Whether moving house, travelling abroad, or heading to university, there are many reasons as to why people seek to store their belongings elsewhere. Thankfully, high-quality storage options exist, providing a safe, stress-free way to temporarily keep your possessions.
We outline the top five benefits of using a professional self storage unit in London.
One of the main reasons why people use self storage is for peace of mind. High-quality self storage facilities will be fitted with state-of-the-art security systems, including alarms and 24/7 CCTV, ensuring that valuable possessions are constantly kept safe and protected. Professional storage units are also clean and dry so that your belongings are not damaged in any way during their stay within the facility.
Most good companies will also offer insurance options for an added layer of protection so that in the very unlikely event of something happening, you will be covered. This is particularly useful if you plan on keeping any precious or expensive items within the unit.
Self storage is ideal for people who are unsure of their future plans, as it does not require any long-term commitment. It is simply up to you how long you decide to use the service for and items can be collected whenever you wish, providing a flexible solution to storing non-essential items.
One of the top benefits of hiring a storage facility is that it is hassle-free, with many providers now offering an end-to-end service so that you do not have to lift a finger. For instance, at Matthew James Removals & Storage we do not expect our clients to move heavy boxes back and forth to get to their London self storage unit – instead, we bring the container out to their car or van and will help them load items, making things as hassle-free as possible.
Self storage facilities can be accessed by the client at any time, providing a convenient way to reach their belongings if and when they are needed. Moreover, items of all sizes and shapes can be kept, including large furniture, ski equipment and even pianos! The possibilities are endless, meaning you don’t have to get rid of any items you aren’t currently using or do not have space for at that moment in time.
We offer very competitive prices, meaning temporary storage options may be the most affordable choice for you when moving house, relocating, going to uni or travelling abroad. We are also able to offer added bonuses which, when used together, can save you money, such as professional packing services and packing materials.
It is important to carry out thorough research and find a good quote from a trusted removals and storage expert, rather than just going for the cheapest option. Often, the low-cost storage providers are too good to be true and can end up costing you more in the long run where goods are not kept safe or are damaged.
