Why Do You Need a Self Storage Specialist?

When you have a number of items that you need to store for a certain period of time, above all, you want the peace of mind that they are well-protected from the risks of damage and theft. You’ll also want to make sure that such a level of protection doesn’t result in having to pay extortionate insurance costs.

Whether you would like to free up some space in your property; you’re moving home or office and require a temporary storage solution; or your business requires additional stock that you can quickly access when it’s needed, but you simply don’t have the room to store it, self-storage spaces offer a practical, safe and economical solution for both domestic and commercial purposes.

What Does a Self Storage Specialist Do?

Self storage specialists do not only provide the use of a storage room, but they also offer spaces users can access directly and conduct business from, for example, the changing of hands of merchandise and products on the premises. These solutions are characterised by flexibility in contracts to make storage even more convenient for you. Some of the responsibilities of a storage specialist include:

  • Providing domestic and commercial storage solutions: A self-storage specialist can offer you a bespoke storage solution for your business or personal goods. Many specialise, with some units designed specifically for furniture, products and merchandise, or documents. These storage services range from lockers for smaller items to large rooms priced per square meter for those with more extensive requirements.
  • Maintaining the space: Self-storage centers dedicated to the rental of storage rooms also provide maintenance and additional services, such as cleaning, total accessibility, 24-hour surveillance, fire-detection systems and private parking. Some might offer complementary services, such as insurance or free vans for transfer.

Self-storage services are the perfect solution for both long- and short-term needs. If you’re considering moving country, you’ll need the assistance of an international relocation expert. However, while you’re organising your move, you might require short-term storage until the big day. A self-storage unit is a secure, cost-effective option.
