If you are searching for storage units in London there is a plethora of facilities and deals on offer – but there are a number of things to consider when comparing facilities and storage unit prices in London. You want to source a storage facility that will offer you the security, access and peace of mind to know that your valuable possessions will be taken care of professionally and properly.
You will want to secure the best deal, service and value for money that you can – here some aspects you should consider before choosing your storage facility:
Identifying the space required for your belongings
The first aspect you need to establish is just how much storage space you are going to need to house your valuables. Many storage facilities in London offer a range of different sized units – you don’t want to rent an overly-large storage space, as most companies charge by the square footage and you don’t want to be paying for space you don’t need!
At the same time, you want to ensure that the storage you rent is large enough for all your goods to be stored safely and comfortably, so as to avoid any damage to them in their time in storage. Working out how much space you will need beforehand will allow you to rent the most appropriate and efficient storage space.
How long do you need to store your valuables?
Storage units are available to rent for any period of time from a just week to years – it is worth noting that the length of time you need the storage can have a bearing on the storage unit prices in London, so take that into account when considering your storage facility choice. Longer term storage may attract better rates – but if you know for sure that you will only require the unit for a short period then book for that period of time only!
Figuring out your budget for storage in central London
Whilst it would be lovely to just rent the most expensive and highly recommended storage facility in your area, it may not always be financially viable – consider the budget you have for your storage needs and then consider the available choices of storage facilities in that financial range. It is always worthwhile ‘shopping around’ and comparing prices, as well as facilities and services, of a number of different storage companies. Most will have price lists and rates readily available for you to see, but it can be useful to just ring them or visit, to talk through your specific storage requirements and get quotes from them. Having collated all that information you can then make a considered choice as to which storage company best caters for your needs and budget.
Do your research and read reviews
When you are in the market for any product or service these days, there is plenty of information available to check out the potential providers. Any reputable storage facilities will have online reviews you can refer to, along with other sites and articles online offering advice and recommendation for storage facility services. It is always worth speaking to anybody that you know who has recently moved home or rented a storage facility for whatever reason – personal recommendation and first-hand, word-of-mouth reviews are the most valuable guides to choosing the storage facility for your needs.
Speaking with other businesses in the same arena can also be useful. If you are using a removal company to transport the goods you want to store, then ask if they can recommend a good storage facility that they have worked with – they will have local knowledge and years of experience to offer meaningful recommendations.
With a wide range of storage unit prices in London, it is worth the time and effort to identify beforehand your exact storage needs, then do the ‘homework’ to establish the best deal for yourself!
