    Container storage in Coventry

    Before comparing quotes in Coventry, you'll need to choose between self-storage or container storage. Self-storage units come in varying sizes and are located within a secure building owned by the provider. With container storage, you can rent large metal containers that are in remote locations outdoors. This makes it slightly more susceptible to extreme weather conditions.

    Despite its location, container storage is completely secure as the units can only be accessed by staff members and clients. Each facility has active CCTV and is under constant surveillance by the provider overseeing the premises. Some types of container storage such as pod storage are actually portable with a wide range of sizes available.

    The cost of container storage will vary depending on your specific location and the exact size of the container. If you want to visit your unit, you may be expected to book an appointment first, making container storage slightly less flexible.

    Moving house storage in Coventry

    One of the most common reasons storage is utilised is because of the moving house process. Not only can storage decrease the stress of the buying process and the home move itself, but it also gives you and your family somewhere to store your items in the interim. Downsizing is another reason people use storage, which allows you to store your belongings outside your home whilst you make arrangements to either keep, donate or recycle the items.

    Whilst self-storage is most commonly used, a 20ft by 8ft ground container is ideal for storing the contents of a 3-bedroom house. It can hold 380 medium-sized boxes, providing plenty of space. Both self-storage and container storage can be useful when moving house, so it's vital you do the research before choosing a provider.

    If you are moving house soon, don’t forget to compare both storage and removal quotes with Compare My Move, ensuring you get the best deal for your move.

    Business storage in Coventry

    Coventry and Warwickshire boast nearly 12,000 companies in the professional and business service sector. When it comes to your enterprise, storage can be a huge asset, whether you’re a young start-up or an established company. Commercial units can be a safe and cost-effective way of storing a variety of supplies and equipment. Be it additional stock, office furniture or tools and supplies, storage can be a benefit for businesses of any size.

    Self-storage units are ideal for fragile or important items such as office equipment or paperwork. However, container storage offers much more space, capable of housing large furniture, vehicles and machinery.

    Our storage partners throughout Coventry offer flexible and secure storage solutions for your business. Not only will they have a high level of security, but many companies have additional services to assist businesses such as the use of pallet trucks and trolleys for large items.

    Student storage in Coventry

    The city of Coventry is home to Coventry University and the University of Warwick, in addition to nearby Arden University. As a result, there is a large student population in the area. As many, if not most, student halls of residents and flatshares are limited in size, storage can offer additional space for many.

    Additionally, students with hobbies or members of societies which require equipment, for example, kayaks or American Football gear, can use storage to keep the items dry and secure when not in use.

    Self-storage is most commonly used by students as it provides the perfect amount of space required. Whilst this is likely the better option, you can also consider container storage if you're looking to protect larger pieces of furniture for long periods of time.

    When discussing your requirements with storage providers, don’t forget to ask if they offer student discounts.
