Long term storage

Long term storage allows you to store items for extended periods of time, typically for several months or even years. In the UK, long term storage facilities are available for a wide range of purposes, including household items, business inventory, and even vehicles. These facilities typically offer secure storage options that are designed to protect your items from damage, theft, or other risks. Reputable long term storage facilities include features such as fire suppression systems and advanced security measures including CCTV cameras, access control systems, and alarms.

What is considered long term storage

The duration of long term storage can vary depending on the storage provider and the specific needs of the customer. Long term storage may be necessary for short periods of time, such as a few months, while in other cases, it may be necessary for several years or even indefinitely. Some common examples of long term storage in the UK include storing household items while moving abroad for a year or more, storing seasonal items such as holiday decorations or sports equipment during the off-season, storing excess inventory for a business that is not needed immediately, also called ‘archiving’, or storing a classic car or other valuable vehicles or items that are not used regularly.

Ultimately, what is considered long term storage depends on the individual needs of the customer and the specific storage provider. It is important to discuss your needs with the storage provider to determine the best storage duration for your specific situation.

Long term storage can be a good solution for a variety of situations. For example, if you are moving abroad temporarily, you may need to store your belongings until you return. Or, if you are downsizing your home, you may need to store excess furniture or other items that you do not have space for in your new home. When choosing a long term storage provider, it is important to consider factors such as the location of the facility, the security features offered, and the cost of the storage space. You should also ensure that the provider has a good reputation and a track record of providing reliable and high-quality storage solutions.

There are various long term and short term storage options available for individuals and businesses. Some of these options include:

What should you not put in long term storage?

Items that are priceless and irreplaceable: Important documents, cash, jewellery, and other valuables shouldn’t be kept in long-term storage, as they can be lost or stolen. It’s better to keep them in a secure location, such as a safe deposit box or a home safe. Not all antiques and valuables fall under this category; in fact, storage companies often advise customers to safely store valuable items in long term storage rather than at home.

Unregistered or uninsured vehicles: All vehicles such as cars, boats, recreational vehicles etc must be properly registered and insured before you can store them.  This is important to ensure that you are not violating any laws and to protect yourself from liability in case of theft or damage while in storage. It is also recommended to properly prepare the vehicle for storage, such as draining fluids and disconnecting the battery, to prevent any potential damage.

Weapons and ammunition, tires, and furs are a few other items that cannot be stored in a long term storage facility.

Overall, it’s important to carefully consider what items you plan to store in long term storage and discuss any concerns with your storage provider. They can advise you
