With the advent of self storage many people are paying very high rates to store small volumes of goods in difficult to access premises spread over multiple floors. This means you have to wait for lifts and physically manhandle your goods into the lift and up to various floors, then to your storage unit. You have to ensure your unit is big enough to handle your requirements without paying for space not all used.
There is an alternative. Containerised storage. We can make containers available at ground level for your vehicle to back up to the doors and unload into a sealed wooden container. If necessary we can organise transport to deliver and collect the containers. You fill only the container or containers you need. You can collect goods again from the ground floor (seven days notice).
If you wish to compare containerised storage with traditional self storage then divide the total cubic volume by five and this will give you the square footage needed from a self storage company based on you stacking the goods to an average height of five feet. You will find self storage to be expensive and inconvenient when you factor in the distance from your vehicle to your unit. The reason we suggest a height of five foot is that your space at self storage does not let you have the convenience of four walls to stack against whereas the wooden containers do. You can of course divide by six if you think you have the skills to stack at six foot tall. Self storage will quote you a rate per square foot and you can then get a good comparison.
We can recommend companies using containerised storage vehicles who can bring the containers to your address and prepare an inventory and load and seal your goods into the containers.
