Common reasons why people use self-storage units

Whether you are a gardener, builder or painter and decorator, you might be concerned about leaving tools overnight in a vehicle. If you are renting a self-storage unit, you can leave your tools at the end of the day and pick them up the next day. They will be stored securely in a damp free environment – under lock and key.

Garden furniture and machinery

Summer gives way to autumn and the grass has been cut for the last time. If you discover your shed is too small for your garden furniture and equipment which you will not be using for a while, putting everything into a self-storage unit gives you more space to live with in the garage, as well as keeping your garden furniture in good shape.
