There are a number of factors to consider when planning to use self storage. Please see below answers to our most frequently asked questions.

If you require a removal vehicle to aid you with the transition of your items, we have a long-standing partnership with Reads Removals who will be happy to quote the removal of your commercial contents to our store. For more information, call us today or visit their website.

All of our facilities have protected locks and security, so you can have peace of mind regarding the safety of your possessions. We advise purchasing a padlock to secure your unit (available in store). These are handmade in the UK and are very strong.

If you’re storing commercial equipment or excess stock of considerable value, we would highly recommend purchasing insurance to cover the cost of replacement.

Many units are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This can be a convenient, cost-effective way for small businesses who need flexible access to their tools and supplies.

You do not need to give notice. 1st Access Self Store simply allow you to move in and out as you please. When you leave your unit, you will be required to sign an exit form so that we can check if you have any completed weeks left that can be refunded to your account.

We have storage containers ranging from 25 sq ft to 200 sq ft, where you will only pay for the space you require. You can view our Estimate Your Space guide or contact a member of our team for advice.
