Storage space comes at a premium in houses and offices in London, and sometimes extra space has to be sacrificed in favour of a lower purchase price or rent. That’s perhaps why so many people are turning to self storage units in London: the weekly cost of a self storage unit is low in comparison to the cost of extra rent or mortgage payments on a larger property.
Ideas for using self storage in London
Self storage units can be used for all sorts of things and can be a real space-saver for your home or business.
1. Self storage in London for householders
If you’re a householder, you might use your self storage unit for:
Unseasonal clothing (to free up some wardrobe space)
Gardening tools and equipment
Extra furniture for occasional use (e.g. extra chairs used for parties)
Hobby or craft supplies
You could also use your self storage unit to store everything during a house move or renovations, and many people use their storage units during major life events such as downsizing or moving in with a new partner.
2. Self storage in London for businesses
If you run a business, you might rent a self storage unit rather than commit to a long commercial lease. Our self storage facilities in London don’t attract business rates, and the amount of space you can rent is adjustable, so we’re often used as an affordable, flexible alternative to traditional warehousing. You can store business stock, tools, equipment and archives in our dedicated business units.
3. Self storage in London for students
If you’re a student, you could use your self storage unit to keep all your belongings safe during the holidays. Burglaries of student accommodation are, sadly, more common during the holidays because those properties are often vacant, but it can be a nuisance to have to take everything home with you for a few weeks. Our self storage faciliites in London are covered by CCTV and intruder alarms and are easy to reach by road or public transport.
