The benefits of containerised storage

When putting personal belongings into storage, many people only consider self-storage units which they have access to 24/7 using their own key. However, there are other storage options available which provide safe and secure storage for loads of varying sizes, an example of which is containerised units which are purpose-built for high security, cost-effective and efficient storage.


As the summer season is one of the busiest times for domestic removals, this article will serve to explain the advantages of containerised storage and how your move can benefit from such services.



High security

The high levels of security associated with using containerised storage mean you can have complete confidence that your belongings are safe and secure. Here at Harradines, we offer containerised storage facilities which are monitored using Redcare security and a remote monitored CCTV system, so you can enjoy complete peace of mind that the top surveillance technology is being used to protect your items.


Our fully alarmed facilities also feature security fencing to ensure no one other than storage staff and owners of storage units can access the premises.


Efficient set-up

Compared with self-storage, containerised storage boasts a far more efficient process. Typically, all you need to do is rent the container and professional packers will unload your belongings into the unit in an organised and careful manner. To ensure your belongings are kept in pristine condition, all units should be temperature controlled and clean so you won’t need to worry about any sensitive items such as documents, computer files or tapes becoming damaged.

At Harradines, we understand the importance of making sure your items are organised and quick to locate, which is why an inventory is taken of your belongings before they are security sealed into an individually numbered containerised storage unit. For ultimate convenience, we also offer a collection and delivery service of your items, ensuring a detailed, thorough service.


Value for money

Compared with self-storage, a container unit and the associated benefits mean you are paying a very reasonable price for a comprehensive service, ensuring competitive rates and great value for money.


Length of storage

Whether you require a container storage unit for a short or long period of time, there is no minimum or maximum storage term imposed on customers; you simply rent a container unit and store your belongings there for whatever length of time you wish. Our flexible approach means our storage services are available at short notice, no matter what size the load is.
