Look out for the following when searching for a reliable and trusted storage company:
Insurance - Only use a storage facility that has Public Liability insurance as you know your items are protected if the worst were to happen.
Security - You should only choose a storage company that provides all the essential security measures. This includes 24/7 CCTV and alarm systems.
Accessibility - Many storage facilities are open 7 days a week and even on Bank Holidays. It's important to check when you can access your chosen storage provider's units and if they are closed on any day.
Storage requirements - You may need multiple units next to each other for vehicle storage or special temperature-controlled units for furniture. You should also ask if you'll have easy loading facilities.
Container storage is often more affordable than self-storage as you usually need to give notice when you want to access your items. This makes container storage ideal if you’re on a budget and don’t need to visit your unit often.
As shipping containers typically come in one large size, many people use them to store cars, garden equipment/furniture and machinery. Your items in container storage could be affected by extreme weather conditions, so this type of storage is not suitable for fragile or valuable items.
Self-storage is also ideal for personal or business storage as the units are inside a safe and secure building. This type of storage is more flexible, with size options ranging from single lockers to 500 sq. ft plus. You’ll also typically have 24/7 access to your unit.
