    Container storage in Newcastle

    Self-storage units come in varying sizes and are often located in secure buildings owned by the company. Container storage means you'll be renting large metal containers in remote locations or warehouses. They are typically found outdoors, sometimes making them more susceptible to extreme weather conditions. If you have fragile or delicate items, self-storage could be ideal and better suited to your needs.

    Despite being outdoors, container storage is still very secure as the units can only be accessed by staff members and verified clients. Each facility will also have active CCTV monitoring the premise, as well as state-of-the-art theft and fire alarms to protect the containers.

    The cost of your storage container will vary depending on your location and the exact size of the container being used. Depending on the company you choose, there may also be deals available when purchasing larger units for long periods of time.

    Moving house storage in Newcastle

    One of the most common reasons people rent storage units is during the moving house process. Self-storage can be a huge asset to those who are moving house, especially if your current home sells before you find, buy or move into your new house. Using self-storage can help relieve stress during the buying and moving process, giving you and your family somewhere to store your items safely.

    If you need to move heavy or large furniture, then container storage will be the best solution. A 20ft container can store the contents of a 3-bedroom house, making it the most commonly used size.

    Downsizing before a move is another reason people use storage, which allows you to store your belongings outside your home whilst you make arrangements to either keep or donate the items. A key benefit of downsizing is that you can save money on your removal costs as you will have fewer items to move. If you are moving house soon, don’t forget to compare both storage and removal quotes with Compare My Move.

    Student storage in Newcastle

    Newcastle has a number of educational institutions and courses, including the acclaimed University of Newcastle.

    As many, if not most, student halls and flatshares are limited in size, container and self-storage can offer essential additional space for students. This can be especially useful for international students who travel during their studies.

    Additionally, students with hobbies or members of societies and sports teams which require equipment can use storage to keep the items dry and secure when not in use.

    When discussing your requirements with storage providers, don’t forget to ask if they offer student discounts.
