Self-storage has really come into its own as of late here in the UK, but there are still plenty of folk that see the idea as rather far-fetched and alien. Like it or not however, we live in a country where to say space is at a premium would be an understatement, which is precisely why the opportunity to invest in a little extra for a superbly affordable price is proving irresistible for so many.
So, for those still needing a gentle poke in the right direction, here’s a quick look at the top ten reasons for considering a self-storage unit:
1 – Clearing Clutter
Take a minute or two to look around you…and now imagine your home if you got rid of literally every last bit of unnecessary clutter. Chances are you’d end up with more free space than you’d know what to do with!
2 – Affordable Office Space
When it’s far from a realistic prospect to build an office extension of move to larger premises, the next best thing could be an ultra-affordable self-storage locker. Again, clear out non-essentials and a world of space opens up.
3 – Sublime Security
The best storage lockers on the market these days are not only covered by 24-hour CCTV security and an on-site guard to watch over things, but are also comprehensively insured against all eventualities. For important items and valuables, why take the risk anywhere else?
4 – Cheaper Than a Home Extension
Where a home extension is a far-flung dream that’s just never going to materialise, why not consider a self-storage unit and at least make best use of the space you have available?
5 – Relocation Relief
When moving home or indeed to a new office, it’s so much easier to have something of a ‘buffer’ in place to help make the transition as fast and smooth as possible.
6 – Accessibility
Something else that’s great about self-storage lockers these days is the way in which it’s generally possible to access your property with little to no notice at all hours of the day and night. By contrast, the office block you work in may be wholly shut-off and locked-down outside business hours.
7 – Flexibility
Unsure if you’ll still need a locker next month? No problem at all – any decent self-storage unite provider on the market will offer huge flexibility with no need for long-term contracts.
8 – Home Business Helpers
It’s almost impossible to run a successful home business without eventually running out of space – unless of course you arm yourself with a self-storage locker to be used to house all non-essentials.
9 – Emergency Backups
For things like important digital data, backup copies of important documents and really anything else of genuinely critical importance, self-storage units make excellent off-site emergency backup locations.
10 – Downsizing
Last but not least, no longer does the prospect of downsizing your home have to mean selling, giving away or disposing of about 80% of your most prized possessions. Instead, grab a cheap storage unit and keep hold of what really matters to you!
