Alternative Uses for a Wigan Storage Unit | SureStore Wigan

When you think of self-storage, you probably conjure an image of storage units packed with boxes and household items and little room for much else. Although an ideal home and business self-storage solution, our storage units at SureStore Wigan can be much more than a temporary shed away from home.

Take a look at these alternative uses for a Wigan storage unit and discover how you could transform your storage unit into a space to relax, work, or create.

A Creative Arts and Craft Studio

Our storage units can make a perfect space to be creative and indulge in arts and crafts.

With units up to 200sqft available at SureStore Wigan, you’ll find the ideal space to store your materials, tools and work station! Our self-storage experts can even arrange 24/7 access, so you’re able to express yourself any time day or night.

A dedicated arts and crafts studio could give you place away from home to paint, draw or make your masterpieces. You’ll also have the peace of mind that your possessions are safe and secure with our market-leading security systems and round the clock CCTV surveillance.

A Personal Gym

Avoid queues for gym equipment, sweaty changing rooms and over-priced membership fees, and convert your Wigan self-storage unit into a personal gym!

A work-out space of your own can help to improve motivation and establish a regular routine, so why not keep your weights, mats, treadmill or other gym equipment dry safe and secure with SureStore Wigan. There’s also the option to stream music while you work out, or follow a routine on Youtube using our free and unlimited Wifi.
