How Self Storage Can Be Used

Self Storage was once most commonly used by Domestic movers, especially during the heights of the property boom – 2000 to 2006. However the current economic climate has changed the landscape and sees a modern day facility occupied by a number of different users with a vast array of reasons for doing so, with a particular increase in business users:-

For the general public, the more common uses are typically:

  • Short to medium term storage when moving home – house or flat
  • Short to medium storage in the event of redecorating rooms in your home, or building works such as putting in an extension or converting a loft
  • Long term storage when renting out your house or flat (or when extended holiday or working abroad)
  • Decluttering
  • Downsizing and therefore storage of furniture or items you do not intend using
    Out of term storage for students who need to vacate their accommodation – typically overseas students or those whose homes are “out of town”
  • Storage of possessions after a death
  • Splitting possessions after a divorce
  • Extra space for low space accommodation such as apartments, studios or shared occupancy


Whilst for businesses:

  • Short term storage while moving or redecorating offices
  • Storage of files and archived records
  • Storage of exhibition stands, sales materials or redundant collateral
  • For retailers and product manufacturers, storage of current or out of date stock
  • Office downsizing
  • A holding solution for charity donations prior to sorting, sale or transit
  • A holding solution for materials to coordinate contract work
  • An environment from which mobile workers can be managed
  • Secure space to hold tools, machinery or goods

Alternate uses for a unit also extend to:

  • Workshops or a place or work – step up from the home, garage or even the garden shed!
  • Holding solution for mail order return items
  • Studios for artists, sculptors or designers
  • Sound-studios for musicians
  • Online traders and a place to manage orders, stocks and returns

So the limits are not with how Self Storage can be used, but more the imagination of how customers might want to use the space available.


Secure Storage Solutions

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.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

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.
