When it comes to storing items in a self storage unit, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind. First and foremost, you should always check with your storage facility to see what items they do and do not allow. This is because different facilities have different policies when it comes to what can and cannot be stored on their property. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions about storing any particular item at our facility.

That being said there are a few items that are a perfect use case for storing in a self storage unit.



Furniture during a move

There are many reasons why you might want to store furniture during a house move. Maybe you don’t have enough space in your new home for all of your furniture, or maybe you need to wait until your new home is ready before you can move in. Whatever the reason, storing your furniture can be a great way to make the moving process a little bit easier.

When packed correctly, you will be surprised at just how much you can get into a unit. For example, the contents of a 2 bedroom flat can often fit into a 100 sq ft unit!


business files

Business documents

Are you downsizing your office and don’t have room to keep all of your files? Maybe you’re starting a new business and need to keep some records off-site until you get your own office. Or maybe you just need to free up some space in your home or office for other purposes.

Whatever the reason, self storage is a great option for storing business documents. It’s affordable, convenient, and secure, and it gives you the flexibility to access your documents whenever you need them. Plus, if you choose a climate-controlled unit, you can rest assured that your documents will be safe and protected from the elements.



Maybe you’re a collector and have accumulated items over the years, or maybe you’ve just been holding on to artwork for sentimental reasons. Whatever the case may be, a self-storage unit can be a safe place to ensure the items are protected from accidental damage and kept in good condition.

While you could use your garage or loft, those spaces aren’t always the ideal environment for artwork, this is where a storage unit can help.



If you’ve recently had a death in the family you might have inherited some items that you don’t have space for yet. This could be something you think would be perfect for your next house, or for your children when they get a place for themselves.

It could also be that the family have inherited a lot of items that need to be stored before they are handed out to their respective new owners. It’s always stressful dealing with a death in the family, and anything that can reduce this stress can be a blessing.


wreathSeasonal Items

There are many things you’ll own that will only be used at one time of year and then be hidden away for the rest of it, such as christmas or halloween decorations, gardening equipment a BBQ etc.

Or maybe you just like to switch your wardrobe up and want to put your winter clothes away until next year.

No matter the reason, self storage is a great option for storing seasonal items. You can choose a unit that’s the right size for your needs, and you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe and secure. Plus, if you ever need to access your items during the off-season, you can always do so with ease.




Perhaps you have a large wine collection and don’t have enough space in your home to store it all. Maybe you’re going on vacation and don’t want your wine collection to be vulnerable to theft or damage. Or maybe you’re starting a wine business and need a place to store your inventory. Whatever the reason, self storage is a great option for storing wine. It’s safe, secure, and affordable, and it gives you the peace of mind knowing that your wine is in good hands.


With all that being said, there are some general things that you should keep in mind when storing items in a self storage unit. For example, you should never store anything flammable or combustible in your unit, as this could pose a safety hazard. Additionally, you should avoid storing any hazardous materials in your unit, as these could also be dangerous.

Some other things that you should avoid storing in your self storage unit include food items (which can attract pests), live animals, plants, and any item that is perishable.

Ultimately, it is important to check with your storage facility to see what their policies are when it comes to what can and cannot be stored on their property. This will help ensure that you are storing your items in a safe and secure manner.
