About 1st Access Self Storage

How We Aim To Help You

We provide safe and secure spaces for residents and businesses to store their unused or excess items. With comprehensive storage solutions and friendly staff that go the extra mile, you can count on us.

Where It All Started

A family-run and independent business, 1st Access began life in 1990 as the project of husband and wife duo, Paul and Susanne Fletcher. In its infancy, the business went under a different name, AAA – chosen so that it would be the first listing in the Yellow Pages directory!

Skip to 1993, and the business moved to Fengate and officially became 1st Access. Over the years, we’ve grown from a team of two to 14, and now offer a comprehensive storage solution for both personal and commercial customers. With our document archiving, self-storage units and containers, whatever you need to store, we can store it.

Based in Peterborough, we know the area like the back of our hand. With our wealth of experience moving and storing items in Peterborough, we understand people’s needs and expectations, and aim to exceed them. In fact, we’re proud to have maintained loyal relationships with our customers, with some trusting us to store their belongings for over 20 years.

To make your storage needs even easier to navigate, we’ve partnered with Reads Removals, a local removal team with almost 100 years in the business of safely moving personal items from A to B.

Personal Storage

Looking for somewhere to house your excess or unused personal items? Our personal storage, including self-storage units and containers, are secure and accessible 24/7.

Commercial Storage

Are you a business or organisation looking to store excess stock, equipment or important paperwork? Our fully secure and accessible commercial storage options are ideal.

Where are your self-storage facilities based?

Our storage units are located in Peterborough, at the following address: Unit 1, Darlows Est, Fengate, Peterborough PE1 5XB (just off the Frank Perkins Parkway).

Located in Fengate, we are just a short drive from Parnwell, Stanground and Eastgate. If you’re travelling from outside Peterborough, we are easily accessible from the A1.

How do self-storage units work?

Self-storage units enable you to keep personal and commercial items in a secure unit. These can be indoor or outdoor units. These can be accessed 24/7 and you only pay on a monthly basis, rather than signing up to a lengthy contract. Once you have your unique padlock, you will be the only one who can access your belongings. Apply for a quote with 1st Access today to see how much you can save.

How do you keep my items safe?

Importantly, we prioritise the security of your items with our 24 hour CCTV and security-trained staff. We also provide strong padlocks and optional insurance for extra peace of mind.

What self-storage services do you offer?

We don’t just provide a unit to store your items – we offer a comprehensive service that caters to all your requirements. From selling packing materials to providing a full move-in and move-out service, at 1st Access we’re all about delivering a convenient, hassle-free storage service.
