Perhaps you’ve just got too many items cluttering up your home. Maybe you need a secure storage space for valuable tools or even motorcycles and push bikes. Or, it could be that you have sentimental belongings that you don’t need on a daily basis, but you don’t want to throw away either.
At-home storage containers help you find a home for all your important belongings. When you buy storage pods or rent a container for storage, you’ll benefit from:
You could build a shed instead, but that will leave you vulnerable to storms, break-ins and pests. At-home storage containers better protect your belongings.
And unlike rented self-storage units at a facility, you’ll have easy access to your goods at all times. If you need access to something on a Sunday, you can just walk through your backyard, open the secure lock on your storage container and grab it. You won’t have to wait until Monday morning or go out of your way to drive to a storage facility.
Storage containers can be as small as 8ft or as large as 40ft. The most common sizes for at-home storage are 8ft and 10ft, but depending on your needs and garden space, you could instead opt for a 20ft container.
If you don’t know how much space you need, our guide to choosing the right shipping container size will walk you through making that decision.
As a general rule, if you decide to rent a container for storage, you should opt for a storage container size that meets your current needs and allows you to safely access all your goods. Don’t forget to allow space for packaging and shelf units.
If, however, you want to buy storage pods, you’ll need to consider your long-term usage. It might be better to buy slightly larger at-home storage containers so that you don’t have to sell and then buy your storage pods again.
Choosing whether to rent or purchase your storage container can be challenging, especially if you’re unsure about how long you’ll need the extra storage.
Should you decide to buy storage pods, you’ll benefit from no ongoing rental fees and an asset that you can sell on in the future. However, the initial cost can be pricey, plus you’ll have to pay for any maintenance. (Fortunately, if you’re just keeping your container in your garden or patio, wear and tear should be minimal.)
On the other hand, if you rent a container for storage over a short period of time, it could work out much cheaper. You won’t have to pay maintenance fees, and you’ll be able to return your at-home storage containers once you’re done with them.
The good news is that whether you decide to buy or hire, there are plenty of affordable options available to you.
If you decide to rent a container for storage, the process is simple. First, identify what you need. Work out your preferred container size and if you want any additional features, such as shelving or refrigeration.
Then, get in touch with us at CBOX Containers to discuss whether you need a traditional short-term rental, long-term rental or finance lease. Short-term rentals of at-home storage containers normally last for less than a year, while long-term rentals can be 3–5 years long. With a finance lease, you’ll have the right to buy the container at the end of your rental period
We’ll then arrange transport for your storage container, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
If you prefer to buy shipping containers instead of renting, reach out for a quote. We’ll talk you through the best options for your needs, from the size and features to whether you should buy new or second-hand.
