    What is the best day of the week for storage in South London?

    The most popular day of the week to rent a storage unit, according to our data, is on a Saturday. The first day of the weekend saw over 25% of rentals for those utilising self-storage in South London.

    Saturday is likely a popular day as for many people who work the traditional 9-5 in the week, renting a unit on a Saturday means not having to take leave. It also means that if it takes more than a day to move your belongings into and arrange your unit, you have Sunday to finish the job.

    Sunday itself was the least popular day, with just 8% of rentals taking place. This could be due to the fact that if it takes longer than a day to move your belongings or make arrangements, you could be looking at disrupting the week ahead. Furthermore, many shops and services are closed on a Sunday, so if you need supplies, you may need to wait until the following day.
