When looking to rent storage, you will come across two types of contract – flexible and fixed term. But is one better than the other? This is entirely dependent on what you need your storage facility for but Cinch Storage offers their storage rooms in Brighton on flexible contracts as we feel these work best for our clients.
Here is what you will be signing up for with each type of contract.
Fixed term contracts: Who are they good for?
Fixed terms contracts within storage work by choosing a storage space and then giving the time period you want this space for – a start date and an end date. You will be fixed to that storage space until the end date. They can often come with a large price tag and do not allow for any changes or for you to leave your contract early.
They could be the perfect fit if you own a well established business and you know, for definite, how much space you need. Such as, if you need the storage for equipment instead of stock – you will know the size of all your equipment so you will be able to choose a unit that fits it all.
