This is ideal if you’re moving home and need a temporary storage solution or staying put and need extra space around the home. Self-storage offers security, convenience, and flexibility, allowing individuals to declutter, downsize, store seasonal items, or hold belongings during moves or life transitions.

    Frequently asked questions

    Think about what you need to store, the amount and size. Measure larger items and consider how much square foot is required. To help, a 20-foot self-storage 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. If you’re unsure what size unit to look for or what certain square footage compares to, please speak to the property’s centre manager, who will be happy to help. They may suggest visiting the site and viewing a few units to help you visualise the space.

    In most instances, yes. Our sites offer secure 24-hour access, seven days a week. Please always check with the individual site to see when you can access your storage unit.

    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.

    The average self-storage price in the UK can vary depending on several factors, such as size, location, length of use, and even the value of your goods.

    No. Storage units are not approved for occupancy and cannot be used as an office. Not only is this for insurance reasons, but most storage units will not have plug sockets, natural lighting or Wi-Fi, making them inhabitable. You, therefore, cannot legally register a self-storage unit as a business location, nor can you or your employees work from it as an official office space.

    Self-storage facilities can store many items, whether for personal or business use. Personal belongings could include furniture, appliances, boxes, vehicles, and seasonal items. Commercial items can include equipment, tools, stock even documents. It’s important to check specific facility guidelines regarding any restrictions on hazardous or illegal items.
