Who uses Long-Term Self Storage?
There are quite a few reasons why people decide to use long-term self storage. They vary from individuals travelling abroad and renting their properties out whilst they’re away to people downsizing and using self storage as a ‘virtual extension’ to their home.
It’s not just domestic users who can benefit from long-term self storage. Businesses also find long-term commercial storage a cost-effective, practical solution for storing stock, equipment and archive files.
Here are a few examples of how we help home and business customers with their long-term storage requirements.
Working or Travelling Abroad?
Being offered the opportunity to work abroad is naturally one of ‘life’s big decisions’. Irrespective of whether it is a temporary posting or a more permanent proposition, long-term self storage can provide a lifeline.
You may decide that you want to sell your property or rent it out while you are away. Either way, long-term self storage provides an ideal solution. It removes the necessity for any hasty decisions having to be made.
In your absence, you can authorise someone in the UK to have access to your room, should you want to check or retrieve your goods at any time.
Should your position become permanent and you decide that you would like your goods shipped abroad, then we can oversee the collection from the shippers. This means that you don’t have the inconvenience of having to make a trip back to the UK if you don’t want to. We can even make recommendations for shippers whom customers have successfully used in the past.
Of course, the reason for going abroad might not be to do with work. We store for many customers who want to go travelling on a long-term basis. Some decide to rent their homes out in the interim period. Removing personal belongings and putting them into storage can be a perfect solution from both a space and security perspective.
If you are dreaming of travelling the world, or taking a well-earned sabbatical, using long-term self storage could be a great option.
Downsizing But Still Need Space?
If the children have flown the nest and you’re thinking of downsizing but concerned about storage space, then don’t be!
By using self storage on a long-term basis, you get the best of both worlds. A smaller property to buy and maintain but without having to part with cherished possessions.
Over time, you may decide to part with some items and reduce the size of your self storage room. With Extra Room Self Storage this isn’t a problem. You have the flexibility to reduce, increase, or move out of your storage unit at any time.
Looking for Long-Term Business Storage?
With office rental space and business premises being at a premium in many areas, it is not surprising that many companies are reaping the benefits of using self storage on a long-term basis.
Our customers have the reassurance that their valuable stock, equipment, or archives are being stored in a secure, humidity-controlled environment.
It allows you to maximise the use of your office space or business premises more effectively while being a flexible service because units can be upsized or downsized as required. At Extra Room Self Storage, we can also accept deliveries on your behalf.
If companies want to make cost savings by downsizing their premises, then long-term self storage for business could certainly be the answer.

Go That Extra Mile For a Better Service at a Better Price
Your storage provider doesn’t have to be local for long-term storage. This is especially true if you are going abroad and don’t need frequent access to your things.
It’s advisable to choose a self storage company that has the best reputation and facilities, especially where security is concerned. This may mean going further afield.
Price will also have a big influence, but the decision should never be driven by price alone. You need to trust the storage provider with the responsibility of safeguarding your things.
