Five Reasons to Consider Self Storage

There are a lot of reasons to use self storage, but most of them boil down to this, you need more space to store your stuff! So it makes sense that people use self storage for a huge variety of things. Some of the most common reasons you might want to think about using our storage facilities in Somerset have been listed below.

Moving House

People who use self storage often do so because they’re moving out of their house and need a place to keep their belongings while they look for a new home or prepare to move. The flexibility this gives you can help make sure you don’t miss out on a potential property sale, and lets you take your next step on the property ladder.

To show their home off to best advantage it’s also common for people who are trying to sell their house to put their extra furniture and belongings into self storage in order to make the rooms look larger, less cluttered, and more appealing to their prospective buyers. Moving house can be a stressful time but it doesn’t have to be that way. Using self storage can help ease the pressure of a moving day. Tick that box before moving day is even on the calendar.

Somerset has recently become something of a property hot spot, but don’t forget that at Sparkford Storage we offer a nationwide removals service that can deliver direct to your new home or help you make the most of our storage options in the meantime.

Renovating Your Home

Sticking with the property theme, it’s worth keeping in mind that self storage is an ideal way to store your valuables whilst renovating your home. Whether you are just giving the place a new lick of paint or having major structural work carried out such as an extension or loft conversion, we can make sure your belongings are kept in a safe and secure environment. Sometimes dust sheets just don’t cut it.

Storing Sports Equipment

In addition to being used by people who are moving or renovating their homes, self storage is also a great idea for people who like getting out of the house. We’re blessed here in Somerset with some beautiful countryside to explore and rivers to enjoy. Outdoor sports often come with bulky equipment, kayaks, paddleboards, skis, or other seasonal equipment. Sports enthusiasts may not want this equipment taking up valuable cupboard space at home.

An added bonus of self storage is that the equipment stored will be safe from harsh weather when it’s not in use, thus prolonging its life and making it safer to use. If you’re a keen outdoor enthusiast get in touch about storing your equipment out of season.
