Why would you choose storage in a container over a room?

There are a lot of options when it comes to self-storage. Here Hazel explains the advantages of using containers for self-storage rather than rooms in a self-storage warehouse.



Here’s what Hazel has to say:

When you think of self-storage, you think of big buildings with lots of small rooms, right?

Well, I’m Hazel, and I’d like to introduce you to a whole new world of self-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 could cost you about half as much as the same sized unit in a local self-storage warehouse.

If you store your stuff in a self-storage container, you can literally reverse right up to your unit and load and unload directly from your vehicle. Some self-storage facilities will offer you this, but you’ll pay even more for the privilege. Normally, you have to unload your stuff onto a trolley, take your trolley into the building, wheel it along the corridor, and maybe even up in a lift until you get to your unit. With self-storage in a container, there are no lifts, no trolleys, and no hassle.

Not only do containers save you time and money, at the Space Program, we also offer you one fully inclusive price. This includes the high-security padlock that you’ll need, 24/7 access, and more importantly, up to £20,000 worth of insurance to cover your goods whilst they’re in storage. If you need more insurance than this, we can arrange that for you, too.

There are no hidden extras with us. Make sure, when you’re asking for prices for other people, that you find out what’s included.

Our security is second to none. We are very proud of our 100% security record. No customer has suffered a loss since we started looking after things for people way back in 2002.

All our sites are manned during the day. There’s always a friendly face around to make sure things are running smoothly and to make you a cup of tea.

We have CCTV, which is recorded 24 hours a day, floodlights, and state-of-the-art access control systems. So if you’re after easy access, cost-effective self-storage with a friendly face to help get you started, just get in touch to find out more.
