People today are finding it hard to manage the space they rent, own or lease and are turning to self storage solutions to de-cluttered personal and business lives. Whether you’re looking to store just a few items, archive your business paperwork or put most of your possessions in a safe place for a few weeks, months or years this could be a cost-effective and flexible storage solutions for you.
Self storage offers both personal and business users a storage solutions that they can basically control themselves. As with more traditional storage methods, self-storage allows you to rent storage space where you can keep goods and belongings in specialist facilities. In the past, we have had to rely upon removal companies and large storage organizations to store on our behalf and have had to play by their rules with limited access, no flexibility, long-term contracts and high charges. With the advent of self-storage, we’ve been given a lot more choice. It’s ‘Do It Yourself’ storage.
The self-storage space you rent will be self-contained and fully enclosed and can vary in size according to your specific needs – you could be looking at as small a space as a closet through to a unit big enough to store your boat, the entire contents of your house or extensive business archives.
This is an incredibly flexible storage alternative. You can choose to store more or less anything you like in the space size that you choose for as long or as short a time as necessary. Unlike traditional storage methods, self-storage allows you to access your storage space free of charge at any time (subject to facility opening times) which not only means that you can easily access what you have stored but that you can take parts of it out of storage and replace it with other items with no hassle, no waiting and no additional cost. In many cases you can simply drive up to your self-storage unit and park outside. You can even quickly increase or decrease the size of storage space you use according to changing needs. And, unlike traditional storage methods, you’ll know that your self-storage unit will stay where it is and your stuff won’t be moved around by the storage provider without your permission.
Self storage is also a secure solution to storage needs. In most cases, the storage unit you hire can only be accessed by yourself – you’ll be the only authorized key holder, although you can generally nominate further key holders if you wish. In most cases, you’ll be expected to provide your own lock for your space – giving you an extra guarantee of security. In addition, reputable self-storage operations will have a range of their own security measures in place – these can include CCTV, guards and alarm systems.
As the self-storage industry has evolved so has the range of storage solutions services on offer. Larger self-storage facilities have started to offer business services such as office space, administrative services, meeting areas and toilet/shower rooms.
