How to Choose the Right Type Of Storage for you

Updated: May 15

Finding the perfect storage solution for you:

  • Declutter ruthlessly: Minimise what you store to save money on unit size.

  • Match your needs to the space: Business items require more space than seasonal keepsakes.

  • Measure and plan for airflow:  Measure belongings and factor in extra space for ventilation and easy access.

  • Consider add-on services: Explore options like packing help or climate control if needed.

  • Location is key: Choose storage service that can deliver your belongings when you need them. When it comes to storing your belongings effectively, knowing your options is key. As a leading removals and storage company in London, we're here to guide you through the various types of storage solutions available. Whether you're downsizing, renovating, or simply in need of extra space, and whether you want to handle everything yourself or get the professionals to do it, there's a storage option that's just right for you.

1. Traditional Self-Storage Units

These units are a popular choice for those who prefer a do-it-yourself approach. You rent a unit, transport your items, and manage them on your own. Self-storage units come in a range of sizes, from small lockers to large rooms, making them suitable for a variety of needs. This option is ideal if you need regular access to your items.

But beware - its easy to damage your belongings if you haven't packed them safely, or you store your items incorrectly.

2. Serviced Storage through Removals Companies

For a more hands-off experience, serviced storage is your go-to option. This comprehensive solution includes packing, transporting, and storing your belongings safely and securely. As a family-run company with affordable rates and award-winning service, we handle the entire process, ensuring your items are safely packed, transported, and stored. It's a convenient choice for those with busy schedules or those who prefer leaving it to the professionals. This option is best for complex house moves or renovation projects but you may not always get 'instant' access to your items.

3. Climate-Controlled Units

If you're storing items sensitive to temperature and humidity, like wooden furniture, musical instruments, or electronics, climate-controlled storage is essential. These units maintain a consistent environment, protecting your belongings from extreme temperatures and dampness. It's a slightly pricier option but crucial for preserving the integrity of certain items. You most cases you can manage the storage yourself or use a removal company like us at Denix Moving.

4. Drive-Up Self-Storage

Drive-up storage units offer the convenience of loading and unloading your items directly from your vehicle. These ground-level units are particularly beneficial for storing large, heavy items or if you require frequent, easy access to your belongings. It's like having an extra garage at your disposal.

5. Various Sizes of Units

Storage needs vary greatly, and so do storage unit sizes. Units can range from small 5'x5' spaces, perfect for boxes and small furniture, to large 10'x30' units that can store the contents of a full house. Understanding the volume of items you need to store is critical in selecting the right size, ensuring you're not paying for unused space.
