Things to look for when choosing a self-storage company

Self storage is useful for many different purposes but whether you are looking for container, vehicle or document storage, you will need to research the self storage rental company beforehand to ensure they can offer you the right service.

MIGHTY Self Storage, based in Leicester, have 25 years of experience in the sector and have put together a list of factors to consider when choosing the right self storage rental.

Security Measures

Security is paramount whenever looking at hiring a personal storage unit. For peace of mind, investigate the company’s security arrangement before purchasing space. CCTV and alarms are essential to keeping your belongings safe. Additionally, your own unit should be secured with single-key access so you are in complete control over who gets in and out. In the case of fire or flood, ensure the facilities are fully insured so that your belongings are covered.


Companies vary on cost and this can create a lot of pressure and time restraints if longer term prices start squeezing your budget. We pride ourselves on being affordable to everyone and our testimonials page show that our customers love our low prices. We also offer additional discounts for longer periods of time, and for certain groups such as NHS, emergency services and military personnel. Always make sure you’re getting the best price to avoid difficulties later on.


You’re likely to need to access your belongings from time to time, especially if you have a longer period of hire. Limited opening hours can be frustrating and restrictive. Ensure that the hours of access offered tie in with when you are likely to be able to visit. Ideally, the space you rent should function as an extension of your own home with as few limitations on access as possible, so find a company that offers 7 days a week admittance.

Companies that supply packing materials and removal services, or specialised storage options for documents or vehicles are also worth considering. Depending on your requirements these optional extras help keep your belongings in perfect condition.
