Realising you are in need of some extra storage, it’s a bit of a minefield knowing where to begin.
You may ask yourself: what should you be looking for? What size unit do you actually need? What is the contract length? Will all your belongings be safe? Can you work from your unit?
So many questions can come up and it can be difficult to know where to start. Here are some of our top tips for using storage to rent in Leighton Buzzard.
Know exactly what you want to store
Before you even begin looking into which self storage company to use, have a detailed list of everything you want to store in your unit. This will help you to have an idea of how much space you need.
Look for flexibility
When looking at different self storage companies, always look for flexible rental agreements. With our storage to rent in Leighton Buzzard, we only offer flexible rental agreements and this has proven to be a great asset to many of our customers.
Flexible rental agreements mean that you are not trapped in a long-term contract. You can leave your unit earlier than stated, change your unit or add on extra storage for a period of time. This has been a great help to many of our business customers as it means they don’t have to worry if their situation changes.
Pick a facility in a convenient location
A convenient location is a big part of self storage as you do not want to be driving for miles to get to your belongings if you realise you need something. People using self storage for business particularly need to be picking a facility that is in a convenient location for them because they will, most likely, need to go there every single day.
Our storage to rent in Leighton Buzzard is just a 4 minute drive from the town centre. We always pick a location which is in a perfect spot for the local community.
Visit the store beforehand
Once you have a store in mind, pop into the store and have a look around. Have a chat with the staff and ask them to show you the unit you were thinking of getting.
Our Leighton Buzzard team is always happy to show you around and answer any questions you have.
Choose the right size unit
Even if you go to the store with a unit in mind, talk to the staff about it first. This is because they are experts in storage, and will guide you to the perfect unit. If you are using your unit for your business, make sure to take into account you being and working within it. This will include space to pack orders and do inventory.
And don’t be afraid to ask to see multiple units because our staff are happy to help! They will show you around as much as you need before you feel ready to move forward.
Pack your boxes properly
Once you have your facility and unit picked, make sure to pack your boxes properly, if you are using boxes to store.
Wrap up delicate items in bubble wrap and don’t make your boxes too heavy. You want to be able to move your boxes without hurting yourself. If you have a box which ends up with some unused space, add loosefill as this will stop anything within the box moving and getting damaged.
This may seem a little obvious but make sure you have every single box and/or bag labelled. This will make your life so much easier and save you so much time and effort when it comes to removing or needing items from your unit.
Add shelving for extra space
If you are using your unit for your business stock it is a really good idea to add shelving or racking. This will allow you to access your stock so much more easily.
And make sure to put your best sellers in a spot you can get to easily!
