Answering common questions about storage units at Storage World

Storage units can be used for a whole host of different reasons. Whether you are downsizing, have inherited a property or are a student heading home for the summer, storage units can solve all of your storage problems. Equally, they are just as important for businesses who need to move or have excess stock to deal with. As such, storage units are able to help you in a number of domestic and commercial situations.

However, there are occasions when people may be hesitant about using storage units, usually due to their lack of information about these storage facilities. As such, our professionals at Storage World have created this brief guide to answer the most common questions people have about self-storage.

1. How do I pack everything?

Packing your belongings in such a way that they will be easy to transport but also remain safe during transit can be a challenge, and finding places to buy a variety of packaging material is an extra hassle that you don’t need. However, at Storage World, we offer a range of packing and materials that can help you solve these problems. By providing archive boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, padlocks and wardrobe boxes all in one place, getting your belongings ready for your new self storage area has never been easier.

2. How safe is a storage unit?

Each storage unit is secured with its own unique lock, all of which have been designed to be extremely difficult for anyone without the correct key to access. In addition, the storage building itself is highly secure, with staff monitoring the security of the premises and utilising the best CCTV monitoring services, giving you peace of mind that your personal items are always safe.

3. How much space do I need?

It can be difficult to estimate precisely how much space you need for your items. No one wants to pay more than they need to for space they won’t use, but equally not having enough space will hinder your storage needs. We have created a size guide to help you find exactly what size best suits your needs (https://storageworld.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/Storage%20World-Room-Size-Guide.pdf), and our friendly advisors are always ready to offer advice and assistance.

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.
