A Growing Demand for Local Storage in Salisbury
Who would have thought that the UK would adopt the idea of self storage with such enthusiasm? Since the first storage facility opened in London, in 1979, however, the concept has quickly gained ground. There are now over 1,500 facilities across the UK, and there’s no sign of the demand for them slowing down.
Local storage in Salisbury is just one of our Wiltshire self storage sites, but it’s unique in the sheer range and variety of uses to which it’s put. The local population have proved themselves imaginative, creative and hugely pragmatic when it comes to using container storage in Salisbury.
For anyone wondering why they might need self storage, here are 4 of the most popular uses we encounter.
1. Moving Home
This is one of the most complex changes we encounter in life, and it’s fraught with uncertainty. At Schepens we regularly store goods for movers who:
- Have their completion date delayed but need to move out of their home.
- Are consolidating two homes and find they have way too much stuff, but need time to decide what will stay and what will go.
- Plan to rent out their home whilst they work abroad.
- Need somewhere to store the effects of a family member who has moved into residential care.
In each case Schepens self storage staff will find the simplest, most flexible way to support movers.
2. Creating Space
There are few families that haven’t – at one time or another – despaired at the amount of clutter in their homes. Getting rid of it is always harder, and less fun, than amassing it. Which is where self-storage comes in. For families looking to create a nursery, or home office, we can provide a storage unit for stuff you need time to go through and make decisions about.
Container storage in Salisbury provides you with access to your stored goods 6 days a week, using a secure individual key-code.
3. Start-Up Spaces for Businesses
More and more, we’re seeing new businesses finding inventive ways to use local storage in Salisbury. Office space in the city centre is at a premium, and rents can be high, so many businesses start off operating from home. Container storage offers the opportunity to keep tools, stock or supplies securely. Our climate-controlled environment means that clients can store books, paper archives, or antiques without fear of damage or deterioration.
4. Small Container Storage in Salisbury
Many of our clients need to store small amounts of goods, for limited periods. We’re now seeing the city’s many tourists beginning to use self storage to store purchases whilst they tour the UK. Students tend to hire a storage container over university vacations when they need to move out of their accommodation. And local sports organisations use self storage for kit, or equipment.
