Running out of space at home

People are reluctant to cast aside belongings they no longer use, especially if they are still in good condition. They want to hang onto things ‘just in case’ or often because they’re planning on passing them on at some point in time. It could be an old Chesterfield, a bike, a bed, Hi-fi equipment or a bookcase. Getting on the housing ladder is very expensive and many are storing furniture etc, in preparation for when their children make that jump and will need all the help they can get.

Moving home

Increasingly people are having to move out of their old home before moving into their new one to avoid losing a sale. If that’s the case and you have nowhere to store your belongings, a household self storage unit is the ideal answer. Also, if you are downsizing, but don’t want to throw away or sell those bits and pieces quite yet, a self storage unit will help while you make your mind up about what stays and what goes.

Gap Years

Many students choose to spend a year travelling before they enter the big, wide world of work! However, many find that they have nowhere to store their belongings between the end of university and the time that renting a house comes around on their return. In all likelihood, there’s no room back at mum and dad’s for all the extra things they’ve acquired during their 3 or 4 years at Uni. A small self storage unit is ideal for this.
