How long has there been self-storage.

Like all history it is subject to some interpretation. We have been providing it in Ireland in its modern form since 1989. It has been operating in this form in USA since after the Second World War and it has been suggested that the original self storage was the provision by banks of facilities for adventurers who went off to locate new areas of the globe in the 15th to 17th centuries.

How can Self Storage Help me?

People are finding out daily how self storage can be used to facilitate a house move, put items off site while extending or redecorating the house and put away items until next season. Businesses are finding self storage is more flexible and cost effective than taking a long term commitment to a lease or using an unprotected garage or shed.
