Self storage is generally a low cost expense. Sometimes though – if you have a lot of items to store, especially if you have to store them for a long time, costs can mount up.
It is worth investigating ways to maximise your space and keep those costs down in order to get the cheapest solution to keeping your self-store possessions safe.
How long do you need to keep your items in storage?
Are you moving house and wanting to store some items over the move, or is your child leaving home and you want some space whilst they are travelling or working elsewhere? If you will be storing your items for a period of months or years rather than weeks, it is better to consider long term storage packages – you may be able to save money in the long run by buying the space that is needed over a longer period upfront.
What storage space do you need?
Be sure to check exactly how much space you will need for the duration of your self storage. Storage unit prices vary depending on the size of the unit. If you have only smaller items or items can be stacked or stored inside one another it may be possible to get a smaller unit.
You may want to consider selling items you no longer need, or are unlikely to need again. It is unwise to invest in long term storage for certain electrical items as they may well be unusable or incompatible with current technology by the time you come to remove them from your unit.
Share and share alike
It’s nice to share especially when it saves you money! Sharing a unit with someone you know well is a good way to stick to your budget. By sharing the space you can share on the cost and keep the price down for both you and your friend.
