Self-storage for travelling abroad and expats

Whether you’re away enjoying the expat life or the trip of a lifetime, being away is less stressful when you know your belongings are stored safely.

Self-storage makes sense for both renters and home owners who are travelling

  • If you rent a room or a home: it can be easier to put your belongings into self-storage than trying to find people to look after them while you’re away. Your possessions will be safe and secure and you won’t be imposing on friends or family.
  • If you own your own home: it can make sense to rent out your property and get some income from it while you are away. But you won’t necessarily want your tenants to have access to your possessions. Keep them safe in storage instead.
