Let’s just face it, we all need more space! Houses & flats in Cambridge are getting smaller and smaller. Whether it be in our home or work lives, CB Self Storage can provide you with a fantastic, cheap self storage option to de-clutter your life! Whether it is excess furniture, a large train collection, tools, or files that you need to keep for accounting / business reasons, self storage is often the best way to make that extra room you desire.
1.Get a head start when moving to a new house.
It can be worrying, and frustrating, if you are stuck in a long house selling chain. Why not avoid being the one breaking the chain by putting your items into storage, at CB Self Storage, and vacating your property early? This might require you to arrange alternative accommodation, but often it gives you a big advantage in securing the house move.
If you are buying your first house and you are in rented accommodation, often it’s a good idea to give notice a few months before, put your items into self storage and move in with friends or family. You can then use some of the money you would have spent on rent to buy some items for your new house!
2.Do you have a Big collection of items?
Whether you have a collection of trains, pottery, vinyl records, even Daleks, self storage in Cambridge is fantastic for looking after your items. CB Self Storage, Cambridge is safe and secure, with CCTV that is monitored externally 24/7. And you can check on it any time you want, with FREE 24/7 access, meaning you can carry on expanding your collection portfolio without the worry of running out of room, or the collection being left in an insecure area of the house.
3.Store your sports, hobby, holiday equipment.
Many of us now play sports that require big bulky equipment, just look at the size of cricket pads now compared to 40 years ago, not to mention golf or fishing gear!

With 24/7 access you can just come and pick your sporting kit up whenever you need it, and return it when you have finished, whether weekly, monthly or yearly!
CB Self Storage’s conveniently located units are also great for seasonal hobby items such as skis, snowboards, bikes, canoes/ kayaks, camping gear, and fishing equipment. And what about those gardening tools and garden furniture cluttering up the garage in the winter?

4. Redecorating? Renovating? Building a house or business extension?

5. Are you thinking about down-sizing to a smaller house/ flat?
Are you thinking of down-sizing in Cambridge? Maybe your children have left the family home and you think it’s time to release some equity to enjoy, but can’t imagine where you will store all the ‘important’ items they have left behind but ‘might need one day’, such as beds, college books or the old family cot, or that item of furniture which has been passed down through the family and you want to keep, but it just won’t fit in your new home?
This is where CB Self Storage can help, you can rent a large self storage unit for all your items, then once you have sorted through them and decide which you really want to keep, you can down size to a smaller unit. That way you only store the things you just can’t see yourself ever parting with. With storage in Cambridge you can store the items you care about and know they are safe, for as long as you want.
