When you collect art you want to have a storage facility that will keep it fully protected. Our self-storage Newbury is an excellent solution.
Art collecting can be a hobby but for many people with a love of art, they take art collecting very seriously and it becomes more like a job. The reason for this is the amount of work which goes into bringing together a good art collection.
What you need to become an art collector
Art collecting as a job is an entrepreneurial endeavour and because of this, there are not any specific education requirements. A knowledge of art history and an appreciation for art techniques can be hugely beneficial as it helps you to develop the talent of finding pieces which have investment potential.
Other skills which will be beneficial will be networking, negotiation and sales skills.
Networking is crucial in order to find new pieces to buy and people in which to sell parts of their current collection. Negotiation and sales skills are needed in order to make it a viable and financially rewarding. Even if you are collecting for yourself and your own collection, it is crucial that you make sales periodically to make a profit on their investment.
Along with the large amount of networking involved, there is also the need to find a storage space as, like any investment, the value of artworks will increase over time. You need a space in which you know your art collection will be clean, dry and completely safe and secure.
If you are already on your way as an art collector and have a growing collection of artwork waiting on a buyer, our self storage Newbury will have a storage space that will be the perfect place to store it.
Variety of units to choose from with our self-storage Newbury
Within our Newbury facility, we have storage units which range from 10 sq ft to 840 sq ft. This variety of sizing will mean that no matter how big your collection is currently or how big it gets, we will have a unit that works and grows with you.
Our storage units will ensure your artwork will be kept clean, dry and secure. So you never have to worry about your collection and can focus on going out to source more pieces to add to it.
Our self storage Newbury is the ideal solution for you to grow your artwork collection and if you exhibit pieces you can easily swap them in and out of your storage unit with ease, this way there’s no end to the number of pieces you can collect, as we can always upgrade your storage unit size for you as you grow your collection.

Your unit is able to grow with your collections due to our flexible rental contracts. With our contracts you are never trapped within a long term contract. All our contracts are short term and flexible.
The flexibility means that if your art collection significantly grows and you need a bigger unit, the Newbury team will work to make this happen, as quickly as possible.
The flexibility also works for you if you decide that you no longer need your unit. You are free to leave before your contract ends. We just need 14 days notice and you will be refunded for any days that you don’t use.
