Serviced Storage vs. Self-Storage: What storage do I need?

Updated: May 15

Skip the packing!  Serviced storage takes the hassle out of moving by offering professional packing and management of your belongings. Unlike self-storage, where you do the legwork, serviced storage lets you focus on other things while experienced movers handle everything.

When it comes to storing your family’s belongings, or your business’ stock, the choices can be overwhelming. You can either go with the DIY route of self-storage, or opt for the full-service convenience of serviced storage.

Let's break down the key differences, benefits, and costs to help you make an informed decision about which storage type suits your needs best.

At Denix Moving, we’re proud to partner with Storage King to offer you the best full-service storage in London.

  • You prioritise security and trust in an award-winning storage service.

Choose Self-Storage If...

  • You enjoy hands-on involvement in the storage process and don't mind the legwork.

  • Flexibility in accessing your storage unit at any time is crucial.

  • You're comfortable with the packing process and have the time to do it yourself.

  • Cost is a significant factor, and you're willing to trade some convenience for a potentially lower price.
