Long-Term or Short-Term Lease for Your Storage Unit? Choose What’s Right for You

Self-Storage LondonYou may already know that Storage units come in different sizes and with different terms of lease. You can rent a Storage unit for as little as a few days or weeks or for as long as a lifetime. Movers provides a multitude of options when it comes to selecting a Self Storage unit. Not only that, we can help you decide what is the right unit for you and your needs and which length of time might be realistic. Read on to see what the right Storage Solution for you might be, and if you still have questions or need advice regarding Storage, phone us on 020 8746 4335 and we will be happy to oblige.

If you are taking off on holiday for a few weeks or even for a few months and want to make absolutely sure that your most valuable belongings are locked up safe and sound somewhere, choose a short-term lease on a Self Storage unit. You can drop your things off at your convenience. And yes, that means even after working hours. That’s where the convenience aspect of Self Storage comes in. You can pack them up way ahead of time and get them out of the house so that you won’t have to worry about those items during the mad rush that usually takes place the day of your trip. Think of how much calmer your preparations will be if you have secured your valuables ahead of time. It’s just one less thing to worry about.

If you are moving away from your home and will be living quite some distance from the Storage facility – maybe even in a different country – it is preferable to choose a Storage facility like ours which offers long-term leases for people who won’t need access very frequently. Many people think that moving abroad means a clean break. It is a pretty romantic ideal of something that actually takes a huge amount of planning and preparation. If you know for certain that you will be returning at some point or even if you don’t know that for certain but still want to hold onto to some invaluable items, long-term Storage is for you.

There are plenty of people who use Storage for short periods of time when they find themselves in a bind. But there are also lots of people who use long-term Storage options because the units can act as an extension of the home. Keeping old furniture might be a bad idea if it is crowding your out of your home. But with a long-term Storage unit from our company it might be a great idea. You could give it to your kids when they move out on their own; you could keep it until you find a buyer willing to offer you a great price; you could hold onto it until you build that dream vacation home and suddenly have a need for furnishings. If furniture is what you are storing in your Storage unit, you probably don’t need to access it too often. Then again, you may want to change the look of your home every few months, but that’s up to you.

If you use a Storage unit as closet space that you simply don’t have in your home, there are plenty of things that you could put into it so you don’t have to look at them or trip over them all the time. There are items such as seasonal decorations, clothing that is used only at certain times of the year or outdoor toys and recreational items that get pulled out only in the warmer months. If this is the situation in your home, a long-term lease would be your choice as well. It doesn’t matter that you will be visiting the Storage facility every weekend – how often you access your things is entirely up to you. A long-term lease will, however, help you save even more money in the long run. Another thing you might consider keeping in a Storage unit is your archive; that is, tax papers and documents that you need to hang on to, but that just take up too much space in your home office. Even with almost everything being stored electronically or online these days, it is always best to have hard copies of your most important documents. And the safest place to keep them is in Storage.

Storage FacilityShort-term leases, as previously mentioned, are great for people who are going on holiday and know they will be away from home for a specific period of time. Did we mention that it really eases the experience of unpacking if your house is free of clutter when you arrive home from that wonderful vacation? A short-term lease will also do the trick for people who aren’t moving abroad, but merely moving across town or even just across the neighbourhood.

When you are in the process of moving, there are many different stages. One of those stages is clearing away things that you no longer use and would like to get rid of. By putting them in a Storage unit with Movers you won’t have to worry about leaving them out on the lawn or throwing away something of value. Place those items in a Storage unit and you can sort through them in a much more relaxed fashion after all the Cardboard Boxes have been unloaded and the movers have helped you unpack and the moving van has finally pulled away. You will have plenty on your plate and probably won’t want to worry about how to delivery the old wardrobe to the charity shop. If it’s in a Storage unit, you can put it off until life has gotten back to normal. Another stage of moving is placing your furniture in your new home. This is tough to do if the space is overcrowded with furniture and items you are planning to dispense of. Put them in one of the Storage units from our company and your move will be that much smoother.
