Smarter Uses of Space – Self Storage

Smarter Storage Space

The spaces where we live our lives are often overlooked in their importance. However, at Fort Box, one of the messages we discuss at length with our customers is the importance of the spaces where they live and work in. The places where you eat, where you sleep, where you watch TV or listen to music, where you entertain your friends and spend time with your family; the places where you meet with your team to discuss that week’s agenda, the places you make crucial decisions and game-changing business proposals – it’s within these spaces that a lot of our lives exist, and it’s of utmost importance to make the most out of them. 

Finding decent, affordable work and living spaces in London is extremely difficult to nearly impossible. For a majority of Londoners, a large percentage of monthly income is spent on rent or mortgages, even for those on high wages. The cost of living in one of the most exciting cities on earth comes at a hefty cost, and even modest lodgings can’t be found for under £ 1, 000.

Whether it’s residential or commercial rental costs, it’s essential to get as much value for money out of your property as possible. That means using space wisely and renting a more affordable property for you or your business. That could mean choosing your location with care to try and avoid the areas with inflated rental or mortgage costs but also ensuring that your commute to work isn’t compromised as a result. Fortunately, London’s transport system is one of the best in the world, so it’s usually only a few tube rides away for people in the city to get around. It could also mean doing some research and viewing as many properties as possible, noting ones with decent additional storage spaces and inventive ways to combine room functions. If a room can serve more than one purpose then it is well worth looking into.

Affordability is the key phrase here – if you think you need to rent an office that has multiple rooms and storage spaces then try to find what you ideally want in your price range. When that doesn’t work, try and imagine other ways of accomplishing those rooms’ functions in less space. The lower your monthly overheads the more money you have spare for your business’s cash flow or the weekly shopping budget.

So what’s the best solution for people in London who want to spend less money on their monthly rent for their home or business but also want to maintain the living and work spaces they require?

At Fort Box, we believe that it’s possible for anyone to create more space in their home, office or factory by using our storage facilities. By renting a self storage unit with us, you will be able to create huge amounts of space in your home or at work, at a drastically cheaper price when compared to the costs per square metre for commercial or residential rental properties.

When our customers visit their Fort Box self storage unit they are met by someone they know. A lot of our customers have told us that past experiences with larger storage providers lacked that human connection, mostly due to staff turnover. They never spoke to the same person more than twice. By having more intimate relationships with our customers we’re able to understand what their needs are, how we can assist with any issues, and when their storage needs change, we’re able to provide them with the most suitable options to fit their new requirements.

Our goal is to work with our customers to make a self storage service plan that’s tailor-made for their needs. That means the self storage unit should meet the size requirements for each individual customer, which could mean 50-square-foot for a typical room’s worth of storage all the way up to much larger storage units for business customers. We have a wide range of self storage units on offer so we can guarantee to find the right storage unit for you.

We have weekly contracts available and we have a range of other offers, such as – One Month Rent Free, Free Van Collection, and we always aim to offer the most affordable rates on today’s market, and if you find a cheaper rate, we have our Low Price Guarantee offer.

We want to provide a service we would expect to receive, and by constantly working with our customers and perfecting our range of services, we’re confident that you’ll receive the highest level of customer service.

The Fort Box teams understand that, when you put the customer first, everything else works.
