Looking for a Storage Facility Southampton?
As a port city, Southampton has always been a hub for merchants, sailors and passengers journeying to and from countries across the globe. Now the dynamism of the city tends to be defined by a shifting student population, businesses moving in and out of the region and start-ups at the beginning their commercial journey. Whatever the mode and purpose of the journey Southampton has always been characterised and energised by people ‘on the move’.
Storage Facilities for People on the Move
Self storage hardly existed until the 1980s in the UK but over the past 50 years the industry has experienced phenomenal growth. There are now around 1,500 storage facilities across the country, and no sign of growth slowing down. So why are they so popular? There are lots of possible answers. Our lives are less ‘settled’, our work is less rooted, and our kids are less grounded. We’re now a society on the move, and we need somewhere to stow our goods whilst we travel.
