Self-storage you can really trust

U Can Store It was established in 2000 and we have built on our decades of container expertise to offer hassle-free self-storage to businesses and individuals of all kinds throughout the West Midlands.
The UK’s first fully online self-storage provider
We believe the “self” part of self-storage is too often overlooked. That’s why we created the UK’s first online self-storage booking process, allowing you to book a unit whenever it suits you. All you need is your ID, an internet connection, and a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Follow our simple to use booking process below to start storing your belongings in just minutes.
Get storing in 3 easy steps
1. Book a unit
Choose your site, verify your ID, and book your unit online.
2. Access your unit
We'll email/text instructions to you so you can access your unit on site.
3. Load & lock
Load your items and lock your secure container unit.
Whether it’s equipment for your business, or household items with sentimental value, having your items damaged or stolen can have very serious consequences and must be avoided at all costs.
We therefore invest heavily in security and put this at the heart of everything we do.
We use steel shipping containers with security padlocks that are encased in a tamper-proof shroud and located within a 24/7 CCTV monitored site that only allows customer access via a fob that is linked to you and your specific unit.
