Have you found yourself lacking in space and desperate for a solution? This is a common problem in houses across Britain, especially in family homes, where you have too many possessions that you simply can’t part with.
One easy solution to this is self-storage. It’s a fantastic, affordable way to get extra space in your life. Of course, when choosing a self-storage facility, you will have to weigh up a few different options. Here at AVM Storage & Shipping, we have put together an article on how to choose the perfect self-storage option and things you should be thinking about.
What Kind of Storage Do You Need?
Of course, you need to think about the items you’ll be storing and what kind of storage you’ll need. Otherwise, you could, unfortunately, end up with something that is unsuitable.
Make sure you get an idea of the size of the unit you’re looking for, as you equally don’t want something too big or too small.
The best way to do this is by making a list of all the things you’ll be storing. Using this, many companies will be able to give you a quote and an idea of the realistic size you’ll need.
Short or Long Term Storage?
Another thing to think about is how long you’ll need to rent your storage unit for. If you’re, for example, moving into a new home, then you’ll likely only need short-term storage. However, if you’re looking for a space to store stock, then you’ll likely need long-term storage.
Take time to consider the nature of the items you’ll be storing and how long you’ll need to store these for before making a final decision.
It’s also important to consider how often and at what times you’ll want to access your storage facility because this can be a big factor on which storage facility you choose. Not every facility will be open 24 hours a day, so if this is important to you, make sure to mention this when looking for quotes. There’s nothing worse than urgently needing to access your self-storage for a specific item and not being able to access it for a few days.
Of course, importantly you want to make sure that the price you pay for self-storage is reasonable and fits your budget exactly.
If you’re looking for a long term storage option, make sure to mention this, as many companies may offer you concessionary rates.
In fact, here at AVM Storage & Shipping our rates are extremely competitive and start from £1 a day per 250 cubic feet/ 7 cubic metre containers.
Safe & Secure Solution
It’s also important to make sure that your container is completely safe and secure. Check what security they have and CCTV monitoring.
Here at AVM, our facility has around-the-clock security, CCTV monitoring and the latest security systems. This is all in place to prevent unauthorised personnel from entering the facility.
