage ➤
A trustworthy storage provider offers secure storage units at high quality self storage facilities at a great price. All with great customer service and convenience – but you probably knew that already. However, there are some aspects of renting space you probably don’t know about so here are 10 interesting facts about self storage:
1. Secure Storage Units Can Be Indoors or Outdoors
Self storage units come in a wide variety of different settings. Some are huge buildings with lockable units inside with a lock and key. Some are like parking lots with rows of garages. There are also some self storage facilities with outdoor shipping units that you can store in.
2. A Storage Unit Can Be All Shapes And Sizes
You may envisage a room sized unit when you think about an inexpensive self storage unit, but they come in a variety of different sizes. You can actually get low-cost storage units as little as a gym locker and as big as a football field, plus everything in between with a corresponding range of self storage prices. Typical storage unit sizes include 10 sq ft (the size of an average estate care), 35 sq ft (the size of a garden shed), 50 sq ft, 70 sq ft, 100 sq ft, 140 sq ft (the size of a large garage).
3. Temperature Control is Available
Some people don’t realise that temperature control is a common aspect of good storage units. These facilities enable you to keep your unit at a temperature you feel is best for the contents. For example; wine storage might be better cooler.
4. A Storage Unit Is Closer Than You Think
You may have driven past huge storage providers at major London junctions, but there are many more storage businesses in other locations. There is almost always low-cost storage closer than you realise.
5. You Can’t Store Everything
You can store most things in low-cost self storage units, but not everything. The restrictions are actually quite straightforward and the rules are not dependent on storage location, type of storage unit or facilities. Organic materials like food and plants can never be stored in a storage unit. Explosives like fireworks are also not allowed, nor any flammable materials or chemicals, including paint. It is always a good idea to check with the facility.
6. It Isn’t All Corporations
Although many great self storage places are owned by large corporations with sites at prominent London locations, plenty are not. The differences are important as there are factors to consider before making a decision and there are benefits to both types of secure storage units.
7. Deliveries Can Be Accepted
You may be interested to know that some self storage companies will actually take deliveries for you day or night – storing items until required. This can be very handy when it comes to keeping operations running well.
8. Help With a House Move
Many self storage places offer help when moving to a new home just like a removals company – making the process more stress free. This can be as minimal as selling great packing materials or as much as offering complete packing of your belongings and furniture moving services just like a removal company. This can be so handy if you are moving and want to utilise both moving services and store some stuff in a self storage unit to keep your belongings safe.
9. Contracts Are Flexible
Self storage contracts are extremely flexible at most facilities, and can be easily adapted depending on your needs and what you want to store in a secure storage unit. This is handy for growing businesses, student storage units during university holidays or for customers who like to pick and choose how they use self storage; or simply want to store more stuff.
10. Easy To Move To a Different Sized Storage Unit
If you do need less space one month because things are slow, you’ve moved stuff from your student storage to a new rented students house, or you’re actually renovating and need more space to store large furniture, that isn’t a problem. It is very easy to increase or decrease your local storage space month on month by upsizing to larger units or alternatively downsizing to smaller storage units, so you only ever pay for the space and the unit type you need. Self storage facilities are a handy service where your belongings are safe in a storage unit. Most storage providers say insurance cover is highly recommended depending on replacement value but remember the cheapest quote is not always the best. Another alternative is to extend your home cover or commercial insurance policy.

Benefits of Cheap Self Storage When You Work From Home ➤
Self Storage For People Who Work from Home
Here’s how to utilise cheap self storage to help you work from home more comfortably both short-term and long-term.
Working from home is the dream for many, and is becoming much more of a reality as technology allows workers to base themselves at home. Being an entrepreneur or start-up, is likely to begin as a working from home position.
If you are going to be working from home soon, or you plan to work from home, you could probably use some handy advice on helping this process get going. After all, the dream of working from home is often not the reality. You do need to put a bit of work in to get it to work well.
