Unlocked Storage Potential

5 WAYS TO UNLOCK THE POTENTIAL OF SELF STORAGE IN THE UK

The world, for most people, is all about finding time, money and a space to live in. With the UK economy finally picking up as we head into the New Year, now is a great time to think about taking back the spare room from a home-run business, leading an exodus of loft junk or finally getting around to finding a new home for all those seasonally necessary odds and ends!

Self storage in the US for both business and personal use is considered to be as normal as having a garage for the car or home office to keep tabs on a family-run business. Why is it normal? Because it can offer an incredibly convenient, cheap, flexible way to permanently or temporarily access extra space away from the home or main business premises.

Here in the UK, we’re starting to see a superb trend for small-scale self storage spaces entering the market. These spaces tend to be well-secured with varying contract lengths, 24-hour access and highly customisable rental fees.

But are they really for everyone? Here are five of the most common, effective ways you could use a self storage facility.

1. FREE UP SPACE IN THE HOME

The UK property market is on the up, but it’s moving slowly. More homeowners are stuck on the property ladder and in desperate need of more space. Why not head over to a self storage unit to store seasonal items like Christmas trees or patio furniture? Or even some of the kids’ stuff now they’ve gone to university?

2. EXTRA SPACE FOR YOUR START UP

The UK is a nation of small businesses. It’s estimated the number of British small businesses increases by around 250,000 annually! Start ups are going to be a vital part of economic recovery, so why not go down the self storage route to minimise costs and test the water?

3. EXPAND YOUR BUSINESSES

Been running a small business from home? House full of stock? It’s great to see a home-run business reach the point where expansion is on the cards, and a self storage room could be answer to expand a little at a time. Short contract lengths, versatile rental agreements and a quiet place to work – sounds perfect!

4. SECURELY STORE VALUABLES AND KEEPSAKES

Love that oak sideboard you inherited but not got space for it in your current home? Self storage can be superb for providing a secure, reliable, easily accessible space for things like spare furniture and collectables.

5. MINIMISE THE STRESS OF MOVING PROPERTIES

One of the big three stressful things to suffer through in life, those moving house tend to be open to any hint, tip or nugget of wisdom that could minimise the hair tugging and anxiety involved in a big move!

A super trend we’re seeing since the arrival of low cost self storage facilities is for homeowners to gradually move items into storage over a period of weeks, move house with the few belongings left (the heavy stuff for the removals guys!) and then slowly make a start bringing things into the new home from the self storage facility without the rush and stress of getting everything – from the cutlery to the couch – moved in a single day. This is achieved by moving room sizes mid-stay, true flexibility!

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!

Ed Green-Moore

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.
