Self-storage is short for “Self-Service Storage.” This term means that rather than hiring a company to collect your belongings and store them at their facilities, whilst paying them to rent a self-storage unit, instead you rent a self-storage unit from a storage company and you take care of moving in yourself, which makes the price cheaper overall. With a lot of storage companies, you need to organise moving your belongings there yourself. Whereas with us here at Storage Manchester, we do offer a FREE collection and removals service. We offer free collections and removals for the entire Manchester area if you are interested in storing with us. Our team of expert removal staff does all the heavy lifting for you from loading your items into our van and filling up your new storage unit. If it is needed, we can also arrange a packing service to help aid your move, relocation, or storage in Manchester.

Different Types of Self-Storage Units That Are Available

There tend to be a few different types of storage units that are available (Please note that not all of these are available at Storage Manchester). Here are some of the storage units that you can rent at different storage companies around Manchester:

1. Temporary On-Site Storage Units

These storage units are ones that you can get delivered to your house temporarily. These are great if you are having house renovations completed. Having items out of the way whilst you are completing house renovations will make things so much easier and you will not regret it.

2. Off-Site Self-Storage Units

This is what we have here at Storage Manchester, this is where you store your belongings at a storage company and rent a unit for however long you need it. If you choose to store with Storage Manchester, we will offer you 50% off your first ten weeks of storage. We pride ourselves on being the cheapest storage company in Manchester which is why we regularly review our storage prices to ensure that we are the cheapest in all of Manchester.

3. Climate-Controlled Storage

Most storage companies do tend to offer this option to their tenants. Depending on where you are storing, climate control may be one of the most important aspects that you may need when it comes to renting a storage unit. Climate-controlled units are perfect if you need to store furniture or antiques. Controlling the climate within your storage unit can help to prevent moisture build-up, which can ruin your items. The main point of a climate-controlled unit is to prevent mould.

4. Business Storage

Self-storage is perfect for businesses of all types of sizes. They are great for businesses, especially if you have limited space at your workplace. It is sometimes easier to rent a self-storage unit to help you to manage and operate your business.

5. Student Storage

Self-storage is perfect for students. They prevent you from taking up space in your parents’ house and then at the start of term, packing up their car to move back down to where your university accommodation is. Self-storage units are extremely affordable and make your life as a student that bit easier. Rent a storage unit for the summer, then you will not have to worry about attempting to move everything back and forth from your parents’ house

6. 24 Hour Storage

At Storage Manchester, we do have a few 24-hour access units. Our opening times are 9 am-7 pm, however, some people may need access to their units outside of these times which is why we provide an option of having 24-hour access. Having the option of having a 24/7 storage unit can give you peace of mind that no matter when you need your items, you will be able to access them.
