Reasons To Move Items Into A Storage Facility
What do you need from a large van, a capable driver and a big spacious storage unit? Our customers find a wide range of purposes for their items. These include:
Need to hold a three piece suite, an unused car or stacks of old books? Putting domestic items into storage frees up valuable space in the home, garden and garage. When people move to a new house, we’re often asked to transport spare items to a facility to avoid cluttering up the new home.
Old white goods, for example, are often put into storage when replaced with a superior model. They are later sold or given away, but at least in the interim they don’t spoil the front garden or utility room. Many a fridge-freezer unit has made its final journey in our van, while its owner beams at all the free space it has left!
Some businesses run on a biannual or seasonal basis, often requiring large machinery or equipment to be stored safely in the fallow years. Festival stalls or craft traders - with all their stages, cooking and exhibition equipment - prefer to keep the goods tidied away in the winter months while they plan for the following summer.
Alternatively, business owners may need additional space to bolster a tiny office. They find that certain documents, office furniture and computer equipment are best stored offsite until the company grows. Company archives do not need to clutter up a tiny office, if a storage facility is just down the road. The same goes for those dozens of chairs and tables that are only used at the annual AGM.
Storage For Buying/Selling Items
Online trading is not limited to small packages and eBay delivery. Some people sell cars, motorbikes, sheds, summer houses and heavy garden architecture. These transactions do not take place immediately, and there can be long crossover periods while buyer and seller prepare the relevant arrangements.
In these cases, people use storage companies to temporarily house large items and declutter the home. Sellers can often be seen at their storage facilities, tinkering away at cars and giving them a last polish before handing over the keys.
