Why demand for self storage in Oxford and surrounding areas is growing rapidly…

Oxfordshire has always been a popular area to move to. Situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, it offers a more peaceful space than busy London, yet still has links to the city and other major towns. It’s no wonder then, that the need for Oxford self storage is increasing on an almost daily basis. 

Here are the top four reasons why Oxford self storage is so in demand:


1. Office space is at a premium


Businesses looking to downsize due to a hike in building rents or simply to declutter their office environment, are on the hunt for somewhere to store their equipment, marketing collateral and furniture, so Oxford storage is fast becoming a popular solution.

Last year Oxford was named as the least affordable city to live in, with house prices almost 11 times the salaries of those that lived there (Guardian, March 2014). With this is mind, those that want to move closer to the city, or to a surrounding area might have to consider a smaller living space. Our Oxfordshire storage facilities might be the answer to keep all your belongings together while you’re renting/purchasing a smaller place.

3. Time to sell?


It’s tempting for property owners in Oxford to sell their homes now, while the market is on the up, and move somewhere more affordable. Our temporary storage can help to stage homes for a quick and profitable sale.

4. London storage can be painful…


The traffic to get to a storage facility anywhere near London can get pretty ridiculous, particularly at peak times of day. Our storage space in Oxfordshire means an easier drive – with good road links from major cities (including the big smoke). Trains are also pretty good, with a fast, direct service to London from most large Oxfordshire rail stations.

As demand for Oxford storage grows, House and Carriage are here to help, with our self-storage and business storage facilities. From just £11 per week, you can keep your valuables, store your office spares and hold your homeware in a safe place, in an ideal location, close to Oxford and the surrounding areas.
