How Self-Storage Can Help You Solve Your Space Problem

Too much stuff, and not enough space to put it in. Whether you're a small business trying to manage inventory, a collector looking for somewhere to keep your treasures safe or a community group whose equipment has outgrown its members' homes, it's a familiar problem. If you're looking for a way to manage your space more effectively, hiring storage facilities might be the right choice for you. 

Home items

When most people think of self-storage, they think of storing our belongings during a move or using a storage unit to house extra belongings after moving to a smaller home. Storage facilities are ideal for this purpose because of the flexibility they offer; you can store your items for as long as you need to without having to invest in a permanent expansion of your space. 

Business storage

However, home moves aren't the only time a secure storage space can come in handy. An increasing number of small businesses operate without a permanent business location, whether because they mainly sell online or because they use temporary stands at markets, craft fairs and other events. If that describes your business, you'll know that this saves on overhead but can cause some storage headaches as inventory and supplies start to crowd you out of your home. Storage units solve this problem by giving you a secure, affordable space that you can access whenever you need to. 

Community groups

Volunteering for a community organisation such as a club, theatre group or sporting team is very rewarding, but you can sometimes find yourself acting as a storage service for the group's equipment. This can lead to delays when roles within the group change, and it may even discourage people from volunteering if they feel they don't have the space needed to store bulky items like costume chests or goals. Instead of relying on volunteers to provide their own storage, consider a self-storage space to house your group's equipment. 


Just like other community groups, bands can sometimes struggle to find a space to store their valuable instruments, equipment and merchandise. A self-storage unit provides a safe place to keep all of it. As an added bonus, some storage facilities can double as rehearsal spaces in a pinch; just check with the centre's manager before you break into song. 

Whether you're being crowded out by your own belongings, business inventory or anything else, a self-storage facility like Storage Choice can help you take some of the pressure off. You'll have more room to move as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing your items are safe and secure.
