Self-storage is a great alternative to other methods of storage as it offers a lot of benefits that far outweigh the downsides of the rental of a unit. For instance, using a self-storage unit can prevent hoarding from becoming a problem in a household, thus preventing other such issues arising from the continued possession and accumulation of items and instead of placing them into the capable hands of a warehouse and storage unit.
Not only this but security is an issue for many people when using self-storage units, however, the units and warehouse that they are located in are locked securely overnight and each storage unit should be locked by you when not in the presence of the unit. The warehouses are also equipped with alarm systems and CCTV in the case of a burglary or attempted theft of a storage unit.
Self-storage units are extremely affordable for the size used as this is up to you as the owner of the unit sometimes even being £5 to rent a unit for an entire week which is quite cheap when this becomes either monthly or annual payments
Not only this but companies can offer insurance for these self-storage units up to a certain time limit in case any damage, theft or vandalism occurred in the time allotted when you purchased the self-storage unit which makes the storage unit even more useful and secure as the company will match or even surpass the amount the items would cost.
The amount of the storage unit is controlled entirely by you, the size, price and location of the storage unit is down to your choice and what is required by you, dependent on the company and other factors listed prior, the unit is customizable to your needs and desires for what you need to store inside.
