Blue Box Self Storage

When selecting Blue Box Storage in Doncaster, South Yorkshire to store your belongings safely and securely. There may be a few things to consider, but not as important as this most crucial consideration – Price! How much is a Storage Container?

Look into storage container

When you’re using self-storage or a storage container for a long period of time, it makes sense to shop around for the best price before filtering the options in-line with your other requirements.

Here at Blue Box, we’ve broken down the costs of storage containers to help you make an informed and right decision. For example, how about prices per sq. ft? Well this differs on the unit size, but for an average 50 sq. ft. unit you will pay around £140pcm, which breaks down to a sq. ft. rate of £2.80.

However, the bigger the unit, the smaller the cost per. Sq. ft. So, if you’re wondering what is included in the price here’s what you can expect if you were to store with Blue Box Storage:

  • 24/7 controlled access to your unit – they’re your belongings, so you can visit them whenever you please!
  • Use of trollies to transport your things safely
  • A covered loading bay in case it’s a rainy day when you move in
  • Your own personal keypad code, which allows you secure access to the building
  • Ample parking

Other self-storage facilities with alternate companies will offer similar, but possibly not all, of the services mentioned above. Research is crucial to find out exactly what it is that you want offered, and what you do or don’t need from your facility.

What is a Container? Container storage is an option which allows you to store your items in a secure unit that is portable, meaning that you can store it in a location that you have access to.

However, the questions that you need to ask is: ‘Are you happy about your belongings being stored in a Container?’ ‘Is a Container stored outdoors, if so, is it waterproof?’ and ‘Do I get the same security as I would do with a storage facility?’. We have an answer to all those, a short one – yes! Everything about our containers are safe and secure to put your worries to bed.

Other Prices and Special Offers

When you’re looking for a storage container, or a provider that hires them, it can often be quite tempting to accept one of the many special offers that facilities provide to entice customers. However, just be careful not to be misled by the different phrasings that some storage facilities may use.

For example, a very common offer is 50% off for the first two months that you store with a storage facility. This is actually translated into ‘you’ll get one month free’ When these offers are placed in front of you, at first glance it may seem that they’re offering you different things, due to the different phrasings that they may use.

Calculating prices using weeks or months can also be confusing when you’re trying to compare how much a storage container would cost in other facilities. If a company presents a price in months, and a competitor in weeks – you’ll need some time to work out the exact amounts, and don’t assume they’re for the same time period.

Long-Term Storage

The longer you store, the bigger your potential savings. If self-storage is a long-term option for you or your business it would be advisable to ask about longer term contracts and payment options.

How about Quality?

It can be tempting to opt for the cheapest quote when selecting self-storage, but this isn’t necessarily the best way to choose a home for your prized possessions. Selecting the right provider for your storage ensures that your specific needs are met.
