When looking around for cheap storage it’s best to shop around and find the best deal going. While we know that price isn’t everything when it comes to buying something (the article or service may be inferior) it certainly helps if it’s cheap and is also of good quality.

Finding bargains and good deals often take a bit of time, and they are not always available locally. These days with online shopping it doesn’t matter where you are, the price you are quoted will include getting it to you. The same can’t be said for many other things, and mostly it’s advisable to ask about the hidden costs that may be added after purchase.

When it comes to cheap self storage it is possible to get a good deal and a quality product combined. By looking around for affordable storage in Penrith, you are sure to come across a few storage facilities. But are you going to choose the correct one? It depends on the questions you ask and the results you get.

Stop & Store Penrith as a reputable storage space provider around Cumbria and beyond are leaders in offering value and quality self storage. For this reason, we thought it wise to give you the low down on what to look for when searching for the best storage deal in the North Lakes area.

When Budget Storage is Important to You

The need to use external storage may come at a time when you have to fit the cost into your budget. It may be for an economical reason or because it’s simply something you didn’t put into that month’s budget. Either way if you are taken by surprise and must source outside storage, don’t despair. Self storage is cheaper than most people think.

One of the reasons for this is that storage facilities tailor their overheads to suit the self storage rent agreement, mainly to the benefit of the renter. This means that it is possible to find affordable storage in your area.

Once you have got some quotations, then the questions you raise of your self storage provider should follow suit.

Cheap storage should not come at the cost of compromising, say, security or customer service. These are after all, two of the more important aspects you’d hope to find in a self storage facility.

Storage Location

You would expect that self storage in a big city like London would cost more per square foot than say, a self storage unit in Penrith. Well, you are right. It does, simply because the prices of property and services are higher.

Having considered this, if you are in a big city, then it may be preferable to get self storage in an outer-lying locality like Penrith, rather than London if you visit the Lakes on a regular basis. If you are going to store your seasonal stuff, sporting, or holiday goods, rather leave them for next time on location, like in Penrith. It’s simple math that shows that affordable storage in Penrith is the way to go.

Secondly, the location of the storage unit is most important. You may need access at a convenient time, and it should be easily within reach. This implies that the self storage unit you rent must be accessible at times you’d expect to use it and that it will be on a route that makes it easy to reach.

Self storage units that offer climate control are more costly as they use energy to maintain their temperature at a specific level. A self storage unit that is clad with insulation and can guarantee an ambient temperature control, unless you have a particular need for a constantly cool unit, is generally perfect for the job at hand.

Storage Size and Duration: Factors to Consider

Self storage becomes cheaper per square foot as the units get bigger. This means that if you want to store something small, then relatively speaking the space costs you proportionally more. This means that it pays to get affordable storage which is designed to accommodate bigger loads.

For this reason, Stop & Store Penrith have one economical cheap storage unit available with is approximately 65 sq feet that can accommodate the contents of a small flat. This helps those doing a budget storage calculation find the cheapest storage option in Penrith. It means that when you see a unit’s price, its wise to bring it back to a cost per square feet each time.

Another parameter to factor into the pricing that helps improve the affordability and reduce the price is your duration of occupancy. Some self storage providers, like ourselves at Stop & Store offer discounts from time to time.

These may not be immediately visible when searching for the best price for storage in Penrith. Ask the service provider and you may be surprised to learn that a discount of one month’s free rent is offered if you take a long-term contract.

Ask the questions and you are sure to find a self storage unit that fits your needs, at a price you can afford.

Customer Service

It may sound obvious, but not all self storge facilities are the same. Bringing personality to our business is a philosophy not always shared by all self storage companies.

A way to gauge the level of service you may expect from your storage service provider can be done on the phone or by looking at reviews on their websites. Here you will get a good idea of other customers’ thoughts and comments relating to the storage experience they have had.
