Self storage facilities are spaces that can be rented out for personal use. Think of them as your remote storage room to store your items when you are not using them. You can opt to rent a unit for as short or as long as you want. Most companies allow even just one week of stay.
Storage facilities can be used both for personal and business use. Everyone needs extra space, especially with rent prices becoming steep.
Self-storage facilities help households in many ways. Below are some common examples:
=> Offset the stress of moving
=> Provide more space at home
=> Organise a home renovation
=> Store a loved one’s belongings
=> Empty a dorm in the summer
Businesses get a secure off-site storage space for their files, inventory, and equipment. Some common businesses that find value in storage units include:
=> Carpenters and contractors
=> Antique and book dealers
=> Retail shop owners
=> Sales and services professionals
The cost of storage depends on several factors such as location, duration of stay, size of storage unit, amenities included, and type of unit.

There is usually no limit as to how many times you can go in and out of your storage unit in one day. There are even storage companies that offer 24/7 access.

While you can transport your items with your own personal car, we recommend hiring a Man with Van service for the safety of your items and, of course, your convenience. Items can easily get damaged in transit when you do it yourself. At the same time, you have to make multiple trips just to transport all of your items.
