Whatever you need to store – from furniture to tools, collectibles to stock – our secure, affordable and flexible lock up storage solutions are just what you’ve been looking for.

Ideal for both individuals and businesses, our indoor units and outdoor storage containers come in a variety of sizes to suit your needs. Whichever you choose, you can store your stuff with complete peace of mind: we have security staff on-site at all times, with an extensive network of CCTV cameras to keep your items safe.

Flexibility is another key attribute of our services. Instead of locking you into a contract you can’t break out of, we’ll let you cancel at any time. This is storage as it should be.

Lock Up Self Storage Tips

  • Organise and label: Before you move everything into your unit, we’d recommend organising it and packing it neatly. Labelling each box with the contents is always a good idea – it’ll make life much easier when you need to retrieve something from your unit.
  • Pick the right containers: Different containers are suited to different items; storing books is quite different to storing clothes, for instance. Take a look at our Advice Hub for more information, or speak to a member of our team for help choosing the right containers.
  • Invest in a secure padlock: Make sure that only you have access to your unit by adding a secure padlock. We can supply a range of different models to fit your budget!

Frequently Asked Questions

We would highly recommend taking out insurance on your items – our insurance will not cover them should anything happen. If you have home and contents insurance, they may already be covered, so this is worth checking first. If not, we can help you arrange cover.

As often as you like! Three access options are available: during regular opening hours, extended hours (from 6am to 8pm, every day) or 24/7 access. However, you can visit your unit as often as you like during the hours you select. .
