Who uses a storage unit

The simple answer is that everyone can use self storage units as they are ideal for a variety of purposes, both personal and professional. They are perfect for keeping your items safe and secure when you may not have enough room to store them in your premises or home.

There are several specific ways or circumstances in which people use self-storage units.

The business owner

If you are a business owner you may not have room on your premises or in your home to store all your products. This is particularly true of those who sell online only through their own website or marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, or Etsy. A self storage unit will allow you to store your goods securely and despatch them when an order is placed.

If you are the owner of a small business with small business premises, you may find it more cost effective to buy your products or raw materials in bulk. It may be that you don’t have enough room on your premises to keep your ordered items – a cheap self storage unit will solve your problem.

The office manager

An office manager will be well aware that there is an awful lot of paperwork it is important to keep in case it needs to be reviewed by the HMRC. If your office is very small, office self storage is a secure way to keep the retained files. You will be able to archive the documents that you don’t need to hand on a regular basis and still be able to produce them should you need to.

Office self storage is also a consideration should you be moving offices and have older office furniture that needs to be stored until your new premises are completely finished. If you are doing a gradual move, or have realised you have office furniture that you will need to dispose of, a self storage unit is the ideal solution to your short term issue.

The student

Whether it’s moving out of halls and into a shared house at the end of your first year, or just having somewhere to store your belongings over the summer, student storage is often a concern for most students. Using a self storage unit can be a good solution for the summer breaks or when you are moving. From kayaks to text books, a storage unit will have all the space you need to keep your items in one place whilst you move about.

Storage units are also ideal if you are looking for student storage whilst you travel. Instead of having to cart your stuff back home. You can rest safe in the knowledge that your belongings are safe whilst you discover the world.

The renovator or home mover

Self storage is a great way to keep furniture, clothing, and electrical goods safe whilst you carry out a renovation project or negotiate a house move. Storage can also be used for those who are moving an elderly relative or have inherited family heirlooms that they have no space for in their own homes.