We can’t solve every problem you’re sure to encounter during this transition. What we can do is give you a tipoff about a really handy service you can use when you are working from home, and that is self storage. Cheap self storage has a ton of benefits for anybody who works from home, here’s how:
1. Home Office
With cheap self storage you can easily place everything from your summerhouse, spare room or garage to create space for your new office. Once you have self storage setup, you can take any space in your home from domestic to professional, in as little as an afternoon.
Stock can take up a lot of space in the home, which can be a real problem for family life. If your new working from home endeavour is causing you to have a lot of stock in your house, self storage is a really great idea. With the lighting, security, reception and temperature control, self storage is likely a safer place for your stock anyway.
It can be hard to stay organised at home, because all of your business things are amongst everything else. This can be detrimental to a good working life. Having somewhere separate for your work things can be really useful. A space like self storage where you can visit, get files or information, and switch it with completed work, is handy.
4. Stock Safety From Pets And Children
Pets and children can accidentally damage and move work items. This can be as small as replacing some paperwork, or as huge as losing a client. Cheap self storage protects your most precious work items from accidental damage by your family.
5. A Bit Of Space
Working from home is great, but sometimes it’s nice just to have a bit of space from the family, or being in the same space everyday. Self storage gives you your own private four walls to spend a little bit of time pottering around.
6. Room To Buy Things Cheaply
You can use cheap self storage to buy things in bulk when they cost less, giving your business a bit more money to play with in other areas.
7. Room To Grow
Cheap self storage helps you work from home because it gives you room to grow. It enables you to utilise cheap storage space without committing to warehouse space or office space. You can instead work from home or at cheap hot desking units whilst keeping your stock and other items in an affordable, flexible space.
Working from home can be amazing, but you do need to make it work for your individual needs. Using self storage, and other affordable services, you can create the space you need to nurture your next business venture.
Self Storage vs Loft Storage: Which is Best? ➤
Is your loft storage really working for you? Or could cheap self storage be a better option?
If you have a loft in your house it’s likely that you have found it very tempting to use loft storage for anything and everything in there. From Christmas decorations, to camping equipment, the loft serves as a storage space for pretty much anything, doesn’t it?
Have you considered cheap self storage as a potentially better option than loft storage?
Whilst the loft is something that doesn’t cost any extra money to store things in, and it is within your house, there are extra benefits to cheap self storage you might want to consider:
The Space On Offer
Your loft is likely to only be the same size as the overall footprint of your house. This offers a lot of opportunity for storage, but it is restrictive when it comes to storing lots of items or particularly large items. Cheap self storage, however, can be as big as you like which is a real benefit.
Ease Of Access
There are some rather big issues with storing items in the loft when it comes to the access. For example, it’s unlikely to be easy to store a large sofa up there. Can you imagine trying to get a large sofa into the loft? Being unable to move items in at ground level can be a real problem, depending on what it is you want to store. Access is not a problem though, when it comes to cheap self storage.
Whilst the loft may be able to store a few light items it may not be the best option when it comes to storing heavy items. The floorboards in the loft may mean that it isn’t actually safe for you to store certain things. Storing too much in a loft can result in you compromising the integrity of your homes structure.
Items are as secure as they can be in your loft but they will never be as secure as they are in a self storage facility. In a self storage facility you have CCTV alarm systems, 24-hour reception, multiple lock points, floodlights and more. Storage facilities are in the business of keeping your items secure so your home is never likely to be quite as secure as a self storage unit would be.
In a home flooding, environmental damage, pests, and fire, are more likely to be an issue for your storage than they would be in a self storage facility. That is because self storage facilities have huge safeguards in place to protect your items from this kind of damage.
There are many extra benefits to having a cheap self storage unit such as:
- Help moving things
- Equipment like trolleys that you can borrow
- Reception taking your deliveries out of hours
- Paperwork storage and destruction
- Moving services
A cheap self storage unit does cost more than using your loft for storage. However, for a reasonable cost every month it could be worth considering if you want to access some of the benefits that you can only get from a self storage unit compared to your loft.
Could your storage setup be better with a cheap self storage unit? Think about the benefits today to potentially boost your home organisation tomorrow.
