5 Reasons You NEED a Storage Unit In Southend

Southend is a resort town with beautiful sea views and the world’s longest pier. Like most of the UK, there has been a growing need for self storage. Using a storage unit Southend can hugely benefit your home and work life.

Within this article, we are going to talk you through the top five reasons as to why you need a storage unit Southend.

1. Space Optimization for Small Homes and Apartments

Using a storage unit Southend will allow people with small homes and apartments to really optimise their space. In modern homes, storage is often overlooked and they rarely have cellars, lofts or other storage areas.

Storage in Southend can help residents who are living with limited living or storage space to declutter their homes and get the most out of the living space they do have.

2. Secure Storage for Valuables

Our storage units Southend are all fitted with an intruder alarm, a smoke detector and a fire detector. Alongside this, we have 24/7 CCTV surveillance monitoring the entire Southend facility.

This allows us to offer everyone secure self storage which is perfect for storing valuable items. This can include items such as artworks, jewellery or business assets. It is also ideal for items that have a sentimental value. You can rest assured that these items will be kept safe.

3. Supporting Business Growth

Storage units Southend can also help your business and support it as it grows. They will give you a place in which to store your business stock and/or equipment.

And if you choose to use our storage units Southend, you will also get a flexible rental contract which will allow you to upgrade your unit as your business grows. You will also be able to add some extra storage during a particular busy time, such as Christmas.

If you find that you no longer need your storage unit Southend, you are free to leave before your rental period ends. We just need 14 days notice.

Self storage in Southend is an excellent solution for you inventory management and document archiving.

4. Facilitating Life Transitions

Self storage in Southend will be extremely beneficial during any changes you have over your life.

A great reason for using a storage unit Southend is if you are moving house or downsizing. Moving can be an extremely stressful endeavour, with it often being voted as the most stressful thing a person can do in their lives. Self storage can help ease some of the stress by giving you a space to store all your belongings so you can begin packing nice and early, you can get your new home ready and you can unpack at your own pace.

If you decide to renovate to make your current home work better for you, a storage unit Southend will be very useful. Renovating is a very messy endeavour and using self storage will mean that your belongings are safe from the mess and from being damaged.

A storage unit Southend will also be helpful if you decide to go travelling for an extended period of time. More and more people are heading off on ‘adult gap years’ and secure storage in Southend will allow you to enjoy your travels without worrying about whether your belongings are fully protected.

5. Affordable and Flexible Storage Options


Using self storage Southend can also prove to be a very cost effective solution for space management within your home or office.

There are two other ways to gain more space in your home – moving to a new house or adding an extension. Both of these options would cost a great deal more than using self storage as the average cost of moving house is around £12,000 and the average cost of house extension, depending on size, is anywhere between £30,000 to £140,000.

Self storage is a much more cost effective way in which to have better space management and with the flexibility that comes with self storage. 

With a storage unit Southend, you will get a flexible contract, with many storage companies offering short-term and long-term contracts.

Short-term contracts are when you are only needing a storage unit for under 3 months. These are excellent for house moves or for when the kids come home from university for the long summer break. Long-term is anything that is longer than 3 months. These types of contracts are excellent for businesses, home renovations and for anyone who is going travelling for an extended period. 

At Cinch Self Storage Southend, we are happy to offer you short-term and long-term contracts but our contracts are also completely flexible. This means that if you need to upgrade or downgrade your unit at any point in your contract, we will help to make this happen as quickly as possible. If you need to leave your unit earlier than expected, you are completely free to do this. We just need 14 days notice.
