Looking for Temporary Storage in Southampton?
Southampton is a university city with 23,000 students swelling the population each year. They’re what gives the city it’s energy and dynamism, and there’s a long-term gain, too. Many of the students stay on once their studies are over to either join the jobs market or create their own start up companies.
At Schepens Self Storage, we see a distinct pattern in the use of our self-storage facilities that reflects the yearly migration as students pack up their accommodation and go home each summer. Southampton students quickly get wise to the fact that placing their furniture and goods in temporary storage is far more cost-effective than continuing to rent through the summer months.
Temporary Storage in Southampton is a Cost-Effective Option
Temporary storage works really well for:
Seasonal Retail – whether it’s summer stock, Christmas goods, or bulk-buying, many of Southampton’s smaller retailers use temporary storage to manage the fluctuations in their stock. Rather than extending their premises, they’re able to rent storage with Schepens during the months when they need it.
Office Refurbishment – Schepens is often asked to facilitate the temporary storage of office furniture, paper records, or IT equipment whilst offices are refurbished. We are able to provide packing services for paper documents, with detailed labelling to facilitate ease of access. Our removals team also offers furniture disassembly, and reassembly if required.
Working Abroad – families who relocate for work purposes, often decide to rent out their property whilst they’re away. Schepens can store household goods for short or long periods as necessary. Should circumstances change, we can also arrange for shipping of the goods you have stored with us, to your new home.
How Does Temporary Storage in Southampton Work?
Whatever your reason for wanting to temporarily store goods with us, the process is simple, flexible and always cost-effective. First, we determine the size of container you require, and the length of storage hire. Second, we deliver the container to your location when you need it. Our BAR trained professional packing team can help if appropriate. Otherwise we can provide professional packaging materials.
Once your container is loaded, we will ask you to sign off the inventory at which point it will be transported to our local facilities. There your goods will be subject to 24 hour CCTV and access controlled access. Temperature and humidity is carefully controlled to ensure optimum conditions for paper, electrical equipment, wood and fabrics.
Accessing Your Storage Container
