What Factors Impact Self Storage Costs?

The cost of any self storage depends on 4 main factors:

 

  • the size of the storage unit you need

 

  • how long you will be storing your possessions

 

  • value of your possessions for insurance purposes

 

  • location e.g. self storage in London or other major cities will always be more expensive than local self storage facilities. But there are ways to minimise the cost by using a free collection & delivery service like the one we offer to store on the outskirts of the city.
Top 10 Reasons To Use Low-Cost Self Storage

 

We could all do with a little more storage in our lives!

Take a look at these 10 reasons domestic and business users need to rent additional storage space:

 

1. Moving House

Self storage provides a secure ‘middle ground’ when you’re moving between properties and can be as big or as small as you need it to be.

 

2. Renovating & Decorating

If a person is renovating and decorating they need to protect their belongings from paint and debris. Cheap self storage provides the perfect home for those items whilst the house is done up. Keeping your costs down also gives you more to spend on renovations!

 

3. Downsizing

If you are moving into a smaller properly temporarily you can store items until you move into a bigger property again. Or, you can store them for a while until you have time to sell them.

 

4. Having A Baby

Expanding the family can mean that you require an extra room, that perhaps has lots in it at the moment. Babies use up a lot of space so it makes sense to place a few things in storage for a short time until you can find permanent space for your growing family in the future.

 

5. Decluttering

Decluttering sometimes needs to happy quickly, in which case self storage provides a place to hold everything whilst you find the time to sell it on or divvy it out to charity shops, leaving your home clutter free in the meantime.

 

6. Space for Hobbies

Some hobbies and sports can come with really hefty equipment. With low self storage prices you get a personal storage space to keep the gear safe in a unit size to suit you, until you next get to enjoy it without breaking the bank.

 

7. Between University Terms

It may be that you are moving house between your semesters, or you’re moving to a new student rental in the next academic year but you don’t want to take everything back with you to your parents’ home. Placing your items in a student storage unit means that they are safe and secure until you return to your university town again. The low costs of self storage make it less expensive than hiring a van or shipping stuff back home.

 

8. Storing Seasonal Items

Camping kit, Christmas decorations, seasonal wardrobes and more can all take up space in the home when we only use them for a short time every year. Self storage provides a place to store those items between their uses with low storage costs.

 

9. A New Business Idea

New businesses can’t usually commit to warehouse or office space, and so cheap self storage becomes a really good idea. Off-site business storage facilities are a cheaper option, but it is also very flexible in terms of the amount of space required and has no long contract tie-ins. That means it can help businesses avoid the growing pains commonly associated with the first year of business.

10. Running an Online Business

The main issues online businesses have is storage space. Self storage enables online businesses keeping a close eye on the bottom line to securely store their stock at low storage prices.

 

10 Tips to Make the Most of Self Storage

Some of the more unusual self-storage tips to make your life simpler and more organised.

1. Handy tools

Keeping some basic stuff such as screwdrivers, a hammer, pliers and a utility knife around will pay-off when you need to remove something from your unit that needs re-assembling.

 

2. Map it!

No need for a treasure hunt each time you want to retrieve something from your unit. Simply scribble a basic map, pointing out locations for all those items you might need again. It doesn’t have t be a work of art, just a simple sketch will be really helpful. Then tack it to the wall and let your memory work hard elsewhere.

 

3. Dress for success

As it turns out, this works for beds and furniture, too. Simply cover and pad with protective materials designed specifically for them to help ensure they stay in perfect condition – just make sure you never use plastic covers as they can trap humid air underneath which can damage mattresses and other soft furnishings.

 

4. If walls could talk…

They’d say, “Welcome new boxes, but could you give us at least an inch of breathing space.” All will co-exist peacefully if you keep this distance in mind for proper air circulation when positioning boxes and larger items in your storage unit.

 

5. Divide and conquer

Allow for a clear path down the centre of your unit, placing items along the walls for easy access. Yes, you will want to reach the back part again — you know, for that thingamabob that goes with the thingamajig. And you won’t want to unload everything to find it.

 

5. Think “Front”

That is, plan to keep your frequently used items at the FRONT of your unit. Obvious really but we just had to say it… because we’ve seen what happens when you have to unload everything and unpack everything if you don’t.

 

7. Think “stack” when you pack

Make the best use of your space by stacking to the ceiling! To do this safely, pack heavy items at the bottom of boxes to provide a stable base, then place the heaviest boxes at the bottom of the stack. Voila! And, you do know, you can stack large items like beds, for instance, upright so they take up far less room.

 

8. Fume less

Drain the fuel tanks of lawnmowers, hedge-trimmers and leaf blowers before storing. Removing nasty fumes means you’ll never be angered by your oak dresser smelling like a lawnmower. Plus it makes good sense from a safety perspective.

 

9. Tip-toe is a no-no

Only bad things can happen when you’re tempted to over-reach. It’s not worth the risk of injuring yourself or damaging your own possessions. Instead, keep a folding step-stool inside your unit for accessing items stored above your head and forever hear only sweet words spoken inside your unit.

 

10. Storage within storage

Use any vacant interior space in cupboards, wardrobes, drawers and even the fridge and freezer for anything that fits. Books, lamps, tech, cushions, kitchenware etc. can all be stored in the space within other items… Just don’t forget when unloading to remove these items first .
