Is your craft work taking over your home?

Do you feel like your crafting hobby is taking over your home?

You know you have a problem when all your surfaces are covered in glue, glitter, paper, cardboard, paint, canvases, and brushes.

Perhaps you’re a fan of the Great British Sewing Bee, and your home is stacked to the ceilings with material, ribbons, sequins, threads, and patterns. Maybe you’re an amateur potter, a potting shed wood worker, or an avid furniture restorer.

There has been a huge increase in the numbers of people taking part in craft hobbies in recent years, fuelled by the need to make do and mend, the increase in the number of crafting programmes on television, and a boom in the upcycling of furniture and clothes.

Vintage is now fashionable, and we all want something hand-made. Upcycling can also save us a lot of money on buying new from the High Street, which is another huge bonus.

The estimated number of craft-based businesses in the UK is in excess of 23,000 with an estimated income of £457 million. More than 25,000 people are employed in UK-based craft businesses, more than three quarters of whom are sole traders, and a government report estimated that the numbers of craft businesses rose by 20% in the past ten years. That, of course, is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the numbers of those carrying out activities like paperwork, scrapbooking, sewing, embroidery, knitting, felting, wood carving and metal working without being businesses.

The scale of those involved is numbered in the millions. A recent survey of 1,000 crafters showed another key reason why the hobby is booming. Almost a third of those questioned said they took up their hobby to relieve stress.

Many of us who have craft passions find we’re simply running out of space for our equipment and stock. We have the answer. Our site is just half a mile away from Manchester city centre and has 30 unfurnished offices, 20 lockers, 150 workshop and industrial units and 300 storage rooms. You can rent a self storage room from the size of a shower cubicle to the equivalent of half a tennis court, so clear some space and get crafting!




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% 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.
