Should I Choose the Cheapest Storage in London?

By Manny Sahmbi || Posted September 24, 2020

Many services claim to offer the cheapest storage in London…but should you always go with the absolute lowest price on paper? We don’t necessarily think so – not least because less reliable providers don’t always end up being as cheap as you think!

Your belongings deserve being taken care of properly and professionally. Here at Happy2Move, we understand that you want to find a cheap London storage provider who’ll do just that.

With that in mind, here are a few other factors worth considering when looking for a short-term or long-term cheap storage solution in the capital.

Who uses cheap self-storage in London, and why?

Over the years, we’ve learned that a lot of different sorts of people need easy access to cheap self storage in London for a multitude of different reasons. In short, countless everyday situations can mean you end up needing to make use of a reliable and cost-effective London storage facility.

Examples include:

Moving house

As professional movers, one of the most common scenarios we tend to encounter is when people are downsizing to a smaller property. Many Happy2Move customers also make use of our secure storage offers when they’re planning to relocate, but haven’t yet decided on exactly which pieces of furniture will be coming with them.

Any items that they’re thinking of selling, swapping, replacing, or gifting to another family member will often go into storage for a while. Provided you’ve chosen a reliable London storage company, you can rest assured that they’ll be handled and managed with due care, respect and attention.

Workplace storage

Business or office moves are another reason we’re often asked about our safe long- and short-term storage facilities. It’s often the case that newly leased premises aren’t yet fully fitted out for 9-to-5 working, and sometimes it’s unclear at the outset exactly which staff, departments and equipment will be making the switch to a new building.

In that case, flexible secure storage can be a real asset until things are properly up and running in the new space. Time is money, so you’ll always want to make sure your business storage arrangements are convenient and flexible!

Student storage in London

Students are another group who regularly need somewhere to keep their term-time books, clothes, computers and other key items – particularly when summer breaks and those inevitable changes to landlord contracts roll around.

Depending on where you live the rest of the time, it can be a real pain to have to drive your possessions around the capital (or even up and down the country!) in between tenancies when the academic year comes to an end. Many instead choose to place their university belongings in cheap temporary storage.

Whatever the reason, and whether you need it for just a few weeks or on a more long-term basis, Happy2Move can offer you a great value storage deal in London. Our secure lockups benefit from 24-hour monitored access, and our plans are completely flexible so you’ll never end up tied into a longer contract than you need.

Cheap is good – but cheapest doesn’t always mean good value!

We’ve learned from many of our regular clients and customers that, when it comes to sourcing cheap self-storage in London, there are certain key criteria they consider more important than finding the absolute bottom-rung price tag. These include:

Convenience

Maximum convenience to you is always at the heart of all our customer storage arrangements – this includes anytime access to your stored goods, and the ability to change your arrangement with us as you see fit.

Secure and managed facilities

Our managed storage facilities are securely guarded and monitored at all times. We want you to enjoy peace of mind knowing that your cherished possessions are in safe hands, rather than sitting around unwatched in a ‘bargain price’ unmanned lockup somewhere!

A helping hand with storage and transport

At Happy2Move, storage is just one part of what we do – elsewhere, we also offer a full suite of packing, delivery, courier and removals services. Because we’re always available 7 days per week across all regions of the capital and its neighbouring areas, this means you’ll never be left stranded when it comes to moving and storing heavy or bulky items.

In other words, ours in an end-to-end service: even if you need us at very short notice, we’ll almost always be able to provide a professional and courteous man with a van service right to your door.

Transparency and flexibility in pricing

Many places claiming to be the ‘cheapest storage in London’ are only low-priced on paper. In fact, by the time you’ve paid up for unavoidable add-on costs or to end a contract early, you actually end up forking out a lot more. You won’t get that with Happy2Move.

Not only do we want you to have a great experience when renting cheap London storage from us, we also want to save you money on both our long- and short-term storage deals. That’s why we pride ourselves on offering completely flexible contract terms, making sure you’ll never end up paying for any so-called ‘extras’ you don’t need.
