Head over to our advice section for checklists and information that will prove invaluable whilst you are planning your property move.
Whether you’re looking for short term storage while you’re between properties, or a longer term space to keep valuable items you don’t have room for in your home, we can find a storage solution for you.
We offer a range of different storage options:
If you need storage for your belongings (but don’t need access to them), conventional container storage is a good option. We’ll send a vehicle to your home and load your belongings into containers. They’ll be sealed and returned to our warehouse where they’ll be kept safe and secure in a clean, dry environment. Once you’re ready to have them back, all you need to do is let us know and we’ll get them transported to your new home.
The number of containers you’ll need depends on how much you have to store. Each container has a capacity of 250 cubic feet. As a rough guide, if you’ve got a one bedroom property you might need two or three containers. For a four bedroom house, you’ll probably need six or seven.
To give you an accurate estimate for storage costs, we usually send one of our estimators out to visit you to carry out a survey so we can make sure everything’s covered.
If you want easy access to your belongings, take a look at our sister company Plymouth Self Storage. You can choose the amount of storage space you need, and how long you want it for. Once you’ve got your storage space, you’ll have access to it six days a week with no extra charges.
De-cluttering or downsizing
Need some help presenting your property in its best light?
If you’re looking to sell your home, our de-cluttering service can help prospective buyers see its potential.
Many people find it easier to picture themselves living in a property if there’s less furniture and fewer personal possessions to distract them. By putting some of your things in storage, you can encourage potential buyers to imagine filling the space with their own belongings.
We can collect and store anything you’d like taken away while you’ve got people viewing your property, helping you increase your chances of making a sale. When you’re ready, we can bring everything back, or transport it to your new home.
We can also store furniture while you’re having work done on your property, or if you’re downsizing and need somewhere to keep family heirlooms or furniture which you intend to pass on to family members or sell in the future.
Commercial & office services
Space is at a premium in most offices, and sometimes it can be tricky finding enough space to keep everything. We offer a range of storage solutions for items that you don’t need to use all the time, including:
- Office tools and equipment
- Spare office furniture
- Business stock
- Exhibition equipment
Archive & document storage
All companies have to keep records and documents for a period of years, and many are legally required to keep copies of files in a different location to their main office.
Our archiving and records management service offers safe and secure storage away from your main place of work (which you can arrange access to as and when you need it).
This is a popular service for our commercial clients, as not only does it free up valuable office space, but it’s also a great off-site backup should the worst happen – like a fire or flood at your main office.
To make it easier to manage your records you can also buy standard sized archive cartons for paperwork and files from us.
