Following Brexit and now the Corona Virus, more people are putting the idea of house moves on hold until there is more economic stability. These issues, coupled with the interest rate on the rise, means even fewer people are considering moving house, instead just using storage for possessions they don’t have the room for in their current property.
Lack of houses
There is a low supply of new-housing available in the UK, meaning people need a safe place to store their extra items while they wait for their new home to be ready for them.
With many businesses becoming unstable following Brexit, they are turning to more cost-effective ideas to support their company. For example, rather than purchasing or renting bigger office space, many businesses are taking the more cost-effective route of remaining where they are comfortable and using self-storage units for their extra possessions.
Social distancing measures
Following the Government guidance for 2-meter social distancing within restaurants, bars, cafes, and pubs, many of these businesses are turning to self-storage to house the furniture they can no longer keep on their shop floor. The 2-meter rule between customers is not just vital for the health of consumers, but also these businesses staff, so many are taking it seriously and being left with an excess of tables, chairs, and barstools that they no longer have the room for. Pushed aside items often look cluttered and can put customers off.
Large families in small homes
The average family in the UK is 2.4 persons, yet our homes are smaller than the average European home, meaning many people have more possessions than they have the room for. With the rise in minimalistic interiors but more awareness of an item’s value, many people want to remove belongings from their home that they don’t use frequently but aren’t willing to throw it away for environmental reasons. Therefore many families are turning to self-storage as a long term solution.
With 2020 being a more economically uncertain year, if you find yourself in one of the positions listed, consider using Manchester self-storage units as a solution to your problem.
