Reasons to use self-storage

Whether using self-storage in Tamworth or storage in Hinckley, customers can be confident that their property will be perfectly safe and secure. Do-it-yourself-storage facilities are covered by the Membership Standard introduced by the SSA UK, which means that safety and security of stored goods is paramount. It is therefore important, when choosing a self-storage facility, that the company displays the organisation’s logo. It means that the operator of the self-storage facility has to work to a code of conduct and behave in a responsible manner. Check for the logo and scrutinise the operator’s terms and conditions before signing any agreement. 

Both individuals and companies use self-storage as a means of storing goods for many reasons. Individuals find self-storage particularly useful when moving house and require somewhere short-term to store their furniture. Perhaps a property is being renovated and self-storage offers a secure option to store valuable belongings. Alternatively, having to work abroad for a period of time might mean that certain items have to be temporarily stored somewhere that is safe and secure.

Extra room self storage is a welcome alternative to having fishing rods, skis or snowboards taking over the house; all sports equipment can be stored in the unit, leaving the home clear and uncluttered. It might be that the house is bulging at the seams, in which case renting a self-storage unit is a great way to de-clutter and regain some living space.

Companies often find self-storage facilities to be extremely useful for storing archived files – and documents that may have to keep for several years – and for auditing and HMRC purposes. Rather than tying up valuable office space, a better alternative is to keep them in a self-storage unit.

If a business has too much stock or stock that is only seasonal, a self-storage unit is an excellent place to temporarily store the items, safe in the knowledge that they will remain unharmed. Excess office furniture or conference equipment can also be safely stored.
