Storage demand as homes get smaller
More of us are turning to selfstorage as clutter threatens to overwhelm our homes.
According to statistics, British houses have been steadily getting smaller over the last 30 years, with new-builds often unable to provide the storage space needed to accommodate their owners’ needs.
A survey carried out by storage.co.uk, a website designed to help people find local self-storage facilities throughout the country, 59 per cent of customers have been using self-storage for more than two years.
The average time existing customers have been using space is almost five years.
