Many people choose to collect antiques and so often you can find unique pieces that are well made and really add something to your home.

You will need to pick a storage solution that helps to preserve your antiques.

Within this article we are going to discuss why self storage for antiques will be the perfect solution for your antique collection, helping you to store it and preserve it. 

1: Climate-Controlled Units Protect Against Environmental Damage

Climate control units will help to protect your antiques from environmental damage. Fluctuations in humidity and temperature can wreak havoc on an antique. Wood can expand and contract, leading to cracks and warping. No matter what your antique collection consists of – vintage vinyl records, rare comic books, or delicate textilestemperature and humidity needs to be kept consistent to avoid damage. 

Climate controlled units will allow you to maintain a stable condition which will protect your antiques from any environmental factors. 

2: Enhanced Security Features Ensure Safety

All professional self storage facilities will have high quality security systems in place to ensure the safety of all their customers belongings. The typical security features you can expect to find are things such as 24/7 CCTV surveillance, gated or pin-code access and secure locks. 

At Cinch Self Storage, we have pin-code access, 24/7 CCTV surveillance and each of our units is fitted with an intruder alarm and smoke and fire detectors. These types of security measures will provide you with peace of mind that your antiques are safe from theft and natural disasters such as fire. 

3: Customisable Storage Spaces Accommodate All Types of Antiques

Self storage for antiques will also give you the ability to customise your storage space and choose the type and size that works best for your antique collection. 

Within our self storage, we have many unit sizes available and each of our teams will be happy to help you find the unit that works best for you and your antiques. Also, we are perfectly happy for you to add shelving, racks or any other organisational tools in order to make your unit work best for you. 

4: Flexibility in Storage Size and Duration Offers Convenience

Many self storage companies offer short-term and long-term rental contracts but you also need to look for companies that offer flexibility. Flexible rental contracts allow you to upgrade or downgrade your unit, if and when you need to. They also allow you to leave your unit before your rental contract has expired. 

At Cinch Self Storage we only have flexible contracts. If you do want to leave your unit early, we just need 14 days notice.

5: Easy Access to Your Antiques When Needed

There is a lot of convenience when it comes to accessing your storage unit which is great for collectors who want to retrieve or rotate parts of their collections. 

The access hours available will depend on the company. At Cinch Self Storage, many of our stores have the extended opening hours of 6am to 11pm. Please check our website to see if your local store has these extended hours. 

6: Cost-Effectiveness with Self Storage for Antiques 

When it comes to the costs that come with self storage it is much more cost effective to rent a storage unit in which your antique collection will be safe and in good condition than it is to risk potential damage. Restoring or repairing antique furniture can cost hundreds of pounds, per piece of furniture. 

Using self storage for antiques is a worthwhile investment because you will be protecting the value of your antiques.  

The Benefits of Self Storage for Antiques

There are many benefits to using self storage for antiques. You will have a storage space that, with a flexible rental contract, can grow alongside your collection. And you collection will be safe from environmental factors and from theft due to the high levels of security found in professional self storage companies. 

We encourage you to really consider self storage as the perfect solution for storing and preserving your valuable antique collection.
