Why Self Storage Can Help Your New Year Resolutions


The season of excess is now over, and many of us have started to work towards fulfilling our New Year’s resolutions for 2014. As surprising as it may be, using a self storage facility can actually help you to achieve a number of different resolutions, and here are our top five.


Moving house is a stressful process, and one that is very dependent on timings! You may wish to do a little bit of work on your home before you put it on the market, or may want it to look less cluttered when prospective buyers visit. Self storage units are great for making your home look more appealing to potential buyers by removing clutter – and can also help when you actually move. You may need to move out of your old property before you can move into the new place, and self storage units are a great way of keeping your belongings safe during this period.


Most of us end up hanging onto things we don’t really want or need, and January is the perfect month in which to have a big spring clean and get rid of the clutter in your home. You may decide instantly that there are certain things that you want to bin, sell or give to charity, but there may be other items that you’re not sure whether or not you want to keep. To make the decision easier, consider moving these items to a self storage unit for a period of time: that way, you can live without them for a while and decide whether or not to keep them.


One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, getting fit can involve anything from healthy eating to running to joining a gym. If you’d rather work out at home than in public, then take advantage of the January sales to buy yourself some home gym equipment. If you’re lacking in space, the solution is simple: use a self storage facility to store items that you don’t regularly use, and convert a room or an area in your home to a home gym.


Whether your home just needs a lick of paint or a complete overhaul, it’s pretty hard to undertake any refurbishments while your home is full of your belongings. A self storage unit gives you somewhere safe and convenient to store your belongings until the project is complete, avoiding the risk of damage and giving you more space in which to work.


If you’ve always wanted to pack everything in and go travelling for a period of time, then self storage can help here too. While you’re away, consider using a self storage facility to store some or all of your possessions, and either leave your home empty or rent it out for a bit of extra income to maintain your mortgage payments or to give you extra spending money on your travels. The world really is your oyster…


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.
