Choosing storage in York: How to choose wisely

Today there are 42 million square feet of storage space in the UK (SSA). Little wonder why, really, when the average home packs in a staggering 300,000 items – resulting in the home tripling in size over the past 50 years. With so much under our roofs, it’s unsurprising that year in, year out, more and more of us are seeking our self-storage.

Whether you’re faced with overflowing cupboards, or simply need a pit stop for your possessions between properties, if you’re seeking storage in York here are four pointers for selecting the right storage company.

How to choose your York self-storage provider

1. First things first: location, location, location

Whether you’ll need regular access to your container, or are only going to require access when you arrive to collect your items for the move onwards, you need your storage to be convenient. It then makes sense that you’d consider location first and foremost.

Our self-storage partner Inner Space Stations offers storage in York and Hull, across four key locations:

  • York city centre
  • Hull Road, York
  • Dunnington, York
  • Dunswell, Hull

2. Consider reputation

Reputation tells you a lot about a company and, more to the point, the customer service you can expect when using their services. So our second pointer when choosing storage is to look for a company with a glowing reputation for excellent customer service.

At Van Man York, we’ve gone to great lengths to discover a storage partner with an exceptional track record for delighting customers – a search that ultimately led us to Inner Space Stations York. Here are a few recent comments from their many happy customers…

“The space theme atmosphere is amazing, very friendly staff” – SAM, SEPTEMBER 2017

3. Look for superior security

When you choose a storage company in York, you’re entrusting a company with what effectively could be a lot of valuables. It’s then a no brainer that they NEED to have exceptional security – that means CCTV, robust locks, high quality containers/boxes and 24/7 staff on site.

4. Consider cost

This final pointer is always going to be important, but you shouldn’t place cost above everything else – affordability must be balanced with the level of customer service and the strength of security.

Inner Space Stations offer a best price guarantee. Put simply, if you find a cheaper like-for-like storage package elsewhere, they’ll match it.

They also offer plenty of options – created to suit every storage need – from requiring a box for a week, to a large container for the foreseeable future.

  • Boxes – Priced from £1 a week
  • Small Units – Priced from £10 a week
  • Medium Units – Priced from £25 a week
  • Large Units – Priced from £50 a week
