Personal and business self-storage in Edinburgh
Self-storage is a cost-effective, space-saving solution for home movers, tourists, and business owners across Edinburgh. Recent figures, compiled in an S1 Homes housing report, indicate a continued climb in Edinburgh house prices. The report, published in September, reveals that Scotland’s biggest average property price increase was in the capital city, with a 5% rise in sale prices.
These statistics can be interpreted as a trigger for the expanding self-storage market. As a leading self-storage company with facilities dotted around Edinburgh, Len Lothian Store & More provides a secure service which will appeal to a wide range of people with a variety of storage needs.
VisitScotland, the country’s tourism body, has reported that Edinburgh and the Lothians is, statistically, the most popular area for tourists. Additionally, in September, Edinburgh Airport handled almost one million passengers, rendering the transport hub the country’s busiest airport. An influx of tourists and a reinvigorated property market will necessitate a trustworthy base for baggage, furniture and household fittings.
An incremental rise in property selling prices throughout Edinburgh suggests a steady need for self-storage space. Home movers tend to place items into secure lock-ups until a move is complete and, commonly, storage units are rented out as homes for unused, but cherished, possessions or used as a solution for people who move abroad and require long-term furniture storage.
Len Lothian’s storage space capacity extends from 25 square foot lockers to a 36,000 square foot warehouse in Granton, one of the three storage bases located in the capital. Edinburgh attracts the highest visitor numbers, draws in the biggest tourist spend, and accounts for the largest hotel occupancy in Scotland. Therefore, with such a large annual intake of tourists, there is justifiable need for additional business storage space for overstocks; small businesses in need of document storage and larger corporations which require space for extra merchandise in the run up to the Christmas season are suited to affordable storage space rental.
Len Lothian Store & More’s secure storage service enables businesses to maintain efficient logistical control and undertake stock checks at convenient times. A family-owned business, Len Lothian Store & More’s friendly storage experts can guide you through the self-storage process and provide a service which reflects over 45 years’ accumulated expertise in the industry.
