Things to remember

To enable you to move your belongings into your self storage room immediately, it’s important to remember the following:
  • Photo ID - passport or driving license.
  • Emergency contact details - name, telephone number and an e-mail or postal address for a contact not living at your address.
  • Completed inventory of items being stored - You’ll need to show this inventory when you move in (unless you’ve checked in online and completed the inventory in advance).
  • A padlock (or you can buy one in store).
  • Please arrive at the store at least 1 hour before closing.
  • Security deposit - Our terms of storage require a security deposit. This is usually the equivalent of one weeks’ storage fees and is refundable (along with any unused rent) after giving 7 days notice when you move out.
  • Initial payment - In addition to the security deposit, 4 weeks worth of storage fees are required in advance. This guarantees your 50% discount for up to 4 weeks. You will still get this discount if you store for less than 4 weeks - all we ask is you stay for a minimum of 7 days. Any unused rent is refunded when you move out. The inital payment must be by credit or debit card please. We cannot accept cash or cheque for payments
  • Please note that our preferred payment method is Direct Debit.
  • On-going payments - Once again, our preferred payment method is Direct Debit, which will be 4 weekly and in advance. We cannot accept cash or cheque for on-going payments.
  • Paying by Direct Debit - If you have not completed your direct debit details via check-in online, you’ll need to provide a recent bank statement or valid cheque book upon your arrival to the store so we can set up your direct debit.
  • Company ID - If you are the proprietor/director please provide proof such as a business card stating your title. If you are not the proprietor/director we need a letter from the business to confirm you have the authority to sign the Customer License on behalf of the company.

We wanted to store 3 small bags at the airport for 10 days. It was going to cost nearly 200 pounds so we were told about this storage company - a HUGE difference! We were relieved and the staff were excellent and helped up through the whole process
