Secure and simple container storage to rent
Container storage is ideal for anyone wanting secure self-storage but with better vehicle access and more space for loading and unloading. Whether it’s for private or commercial purposes, container storage is perfect for storing personal belongings, furniture, equipment, stock, and tools.
What is container storage?
They are shipping containers. And they come in two sizes, 20 or 40 square feet. Storage containers are found in secure, accessible locations with much more space to drive up closer to your unit. This makes them ideal for anyone looking to store larger items or more volume that requires easier access to drop off or pick up.

Frequently asked questions
This will depend on your storage needs. Whether for personal or business storage, a 20-foot or 40-foot shipping container will provide ample space.
A 20-foot shipping container can provide approximately 150 square feet of space – giving you enough space to store the contents of an average-sized 3-bedroom house if packed correctly.
A 40-foot shipping container can provide approximately 300 square feet of space. As these are long containers, consider that you may only be able to access the very back of the container if you create a corridor (which takes up some space). 40-foot containers are generally preferred for storing large volumes of stock, which can be loaded and unloaded in bulk if they are on pallets.
20-foot and 40-foot container storage units are available monthly starting from as little as £149 + VAT. The cost can vary depending on the size of the unit and location.
The main differences between container storage and self-storage relate to access, size, cost and how you can load and unload items.
Self-storage units are ideal for personal storage and business storage. It’s usually self-access only, 24/7, and the units are housed indoors within a property. There are bays to load and unload, but these may be a distance from the units, meaning a short walk or the use of a goods lift to access your self-storage unit.
Container storage is ideal for larger amounts of personal and business storage, particularly light-industrial storage. As containers are stored in a secure compound or warehouse, access may be restricted to specific times. There is vehicle access, meaning you can drive up close to the container, making loading and unloading heavy items much more straightforward.
