Increasingly, people are using self-storage units for a variety of reasons. Some grow out of their living space, while others want to keep family heirlooms and there is an increasing number of small businesses in need of storage space.
Here are some of the most common reasons why people use self-storage units:
Running out of space at home
Many people do not want to get rid of goods if they are still in good condition or have an emotional attachment. There is a strong desire to keep the goods ‘just in case’ or perhaps because they were planning to pass them to a family member at some point in time. It could be bicycles, beds, old hi-fi equipment or bookcases. Many parents also want to save the furniture in preparation for when their children make the leap and move out, needing all the help they can get.
Have you been offered the chance to work away, perhaps abroad for 12 months? If so, and you own a property, you might want to rent out your property while you are away. Many homeowners in this position do not want to leave all their belongings in the house so using a self-storage unit will ease your worries and keep everything stored safely out of danger.

Garden furniture and machinery
Summer gives way to autumn and the grass has been cut for the last time. It’s time to get rid of all the garden furniture and equipment, but where? If the space available in the shed or garage is not big enough or you don’t have a garage or shed and you know you will not use machines or furniture for a good few months, the storage unit can provide the right solution.
