How to Choose the Right Self Storage Solution

Whether you’re downsizing, moving house or just need some extra storage, then a storage container or storage room may be the perfect solution for you. When it comes to choosing a storage option there are a few things to consider to ensure you’re getting the best option for you. In this guide, we will explore all the different things you should consider when choosing your storage solution. 

Size: How much space do you need?

Firstly and probably the most important is how much space you need. Most self storage companies have different options and sizes of storage containers and rooms. Once you determine how much space you need you can begin looking at options. At Container Self Store, we can help you find the right storage option for you – finding you the perfect size for the best price.

Location: How often will you need to access the storage unit?

Location is another important thing to consider when choosing a storage solution. We recommend choosing a location geographically close to your business or home – depending on your needs. If you’re not planning on accessing your storage unit or room very often then you can be more flexible with the location you choose. At Container Self Store, we have locations in both Nottingham and Northampton

Facilities and Amenities 

Storage units and rooms can be the perfect option to run your business out of, they offer a cheaper solution to renting an office space or warehouse. If you plan on spending long hours at the self storage facility then take a look at the other facilities and amenities they have available. At Container Self Store, our office spaces have electricity, heating, wifi and we also offer communal office spaces, meeting rooms and facilities such toilets and refreshments during business opening hours. 

Flexible Storage Durations: How long are you looking to store your items?

Sometimes you’re just looking at some short-term storage solutions or maybe you’re looking for a longer duration. We understand that sometimes your needs change and the duration of your storage may also change – so when looking at self storage options take a look at their policies and if they offer flexible storage durations. At Container Self Store, we can help you find the perfect solution for you – whatever size you need, whatever duration you need – we’re here to help.

Before committing to a self storage solution, we recommend checking the review. Reviews are a great way to know what the business is truly like and find out what other customers’ experiences have been.
