Why you might need a temporary self storage unit in London

A big issue for people these days is storage space. Whether you’re looking for a big or small space, it doesn’t come cheap, especially in London. Here are some reasons why a temporary self storage unit might be for you.

Going traveling

In this day and age, travelling has become a part of many peoples’ lives. Whether it be for business or pleasure, someone somewhere is doing it. In cases like this, it would be handy to have a self storage unit so you can place your possessions in a comfortable and secure facility without bothering friends and family.

Moving home

It’s obvious but many people choose to self store while moving or after they have moved. If you are moving to a smaller house and suddenly find yourself overcrowded with furniture or staying with a friend and having nowhere to place your things, moving the items to a temporary self storage in London may be the best solution

Need more space

The lack of space in one’s home is another reason why people choose to self store. Since the cost of living has increasingly risen, moving to a larger place is sometimes not an option. Sometimes staying or moving to smaller living spaces with storage units is beneficial as there is no need to throw away valuables which mean so much to them.

Hobby or sports

Many sports are seasonal and often require a large amount of equipment in order for you to play them. Most people wouldn’t like to store bulky equipment in their homes and would be better off using a small self storage unit.


For the past few years, businesses often use self storage facilities, often housing business furniture and files and other items they don’t require at that moment in time.
