The answer to that question is that you can use self storage for literally anything so long as it doesn’t decompose and it is legal. The best storage facilities have storage containers in different sizes so that clients can only rent the space that they need. If, for instance, you want to store documents from a relatively new business you don’t need a very big storage container. If, however, your business has been operational for years you will need a bigger container that can hold all that you have accumulated over the years.
Many people choose personal storage containers to store items that they don’t want to store at home but also don’t want to throw away. These containers can be used to store things such as furniture, electronics, old garments and so on. If you are renting a container for these reasons make sure that it is weatherproof so that your items remain in good condition.
Another good use of personal storage containers is to store inventory for small business. These businesses do not have the room it takes to store large amounts of inventory. They obviously cannot store it at home either – not only does it clutter the place, it makes it hard to get around. You can solve this problem by renting a storage container.
Many people avoid personal storage containers because they feel that it would cost more than they can afford. If you shop carefully there are storage facilities that are affordable. Boylin’s Self Store, for example, which has locations in Barnsley, Bedford, Leeds, Rotherham, Sheffield, Swinton-Mexborough and Wakefield has containers that are affordable. To rent 150 square feet for a week will only cost you £16.99. For the first month you pay half the cost.
Cost is not the only thing you should be looking for. You need to find storage facilities that are secure – the last thing you want is someone breaking in and stealing your items. You should make sure that you rent from a facility that has access fobs or keys on each container as well as 24 hour CCTV surveillance. The containers should also be weatherproof.
We mentioned that Boylin’s Self Store is affordable but that is not all. They also meet the requirements discussed here. In addition to security and weatherproof containers they also have all of them on ground level for easy access. You can find out more on http://www.boylinsselfstore.co.uk/selfStorage/
