Allotments and gardening: How our storage units in Mitcham will help

Allotments and gardening: How our storage units in Mitcham will help 

2020 and everything we all went through saw a rise in the demand for allotments. Some council run allotments saw as much as a 300% increase in applications. 

And with one in five people in London not having access to any kind of garden or outdoor space, it is not surprising that London has seen an even greater demand. Some London allotments have over 3,000 people on their waiting lists alone and Londoners are often looking at a decade-long wait, with Camden being the place with the longest wait. One Camden gardener had to wait over 18 years to gain access to a plot. 

But with gardening having been proven to have substantial health benefits on a person’s physical and mental health, it is not surprising that so many people are still joining the waitlists and are willing to wait so long. 

If you happen to be one of the lucky people to have an allotment within the Mitcham area, you may have found that you do not have the space to store your tools at home. Our self storage units in Mitcham would be a perfect place to store all your tools and equipment.

Self storage in Mitcham: How we can help 

The perfect storage unit 

Our self storage in Mitcham is ideal for all your gardening and allotment tools as it starts at 10 sq ft. Our smaller sized units will make a perfect makeshift shed for all of your gardening equipment. 

Convenient location in Mitcham

And our Mitcham facility is less than 10 minutes drive from three local allotments, including Eastfields Allotments and Hadley Road Community Allotments, making it perfectly positioned for anyone renting a plot at these allotments. You will be able to quickly nip to your unit and grab all your equipment and then head over to your plot. 

Safe and secure storage 

We know that many allotments come with communal sheds where you can keep your equipment but with so many people coming and going each day, you could have worries about how safe your equipment is – with our self storage Mitcham, we have state of the art alarms on every unit, including smoke and fire detectors. And we have 24/7 CCTV around the entire facility so you can rest assured that your equipment is safe.
