Short Term Storage

Do You Need Short Term Storage?

With us, you won’t be locked into a contract. Simply pay monthly for your storage and cancel any time. You can keep hold of your unit for one month or a decade – the choice is yours.

Short Term Storage Tips

  • Disassemble furniture: Want to make the most of the space available in your unit? Disassembling furniture is a great way of doing just that. You’ll be surprised by how much you can squeeze in!
  • Catalogue everything: When you’re boxing items up or stacking them on top of one another, don’t forget to label boxes or write a list of what’s inside your unit. It’ll make life easier when you come to retrieve stuff.
  • Cover or box your items: Make sure you choose appropriate boxes or covers for your items. For example, we’d recommend covering furniture with dust sheets to keep it pristine, or storing books in damp-proof plastic boxes.

Why Choose 1st Access?

1st Access has been one of Peterborough’s leading short term storage providers since 1990. Our values now are much the same as they were back then, our aim being to provide secure, convenient and affordable services that you can count on.

Unlike many other providers in the city, we’re not part of a nationwide chain – we’re a family-run, independent business. Because of that, we recognise the importance of going the extra mile when it comes to customer service. We’ll always put your needs first and do all we can to keep your items safe and secure.

Talking of security, our units are covered by CCTV and security staff at all hours, giving you total peace of mind. We’re also big on convenience, which is why we offer a complete move in and move out service too.

So, if you need short term self storage in Peterborough and don’t want to compromise on quality, security or affordability, there’s only one name you need to know: 1st Access.
