Hanging on to your honey? You’re in good company…

Let’s start with the incredible adventures in CS Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia. These epic adventures start with a wardrobe made from the wood of a tree grown from an enchanted apple, taken from the land before Narnia and planted in English soil (now that’s provenance!). This dusty old wardrobe ends up in the spare room in a large country house, its latent magic long-forgotten. Twenty years later, the curious Lucy creeps inside and finds her feet crunching on thick snow of the enchanted Narnian forests.

Storage – daring to go where no man has gone before…

One storage location, shrouded in mystery, has cropped up in dozens of films and comics in the last 70-odd years – Area 51. It occupies a swathe of the Nevada desert and is imagined to be America’s vault for the unexplainable and the extra-terrestrial. The continued blanket of secrecy hiding the Area’s true function has led to it being central to UFO theories and other pop culture alien myths for decades.

Poppins, Mary: Practically perfect in every way…

Mary Poppins’ never to be forgotten carpet bag must go on the list, with its incredible depth (hat stand) and amazing contents, including an all-knowing tape measure.  And what about Paddington’s suitcase? Pressed into constant service, it is used to store bacon, to the delight of the local dogs; his scrapbook and a few marmalade sandwiches of course, just in case.

Anyone who has ever discovered a forgotten box of photographs, a packet of old letters or childhood exercise books will know the potent power of storage. And what about the joy of unpacking everything that makes home a home, when you’ve been renting a smaller place, or away travelling? Nothing could replace the milk jug you got when your parents packed up Granny’s old house and let’s not forget the money saved by keeping things to use again or hand down…

On a more practical note than Paddington Bear, many self storage customers, from Hampshire to the Highlands, use their units for all manner of purposes. If they aren’t moving house, they store seasonal sports gear or play equipment. If they are braving the housing market then lots of customers use the extra space to declutter before marketing their home. Some need support during exciting renovations when they need to protect their things from builders’ dust. Finally, others have grown up children, who have stored spare fridges and sofas, and are now preparing to furnish student houses up and down the country, along with that treasured guitar and the speakers that will never get a moment’s rest!
