& Van, says: ‘There is a notion that self-storage is cheap but until now,
it hasn’t been. People underestimate how much they need and the advertised
prices are usually for a space no bigger than the size of a phone box.


‘Some self-storage companies will offer a

after this introductory period.’

cost £17 plus VAT per week for the same amount of space. more at

opportunity for people to carry out what we like to call an ‘audit’ of
essentials – and look at what they really need as opposed to what they really

“Just last year a study found that the UK’s homes are filled with junk

items, with belongings such as laptops, handbags and old mobile phones the most
