Self storage tips for landlords

Every landlord in the Manchester area has to carefully consider how to make the best use of the available space in their rental properties. You may have to consider decluttering a property, or perhaps you need to store furniture in a safe and secure environment for new tenants. One good option is to use a self storage company in Manchester. Below we share some tips on using self storage when you’re a landlord and why it’s a good option.

Storing wooden furniture

As a landlord, your properties will feature lots of wooden furniture. If you need to place chairs, tables and wardrobes into storage for a long period of time then it’s a good idea to wax them before storing them away. Doing so will help to both nourish and protect the wood. It’s also a good idea to dismantle any larger pieces of furniture so that they can be wrapped and stored more easily in the storage space.

Storing mattresses

As a landlord, you will go through a lot of mattresses and it is important that they are stored correctly. Ideally, they should be kept in specially designed mattress bags that help them to keep their shape, but it can also help to stop them from absorbing any moisture that is in the air.

Choose self storage units that are located near you

It makes sense to rent a storage unit near to where your rental properties are located. This makes moving items much easier, plus it will help to lower the cost of travel expenses. You will also be able to access your belongings as and when you need to.

Security and peace of mind

Using a self storage unit, as opposed to a room in your house or garage, is preferable as it is more secure and safe. Self storage units are locked and often have 24/7 CCTV surveillance. Your property is stored in a safe, damp free and secure environment.

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.
