Why you should consider long-term self storage
People may consider long-term self storage for a diverse range of reasons, from moving homes, becoming a student, home improvements, moving abroad, or simply to help with decluttering their living space. Some individuals also use business storage units for their professional storage needs.
We at Currie Easy Self Storage have thought of some key reasons why you should consider long-term self storage.
Security is one key reason why people go down the route of long-term self storage since a well-run self storage facility will most likely have far superior security measures in place compared to those found in residential homes. Here at Currie Easy Self Storage, our storage units are monitored 24 hours a day by a state-of-the-art CCTV security system.
How secure are self storage units?
Self storage units are pretty secure when you find a provider who knows what they are doing and is on top of things security-wise, like we are here at Currie Easy Self Storage. With us, your individual storage unit will be alarmed and our store locations all have fire detection systems. Only those with special authorisation are able to enter the building.
To help cover your back at all times, we do require you to have insurance in place before you move your goods into storage. For an affordable price, we can include your goods on our insurance, otherwise, you are free to organise your own coverage.
Moving home can be a tense time. In fact, in a survey, 57% of British adults recently described moving home as one of the most stressful life events. If you rent and move home fairly regularly between different tenancies, you may have to move home together with all your belongings every 12 months or less.
Moving home can be a time when we at Currie Easy Self Storage come in useful to you with our Isleworth, Twickenham, and Richmond storage units. In need of affordable car & van hire for your move? We offer that as a service as well.
Moving overseas or travelling
Have you decided to pick up your bags and move abroad for the foreseeable future? Moving overseas could be an exciting new chapter in your life. But you may also want to keep your belongings safely stored away somewhere to access whenever you visit the UK on holiday or should you ever decide to return to the UK. Therefore, renting a cheap self storage unit with us at Currie Easy Self Storage can be ideal if you are moving overseas or going off travelling.

After all, your tinsel will start to appear a bit solemn come mid-January! Fear not, we have all your seasonal storage needs covered here at Currie Easy Self Storage.

Storage during home improvements
Are you having major home renovations done that will take a while? Perhaps you are getting an extension? It can leave you feeling in a bit of limbo and you will need alternative long-term storage arrangements, and hiring a self storage unit can be a great safe way of storing your household items and protecting them from dust and debris of home improvement projects.
In 2021-22 there were estimated to be just under 3 million students enrolled in higher education courses in the UK, and many students fly the nest and move to another town city for their university. The UK also has a significant number of international students. All students need somewhere to store their belongings, and student properties and accommodations don’t tend to be spacious with generous storage space.
Medicine students as well as those studying for master’s and PhDs end up spending a lot longer at university. At Currie Easy Self Storage, we offer the perfect long-term student storage solution, and if you refer a friend, we provide you with vouchers as a special thank you.
