Business Lock-Up

10 Times self storage could be just what you need

dachshund in a box ready Whether you’re running a business, making some changes or just need more space, self storage could be just what you’re looking for.

Here are 10 times self storage could help you.

1. When moving.

If you’re moving to a new business premises, self-storage provides an interim storage space until your new premises is completely fitted out. Decluttering your home will make it look more appealing to buyers — on the photographs and during viewings. Self-storage gives you a temporary space to store your clutter while your home is on the market. If you’ve sold your home but haven’t found a new one yet, you can move some of your belongings into self-storage and rent a smaller, cheaper or more convenient property until you find somewhere permanent.

2. For bulk-buys.

If you want to take full advantage of a great offer or a cheaper unit price, you’ll want to bulk-buy. The downside of buying in bulk is finding space to store the items once you’ve bought them. This is where self-storage comes in.

3. During renovations.

Renovating a property or premises can be tricky. Moving items out of the area you’re renovating can instantly fill up another room and make it unusable — or even dangerous. Moving the items to a self-storage unit will keep them safe, secure and clean while your renovations take place. And you’ll still be able to use the rest of your space.

4. For seasonal items.

We all have items we only use at certain times of the year. Things like seasonal stock, seasonal clothes, Christmas decorations and garden furniture. They’re not things you want to sell or get rid of, but while you’re not using them they’re just taking up valuable space. Moving these items to a self-storage unit will free up space in your home or business premises until you need them again.

5. For work equipment/materials.

If you’re a van driver, you may have heard of the tool theft ‘epidemic’ that has been sweeping the UK. Vans can be easy to break into and — even your equipment is insured — the loss and consequent downtime can be devastating to your business. Transferring your equipment to a secure self-storage facility overnight will keep it safe, so you’re always ready for work.

6. For storing stock.

If you run a stock-based business, you need a secure space to store your goods or materials. This can be difficult if you work from home or only have a small business premises. It can also be inconvenient if your base is miles away from where the stock is being used. Self storage can offer you secure storage for your stock that will keep it closer to where it’s needed and free up valuable space in your home or office.

7. For storing larger items.

Some items are just large, cumbersome and inconvenient to have around. If you still want to keep them, but don’t have the space, self storage could be just what you need.

8. During a house clearance.

Clearing the house of a recently deceased relative may need to be done straight away. But it can be a painful process and something you’re not emotionally prepared for. Moving your relative’s possessions into self storage for a while will give you the time you need to deal with them as and when you’re ready.

9. During a temporary relocation.

If you’re working or holidaying away for an extended time, you may have decided to rent out your home. If so, you’ll need to move your possessions out before your renters can move in. Self storage will give you a safe, secure place to store your things while you’re away.

10. During changes in your home.

Maybe you’re expecting a new baby, putting up a friend who’s fallen on hard times or caring for a relative who’s just come out of hospital. You’ll need to make some changes, but only for a while. Moving some of your furniture into self storage can help you manage these changes for as long as you need to.
