Your Storage Questions Answered

Investing in self-storage can seem complex if you’ve never done it before. That’s why we’ve gathered some of the top questions we get asked in order to give you a better understanding.

What type of storage unit do I need?

There’re many different factors that determine what kind of storage unit you may need. You may need the unit to be ground floor accessible if you are storing large items like furniture and so you may want to invest in indoor storage, to keep your furniture protected and clean. If you’re wanting to drive right up to your storage unit, or access it 24 hours a day, then you will want to invest in an outdoor storage unit.

What storage unit size do I need?

The size you need for your storage unit completely depends on how much you are wanting to store! We have an estimator on our website which will help you understand the size unit needed. Just pop in the selection and quantity of items you want to store, and we will do the rest. The estimator will help give you an idea of how many boxes and non-packed items that you can fit into each storage unit too.

Our indoor storage units come in sizes ranging from 25 to 200 square foot, and our outdoor units come in sizes of 10x8ft, 15x8ft and 20x8ft.

Do the units come with alarms? Will I need to provide a lock?

All of our units are locked to a high standard of security, however if you want to bring your own padlock, you are welcome to do so. All the units are also alarmed and there is CCTV on site at all times in order to keep your possessions safe. We can provide insurance if this is needed. This covers you for up to £250,00 worth of goods.

How do I pay for a storage unit?

If you choose to invest in a storage unit with us, we require a month deposit upfront. Following on from this, you can pay for your storage unit monthly via cheque, debit card or bank transfer. You may wish to set up your payment as a standing order if this is easier for you!
