The benefits of short and long term storage in London

London is an exciting and thriving place in which to live, study and work. Perhaps you are downsizing your home. Or perhaps you run a landlord business or online service and find yourself needing extra storage that is both practical and cost effective. If this is the case, then it is very worthwhile considering using storage units in London. Below we explain the main differences between short and long term storage and how you can benefit from using these type of storage containers.

Why use long term storage in London?

Individuals use long term storage for a range of different reasons. When living in London and the surrounding areas, property and renting property is an expensive business, especially if you’re looking for property with additional rooms for storing possessions. One cheaper and safer option is to use long term storage in which you can keep personal belongings, business stock or furniture. Long term storage is safe, secure and incredibly cost-effective.

When is short term storage the better option?

Sometimes you may just need a short term solution to storing your belongings. This type of storage is ideal if you are moving home but need to live in rented property, or with family, for a short period of time between relocation. Short term storage is also ideal if you are planning to renovate your home and need somewhere to store furniture and other personal belongings. Short term storage is also a good option for students who need somewhere to store their belongings between moving to new halls of residence or student flats.
