Self Storage Oldham – We Answer Some of The Frequently Asked Questions We Receive

Self Storage in Oldham Gtr ManchesterSelf Storage in Oldham

Oldham is one of the best places to live in the United Kingdom (In our opinion), but the problem is that the longer you live in any one property, the more clutter you tend to accumulate. Many people will talk about the benefits of decluttering, and whilst there is a lot of merit in this concept, the reality is that there may be a multitude of reasons as to why people do not want to get rid of their valued possessions, be that emotional or sentimental reasons, or simply because they like them even though they are rapidly running out of space to store everything.

That is why more and more people are embracing the concept of self-storage and why MCR Storage has grown rapidly over the last few years. Let’s look at some of the main questions potential customers ask when considering investing in a self-storage solution.

What Are The Main Advantages of Utilising Self-Storage Units For Residential Customers?

Self Storage OldhamThere are many reasons why people utilise Self-storage units, but the fundamental problem they solve is the option of managing space efficiently. As new build properties are built, storage options tend to be one of the areas where corners are cut in order to cram as many properties into a space as possible. As businesses grow, their thirst for additional storage space increases and self-storage space provides the ultimate, efficient and affordable solution.

Declutter Your Home or Office Without Having To Get Rid of Property

Although you may still need to keep your items of property, it is probably fair to say that many items will not be used on a regular basis. Christmas and Halloween decorations, for instance, are a perfect example.

Likewise, if you are a sporty family, paddleboards or trailer tents are unlikely to be used in the winter months, which means they can add to your clutter and take up valuable space with next to no benefit. Investing in a self-storage unit allows you to easily transition between winter and summer items while retaining sufficient storage in your main home.

A Safe and Secure Environment For All of Your Precious and Valuable Items

What Are The Main Benefits of MCR Storage Self-Storage Units For Business Customers?

This may vary depending on the type of business you operate, but the key benefits include:

Storing Business Files SafelyInventory and stock storage – Stock and the ability to store stock safely can play a critical aspect in every business. In many cases, you may benefit from a bulk buying discount, or perhaps you can take advantage of an unbelievable promotion. Without the benefits of a self-storage unit, you may not be able to avail yourself of these bargains, but by having extra storage from MCR Storage, you can invest in additional stock, which, over time, will maximise your profits and potentially help your business to grow.

Document Storage – Of course, not every business involves inventory; certain businesses, such as legal or accountancy, may need to store large quantities of documentation. Whilst it could be argued that the switch to digital has reduced the requirements for hard copy storage, financial documents need to be retained for a minimum of seven years, for instance, so there is still a need for storage for this purpose.

self storage Storage During A Renovation

Some businesses may be blessed with ample storage facilities in their business premises, but of course, at some point, there may be a need for the renovation of the property, at which point finding a suitable location to store documents or stock during the renovation could become an issue. That is once again where MCR Storage can come to the rescue due to the fact that we offer short-term storage options without the need to sign up for long-term punitive contracts.
