How does self-storage work?

The storage unit you require will depend on what you need it for. If you're moving house, a temporary indoor unit would be ideal. A 100 sq.ft unit should fit the contents of a 2-bedroom house.

If your business needs somewhere to store extra documents or equipment, you may need a climate-controlled unit to avoid damage. Or you may be a student leaving your university accommodation over the holidays - you'll have peace of mind knowing your belongings are safe and secure in storage.

Once you've decided what type of storage you need, you'll have to think about getting your belongings to your unit. We work with a network of removal companies across the UK who can help safely transport your items.

Using storage when moving house

Using self-storage during a house move can help you save time, money and stress during the process. By keeping some items in storage during the viewing process, you can declutter your home to appeal to buyers and save money on your removal costs at the same time.

Almost 30% of self-storage customers in the UK are involved with moving house, with storage providers saying they saw a 49% increase in people using storage for moving during 2021. The most popular reasons for using storage in the last year was being in-between homes, no room for items at home and creating more space.

Many people find themselves in between homes during moving house, making storage an ideal option for you. It’s common to sell your property first, and get temporary rented accommodation whilst you’re in the buying process. Putting your possessions into storage will help speed up the process.
