Moving house? Too many things? For as many reasons as there are to rent a Self Storage unit from StoreLocal Newmarket, there is ‘stuff’ to put in them – leaving you with a living environment that is so much easier to keep clean and tidy.

So, are you in the market to rent a self storage unit? Check out our profiles and see if the cap fits.

For people in business, on-site storage at your workplace can be difficult, so a Self Storage unit can function as a personal warehouse. It might be for document boxes and record storage, or it might be the perfect solution for overflow or sales stock.

For tradespeople or a busy home handyman, Self Storage is the perfect solution to keeping expensive tools and machinery safe. Consider the items you don’t need access to every day, and lock them away – power tools, spare timber, work bench, mowers and ride-on mowers, even yard tools like spades, especially over winter when you can take some downtime from the gardening.

For the do-it-yourself mechanic or part-time motorsport fanatic, a Self Storage unit is as good as your own personal garage, with more space to keep wheels, motors and other car parts, as well as the tools needed to work with them.

If you’re at university or college, especially if you are living in student accommodation, a small Self Storage area could be the perfect solution for books and other materials you don’t need every day, that might be cluttering up your living space.

If the kids have left home, or you’re simply not ready to part with some of their possessions, then Self Storage can be the new home for any of their excess stuff: old bicycles, gym or sports equipment, even childhood furniture. Of course, if the ‘kids’ are returning to the roost, you can encourage them to rent a space to put everything they have accumulated while they have been away from home.

Moving house is often a reason for needing some extra space, whether you are renting for a while, or downsizing and not quite ready to ditch some of your possessions. It may also be an option for storing new possessions if you are waiting for a new home to be finished.

Furniture, bedding, kitchen equipment, TVs and other entertainment units, whitegoods, linen, even outdoor furniture and barbecues – almost anything that is superfluous to your current needs can be safely packed away in self storage, providing the appropriate care is taken to protect them from deterioration.

No matter what you want to store, plan ahead to ensure it’s as secure as it can be. Think of using pallets to keep things off the ground, make sure they are sealed, well wrapped or covered, use plenty of labels and keep a checklist on exactly where you packed things.

With a bit of forward thinking, when you come back to your Self Storage unit from StoreLocal Newmarket, your goods should be in perfect condition.
