    Container storage in Bristol

    Before comparing quotes, you should decide whether you need self-storage or container storage. Self-storage units come in various sizes and are located within secure buildings. Container storage, however, consists of large metal containers that are outdoors in warehouses or remote locations. These are mostly used when moving big or heavy items such as vehicles or large furniture.

    Despite being outdoors, container storage is completely safe as the units are only accessed by staff members and clients. They can be affected by extreme weather conditions but there is always active CCTV monitoring the area. Some types of container storage are actually portable, such as pod storage, meaning your unit could be delivered straight to your door. This isn't an option with most self-storage.

    The cost of container storage will vary depending on your location and, most importantly, the size of the container. If you want to visit your unit, you may be expected to book an appointment rather than just turn up.

    Moving house storage in Bristol

    Moving house can be chaotic as you have to organise your possessions and determine exactly what you’re transporting and when. Renting additional space to safely store your items can be an ideal solution, ensuring a more efficient and stress-free moving process. It will also keep your removal costs down as you use less packing materials.

    Using storage solutions can be the perfect solution to securing additional space without having to throw out more of your belongings or rush the packing process before completion. Self-storage is most common for movers as there is a range of sizes to choose from. Container storage can often be too big unless you're moving vehicles or very large furniture.

    It’s important to shop around no matter what service providers you're searching for. Compare storage quotes with Compare My Move to ensure you’re connected with the best and most trusted companies in your local area.
