Self Storage Can Be a Traveller's Best Friend

Posted: 03 December 2019

Travel SK 3

Whether jet setting around the world, discovering Europe or exploring places closer to home, adventure and travel enthusiasts need to feel free to go wherever and whenever they want, and for as long as their budgets will allow. 

If travel is a dedicated part of your lifestyle and you’re planning that once-in-a-lifetime big bucket-list trip, or even if you’re an occasional traveller, self storage can be your best friend.  Why? You can simply pack up, store your stuff and you’re ready to go!

Self storage is not only great if you need a lock-up-and-go solution - it’s perfect for storing all the items that usually come with an adventurous and outdoors lifestyle. Equipment such as surfboards, mountain bikes, kayaks, paddles, kiteboards and camping gear can quickly clutter up your home, and so an increasing number of adventurers are looking towards self storage as a safe and secure solution to their space problems.

If you are going to use self storage while you travel, here are a few tips:

  • Choose a unit size that best suits your needs. With us, you can upsize or downsize at no extra cost
  • Pack your unit carefully by putting bulky and heavy items in first, stacking them from the back of the unit to the front
  • For ease of access and to maximise space, stack similarly-sized boxes and pack odd-shaped items last. Fragile goods should be protected with bubble wrap or tissue paper. The good news is that we sell such packaging supplies in all of our stores
  • Make an inventory of all your belongings and number all boxes on all sides for easy identification
  • Thoroughly dry any wet or damp items after a trip
  • Wipe all metal items with an agent that prevents rust
  • Use a high-quality padlock to lock your unit. We also sell these in our stores

Storage King stores are conveniently located across the UK and we offer a wide variety of unit sizes to best suit your needs. This means that you only pay for the space that you need!

For added peace of mind, each of our stores feature 24-hour CCTV and controlled electronic access. Each of our units are also individually alarmed*. 

Don’t worry about your stuff while you are out exploring. Visit your closest Storage King store or call us on 0800 0852 954 to see how we can help you with your storage needs.
