At Smart Storage, we offer a wide range of options suitable for those seeking business storage, domestic storage and student storage, so you can rest assured that you’ll always find what you need with us. However, because there are many different types of self-storage company, it can be daunting and hard to know which one is right for you.

In this article, we’re taking a look at the different options that Smart Storage has at your disposal, which will help you to make your decision.

Unit Sizes

Figuring out the right sized unit for your storage requirements is important, since this will help you to save money. If you rent more space than you need, you’re spending money on something you won’t use. Getting a unit that is too small is also wasteful, so you’ll want to strike the right balance.

And, if you’re a business, you also need to think about whether you’re looking to grow your business or downsize it, which will affect the unit you get.

Our storage space calculator can help with all this. Finding out the amount of space you need has never been easier, and you can be confident that you’ll also benefit from a variety of unit sizes. If you need a small locker, we’ve got you covered; if you want to store the contents of a 5-bedroom house, we have the space.

And you can get a quote and book your unit easily as well; if you want, you can also contact the Smart Storage team to learn more about our units.

Short or Long-Term Storage

Another thing to keep in mind is the amount of time you need to rent a unit for. If you’re moving to a new house, for example, you probably only need short-term storage – however, if you’re running a business and use the units to keep inventory, it’s likely you need long-term storage.

So, consider how long you’ll be storing your belongings before committing to a decision. Storing with a facility that offers flexible contracts, like Smart Storage, will make your life easier if your circumstances change and if you want to upgrade or downsize.

Normal’ Units Vs Drive-Up Units

We also offer different types of units – the usual indoor units and drive-up units that are perfect for both domestic and business storage. It’s also a very convenient way of storing your possessions, because it allows you to simply drive up to the unit, add or remove items, and drive away. No need to speak to anyone either.

You can access our drive-up units 24/7, so your business doesn’t have to wait until morning; the same goes for the storage of household items. If you’re in a rush, you can be confident that your possessions will be available at the drop of a hat. In addition, we also provide an onsite forklift truck for heavy and bulky items, which means these units are perfect for trade storage, vehicle and plant machinery, market traders, and more.

When it comes to our indoor units, we offer a large range of flexible storage space that you can rent for as little as two weeks – or for however long you require. With no reservation fee, an alarm on all units and a 24-hour security system, it’s no wonder our units are a popular option.

You can purchase boxes and packaging from us as well, as we’re a one-stop-shop for all your storage needs.

Competitively-Priced Storage

Very cheap storage sounds good in theory, but it’s not always the right decision. Smart Storage offers competitive prices at all of our store locations and, included in the price, is an array of features that you may not get elsewhere – especially if you go with a cheap facility without considering amenities and other benefits. Our stores are clean as well, something that is always important but even more so in the current circumstances.

Our clients can benefit from amazing offers too, including a 50% off introductory offer that will halve your storage costs for the first 8 weeks. It’s important that you choose a storage facility you can trust, so we have no hidden extras or surprise fees either. What you see is what you get.

Open for Essential Access

We’re open for essential access, as we understand that some of our clients will be providing key services and supplies. While our receptions are unmanned at the moment, we have posters in the stores that will direct you to the right places and which will also provide the necessary instructions once you’re there.

Our security remains top notch. We ensure the safety of your possessions with our state-of-the-art security systems and CCTV, so you have peace of mind that your belongings are safe and sound. You have a unique pin number to enter your unit, which is also alarmed, and we can monitor which pins have been activated, so we’ll be made immediately aware which customers are in the store.
