We’ve looked at the cost of space in various parts of west London before, but haven’t looked at Kensington … which is one of the most expensive areas of them all.
According to Rightmove, terraced properties sell for a staggering average price of £4,290,505 – that’s right, over £4 million for a terraced property – while semi-detached properties go for an even more staggering £6,129,357 on average.
We mention this point not to wonder how anyone can ever get on the property ladder in Kensington (although we do wonder that) but to put the cost of self storage prices in Kensington into some perspective.
Self Storage in Kensington: It’s cheaper than moving
If you need more space for whatever reason – and we’ve run through many of the reasons before – you can, of course, simply buy or rent a bigger place … but at these prices that isn’t quite so straightforward is it? Or you could have an extension built – but that will cost tens of thousands of pounds and take months, not to mention the hassle and the upheaval and the planning permission.
Or you could – as an increasing number of people are doing – see self storage as not purely a temporary solution to a temporary problem, but a longer term solution to the lack of space and the cost of acquiring more of it.
After all, why not? Your stored items will be safe and secure, and providing that you don’t want constant access to them (keep such things at home) then you can view the storage unit as an extension of your home … only a little further away!
Remember to look out for contract flexibility; whether you only pay for the space you actually need; how convenient the location is; and any hidden costs such as insurance, or retrieving some of your stuff early
And so onto the headline figure – the storage rates themselves. Sure, these need to be competitive, but they also need to be taken into context with all of the factors mentioned above.
