How soon can I store my goods?

Once you have completed our online booking process and paid for your storage, you can begin storing immediately.

You will receive all the information regarding your site and unit in your confirmation email and SMS, which will outline how exactly to access your unit.

What size units do you offer?

We provide secure 20ft shipping container units that offer 150sqft of space for safely storing business and personal belongings. If you’re not sure if this provides enough space for your goods, please visit our Prices and Sizes page.

Will my goods be insured?

We require all those who store with us to have insurance in place, which we offer as part of our booking process for £8.68 (inc VAT) per £1000 of goods stored within your unit, per month.

If you do not need our insurance because you already have your own, please call us to discuss this and we’ll organise your storage accordingly.

How do I pay for storage?

Most providers offer storage on a contract basis, offering preferable rates for longer commitment periods.

Unlike others, we offer self storage on a rolling monthly subscription basis. You can cancel anytime, and you`re not locked in or punished for doing so.

Do you provide packaging and boxes?

Yes we do. You can find out more about this on our Packaging Materials page.

Is there a minimum term / contract?

Unlike other self-storage companies, we don’t tie you into long contracts. We operate on a subscription model, meaning you can leave us at any time without any penalty.

Since your storage is paid for a month in advance, cancelling your contract means no additional payments will be taken from the moment you cancel.

How do I access my unit?

To access your unit, make a note of your unit number and row, as well as address of your chosen site. This can all be found in your booking confirmation email and text.

Now, travel to the site gates for your site’s location. The map you’ve been sent will show you where your gate is.

Locate the key lockers and enter your key locker code – this will have been sent to you via email. Pull the black lever next to the numbers down to open. Remove keys and fob and close the key locker. Find your unit on the map next to the key lockers (by tag colour and unit number).

Locate fob reader – it looks like a number key pad next to the gate. Enter your code, wait for the gate to open, and enter. Now drive, walk or ride to your unit.

How do I access my container?

Our clean, dry and secure business storage units are ideal for storing business stock, tools and equipment, archive documents, surplus office furniture, occasional use exhibition equipment, stock for home based ventures, short term overspill stock, market traders stock, seasonal stock, etc. See more self storage solutions.
