10 reasons to consider self-storage in Bath

There are many reasons why people use our self-storage in Bath for their belongings. Many are increasingly turning to self-storage facilities as their demand for more space has grown and they have run out of space in our homes and offices, but there are plenty more reasons why self-storage is incredibly useful. 

If you live in the area, there are many reasons why getting a unit for self-storage in Bath, UK is a good idea.

1. To store the things that you don’t use often

We all know this very well – the longer you live somewhere, the more things you accumulate. Your home will gradually fill up with all sorts of objects and old furniture, and if you are not willing or able to sell or throw away your belongings, renting self-storage is the ideal option.

If you don’t have enough space at home or a basement that you can use, in a self-storage unit, your belongings will be protected at all times. And the best part is that there are differently sized units so you don’t have to worry about paying for space that you won’t use.

2. For travelling

Some occupations necessitate frequent travel. There is no need to bring all of your stuff with you if you spend your time in the same two or three destinations every month. You can put most of your clothes, shoes, and other belongings in a self-storage facility and travel light. You will avoid having to pack the same things often and having to send boxes or purchase additional luggage space on flights, saving you money.

Similarly, if you are planning a long trip, you might not want to pay for your rent during those months. Even if you manage to sublet your room or rent your flat while you are gone, you will need to leave your belongings in a place in which they are secure. A self-storage unit is perfect in that case.

3. For renovations

Are you thinking about renovating your home? Whether you just need to paint your house in Bath or you’re adding another storey, think about the furniture and belongings that you should put away during the process. 

With a storage unit, you can move all of your furniture, carpets, and anything else that the contractors could damage. This way, you’ll have more room in your house, save money on furniture repairs or replacements, and won’t have to worry about any broken or damaged furniture. Not to mention how much easier it will be to clean up when everything is done!

4. Moving to a smaller house

If you have decided to downsize, you might need to store some things until you decide what to do with them at a later date. The same happens with home consolidations – if you and your partner both owned your own houses and are now moving in together, you will need to have a place to store your belongings if you are going to rent or sell one of the properties.

5. To store your loved ones’ belongings 

When a family member passes away, you will need to go through their house to sell or rent it. With such a big amount of stuff to organise, it might be wise to put their belongings into storage and process everything at a later date, when you feel stronger emotionally.

6. If you are moving abroad

House moves are inconvenient, but when they are to a new country, a slew of issues can develop. It’s possible that your boxes arrive before you, or that there could be a problem with the property you just rented/purchased. Having a location where you can store all of your belongings without having to worry about them is the best backup plan. Leaving your belongings in a storage container in Bath while you settle into your new home will help things go smoothly.

7. Growing families

Do you have kids? If you do, you know that you usually have to make place for a lot of new items. As your kids grow older, you will need to start thinking about what to do with all the clothes, toys, prams and cribs and everything else. Of course, selling is always an option, but if you want to keep some things for sentimental reasons or to potentially use them again in the future if you are planning to have another baby, a storage unit is your solution. 

Similarly, once your children have graduated from high school and are off to college, you might want to make full use of your home’s space. Simply hire a self-storage unit and organise your children’s belongings there.

8. Space for your hobbies 

If you enjoy cycling, canoeing, or skiing, a storage unit is an ideal location for you to keep all of your sporting gear. Your seasonal athletic equipment will be preserved in better shape than if you were to keep it in a humid garage.

Similarly, if you have any hobbies that require equipment and your family is not very keen on you having everything in the house, a self-storage unit can be your best option.

9. Seasonal storage

If you have a lot of garden furniture, an inflatable pool, and lots of other stuff for the warm weather, you’ll need somewhere to store it during the winter. So where should you put everything? 

This is where a self-storage unit might come in helpful. You don’t need to store everything in a dusty garage and risk damaging all your belongings before the next summer comes. Instead, you can store your belongings in the unit when the rains begin, then get them back at the start of summer. 

Because you won’t be using any of your summer stuff for months, placing them all in a self-storage unit frees up some room in the garage while also protecting your outdoor equipment. Because self-storage units are well-ventilated, your cushions and wood furniture will be free of mould and bug infestations.

10. Business storage

Do you own a business in Bath or the surrounding area? If your business is growing, having self-storage in Bath will keep your things organised. Especially at a time in which we don’t know whether having an office to go to every day makes sense, having a self-storage unit will give you the flexibility you need if you prefer to work from home.
