Make money from your Spare room

Ways CB Self Storage could help boost your income and/or give you an extra room!


Renting rooms in Cambridge commands a weekly rental income of £100+ this, in comparison to storage which costs between £20 and £40 a week, means that over a year you could turn your spare room into £4,160 worth of income!!

My inspiration for this blog post came from a couple from Trumpington that put the contents of their loft into self-storage, then convert their loft space into two bedrooms which they rented out to students from abroad. While still being able to access the items stored from their loft whenever they need them from their 24/7 access self-storage unit.
Even better, the couple, managed to let out the rooms on airbnb during the Christmas and Summer vacation periods, when the rooms were empty. The couple anticipate that they will draw an income of nearly £10,000 a year, that is after deducting the cost for self-storage!

If you are looking to use self-storage to free up some space in your house to have a lodger, CB Self Storage is there to help you, we allow you to access your items 24/7, we also fix our rates so that you have the ability to project the savings you will make by renting out a room in your house.

Run out of room in your house? Why move to a bigger house?

A simple check on Rightmove shows you that to move from a 3-bedroom house to a 4-bedroom house in, for example, Arbury, could cost you between £100,000 and £150,000. Why not just rent a CB Self Storage unit instead to store your seldom used items……Christmas decorations, camping gear, sporting items, books, toys, garden furniture, spare bikes, etc. and free up that much need space?
