Sharing Storage Units with Friends or Family in Chesterfield and Bakewell

April 16, 2019

Life has a habit of moving as such a fast pace we forget to keep on top of things, and our possessions begin to take over entire rooms. Without realising it, we start to hoard stuff we rarely use, and it becomes a struggle to access the garage or loft. Essentially, our houses and apartments are meant for living in, but it’s easy to fall into the trap of using a spare space for storage. That’s where a reputable storage company like Matlock Storage can come to your rescue.

Although storage may sound like another cost you can do without it’s worth looking into, especially if the boxes are taking over. Matlock Storage has some of the lowest rates in the market in Derbyshire, and we work with customers from all over the county. The reason why people often choose us over local storage providers is due to our customer service. And if you want to reduce your costs further – you can consider co-sharing a unit with family or friends, which a few of our customers do.

Tips of Affordable Storage in Matlock, Chesterfield and Bakewell –

When it comes to storage, most people already have their mind made up about what they can expect from a typical unit or facility. The truth is, storage units are what you make of them. There is no set rule that dictates how people should use them. A lot of Matlock’s customers share their units with one or more family members.

You can also share units with close friends or business partners, and many businesses in Derbyshire rent self storage units from us. By co-renting a storage unit, everyone has the safety and security that a storage unit can offer. And because the costs are spread between everyone who’s sharing, it makes it even more affordable.

Matlock Storage has a range of storage options available, and we have a new Student Storage service. Many local students get together with their house or classmates to co-share a storage unit. This is ideal for students who visit home between terms and have valuable possessions they don’t want to travel with.

Keeping Your Belongings Safe with Self Storage –

If you pack a storage unit correctly to maximise its space, you can fit the equivalent of a small bedroom in a 50-sq-ft self storage unit. That means you can empty the entire contents of your room in your shared house with space to spare. By getting your housemates onboard, it’s feasible that you could share a 100-sq-ft unit for the entire property.

Storage is the ideal way to keep your possessions safe, especially if you have valuables or irreplaceable items. If you are currently storing expensive electronic equipment in your room, you’re running the risk of issues with theft or damage. Unfortunately, student areas are known for high burglary rates, which is mostly down to opportunism and lack of vigilance.

Ultimately, houses aren’t made for storage purposes, meaning there is a potential for damage to occur. The typical house roofing can leak during heavy rain, even in newer properties. And while the water doesn’t always seep through, it can cause damp and rot, which can then damage your possessions.
