Jean and his wife called us to get a storage price for the content of their 3 room appartment for a few months. They said they only look at the price. We answered that StoragePal is less expensive than a traditional self-storage unit and sent them a comparative price offering with Shurgard to get them to know the exact difference:
Jean and his wife did not want to make an inventory, didn’t know how many boxes they were going to store, and they simply didn’t have the time! But this means refusing considerable savings! We told them that the order could naturally be adjusted during the collect or during the drop-off of their goods. Knowing how many cartons you are going to store is as easy as determining the unit size you need.
This is the simplest solution: count the number of furnitures and divide by its typical percentage following:
– Little cluttered = 90% of boxes and 10% of furniture
– Cluttered = 70% of boxes and 30% of furniture
– Very cluttered = 60% of boxes and 40% of furniture
Example: Cluttered = 70% cartons and 30% furniture
Counting the progressive withdrawal of furniture that is practiced by our other customers, Jean and his wife will save 2762€ compared to a fixed unit price in Paris (the reference here is a 28m² unit plus a 17m² unit, because the correct size isn’t available).
2726€ of savings and a free collect (because they intend to stay for more than 3 months). Their online space allows them to order returns from 15€ on (and avoid handling, going to and from a storage unit, injuries, muscle pain…)
