    Container storage in Cardiff

    When comparing quotes in Cardiff, you need to decide whether you require self-storage or container storage. Self-storage units are located within buildings and come in various sizes. Container storage, however, consists of large metal containers located outdoors. Container storage is ideal if you're moving big or heavy items such as large furniture or vehicles.

    Container storage is incorrectly viewed as less secure due to its location. However, it is completely safe as the units can only be accessed by staff members and clients. The facilities will also have active CCTV monitoring the area 24/7 for added peace of mind. A 20ft by 8ft ground container is actually ideal for storing the contents of a 3-bedroom house, making them highly versatile. But they are more prone to extreme weather conditions.

    The cost of container storage will vary depending on your location and the size of the container required. It does offer slightly less flexibility than self-storage, however, as you may be expected to book an appointment if you want to visit your specific container. This is to ensure complete protection.
