    Container storage in Plymouth

    Before comparing quotes in Plymouth, you'll need to choose between container storage and self-storage. Whilst self-storage units are located within secure buildings, container storage means renting large metal containers that are in remote locations outdoors. This can make them slightly more susceptible to extreme weather conditions, meaning they're less ideal for fragile items.

    Container storage is completely secure as the units can only be accessed by staff members and verified clients. The facilities will all have active CCTV surveilling the premises as well as modern fire and theft alarms. If you want to visit your container, you may be expected to book an appointment first. However, some types of container storage are actually portable with a wide range of sizes.

    The cost of container storage will vary depending on your location and the size of the container. However, the average cost in the UK is around £2 a day plus VAT.

    Moving house storage in Plymouth

    Whilst it can be a stressful and time-consuming event, container and self-storage can help make the moving house process more efficient and reduce the pressure of any time restraints.

    Many people are looking to downsize recently, with terraced houses being the most popular properties amongst Plymouth buyers.

    By using a reliable storage provider, you have peace of mind knowing that your items are completely secure whilst you focus on your house move. Whether you require short or long-term solutions, comparing storage quotes can help you save both time and money by reducing the volume of items that need to be moved.
