The reasons people choose to use self-storage vary. Some of the most common uses for self storage include:
- To store vehicles
A lot of people choose to use self-storage to store vehicles that they don't use on a regular basis. This can be anything from vintage cars to motorcycles. For example, I use self-storage in Essex to store my Harley Davidson.
- To store homeware items
Lots of people use self-storage to store homeware items whilst they are moving house. Some people also use self-storage long term to store expensive home items when they are traveling abroad for long periods of time.
- To store stock
Some businesses will use a secure storage facility
as a makeshift warehouse for their surplus stock. This is usually small business owners who don't have a space to store deliveries in their store. Storage facilities are also commonly used to store business paperwork.
