Beware of the dangers of crowd sourcing your storage

A new generation of Uber-like storage companies are appearing in the UK, with people offering their attics, garages, cupboards and other spare areas for people to keep their stuff in, at low costs for short periods of time. While this mobile app-based casual approach may be a good idea for some – allowing them to trade space for cash, it can have some serious risks for people using it.

High risk and inconvenience

At the very least there is the inconvenience factor, these people are unlikely to be offering 24-hour access to their homes or storage spaces. So, if you suddenly decide you need your golf clubs at lunch, or your treasured possessions on a fine Sunday afternoon, you are likely to be out of luck.

Then there is the risk that these people, or other members of their family might take a peek, and decide they can use or misuse your items. They are also very unlikely to be covered under property insurance if there is a fire, flood or other disaster.

Choose the traditional approach

These risks makes our traditional service a safer bet. With all types of self storage units in the Greater Manchester area, we cater for individuals, businesses and startups. We offer lockers, rooms and workshops, all in a protected and secure environment with CCTV. Whether you are moving home or having a clear out, our professional storage solution can cater for all you needs and prevent you from lugging heavy items into someone’s tiny attic cubby hole.

As for businesses who are growing or moving, our security means your documents, technology, important equipment and other items will remain secure and accessible, providing peace of mind as your plan your next expansion. Whatever your self-storage or office needs, get in touch to find out how we can work with your business to help manage your storage.

This development in the sharing economy, where people give up their space to store other people’s items may be perfect for some and useful for others. However, here at Storage World we believe the risk is too great and ultimately, we don’t think you can beat our professional storage solutions for overall service and convenience.

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
