Storage costs can vary depending on where you are, whether you require a specialised unit, how long you rent the unit for and how many square feet you require. According to SSA’s UK Industry Report, the average cost of a self-storage unit in London is £33.06 per sq ft, making it the most expensive area in the UK. The UK’s average is £23.94 per sq ft, meaning London is almost £10 more per square foot. In South London, the average storage unit size is 75 - 100 sq ft.
If you're looking to rent container storage, this can cost as little as £2 plus VAT a day. According to Pick and Move, the average cost of a 70 sq ft container in London is £36.69 per week. The same-sized unit in a self-storage compound could cost up to £89.53, making it the more expensive option.
Costs across the board are higher in London but with the demand for storage units in this part of the country, the cost of storage is at a premium. Prices rise the closer to central you are, so those in the outer areas of South London may find prices are slightly lower than in the heart of the city.

Container storage means you'll be renting large, metal containers that can store big, heavy items such as vehicles and machinery. Self-storage units are located indoors whilst container storage is outdoors in warehouses or secure compounds. Our research shows that container storage across the UK is around 50% cheaper than self-storage.
Depending on your chosen provider, you'll either be able to visit the container as often as you'd like or you may have to book appointments in advance. This can sometimes convince users that container storage is less flexible. This type of storage is most beneficial and cost-effective for people storing large items over long periods of time.
Whilst outdoors, container storage is very secure as the facilities can only be accessed by staff members and verified clients. There will also be CTTV monitoring the area and modern fire/theft alarms.
At Compare My Move, we understand the challenges that moving house can present, which is why we set out to make the processes easier. Moving house is not always as simple as A to B, and you may find yourself needing somewhere to store your belongings in the interim.
Furthermore, with space in South London costing a premium and flats and homes typically smaller than in other parts of the country, additional storage space can be essential. Rather than getting rid of cherished items, storage allows you to store them safely and securely until you need to access them.
Self-storage units come in a variety of sizes with highly flexible contracts that can be perfect for last-minute house moves. A 20ft container, however, is the ideal size for fitting the contents of a 3-bedroom house, potentially making container storage the better option for movers with a lot of goods.
South London is home to numerous businesses, both creative and financial. Storage can be essential for those with a business, especially in London where space can be scarce. Be it for overflow, storing office supplies and equipment or as overflow storage, a self-storage unit can save both time and money for your business.
Many self-storage units can be accessed 24/7, making it convenient for collecting items and storing additional supplies whenever you need to. This flexible approach for storage can be a huge asset to your business, in addition to keeping your items safe and secure.
If your business needs to store larger items, however, such as machinery or vehicles, then container storage will be the better option. It's a more cost-effective and affordable solution for those looking to store a lot of items for long periods of time.

South London has a student population of more than 400,000 across numerous educational institutions. Whether you're moving across London for University, across the country or even internationally, container and self-storage can be essential for many students. This is especially the case for those in dorm rooms where space is limited.
Container and self-storage offer flexible solutions for students who need to store items either during term time, during holidays and between accommodation or those studying abroad. Many storage companies will offer deals and special rates for students so it is worth discussing your options directly with storage providers to get the best option for you.
