Self Storage Given Boost By Government Advisory Group Report

Thursday, 27th August 2009
The growing demand for self storage in the U.K has been fed by the lack of storage space within new build properties of late. This has been highlighted in a report issued by The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (Cabe), last week. The research carried out for the report confirmed the views that self storage companies in London and Essex have held for some time, this being that new build houses and flats are just too small. The report showed that new builds have increasingly cramped conditions with many owners being unhappy about the design and dimensions of their homes. A lack of spare rooms and storage space within these houses has led many homeowners to turn to self storage facilities to fill in the gap. With local self stores quite often cheap storage can be found within a small radius of the house. Local self storage can consist of expensive warehouse type storage facilities or more economical secure container self storage. This type of facility is generally made up of new shipping containers formed into a secure, gated, compound and offers private and individual units. With the ever increasing population in the U.K and the shortage of space the knock on effect of cramped new build housing could continue for some time.
