What are the pros and cons of different kinds of self-storage unit?

Why would you choose containers over self-storage rooms?

Hazel has made a video to answer these questions and more.

Hi, I’m Hazel and welcome to Thinking Inside the Box. When you think of self-storage, you think of big buildings with lots of small rooms, right? Well, I’d like to introduce you to a whole new world of storage.

But why would you choose to put your stuff in a container rather than a self-storage warehouse? Well, there are lots of reasons. For a start, it will cost you about half as much as the same sized unit in your local self-storage warehouse.

When you store your things in a self storage container, you can literally reverse right up to your unit. You can then load and unload directly from your vehicle. Some warehouses do offer you this service, but you’ll pay even more for the privilege. Normally you have to pack up, unload your stuff onto a trolley, wheel the trolley down the corridor, perhaps even up in a lift to your room. With containers, there are no trolleys, no lifts, no hassle.

Not only do storage containers save you time and money, at the Space Program, we offer you one fully inclusive price. It includes the high-security padlock you’ll need, 24/7 access and most importantly, your goods are covered by up to 20,000 pounds worth of insurance. If you need more insurance than this, we can arrange that for you.

There are no hidden extras with us. Make sure you ask what’s included if you’re getting prices from other people.

Our security is second to none. We started looking after things for people in 2002 and since then thousands of people have trusted us with their stuff and we haven’t let any of them down. We have 24 hour recorded CCTV, floodlights and state-of-the-art access control systems. All our sites are manned during the day. There’s always a friendly face in the depot to make sure things are running smoothly. And if you ask them nicely, they might even make you a cup of tea.

So, if you’re after easy access, cost-effective self-storage with a friendly face to help get you going, just get in touch to find out more. Welcome to a whole new world of storage.
