With more and more people living in the UK now, the population is growing, which means that each family has less and less space overall. With that in mind, it is no surprise that self storage is so popular, as business and domestic users recognise the benefits of flexible, reasonably priced secure storage space.
If you’re still not sure if self storage is for you, take a look at these top 10 uses for domestic and business users and, with our permanently low self storage prices, you might just be pleasantly surprised:
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.
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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
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.
6. 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!
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.
8. 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.
9. Between University Semesters
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 uni town again. The low costs of self storage make it less expensive than hiring a van or shipping stuff back home.
10. 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.
The above are some of the most popular reasons both businesses and domestic users like to use self storage. In a growing country, space is at a premium and, with low storage costs, self storage has a use for most businesses and families. How would you use flexible, fairly priced storage?
