    Container storage in Hackney

    Container storage consists of renting large, metal containers making it ideal for large, heavy items such as vehicles, machinery and more. Whilst self-storage units are indoors, the containers used in container storage are often outdoors in facilities such as warehouses or secure compounds. Despite providing more space, container storage is around 64% cheaper than self-storage in some areas of London.

    Depending on your chosen storage provider, you can either visit the container whenever you please, or you may have to book appointments in advance. However, some types of containers are portable, meaning they can be delivered straight to your door. Container storage is best suited to people looking to store large, heavy items or furniture for long periods of time.

    A lot of users will be concerned about the security of container storage in Hackney as the containers are outdoors. Whilst there's not always staff present, container storage is very much safe. The containers can only be accessed by staff members and verified clients, with active CTTV constantly monitoring the premises. The only other issue to consider is that they may not be as weatherproof as self-storage units.

    Moving house storage in Hackney

    Many UK movers use storage before, during and after their move. Storage can be ideal if you’re in-between homes during a move or you need to declutter for a house viewing or prior to downsizing. With 29% of people saying they use storage when involved with a house move, it’s clear that storage can be a great help.

    Self-storage units are most commonly used by movers as the varying sizes are perfect for different-sized households. They provide safe, clean and dry units to store your most precious items. However, if you need to store large or heavy furniture, you may want to consider container storage instead as it gives you more space for a cheaper price.

    Rest assured, we work with a range of storage providers across the UK who can tailor your storage unit to your specific needs. Whether you require small or large units for your move, our storage companies can help. We can also connect you with companies that offer climate-controlled units to help with delicate and valuable items.

    Student storage in Hackney

    Hackney is home to the London College of Fashion, Hackney Community College and in close proximity to the City of London College and many others. As East London is home to many students, international and from all over the UK, there’s no surprise that student storage is in demand in London.

Both international and UK students will often return home during holiday periods, so leaving your personal belongings unattended can be daunting. Rest assured, our storage providers will offer safe, clean and dry self-storage units for your belongings.

    Don't forget to compare storage quotes to get the best deal for your storage needs. Whilst students don't typically use container storage, you will also have the option of choosing this service should you have larger items.
