Wanderlust can strike at any time of life. And in a world that’s smaller than ever, international travel has become a lifestyle choice – even a necessity – for many people.
But what if you have more than troubles to pack up in your old kit bag?
Whether you’re embarking on a gap year adventure, making a career move or simply travelling with your family – a household and personal storage unit offers the perfect solution for items you need to store securely while you’re away.
Who Is Self Storage For?
Household and personal storage units are useful for anyone with precious items they want to store securely. They are popular with:
- Armed forces personnel stationed overseas
- Gap-year students looking for storage
- Contractors taking on work abroad
- Those with long-term travel plans
- People taking a sabbatical
Spend Less On Storage, More On Travel
Using household and self storage is significantly more cost effective than keeping up payments on a rental property while you’re abroad.
It makes practical sense, too. An empty house is more vulnerable to break-ins and accidental damage such as flooding from a burst pipe or electrical fires. Choosing to leave personal items with friends or family could save you money, but you run the risk of an awkward conversation should your belongings become lost, stolen or damaged in their care.
Purpose built storage units are monitored around the clock and benefit from 24 hour CCTV, so you can enjoy your travels safe in the knowledge that your most valued possessions are safe and secure.
Renting Your Property While You’re Away
Travel can be costly, even if you’re moving abroad for work. You’ll still have a home to run and possibly a mortgage to pay back home.
If you own a property it can make sense to move in rental tenants while you’re away. By renting your home it will supplement your income rather than becoming a drain on your resources. However, you possibly don’t want to leave all of your personal belongings in the house. If packing up your life fills you with dread, don’t worry – our highly-trained team are on hand to offer expert advice on everything from which room size you’ll need to the most practical removal options and transport for you.
