Do you need a secure storage warehouse in Liverpool? There are many reasons why a secure storage facility is useful, so if this is what you’re looking for, take a look below and discover if you are in need of services like this.
In many scenarios, it makes practical and financial sense to downsize to a smaller home. An example of this may be when the children become adults and leave home the house may feel too big if the parents or parent remain the only permanent residents. However, this can mean that there is an issue with storing all the family possessions in a smaller home. If you don’t want to get rid of financial or sentimental value items that are not regularly used, the solution is to place them in a storage warehouse until needed.
In today’s uncertain stock market, many people prefer to invest in artworks, antiquarian books, precious coins, antiques, jewellery and other high-value items. Whilst these can be stored at home, it’s better to use a storage warehouse which protects valuables with much higher security standards than most homes.
People often have sensitive private or business documents that they don’t want work colleagues or even family members to see. A storage facility will take care of documents. There will be strict access controls so that only authorised personnel can see the documents.
Valuable fragile items including artwork and antiques can be at risk in the home. Extreme temperatures and high humidity can damage them. Flood damage can ruin antique objects and artwork. Family heirlooms and investments in high-value items are better off in a storage warehouse that is protected from extreme weather.
It is said that keeping a home clean and tidy improves mental well-being. As part of the tidying process, it’s good to declutter by getting rid of things that are not frequently needed. However, some items may have sentimental value. Instead of getting rid of them entirely, you can instead store them in a storage warehouse. If you are not sure about keeping a belonging, store it securely whilst you take your time making your mind up about whether to hang on to it or not.
Businesses can often save money by buying goods in bulk but don’t have the room to store excessive stock. A storage warehouse can provide more storage space. It’s also a good solution for temporary storage of seasonal stock, such as Christmas items or summer goods that are only required for short periods.
Finding the right storage solution
If you realise that you could use the facilities of a storage warehouse in Liverpool, the next question is, where is the best one? At Merseyside Movers & Storers, we offer specialist storage solutions in the Merseyside and Liverpool area. A top-quality storage solution will often have these qualities.
We’ll match the size of storage space to the volume of the items that you need to store, so that you are not paying for space that you are not using. According to the Self Storage Association, the average storage space requirement is 69 sq ft. You don’t want to be paying for 150 sq ft unless your storage needs are well above average.
Some storage companies have introductory deals where, for instance, the first month is half price then rises steeply after that. Unless you read the small print on the contract, you may not realise that the price increases after a short introductory period. Merseyside Movers & Storers believes in transparent quotes where you know exactly how much you are paying for the required storage length – and without hidden charges.
Condition of storage facility
You can tell a lot about a storage warehouse by the condition of the building. If it looks in bad repair with crumbling brickwork and peeling paint, it is unlikely to be very secure and could be damp. At Merseyside Movers & Storers, we have a well-maintained facility where goods are securely and safely stored.
Large storage facilities often lack a personal touch due to their high number of employees and large staff turnover rate. We have a small friendly experienced team that gets to know you and your storage requirements.
If you are storing valuable items, it’s worth insuring them. Some storage companies may make a commission by arranging insurance deals for their clients which gives them no incentive to find a reasonably priced quote. Merseyside Movers & Storers will provide full insurance at a reasonable cost.
