We have thought of a few questions you might like to know the answers to, and put the answers here for you to look at… if you have anymore questions please just pick up the phone, we’ll be happy to help.

Our Storage Containers have a floor space of  160sqft. That is roughly the size of a single garage and if its well packed you could fill it with the contents of an average 2 bed house, or it would easily store the contents of a large student bedsit.

Try this storage calculator if you want to visualise how much space you need:

We currently only have one size of unit. It is an 8ft x 8ft x 20ft container and it can’t be split.

This size of container will provide enough storage for a average size 2 bedroom property. It is roughly the size of a single garage.

If your storage needs exceed one container and you feel you need another we will of course be happy to provide it.

Reception Hours – Mon- Fri 9am til 4pm & Sat 10.00am til 12.00 pm

Once you are set up with your storage area, access is available to the site and your container 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We would, however, ask you to always be mindful of our neighbors when accessing your unit at unsociable times.

We offer the following payment options; Your first payment can be made by bank transfer, cheque or cash. Ongoing payments should be made by direct debit.
We do not provide you with a padlock. That is something we would ask that you provide yourself, that way we can both be sure that only you has a key and access to your unit.
