After a career in retail and media I decided to do something completely different and create a self storage business. It’s been an exciting journey and I’ve learnt a lot along the way from both the industry and most importantly, my customers.
I Want Storage – Bedford Self Storage offers a unique way for domestic and businesses to store their belongings or inventory securely and conveniently.
When I set up this facility I looked at other facilities nearby and saw some things that I thought could be improved:
I like secure storage rooms, so our storage rooms are fitted with two separate alarm systems and have solid ceilings. Other facilities have mesh ceilings that allow customers to look into other storage rooms.
Ceiling heights were very low in other facilities. I believe customers get more value from rooms with high ceilings, so ours are 2.9m high. This allows customer to have the choice of choosing smaller sized and paying less for their storage.
Opening times 9am – 5pm? I thought this was crazy. I think it’s important for my customers to be able to visit their belongings whenever they choose. That is why we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year.
Padlock keys can get lost and pin codes can be forgotten. So that is why we have an app for your phone that allows you to get into the facility and open the door to your storage room. You can also share access with other people to your storage room. So if you have removal people, or if you’re abroad and need something dropped off in your room, you don’t need to be there.
Flexible storage options: if you choose a room size and need to switch up or down you can do that on the day. Equally, we don’t ask for an upfront deposit, you pay on the date of your move in. You can change your move-in date as many times as you like or even cancel, before the move-in date occurs and not have to pay a single penny.
Being cost-effective for my customer is important. I constantly monitor the market price of our storage rooms to ensure they are competitively priced. We also offer short and long term price promotions for our internal self storage facility. This makes our self storage facility the most cost-effective solution for individuals and businesses that need temporary or long-term storage options. You only pay for the space you need, and the fees are usually lower than other storage options.
All our rooms are the ground floor, there are no steps or stair to deal with and with a total of 46 rooms you will not have to walk long distances to find your storage room.
I Want Storage – Bedford Container Storage. Since starting the self storage facility in Bedford we have branched out into container storage in Bedford. This offers customers the benefit on driving right up to their storage unit, which is placed in a secure area with a secure gate entry and CCTV.
One of the advantages of container storage is its flexibility. This is particularly useful for businesses that need to store inventory or equipment that may need to be relocated in the future. In addition, off-site storage containers can free up valuable space on your property, allowing you to make better use of your existing facilities.
Container storage is also very secure. Containers are made of heavy-duty, weather-resistant materials, making them resistant to break-ins and weather damage.
Another advantage of container storage is that it is cost-effective. Renting one of our containers can be much more affordable than building or leasing a warehouse facility. Containers can also be customised and modified to suit your specific storage needs, further reducing costs and increasing efficiency.
Accessibility just like our self storage facility is 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Each of our containers is fitted with a lock box, which provides additional security for your container. We also sell secure container padlocks and you are welcome to use your own padlock if you prefer.
Finally, I love to help customers so here are some tips on how to choose your self storage room:
1. Determine the size of the storage space you need: Before you start your search, determine the size of the space that you need. Take an inventory of the items you’ll be storing and consider their size and shape.
2. Choose a location that is convenient: Select a self storage facility that is located close to your home or work. This makes it easy for you to access your items when you need them.
3. Look for a facility with good security: Select a self storage facility that has good security measures in place. This typically includes features like surveillance cameras, gated access and individual unit alarms.
4. Compare prices: Check prices from multiple storage facilities to ensure you are getting a good deal. Look for promotions, discounts and deals that can help you save money.
5. Read reviews: Check online reviews from other customers to learn about the experiences they have had with various storage facilities.
