Changes & the Need for Self Storage Units
The recent increase in home building within the UK, has meant a greater demand for self storage due to a number of factors. These include the fact that new homes are now designed to be more compact where possible, meaning less storage space. Built in cupboards and alcoves which were ideal for keeping belongings neat and tidy, are seen less frequently in new builds nowadays. Also houses often do not have a garage these days, and let’s face it, the garage is used to store possessions as well as vehicles a lot of the time. People may not have a garden where a shed could be placed so that option is out, and in any case, dampness and other atmospheric conditions can damage property kept outside.
Despite the noticeable lack of space, people still need somewhere secure, dry, clean and affordable to store things such as furniture, bikes, a boat, canoe or car. Security is a major issue, especially where valuable items are concerned. Self storage units and containers are ideal here, with superior locking systems, and excellent insurance arrangements.
Storage of Household Contents, Tools, Downsizing & Memorabilia Collections
5 reasons to love self storage units include:
1. Needing somewhere to store items like furniture, sofas, electrical appliances and other belongings when in the process of moving, especially where there is a property chain. Downsizing can also leave people with an urgent need for temporary storage space.
2. Builders, painters and decorators are usually faced with either carting their expensive tools and equipment back and forth from their van to their home, or risk losing the lot during a burglary. A small storage container can bring piece of mind, knowing their things are under lock and key.
3. Students often decide to take a break from studying and travel abroad for a year, before getting tied down to a job. If there is no room at Mum and Dad’s, and they aren’t allowed, or can’t afford to keep their student flat going, a storage unit for belongings is perfect.
4. Maybe your family is expanding in the form of the exciting imminent arrival of a baby, and now that spare room that has been home to ‘things’ you want to keep must be cleared.
5. Collections of valuable memorabilia require extra room, they also normally have to be kept in pristine condition, ie dust and damp free.
