    The main differences between container storage and self-storage relate to access, size, cost and how you can load and unload items.
    Self-storage units are ideal for personal storage and business storage. It’s usually self-access only, 24/7, and the units are housed indoors within a property. There are bays to load and unload, but these may be a distance from the units, meaning a short walk or the use of a goods lift to access your self-storage unit.
    Container storage is ideal for larger amounts of personal and business storage, particularly light-industrial storage. As containers are stored in a secure compound or warehouse, access may be restricted to specific times. There is vehicle access, meaning you can drive up close to the container, making loading and unloading heavy items much more straightforward.

    The average price of storage in the UK can vary, depending on a number of factors such as the type of storage facility, size, location, length of use, and even the value of your goods.

    No. Storage units are not approved for occupancy and cannot be used as an office. Not only is this for insurance reasons, but most storage units will not have plug sockets, natural lighting or Wi-Fi, making them inhabitable. You, therefore, cannot legally register a self-storage unit as a business location, nor can you or your employees work from it as an official office space.

    Whether it’s for personal or commercial use, you can pretty store what you want or need in a storage facility. The most common types of things people store are household or office items like furniture and equipment. Some businesses will also store documents and stock if needed.
    There is a list of prohibited items that you cannot store in a storage facility. The most common prohibited items are money and securities, illegal items like counterfeit good, chemicals and hazardous materials, firearms and weapons, combustibles and flammable materials, and animals. Finally human beings cannot use a storage facility as a dwelling or place of work.

    When it comes to self-storage, there are a few different types from which to choose. The type of self-storage you choose will depend on what you’re storing, how much storage space you need, what kind of access you need and when you need access.

    Self-access storage is ideal for storing personal belongings or household furniture and for businesses wanting to rent light commercial storage – for business equipment, tools, and documents.

    Container storage is ideal for larger personal belongings like household items and commercial storage like equipment, tools and stock. These secure shipping containers provide excellent drive-up access and are held in a compound surrounded by security features like fencing or CCTV.

    Garage lockups are for businesses in need of much larger space. These are external lockups with enhanced security and accessibility for vehicles, ideal for commercial businesses looking to store and gain easy access to equipment and stock.
