There are a number of different types of storage (see explanation page) however Self-Storage is the most modern and versatile. Our facilities are converted into a series of individual units – much like a hotel.
Individuals or Businesses rent an individual unit/s that only they have access to as the unit is secured by their own padlock, n which they store goods, stock, equipment or furniture. Units are of varying sizes, selected based on the extent of items the customer is storing – we assist the customer to select the most appropriate. If new to storage we find customers often overestimate. So seeking the guidance of a Storage World adviser often saves our customers money.
We are open 7-days a week however closed on Bank Holidays. For individual opening hours, please check the pages of your preferred store.
Our smallest units start at £10 per week and increase in cost as the size of the unit increases. One thing to keep in mind is that as your needs change, you can transfer between units, which will increase or decrease the amount you pay.
All agreements are open-ended. We simply have a notice to vacate process. Self-Storage customers are required to provide us with two weeks notice of their planned vacation date.
Simply, as long as you want. Customers typically store for 6-months or longer, but some as short as 1-month. All we ask is that you provide two weeks notice when you plan to vacate.
We have a large number of different sizes available. The smallest are lockers that measure 5sqft. More typically 25sqft to 200sqft with heights of between 8 and 12ft. These units are suitable for all manner of domestic and business use.
es of course, providing we have availability of the size code you require, this can be same day. Many customers either start small and grow, or start with a larger unit and reduce as they remove items. When moving home, people often store all their belongings and then retain a smaller unit for low use items such as luggage, Christmas decoration, seasonal items like BBQ’s or sports equipment – mainly so their new home is clutter free.
It is advisable to reserve a unit ahead of your planned move-in date. Securing the unit is easy, establish the best room and rate for you and pay a £20 reservation which is fully refundable if you don’t move in, or deducted from your move in invoice when you do.
Customers can store anything they like, with specific exclusions such as firearms, chemicals, anything combustible, illegal substances, illegally obtained items or anything living or perishable. If in doubt, speak with a Storage World Adviser.
There are no additional rental charges. However, your goods must be fully insured. We work with you to establish the new for old replacement value of your goods, ensuring you have adequate protection. Your Storage Adviser will assist you in producing an inventory and liaising with you periodically in the event the items you are storing change. It is essential that all customers have adequate cover in place. The Storage World cover is underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance and designed specifically for the Self-Storage market place.
Our stores have been specifically developed for long term Self-Storage and are inspected in accordance with the Self Storage Association Guidelines. We review store standards twice daily and prohibit any items that are likely to cause mess or disruption to our facilities.

Other than the items you wish to store, we require photographic identification such as a passport or drivers licence along with proof of address such as a recent utility bill or bank statement. You will also need a padlock to secure your unit which we have available to buy in our box shop. You must also have payment for your first four weeks rent, security deposit and insurance. We also take your photograph and hold on record, making verifying identity in future straight forward.
It is advised that when changing your appearance (e.g. hair colour) that we update our records with a new photograph. This makes verifying your identity straight forward, especially if we have new or unfamiliar staff managing the store on the day of your visit.
When you first move in, we ask that you make payment by credit or debit card. For future payments we provide a direct debit mechanism for convenience.
All customers take a contents insurance policy underwritten by the Royal & SunAlliance. You provide an outline inventory of the items you are planning to store and a policy is put in place that protects against the new for old replacement value of your goods. In recent years there has been a number of internet businesses created to provide contents cover when in Self Storage, however due to the level of cover they provide and suitability we are unable to accept.
Our stores are open 7-days a week and you can access your unit at anytime and as many times as you need during our opening hours. Where essential, please speak with a Storage World Adviser who can explain how access can be provided outside our standard business opening hours.
Self Storage means that the unit is yours to use as you wish. Some customers move in and out in single visits, whilst others visit regularly. Should you require assistance with moving items, Storage World has relationships with professional Man & Van and Van Hire Partners which we can introduce you to. Once at store, we have free to use trolleys and lifts that make travelling from our loading bays to your unit straight forward and simple.
The short answer is as you would expect to find it, ready for the next customer. You must, of course, remove your padlock and perhaps give the unit a quick sweep.
No problem, your contract is extended and you provide us with an amended vacation date. You can stay as long as you want.
When you are fully vacated, any overpaid rental and your security deposit is refunded to your bank account on the following Friday.
Our offices are typically measured in floor space, from 100 to 400sqft. A typical office workstation is normally 50sqft and includes a desk, chair and filing cabinet. So a 100sqft office is typically suitable for 2-people.
Offices start at a rate of £50 + Vat per week, highly competitive when you consider a City Centre “hot desk” starts at £45 + Vat per week. Office customers also benefit from Free Parking and access to an upgraded superfast broadband connection for an extra fee.

We do not provide furniture within our standard costs. However, do have partners who can engage directly with customers and match their furniture needs with a highly competitive solution. Furniture tends to be personal, hence why we work with partners to provide. You can, of course, use your own.
All offices are provided with 24hr access if needed.

They are often located on the Ground Floor and near Loading Bays with access to electricity.

Secure Storage Solutions
Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
A Quick and Easy Process
Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company
Same Day Move In
Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!
Extremely Helpful Staff
Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.
Trolleys and Good Lighting
Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.
100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!
Business Self Storage
Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
