Research taken from the SSA’s UK Industry Report shows that the average cost of a self-storage unit in London, where Richmond is based, is £33.06 per sq ft. This was revealed as the most expensive region of the UK for self-storage. This isn’t surprising as many urban and populous areas experience an increase in demand for storage due to the lack of space, thus increasing the prices.
Flats are one of the most popular property types in Richmond, selling for an average price of £542,687. The next size up would be terraced houses, which average £1,021,379. Looking at these house prices, it is much cheaper to use self-storage units rather than upsize.
According to Pick and Move, the average cost of a 70 sq ft container in England's Capital is £36.69 per week. This is a large container, providing you with more space than most self-storage units. The same-sized unit in self-storage will cost up to £89.53. To ensure you find the best possible prices, don’t forget to compare storage quotes with Compare My Move.

Container storage consists of large, metal containers making it the ideal service for large, heavy items such as vehicles and machinery. Whilst self-storage units are indoors, the containers used are often outdoors in warehouses or secure compounds. Despite providing more space, container storage is typically 64% cheaper than self-storage across London.
Depending on your chosen storage provider, you may have to book appointments to visit your container in advance. However, some types are actually portable, meaning they can be delivered straight to your door. Container storage is ideal for people looking to store large, heavy items or furniture for long periods of time. There are even bulk deals available, should you be renting some of the bigger containers.
The containers you rent can only be accessed by staff members and verified clients, with active CTTV monitoring the facility. The only other issue to consider is that they may not be as weatherproof due to their location. This can make them less than ideal for those storing fragile goods.
With approximately 29% of British storage users being involved in the moving house process, moving house is the most common reason people are searching for storage solutions.

Whether you need somewhere to keep your items whilst decluttering or you’re downsizing to a smaller property, container and self-storage can be the ideal solution. If you're storing larger items, know that a 20ft container is the ideal size for housing the contents of a 3-bedroom house.
Rest assured, all of our storage partners are verified by us and reviewed by you, so you know they’re trustworthy companies that can protect your belongings. There are several flexible options to choose from, from storing single items to entire households. Whatever the requirements, our partners can help.
