How Fort Locks Can Save You Money

It doesn’t matter if you’re a business owner or a private individual, sometimes money is tight and then we’re all looking to make extra savings or find a way to earn additional income. So here’s one idea that might help you save money*.

Create extra space in your home… and then rent it out!

Renting out a spare room in your home doesn’t just earn you extra income. You can actually do so tax-free! The Rent a Room Scheme lets you earn up to a threshold of £7,500 per year tax-free from letting out furnished accommodation in your home. This is halved if you share the income with your partner or someone else. You can let out as much of your home as you want.

So why not clear out that spare room and offer it for rent? You can generate additional cash by selling items you no longer need, or you can give them away. Anything you want to keep you can store with us, safe in the knowledge that we’ll give it room for as long as you need us to.

Storing anything with us is easy, and we’re very straightforward and friendly to deal with. You rent as much space as you need (we have 5 sizes, so there’s sure to be something which suits your requirements) and you can keep it for as little as 7 days or for as long as you need…. And we have special offers and deals to help you save even more.

Leaving your belongings with us is equally easy. Drive up, unlock your unit and fill it with anything that doesn’t fit into your home. And should you need it in between times, then it’s good to know that you can have access to your storage unit 24/7.

If you’re thinking of letting a room in your home and need to find a temporary home for some of your belongings, then why not come and talk to us? We’re Fort Locks. We’re right in the centre of Banbury. And we’re ready and happy to help.
