Why you should store your valuables while you’re abroad

Are you planning on leaving the country for an extended period of time? Perhaps you’re planning on taking a long holiday, or perhaps you need to travel for work. Regardless of your reasons for leaving the UK, you may be wondering whether you should leave your valuables at home or lock them in a self storage unit while you’re away. Here at Storage World, we understand that different people need to use self storage for different reasons. Some people store their possessions in our units while they downsize to a new home, whereas others use our facilities to store stock from their businesses. But is a self storage unit really the right place to store your valuables while you’re out of the country? For many people, the answer is yes.

The first issue you need to consider is security. If your house will be completely unattended while you are away, it may not be the safest or most secure place to leave your most valuable possessions. A deserted house can become a target for burglars if it is left unattended for a long enough period of time. In contrast, self storage units are highly secure. Storing your items in one of these units is a great way to protect them from sticky fingers while you’re not there to keep an eye on them.

The other issue that you need to take into account is the environment inside your home. If a house is left unused for a long period of time, the interior environment can become too dry, too moist, too hot or too cold. After all, if nobody’s around to open the windows or turn the heating system on and off, the internal climate becomes completely unregulated. This can damage certain items (particularly electronic goods). By storing these items in a self storage unit, you can prevent degradation and ensure that they are in good condition when you return to the UK.

Of course, if there will be other people in your home while you’re away, you don’t need to worry about security or your home’s interior climate. However, if you intend to leave your home unattended while you’re out of the country, storing your items in self storage is the most sensible course of action.

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.
