  2. Store your Family Heirlooms

    You may have inherited some priceless antique furniture, fine art, or fine bone china pieces that have been passed down in your family through the generations, and now it is your turn to own these. But if you do not have the space for them in your current home what do you do with them? It is not your place to sell them as you are keeping them safely for the next generation. Although these may not be items that you use every day, you may need to find a safe place to store them until you move to a larger house when you can display them to full effect. Storing them in your garage or attic is not a viable option as these heirlooms can be badly damaged by dust. Insects such as beetle that can cause irreparable damage to wooden furniture. A secure self storage unit in a reputable facility such as Stop & Store Lowestoft will enable to you store these valuable items safely and securely.

  3. Store your Holiday Gear

    This expensive equipment such as camping gear is normally used during summer, and ski equipment and the bulky cold weather clothing is used during winter holidays. This equipment takes up a lot of space at home where it can easily be damaged by storing it carelessly. There are also the other items that are used during summer holidays such as kayaks, even boats, and surf skis that take up a lot of space in a garage, often leaving no place to park your car. These items can all be very successfully stored during the months that they are not in use.

    You may be a weekend cyclist living in a small apartment and need to find a place to keep your bike so that it does not clutter up your entrance hall or take up space in your living room. Hire a storage unit nearby to where you live so that you can make the most of your weekend riding time while being sure that during the week it is safely stored away. Not only will it not be in the way at home, but also there wont be any danger of it being stolen as the security measures at our storage facility are often superior to what most people have at home.

  4. A Bonus Wardrobe

    A self storage unit makes an ideal alternative wardrobe where you can store your winter clothes during summer and swap them out when the weather starts getting warmer. Extra clothes take up so much wardrobe space at home, and unless you have the luxury of an enormous dressing room with plenty of cupboard space, hiring a storage unit is an option that deserves careful consideration. You don’t even have to pack your clothes in boxes if you purchase a few clothes rails and put up some shelving on the walls of the units. You can pack your clothes away and cycle them as the seasons proceed. At Stop & Store Lowestoft you can access your wardrobe whenever you need to.
