Why People Use WH Cox for Storage in Surrey

For many people, finding extra space at home or in the workplace is difficult without upgrading to a larger property. And for most people, that’s not possible due to the costs. Moreover, many people love their home, but they collect a vast amount of possessions with every passing year. Before you know it, the garage is full, the loft is unusable, the shed is off-limits, and you’re using the spare room as your last storage space.

There is a solution for people who need to create more space in Surrey at their homes or office. At WH Cox & Son, many of our customers use us for their storage needs. In addition to giving you more room at home or in the office, it’s also an excellent way to safeguard your valuables from theft or damage.

Reasons Why People Use Us for Storage in Surrey –

The WH Cox team like to get direct feedback from our customers, and we always discuss why they use our services. The reasons why people use storage vary, but the common thread is always the security it offers. Many have valuable possessions that they don’t want to keep at home. Some have had previous bad experiences of damage and theft, and they no longer take chances with their expensive belongings.

There can sometimes be delays in moving dates for people who are moving to or from Surrey. Rather than cancel the purchase of your new home, you can use WH Cox’s storage units to store your possessions. Some people also like to keep their furniture for future use if they purchase new items when redecorating.

Surrey’s local companies use us when they need more space for stock or materials surplus. Like Christmas and Easter, supermarkets and other businesses run out of room in their warehouse at peak periods. By using WH Cox, they can find an easy solution without committing to a long-term contract.

Other WH Cox Services to Compliment Storage –

WH Cox & Son has a range of services to suit everyone’s needs. We’re known as Surrey’s best removals and storage company, and we have a variety of vehicles to suit every type of removals job. Whether it’s a small local move or a relocation to another part of the country, we have the right removals package for you.

We relocate people in Surrey and all over the UK, and we often move people to Europe and further afield. WH Cox has removals and storage packages to suit everyone’s needs, and we believe that removals and storage should be available to all, which is why we keep our prices as low as possible. WH Cox & Son are part of the Master Removals Group. Our reputation for being Surrey’s favourite moving and storage provider stems from our high level of customer service.

WH Cox covers the whole of Surrey, Middlesex, and we do a lot of removals from people moving from London. Because we’re situated outside of London, we’re able to offer the same level of service you’d receive from a London-based company but at much lower rates. Our team has extensive knowledge of the areas we cover, and we plan each detail with our customers to make sure we fit around their schedule.

Business Storage and Removals Available –

WH Cox & Son works with hundreds of business customers every year. We regularly do office removals for companies of all types and sizes, including SMEs with a few people and multinational corporations with over a thousand employees. It’s vital that we build close relationships with our clients because we hope they use us again for future service needs.

The WH Cox team know all about IT migration and transporting expensive equipment. We work with IT specialists who understand how to safely uninstall and handle sensitive computers and IT systems without causing any damage. Crucially, they know how to plan and execute a complete IT migration and will work with any IT team you employ.

Our job is to reduce the stress of your office move and transport everything carefully. This includes suitable packing materials to make sure there is no damage. We can also stagger your business relocation over several days or weeks by using business storage. This is sometimes necessary for companies who need to keep operating until the last minute.

We Can Collect Your Items with Man & Van –

You might be reading this blog and recognising how beneficial storage can be for your current circumstances. Then you realise that you don’t have access to a large enough van or car. Unfortunately, many people will then change their minds and won’t pursue storage any further. The good news is that it’s possible to arrange with our team to collect your items.

WH Cox & Son has a broad selection of services, and this includes a Man & Van service. We often use this package for collections and deliveries for local businesses. And it’s as useful for household customers who don’t have a suitably big vehicle to load and transport their possessions to our branch to store.

The best part is we can guide you through an assessment process and take over the entire task. That includes creating an inventory of your possessions, packing everything into suitable boxes, and transporting your belongings back to our storage facilities. You’ll then have a list of your items for ease of reference if you’re looking for them later.

Declutter and Create a Home Inventory –

We’ll now consider how you can open more space in your home by reducing clutter and organising your living areas. While decluttering isn’t everyone’s favourite subject, it’s an excellent way to get rid of things you rarely or never use. And we’re all a bit guilty of keeping things when they’re no longer of use and are taking up room in your garage or loft.

We’re also suggesting you use this opportunity to catalogue your belongings with a home inventory. It’s possible to do with a pen and paper list or a digital Word or Excel document. However, there’s a more modern option in the form of a mobile app. You can download a free or cheap app for your iPhone or Android. The typical features will allow you to save images of each item when you save them.

You can declutter in a sustainable way that doesn’t involve throwing away piles of black bags in the bin. Wherever possible, you can reuse and repurpose anything that might have a new purpose. Think of things like old food packaging as alternative storage containers or pencil cases. Anything in decent condition can be sold or donated to a local charity. You can then use one of Surrey’s numerous recycling points for the rest.

Look for Quality Policy and BAR Compliance – 

When you look for a storage provider in Surrey, it will help to do your homework to find a reputable company. This involves seeking at least three quotes so that you have a range of prices to compare. However, we’re also suggesting you weigh the costs with customer service. At first, this might sound tricky to gauge if you’re new to using self storage.

Most companies have an online presence in the form of a website and possibly social media pages. This tends to mean they’re live on Google, and you’ll also find ratings and reviews for them. You’ll have access to their overall score out of five and testimonials from previous customers. That means you can get a general idea of what service you can expect to receive.

You can then do some further digging to see if each prospective company has a Quality Policy in place. These policies provide another level of accountability and a management system that controls the quality standards. BAR is the industry accreditation for the removals sector, and it’s the gold seal for any credible removals and storage business in the UK.

WH Cox & Son – We’re Surrey’s Favourite Storage and Removals Company –

Storage is a vital option for people who need the additional security it provides. Most houses and flats aren’t built with the same level of protection a storage unit can offer. One of the biggest offenders when it comes to damage is damp conditions, which is present in most homes. At WH Cox, our storage units keep out the elements, and our security measures safeguard your possessions from theft.

Storage is not just about excellent security measures. When you book a storage unit with WH Cox, you’ll be creating lots more space at home or the office. You can put your car back in the garage or convert one of the rooms in your house. If you’re using us for business storage, you can store your archive filing cabinets.

People from all over Surrey use our storage facilities and often recommend us to their family and friends. There is nothing more satisfying than asking a new customer why they chose us, only to hear that one of our customers made a referral. Providing the highest level of customer service is our number one priority, in addition to making our storage packages affordable.

WH Cox & Son has earned its reputation for being Surrey’s favourite moving company through our customers’ hard work and dedication. Click here, and we’ll assess your storage requirements, resulting in a free quote.
