With many self storage companies, you can end up forking out an expensive deposit to start storing with them. This particular issue can be challenging for customers that may struggle with paying a hefty deposit upfront. We recommend all customers consider this when shopping around for the best deal. At Cheap Storage Manchester, we value and respect our customers, that is why we will never ask customers for a deposit to store with us. A large part of finding the cheapest self storage facility in Manchester can often come down to not having to fork out for expensive initial deposit payments. With Cheap Storage Manchester, simply show up and start storing for your monthly fee (coincidentally this is also the cheapest in Manchester!)

3. How Much Is Storage Insurance?

Similar to that of a deposit, many other self storage companies will demand that you pay for mandatory and expensive insurance fees when you store with them. These compulsory fees can be huge and can often increase the cost of your storage exponentially. Finding a storage provider in Manchester that won’t charge you for compulsory insurance can be difficult but finding one will save you huge amounts of money. In many cases, the self storage facilities you are looking at are likely to be the safest and most secure places you have ever put your belongings. The need for insurance, therefore, becomes almost nonexistent in most cases. Cheap Storage Manchester won’t charge for mandatory compulsory insurance and in the cases where you need that extra peace of mind, we can often even offer it for free!

4. How Much Storage Space Do I Need?

Space, as obvious as it may seem, is the main contributing factor to the cost of your storage. Generally speaking the more space you need the more expensive your storage will be. Because of this many self storage companies will try to put your belongings into the biggest storage unit they can get away with. At Cheap Storage Manchester, we believe in developing a relationship of trust with our customers, that is why we will always quote our customers for the smallest storage unit we feel their items will fit into. We leave the decision to take a bigger storage unit for more space down to our customers. Having an idea of just how much space you actually need can be super useful when looking for self storage. At Cheap Storage Manchester, we even have a handy storage size estimator to help our customers gauge just how much space they actually need.

Getting your belongings from your house or business premises to your new storage unit can be daunting one.
