Save money on long term storage in Oxfordshire with containerised storage

There are times in all of our lives when we need a bit of space. Self storage is an easy way to get a bit of breathing room, or to keep your things safe and secure when you haven't got space at home or in the office.

Our Oxford self storage is a great solution for storing your things on a temporary basis. But sometimes you need to store things for longer periods. House & Carriage provide the perfect solution with long term containerised storage at our sites across Oxfordshire.

If you know that you don't need regular access to your items, you can make a significant saving. Containerised long term storage can be much cheaper than normal self storage rates. It's ideal for storing your possessions for periods of 6 months or more.

If you need shorter term storage, or instant access to your things, then our self storage facilities around Oxford might be a better fit.

What is containerised long term storage?

We use purpose-built wooden crates for our long term storage. Each wooden container holds 250 cubic feet, which is about the same as a Transit van. The containers are kept in our warehouses in Charlbury and Kidlington. As such they are easy to get to from across Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds. Alternatively, our expert removals team can collect your items and deliver them back to you when you want them.

Our containers are safe, dry and temperature controlled. This makes them ideal for storing a range of items longer term, including:

  • furniture, clothing and household items,
  • art, books and antiques,
  • business archives.

When you have filled your container, it will be sealed and stored in our secure warehouse. Containers can be stacked and stored in tight rows, which means that they're not well suited to regular access. However, the benefit of this is low rates, starting from as little as £11 per week.

We offer instant access self storage at the same sites near Oxford. If containerised storage doesn't meet your needs you may find that self storage is more suitable. Contact us and we'd be happy to advise you.

Long term storage for all situations

Long term containerised storage is ideal for storing your possessions when downsizing your home – whether temporarily or permanently. Our trained and uniformed staff can pack your things safely and deliver them to your storage container without you needing to lift a finger. You can combine this service with our expert removals service.

When building work or renovations are taking over your home, putting your possessions into long term storage can help to keep your project on time and to budget. Your things will be out of the way of the builders and safe from dust, paint and damage throughout the course of the build.

If you're working abroad for a fixed term, long term storage is a great way to keep hold of your things until you return. If you decide to stay, our international removals service can reunite you with your belongings with the minimum of fuss.

Businesses can benefit from long term storage too. It's a great way of freeing up office space, providing an alternative place to keep your important documentation and other archives. Long term storage can also help with stock management. It allows you to keep your seasonal items or excess stock safe at a lower cost than many alternatives.
