How Much Access Do I Have With a Self-Storage Unit?

How Much Access Do I Have With a Self-Storage Unit?
  • Opening Intro -

    The good thing about self-storage units is that many of them will have 24/7 access.

    This means that you can make a snap decision any time of the day or night, as to whether you need an item in your home or it can stay in the storage unit.


These 24/7 timings are useful if you are, for instance, looking to move house to fit in with the timings of the whole event.

If you are specifically looking for 24 hour storages, then you can find these online to rent. There are many other factors to consider too, such as size, whether they are temperature and humidity controlled, how secure they are, and how local they are for ease of access.

We shall discuss here the kinds of access that self-storage units provide and the advantage of that access.

Moving House

A house move should not be dictated by anyone other than the persons making the house exchange, which can mean a chain of house buyers involved, and the lawyers involved in the legalities.

With a self-storage unit, it removes another factor affecting our timings because we can filter items between our old home and our new one at times that suit us.


When on your travels and you want to use a storage facility that is in sync with your plane journeys starting at all times of the day, you can have it. This means that last-minute decisions can be made regarding what items to take with you on holiday as you have 24-7 access at the ready.

Sudden Party

There will be some that act spontaneously and who will arrange a party at short notice. Buying the food will be easy when there are late-night supermarkets open, but it might not be so easy to accommodate everyone at short notice.

A solution is a self-storage unit that houses your surplus furniture, that you can have 24/7 access to. Guests will then always have something to sit on.

Any Sudden Decisions

If you suddenly decide that something you want for your home is inside the self-storage units, it is not a problem because it can be easily retrieved. The good thing about self-storage units is that they can be in local locations that are convenient for access.

This is then just as convenient as the fact they are open every hour of the day, in many cases. You can book an all-access kind of self-storage unit, so that you can have that same sort of easy access to your belongings.

A storage unit can always be accessible at whatever time of the day or night you are passing it. This means that you can combine going there with another trip, even if that was visiting friends during an evening.

You might have been discussing something that you wanted to change about your home décor and then thought of that item still in self-storage. You can retrieve it before the next day, as spontaneous decisions are possible with self-storage units.

Making the Most of the Hours

Self-storage units with 24/7 access allow you to work longer hours on a home makeover. You can work into the evening, during the weekend, or whenever you are wanting to get your house just how you want it.

It can take time to decide on how best to rearrange a house after a relocation or change of heart, and this can mean a whole weekend spent on the activity.

You will want to sort this before Monday morning, though, so that your household is then back to normality. The fact that a storage unit remains open for enough hours means that you can get things back in place before the next day.

Companies are offering self-storage as a solution for storing and moving items around. It is worth finding out about their costs and conveniences online.

It is good to know that there are a variety of situations that would benefit from self-storage with extended hours of opening, and even 24/7 access in many cases.

It is convenient and cost-effective to combine our trips to and from the self-storage unit with some other activity or meeting. We do not have to worry about what time it is, as long as we are ready to enter the self-storage unit that we have rented.
