It’s been a busy summer here in Carlisle, Cumbria. What with the stamp duty cuts having a positve impact on the property market, there appears to be an influx of people moving to the area from all over the country. We think more and more people are starting to re-evaluate their lives as a result of the covid situation.

Which brings us to self storage. If you’re relocating here, how about deciding on the right self storage operator? This could be as a temporary measure until you’ve moved into your new home, or a more longer term scenario if you need self storage for business use.
