Self Storage versus Container Storage

MyStore Team - Wednesday, June 14, 2017

We are a modern nation that loves space and more importantly security. This has led to self-storage and container storage becoming valuable additions to our lives. But despite this, a large amount of people don’t really understand what storage is and how it can help improve their lives. Which begs the question, what is the difference between self-storage and container storage?

Outside storage units – such as shipping containers in a yard – are notoriously unreliable. They have a multitude of problems associated with them such as condensation, lax security systems and problems in adverse weather conditions. You are only really able to fill them to about 75% of their capacity if you want to ensure that your possessions don’t get ruined if you open the doors on a rainy day. They usually only come in two large sizes, meaning that they are far worse value for money than indoor self storage rooms.

Inside storage units are far superior to outdoor ones. Indoor units are well lit, have a reliable security system and are a safe dry option to store your belongings. With a wide variety of sizes available, you should always be able find a room at MyStore Self Storage that’s suitable for your needs.

Outdoor units can of course be a viable option if they have the correct facilities. If you want to store your classic car to restore it to its former glory, an outside unit is ideal. You just need to make sure that all the security systems are up-to-date, that your unit is within an enclosed area with a high fence and there is a PIN code security system in place.

We recommend several important factors that every customer should consider when choosing a storage room. If a storage facility doesn’t offer you these options then it is worth shopping around for one that does.

Great location, with ample parking

A wide range of room sizes

One inclusive price payable each month

Well lit, secure, dry and temperate

Multiple vehicle access so no waiting around

Shelving available to organise your files /boxes

No business rates and no utilities to pay

No minimum storage term

Your room individually alarmed

Collection & delivery service available

Cheaper long term rates available

MyStore Self Storage happily offers all of the above. You will be able to access your individually alarmed storage room 24 hours a day, every day of the week, so you can come and go as you please. Our well-lit rooms come in a range of sizes from 15 to 150 square foot. We have no minimum storage term and offer great rates for those looking for long-term storage.
