Here at Seaview Storage in Folkestone, Kent, we understand that if you don’t know much about it, self storage can look very complicated. There are different types of self storage, different sized units, different lengths of stay and if you’re unsure about what exactly you need, finding the right storage solution for you can be tricky. However finding you the perfect self storage solution is our top priority. Here’s our step by step guide to how self-storage works.
The first thing you need to do is decide what you are storing and what category of storage these items will fall under. If you are decluttering your house and are storing things like household good and sports equipment, you’ll need household storage crates. If you want to store files or business documents, you’ll need business storage. For larger items you’ll need to store your possession in shipping containers. Cars and caravans often require their own specialist storage.
Choosing the right size of storage and how long you need to store your possessions there is essential to managing both your space and your money. By knowing exactly how long you need the storage can help you compare prices between facilities. Storage companies will often advise on the best size of container for your storage needs. It helps to get in contact to discover their range of prices and storage options.
When you choose a company, get in contact as soon as possible. Often they have contact forms on their website, or you could simply email or call them. They may have introductory offers now they know you are interested. Once you’re happy with the price they offer, make sure to reserve your storage unit or space straight away to avoid disappointment.
Ensuring your items are packed up properly is incredibly important. You don’t want to have them damaged in transit or in your unit, and the best way to secure their condition is to pack properly. Many storage companies offer a range of packaging materials from boxes to bubble-wrap. You can also buy these online. Make sure all your fragile items are wrapped piece and piece and boxes are padded to make sure items don’t move around and break when transported to the storage site.
Once your possessions are stored away, you can sit back safe in the knowledge that your chosen company will keep your items safe and secure. Your unit will be monitored by CCTV and any number of other top security systems so you will have peace of mind knowing your items are well looked after.
