Our Frequently asked questions

Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions, including:

  • Why use self-storage?

There are many reasons that people use self storage. For most people self storage is the solution to the problem of not having enough space, or that they prefer to use the space they have differently, for example you may wish to free up your garage space to store your car. Another reason could be if you are moving house and there is a time lapse between the buying or selling process.  Perhaps you are downsizing or maybe your house is undergoing a reform and you want to protect your valuables from dust or paint. Many people use self storage because they need more space in their office. Yet other people simply want to remove clutter their houses, and use the opportunity of renting a private storage space for this. 

  • How does Darrmar Self Storage Work?
