    Container storage in West London

    Self-storage units come in a range of sizes and are located inside buildings owned by the storage company. Container storage has large metal containers you can rent that are located outdoors in remote compounds and warehouses. Whilst this can make them more susceptible to extreme weather, the containers are ideal for moving large or heavy items. These are the two storage types you can choose from when comparing quotes with Compare My Move.

    Container storage is very secure as the units can only be accessed by verified staff members and clients. Despite being stored outside, the containers are very sturdy, clean and constantly monitored. All of our storage partners use active CCTV as well as state-of-the-art fire/theft alarms and security systems.

    The cost of container storage will mostly depend on the size of the container and its location. Whilst cheaper than self-storage, it can be seen as less flexible as you may need to book appointments in advance when visiting the facility.
