Comparison With Other Solutions

Traditional Storage Options

Traditional storage options, such as renting additional commercial or residential space, can be significantly more expensive and come with longer-term commitments. Self-storage provides a more flexible and economical alternative. Move out when you want to.

On-Site Storage

Storing surplus items on-site, whether at home or in a business setting, often leads to clutter and inefficient use of space. Self-storage offers a dedicated space to keep items safe and accessible without encroaching on valuable living or working areas.

Professional Movers and Warehousing

Hiring professional movers and warehousing services can incur high costs and often involve complex logistics. Self-storage allows individuals to handle their storage needs independently at a fraction of the cost and you hire movers only for the move. Whereas, removal company charges add up and you often do not always have access to your belongings.

When shopping Around: Beware of Price Increases After Initial Contract Period

While discounted or cheap storage units may seem like a great deal initially, it is important to be aware that prices can rise steeply once the initial contract period expires. Many storage facilities offer attractive introductory rates to draw in customers, but these rates are often temporary. After the initial period, standard pricing is typically enforced, which can be significantly higher. Therefore, it is crucial to read the fine print and understand the long-term cost implications before committing to a storage unit, ensuring it remains a value-for-money solution over time.

Ask your storage company to explain what will happen after any introductory or discount period before signing up.

“Couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough (Northshore) - from the beginning they were so helpful and gave me a great deal.

You don’t need to look any further - go with these guys!"
