The Full Guide to Crate Storage


It’s no secret that there is a storage problem in the country. Houses are being built smaller and smaller as mortgage prices and rent shoot up. Many are forced to downsize or co-share houses to afford it. Owning a house or a flat for yourself is a luxury. Unfortunately, this leaves a big problem — where does stuff go?

Storage space is a quintessential part of any house. You need to have space for all of your items or else, everything will be in the way. You want a designated area where you can carefully store stuff without them getting damaged.

This is where Henfield Storage comes in. Crate storage is a viable storage solution that can help keep your clutter at bay. We provide high-security, low-cost, crate storage services in London and across the South East of England.

What to Store in Crate Storage

Crate storage is the perfect storage solution if you’re storing items for a long, long time, and I’m talking years here. If you’re going to take items out every week, then a storage facility may be a better option for you. Crate storage is more suited for items that you won’t look for in years. Here is a list of items you can store in crate storage. Note that this is just an initial list. Your site manager will still have the last say.

  • Tools & Equipment
  • Photo Albums
  • Baby Clothes
  • Baby Toys
  • Books
  • Documents
  • Spare furniture
