We don’t have much to store and what we do have isn’t very valuable. The valuable stuff that we do own will go to friends and family for the ten or so months that we are away. We have therefore, tried to keep the cost of storage to a minimum . It’s quite disheartening to know that you have to pay in the region of £500 per person the benefit of dumping your gear for ten months in a 100 sq ft storage facility. We were glad to find UFILL a storage solution that comes to you.
We saw some pretty murky, and in some cases shady storage facilities. There are a range of providers from top end, city centre storage warehouses with 24 hour security and access to farmers barns in the middle of the fen. UFILL tow a storage container to your house, you fill it, secure your own padlock and then UFILL come to take the container away. The same thing in reverse happens when you get back from your travels. We saved almost £200 each on our budget using this option. There is no need for us to hire a van because the container will come to us, saving further cost.
