A secure storage facility could be the best way to travel freely and with full peace of mind.
Whether you are travelling for work or just for adventure, knowing what to do with your possessions can be a challenge. Do you sell everything you own and simply purchase it back when you return? Should you ask a friend to store it? If you are struggling to know how to find the right travelling storage option, then keep reading. A secure storage facility could be the best way to travel freely and with full peace of mind.
Safe & Secure location for your belongings
One of the primary considerations when looking for storage while travelling is finding a safe place to put your most precious items. Whether this means furniture that could easily become damaged or boxes of family photographs, a storage facility can provide a safe and secure location. Your items will be locked away from anyone else in a tightly monitored facility, away from damp and sun damage. You will be able to access your possessions as and when you need them, but others will not have any access allowed. This is much more secure than placing your items in a friend’s garage, where you could run the risk of dampness, weather damage, or even theft due to lacklustre security measures.
Storage is cost-effective
Transporting large items overseas or even around the UK can be extremely expensive, especially if you plan to move around fairly regularly. Especially for backpackers or those travelling for work, storage can be the most cost-effective option. You will only pay for the size of storage that you need, and you will not need to pay any additional transport costs aside from dropping off and picking up your possessions. Long-term storage can be extremely fairly priced, but again you will only pay for the amount of time you require the storage for.
Short & Long-term options are available
You may require storage for a significant length of time. For example, if you have taken a year-long contract with a company in a different country or city, or plan to travel the world for a period of time. However, if you only need storage options for a few weeks while you head away for a holiday or business trip, or you will be transporting your possessions to a new location at a later date, short-term storage is available to meet your needs.
You can always pay to store your possessions for longer if you unexpectedly need to extend. This means that you are not locked into a contract for an amount of time that you don’t need – which can be vital for students, those travelling for just a few weeks over the summer, or those with changing needs.
You can sublet your home/apartment
If you are a homeowner or living in a long-term rental, then you might wish to either rent out or sublet your home while you are away. This can be more challenging if your property is filled with your own personal furniture and possessions. In order to create a more desirable space (and to keep your own items safe from damage), self-storage can be essential. You can simply move out what you don’t want in your home, and sublet to a new occupant while you are away. Not only will this ensure your home is taken care of, but it can also help you to move more quickly if you need to sublet in order to cover a rental period. And if you want to move back into your property later, your items will be available immediately.
