So, what is Mobile Self Storage?
Go Box started business in May 2016, here at our depot in central Belfast and apart from close family and friends asking: ‘Well, how’s business?’, the most common question I get is – what is mobile self storage?
– Business is great by the way, and thank you for asking, but it’s this second question I need to answer here…
Most of us have seen Storage Hunters on TV in recent years. It’s a familiar set up, as big ‘Green Mile’ snaps open another storage unit, the fast talking Sean Kelly auctions off the promise of hidden treasures. Meanwhile husband and wife team Lori and Brandon try to out bid the hapless Jesse or ‘Papa Bear’ for the bragging rights to untold riches, before finally discovering they’ve been sold a pup.
Is it real or staged? – Who knows, but regardless of the authenticity of the cast, it is filmed on location at genuine self storage sites in the US and UK. You will notice that some of the locations provide outside ‘drive to’ storage units whilst others provide the more traditional indoor corridor style locker units. Both of these solutions provide customers with easy to access storage and are popular both sides of the Atlantic. But, without stating the obvious, the purpose of a self storage centre is to store stuff and that requires some means of transportation to get your stuff there safely.
So What’s it to Be?
- The family hatchback? – The sofa might have to go on the roof and you’ll have to make several return trips, but where there’s a will there’s a way.
- Van Rental? – Takes more forward planning but you might have help and the risk is manageable provided you take out the Excess Insurance Cover.
- Removal Company? – A more expensive option but provided they’ve been recommended and you’ve been allocated their best movers, fingers crossed.
The problem is, even if you have a friend with access to a van, who is willing and able to help you out, all these solutions require the unnecessary double handling of your goods. i.e. Load at your house, unload at the loading bay, transfer to your storage unit and lock it up. Be warned, it’s common practice that only the longest staying and highest paying tenants get the storage units closest to the entrance. – And don’t forget, you’ve to do this all again on the return trip – Yikes!
