8 Smart Ways to Use Self Storage

Forget that image you’ve got in your head of dusty old storage units filled with boxes of stuff no one wants. Modern day self storage is a clean, safe and convenient way to store the things you don’t use every day. With Grace you’ll still have easy access to whatever you tuck away, so if you need some extra space, self storage could be just the thing for you.

Apartment Dwellers

Living in an apartment in the heart of the city has loads of benefits, but unfortunately, space isn’t one of them. Rather than trying to shove your camping gear under the bed, or letting your summer wardrobe fill up the hallway, grab a self-storage unit and free up your living areas. Grace has options costing less than a coffee a day, making self storage the smart solution for city living.

Renovators

Renovating is messy, dusty work. It can be a nightmare trying to keep your furniture rubble free when you’re knocking down walls, which makes self storage a life saver. With no lock-in contracts you can store with Grace for as long, or short, a time as you need. Take your peace of mind one step further with our Load4U service – our professional removalists will come to you, pack and protect your items and take them away for storage.
