What’s the Difference Between Self Storage and Container Storage?

Posted on December 11, 2019 by Peter Donaldson
Storage Dorset

Storage is an excellent way to keep your possessions or work items safe without causing you to make any expensive security upgrades. And fortunately for people in Dorset, Instore has the best storage options on offer in the county and surrounding areas. But how do you know which option is better for you? And what’s the difference between self storage and container storage?

Is Self Storage the Right Choice for Me?

This is a tricky question because we all have different needs for storage. The area we tend to cover first is what sort of access requirements will you have and how long do you want to store for. For people or businesses who need regular access, we will recommend our self storage service. That’s because you can access your unit as much as you need to during our business hours.

Additionally, some people might need storage for a more temporary period, and this suits the self storage package more. And it’s also possible to upgrade or downsize your storage unit’s size if your circumstances change. Instore is all about flexibility, and we will work with you to try and accommodate any amendments to your storage package.

Self storage is also an innovative option for small businesses and start-up enterprises in Dorset. It’s possible to use a storage unit to run a company which is a growing trend in the SME business world. That’s because storage units are much cheaper than renting a commercial space. And you don’t have a long lease to worry about.

The Pros and Cons of Container Storage –

One of the benefits of using container storage units is the cost. It’s a more affordable storage option, with prices starting at as little as £14 per week. You won’t find storage rates lower than this, and you’ll always get a superior level of customer service at Instore.

Furthermore, you can fit a surprising number of items into your container storage unit. With some smart placement, it’s possible to store an apartment’s worth of appliances and furniture into a fifty-foot unit. And Instore has various storage unit sizes available.

The only drawback when considering container storage is the access or lack thereof. Due to the nature of container storage, the units are sealed and often stacked on top of each other. The consequence of this is a limitation on how often you can access your storage unit. And additional charges might apply for accessing several times within a specific time period.

We work with hundreds of domestic and business customers monthly in Dorset, catering for just about every storage situation you can think of.
