Where to store furniture short and long term
At Safestore we offer furniture storage solutions at our 120 stores nationwide, in units that can accommodate anything from a single bed to the entire contents of your home. Our secure, indoor units are competitively priced and you can rent space for just a week or for as long as you need.
You may need to store your furniture short term...
- During a house move, if there is a gap between selling and moving into your new home
- To store excess furniture after downsizing until you decide what to do with it in the longer term
- To keep furniture safe and out of the way whilst decorating, deep-cleaning carpets or renovating your home
- To minimise clutter and make your house appear more spacious whilst trying to sell your home.
Why you might need a long term storage unit for your furniture...
- To store items of furniture that do not fit into your current home but that you want to keep because they have sentimental or monetary value. (Our insurance will only cover the replacement value new for old for items but nothing for items which are irreplaceable or of personal sentimental value).
- If your house needs to be rented out (if you need to work abroad, for example) – you may wish to keep your furniture in storage to keep it clean and safe for when you return.
What size storage unit will I need to store my furniture?
At Safestore, we have over 40 different room sizes across our storage facilities. The size that you will need will be dependent on what you’re hoping to store. But typically the size of unit needed to store furniture will start from a 35 sq. ft., which is ideal for storing the contents of a one bedroom flat and work up to a 250 sq. ft. unit which will usually hold the contents of a 4-5 bedroom house, garage and shed.
However, we have a really useful storage size tool to help you choose the right size unit for your furniture, and you can choose to increase or decrease the size of your unit at any time after your first week with us if your storage needs change.
How much does it cost to put your furniture in storage?
The price of a self-storage
unit for your furniture is dependent on the location of the store, the size of the unit, the length of stay and the amount of insurance you’ll require. Similar to real-estate the closer you get to major cities the higher the running costs which will be reflected in the price.
