Simple - Easy - Affordable - Storage from Alan Cook

1st August 2017

Alan Cook Removals offers more than traditional home moving services. In the last few years we have expanded our operation to now accommodate two storage centres based in the East of England. These are great for your domestic needs and offer a huge degree of flexibility and function that you can't get from your home. So why should you be considering storage from Alan Cook?

Home and Moving Storage

One of the most common usages of storage is for excess goods and items such as furniture and clothing that you simply cannot house in your home any more. If you are moving from a large home to a smaller home or one without attic space you can often be surprised at the sheer amount of goods you have collected over the years. Make use of storage facilities to house your belongings till you have time to sort through them and send your unwanted items to charity shops or place them on eBay or Etsy.

Collections and Hobbies

There are many people out there who love to collect for the sheer love of collecting. Not every train set manic has a model of Paddington in their study and there are those who love to leave things in their boxes for years to come. If you start running out of places to keep your ever-expanding collection, then the security offered by professional storage solutions could be a great help. Whilst the garden shed may only be as good as the lock you have put on the door, CCTV and manned security will protect your precious finds at a professional storage facility.

Running a Business

You may have read our recent blog that advises you on effectively running a business out of storage. If you are looking at capitalising on opportunities offered by the emerging global markets. Stash large amounts of different commodities and valuables in your professional storage facility and then bag them up for sending on an individual basis to local customers. This can be an excellent way to supplement your income and could even be enough of a business boost to allow you to leave your job.

Travelling Youths

When you're young you don't want anything tying you down. Especially not a mortgage and a regular home, but this doesn't mean you don't have a number of precious belongings, pictures, furniture, books and keepsakes. If you're going abroad, travelling for a year or more then the last thing you want to do is pay rent on a room simply to use it for storage - so why not gather all your stuff up and place it into storage for as long as it needs be, patiently awaiting the day you return home.

Storage from Alan Cook is fast, easy and incredibly flexible. With most units now offering round the clock access and security systems that are directly linked to the local authorities, you simply cannot go wrong for the price.
