    How much does self-storage cost in Glasgow?

    We’ve researched the costs of self-storage across the UK. According to Octagon Capital, the average annual cost for a 50 sq. ft. unit is £700, almost 20% cheaper than the UK’s national average at £868. City centres usually are more expensive for everything, but it’s good to know that Glasgow remains affordable for storage costs, more than half the price of London.

    The cost of your storage unit will depend on the size of the unit and how long you require the unit for. Most storage companies offer cheaper prices per sq.ft as the unit sizes get bigger, so it’s worth working out how much storage space you’ll need.

    It’s important to compare quotes for your storage in advance as it really helps to get a range of prices from local providers. You’ll be able to find the best deal for your Glasgow storage and have peace of mind knowing you’re saving time, money and stress.

    What is the best time of year for storage in Glasgow?

    Our data shows that the best time of year to use storage in Glasgow is January and September, with 15.38% of people choosing each month. These months seem to be popular for storage across the UK. January brings a fresh start and many people want to declutter their home after the Christmas period, with some even using storage for Christmas decorations if they don’t have the space at home.

    Like January, September is also the start of a new term for universities, with many students moving back into their accommodation or moving to a new flat. Using self-storage during university is an affordable and convenient way to ensure your personal belongings such as inherited furniture or books are well looked after. September also marks the end of summer, so many people might store their garden equipment or summer clothes if their homes lack space.

    April saw the fewest people using self-storage in Glasgow, with just 3.85% of users choosing this month. Many families and businesses are occupied with Easter celebrations in April, so there’s no surprise that people aren’t using storage in the area at this time of year.

    What is the best day of the week for storage in Glasgow?

    Friday is the best day of the week for people in Glasgow to use self-storage, seeing 23.72% of people picking this day. A further 18.59% of storage users chose to put items into storage on a Saturday, making the weekend the most popular time in the area. The most popular time for a house move in the UK is a Friday, with Saturday a close second, so this correlates with Glasgow’s storage use. The weekend offers many workers additional time off to settle into their new home and organise their storage.

    Sunday saw the least amount of people using storage with 6.41%, despite most storage companies being open. Sunday also happens to be the least favourite day in the UK for a house move, so the lack of storage use on this day makes sense. Whether you need storage for your move or business, we can connect you with local and trusted storage companies in Glasgow so you can compare and save on costs.

    Student storage in Glasgow

    Glasgow is a major centre of higher and academic research, with top universities in the city such as the University of Strathclyde, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow School of Art and Glasgow Caledonian University, and the City of Glasgow College, the largest college in Britain.

    Student accommodation is notoriously small, with many only having space for a single bed and a desk. Many students will go on to find their own flats or shared homes after using university accommodation in their first year, so can often be in-betweeen accommodation. Using self-storage can put your mind at ease if you’re popping home during holidays. Our storage companies have CCTV monitoring and their units are safe and secure. Even better, storage is so flexible you can store as little as single items if needed.
