Renting out your spare room? Start the process with self storage

There’s a reason that Manchester is the heart of the ‘Northern Powerhouse’. While the city has always been home to countless students and young professionals, many more are expected to flock into the area with the impending HS2 and HS3 rail lines. In fact, the population is set to shoot through the roof – and all these newcomers will need somewhere to live. For budgetary reasons, it’s likely that a high number of people will set their sights on renting a room in a house or flat. Therefore, why not cash in on their presence by offering your spare room? The process is easy and self-storage units can help. Here’s how:

Making room

In Greater Manchester, a high proportion of housing was built between the late 1800s and 1938. The buildings – in inner-city areas such as Hulme and Cheetham Hill, as well as towns like Middleton – usually feature two large bedrooms and a box room. Don’t be fooled by the name of the latter, though, as the third room isn’t really large enough to store many boxes. That’s why you should consider moving any possessions into self-storage units instead.

The illusion of space

Even if you can pack away your belongings in the home, it doesn’t exactly send a great message to prospective tenants. The market has become so flooded with spare rooms that your property will need to have the wow factor over other options. If you put your items into self-storage, you’ll create the illusion of space – and this will be very attractive to possible tenants.


Tenancy agreements can be signed on a month-by-month basis. This means that your lodger could pull out at a moment’s notice. If this were the case, you don’t want to regret having scrapped all your possessions to make room for an extra person. Instead, you want your items to be in self-storage so that they can easily be brought back to your property.

It makes sense!

Self-storage units make loads of sense when you’re renting out a room. As well, ours are so affordable that the rent made from your tenant should be more than enough to cover the cost.


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.

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.
