    Residential storage is a growing trend for homeowners who need extra space for their belongings. Whether you are downsising, decluttering, or just need a place to store your items, residential storage offers a convenient and cost-effective solution. In this guide, we’ll explore everything you need to know about residential storage, including the benefits, types of storage options, and how to choose the right facility for your needs.

    Benefits of Residential Storage

    Extra Space

    One of the biggest benefits of residential storage is that it provides you with extra space to store your belongings. If you’re downsizing, remodelling, or just need to declutter your home, residential storage can help you free up space in your home and make it feel more organised and functional.


    Residential storage can be more cost-effective than other storage solutions, such as renting a larger home or buying a storage shed.

    Convenient Location

    Our residential storage facilities are conveniently located near residential areas in Staffordshire, making it easy to access your belongings when you need them.

    Climate Control

    Our residential storage facilities offer climate-controlled units, which can protect your belongings from extreme temperatures, humidity, and other environmental factors.

    Enhanced Security

    Our residential storage facilities offer enhanced security features, including 24/7 surveillance, gated access, and individual unit locks. This can give you peace of mind that your belongings are safe and secure.

    Types of Residential Storage

    Self-Storage Units

    Self-storage units are the most common type of residential storage. They are typically located in large storage facilities and come in a variety of sizes, from small locker-sized units to large units that can accommodate the contents of a house. You typically have access to your unit during the facility’s operating hours and can rent the unit for as long as you need.

    Portable Storage

    Portable storage is a convenient option for those who need to store their belongings temporarily. With portable storage, a storage container is delivered to your home and you can fill it with your belongings. Once you’re ready to move, the container is picked up and taken to a storage facility for you.

    RV and Boat Storage

    If you have an RV or boat, you may need a place to store it when it’s not in use. Many residential storage facilities offer RV and boat storage, with options ranging from covered storage to outdoor parking.

    Amazing service!! Without James and his team, my move probably wouldn't have happened. They got me out of a tight spot at really short notice thanks to solicitors not exchanging contracts until 4 days before my move Extremely professional set up from the minute they arrived, throughout the whole day up until they left. They took great care with my furniture and other possessions and so skilled In getting everything into my brand new build property without causing any damage. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone needed a professional, reliable and caring removals firm at a very reasonable price. For anyone moving in and around Staffordshire Moving Circles are the 👌

    Couldn’t fault the service provided by Moving Circle Removals. We couldn’t be happier with the communication and value for money for a move of some distance. Thankyou

    James & team recently helped us move house - we cannot fault the service and would highly recommend. James was really professional from the outset and also very flexible when our completion date kept moving around (unlike many other removal companies). The team that turned up on the day to support the move was also great - efficient and worked really hard throughout the move day. Moving Circles was also highly competitive in their pricing. Thank you Moving Circles - would definitely work with your team again in future!

    We used Moving CIrcles for our recent move and I am so glad that we did . From the very first consultation right through to the actual move, I cannot fault the service that we received. The guys that did the move were very friendly and professional throughout, nothing was damaged and everything was put where we asked. I would highly recommend James and the team who certainly went above and beyond to ensure a smooth move. Thank you so much.
    How much do movers cost for a two bedroom apartment uk?

    How much does a removal service cost when moving flat? On average, the removal cost for a 2 bedroom flat will usually cost somewhere in the range of £315 and £500, plus VAT.

    How much do you tip movers?

    A good rule is to give £20-£25 to each person from the moving team for a half-day. If they have been working for the entire day, it might be reasonable to give them £40 to £50 for their efforts. A little extra would be nice if they have been taking heavy items up and down the stairs.

    What is the most expensive day to Move?

    Tuesday is the most expensive day to move house. If you're choosing your moving date primarily for financial reasons, then Sunday is the best day to move house for you. Book your removal company in advance and compare removal companies to ensure you're getting the best possible deal for your removal costs.
