The Storenextdoor Guide to Storage and Self Storage in the Birmingham area

As the second most populous UK city, Birmingham and its surrounding urban boroughs have a high demand for storage. Following the Industrial Revolution that brought the city from unknown British town to prominent player on the world stage, Birmingham is now a cosmopolitan hub of productivity and education with its thriving service-sector industry and academic and creative universities. This vast populace is fortunately met by an array of self-storage options, within the main city and the surrounding areas, which cater to a variety of storage needs.

Household and Business Storage

With the vast populous in mind, there are plenty of high security options available for general household items as well business and commercial use such as national chains, Big Yellow Self Storage, Safestore and City Centre Storage, all within Birmingham city centre for convenience. Simple Storage Solutions offer 24 hour security and access within the city centre and Tyseley with prices starting from £8.40 per week.

Student Storage

With five universities and over 65,000 students, Birmingham’s students account for a large part of the city’s population and there are plenty of options for students moving away from home into small university residences. Companies such as Space Self Storage have student offers starting from £11.08 per week if you find yourself with limited room in halls of residence. Alternatively, students can pay a little more for very high security with Squirrel Self Storage from £15 per week, ensuring 24 hour surveillance. You may find yourself relocating property several times throughout university, so both these student storage spaces have no minimum stay.
