Storage companies are a growing industry. Across the UK and America, more and more are springing up each week, and more and more people are making use of their services. But why? Today we’re explaining why people are using storage facilities and how they can help you!
Helping Small Businesses
It’s not just homeowners and downsizers who need storage space. One of the main users of self storage companies in the UK are small business owners. Small businesses have very flexible storage needs and this can be a challenge. While one month may be a quiet time with little space needed to store inventory, the next may see high demand with lots of space needed to process orders before sending them out.
Opting for a long term hire on either a big or small volume of space means you’ll run into problems down the line somewhere. Either you’ll have too little space for your peak periods, or be spending too much money on space you’re not using the majority of the time.
Storage companies are boon to small firms and seasonal businesses because they offer that vital flexibility, allowing people to move from large to small units as their needs dictate.
The student life comes with needs of its own, and not necessarily just for beer and coffee for all nighters.
Students move at least once a year, and also spend significant amounts of time at home with their family, or on placements in other parts of the country or other countries altogether! A good storage facility means a student can pack up and ship out, knowing all their precious possessions will be waiting for them when they get back from their travels. There are plenty of student storage deals and special rates available. Click through to find out more.
There’s almost no end to the uses a family will find for storage facilities. If you have a lot of children, you’ll find there’s a regular rotation of bedrooms every few years, as people grow up and leave, and you’re able to grant younger children their own room.
It’s a cause for celebration for the kids that don’t have to share any more, but it does leave you with your older children’s possessions on your hands. Anything they leave behind needs to be stored somewhere, and you are likely not going to want to throw it away. Keeping it in storage until it can be safely and permanently homed is a solution that won’t break any hearts!
