Self-Contained Storage Units in Spain

There is no shortage of storage units in Spain, but that doesn´t mean that all of them will be right for you. Before making your decision, consider the location, access and security of the storage facilities.

Convenience is important as you don´t want to have to drive for hours if you need to remove or add something to your storage unit. If for example, you are storing paperwork or stock for a business, you may want to access the facility regularly.

Check that the hours of access suit your needs. There is no point in storing your goods at a warehouse that only opens a few hours a day.

Security is of paramount importance. Your goods may be worth a great deal of money or have a lot of sentimental value. Either way, you need to be sure your goods are being stored securely. Choose a storage facility with 24-hour video surveillance and a fully alarmed warehouse. Modern-day storage facilities are clean, secure and alarmed.

Price is important but don’t let this be your sole consideration when choosing the best storage solution for you. If you need regular access to the unit, it may be worth paying a little extra to use a facility near your home or business. Alternatively, if you are planning to store furniture long term, you may save money by using a facility further away.
