5 Benefits of Renting an External Storage Unit

Drive Your Car Up to the Unit 

If you’re frequently loading and unloading things from your storage unit, it will make your life a lot easier if you simply back up to it in your car. If you’ve never used an internal storage space before, you may not realize how much time you can spend going back and forth between your vehicle and your designated storage space, not to mention the time you spend loading and unloading the trolley to move your possessions.

When you rent an external storage unit, you won’t have to spend a huge amount of time moving your things from vehicle to trolley, up through the building (internal storage spaces are often on upper floors), and then into your unit. At our external storage units in Aberdare, and at others around the country, you can simply drive up to your unit and do whatever it is you need to do. 

24hr Access 

If you’re storing items for your business or for a move, you may need to access your storage unit in the early hours of the morning or late at night, and an external storage unit makes that easy. Simply drive up to the compound, use your code to get in through the security gate, and access your locker no matter what time of day or night you need to visit

High Level of Security 

An external storage unit offers you a level of security you won’t find anywhere else – you don’t have to worry about leaving your expensive possessions in a friend’s garage or in a shed at the back of your home where it can easily be broken into and stolen. Unfortunately, as you’ll know if you’ve ever had anything taken, criminals are rarely dissuaded by how close a garage or shed is to a home or business.

An external storage unit removes that element of worry from your life. All our external storage units are located in a secure compound with CCTV, electronic security gates, and the reassurance that there may be someone accessing their storage unit at any hour, which is enough to dissuade any thief. (And if you’re still worried, you can always get extra insurance to cover the value of your possessions.)

Store a Vehicle/Motorcycle 

What do you do with a vehicle you don’t want to sell but have nowhere to keep? An external storage unit is a perfect solution; external storage units are much larger than internal units and can easily fit a vehicle or numerous motorcycles.

If your vehicle doesn’t require a temperature and humidity-controlled environment, it makes little sense to pay an expensive weekly rent to store it with classic cars. If you’re simply going abroad for a few months and need a safe and secure place to park your vehicle, an external storage unit is an affordable and secure alternative to expensive car storage options.

Extremely Cost-Effective 

External storage units are often much larger than their internal counterparts, and that means you’re getting a lot more space (and convenience) for your money.

Additionally, if you’re a trade business and you need quick access to your tools but don’t want the expense of an office space, an external storage unit makes a great affordable alternative to commercial storage options, which often come with extra features (office space, facilities) that you simply don’t need, and so don’t want to pay for. An external storage unit helps you bypass that cost and keep your tools or stock in a secure, easy-access environment.
