Your storage problems solved

    Think carefully about whether you need storage or not. The business is a tricky one, and once you get on it, the storage slope is a slippery place to be! You will find that you put things in storage not really knowing when you are going to take them out. This means that you are essentially paying to own something that you do not use or enjoy the sight of, and so the value of each item increases as you pay monthly for the unit.

Of course, if you have incredibly valuable antiques that are priceless, or worth a lot by way of your family then this is a cost that you can take, but if it is just a few bits and pieces that you don’t really use or need, then perhaps selling everything on would make more sense?
   b2ap3_thumbnail_Your-storage-problems-solved2.jpg Many People put things in to storage as they don’t really know what else to do with them. It is much easier to chuck a load of cash at a unit to make your extraneous items disappear, but if you were to spend a couple of days selling on the things that were so worth keeping, then you would likely have a decent bit of cash, which you could put away for if you ever needed to buy such a thing again. Unfortunately the nature of these older items that you don’t want or need in your house will not fetch a huge amount of money, but it is the same the other way round. If you have a washing machine that may go into Cudham storage, you could sell it for fifty quid. Admittedly that is a lot less than you probably bought it for, but it is also a lot better than paying fifty quid a month to store it, given that it is not clear when you will need it again. Why not wait and buy a second hand one if you are in need in the future?
    If you feel like you still need storage, then you need to look at the three deciding factors that will govern how you go about storing your items: size, location, type.
    These three variables will affect the price, as well as ensuring that you are getting the right storage for your items.
If you are concerned about getting the size of the unit right for the items that you need to store, then try piling everything into the corner of a room or garage, and taking a measurement square around the pile. If you multiply the height by the width by the length of that - cuboids, you will have a rough volume that you can use as a reference when looking into units. Having such information when you are on the phone to the company will make things a lot quicker and easier.
    Get a unit that has a little more room than you actually need, to ensure that you are able to move stuff about, or even add to the stored items at a later date.
    Look into where the unit is; city units will be a lot more expensive than countryside ones, but are your fuel costs going to negate the savings if you have to drive ages to check on your things?
    The type of unit is important to think about as well, as the susceptibility to damp, pests and temperature changes can affect the items that you store there. You will find that the price is determined by how sturdy the items are that need to be put away.
