Greater Manchester and burglary: Are your items safer in storage?

Greater Manchester can be a great place to live. In fact, there’s pretty much everything you could want right on your doorstep – from world-renowned theatres to highly decorated football teams. But like many other cities, there’s a downside that all residents should be aware of: burglary.

According to UK Crime Stats, there were 3,054 reported cases of burglary in December 2016. This figure is a new peak and indicates that the crime is only becoming more common in the district. The number of reported cases is set to reach new heights in the summer when the weather becomes warmer and people start spending more time outdoors.

So whether you own your own home or simply rent, you’re right to be worried about this trend. Instead of doubling up on locks and sleeping with one eye open, you should consider moving your most prized possessions to self-storage units. Here are just a few of the reasons why.


First and foremost, your valuables will be safe when locked away in self-storage. The units are protected by both internal and external CCTV, perimeter fencing, and access can only be granted to registered individuals. You’ll find that you can gain a huge amount of peace of mind from having your items kept here, rather than fretting about them every time you leave the house.


We have self-storage units located in both Manchester city centre and Middleton. This means that your belongings are never too far away should you need them at a moment’s notice.


Storage units are readily affordable. This means that you’ll likely be looking at spending less to store your items there than you would to bulk up the security around your home. Additionally, the cost of replacing your valuables in the event of a burglary could be in the thousands or even bump up your insurance premiums.

The answer you’re looking for

Sadly, it looks likes burglary will always be an unfortunate fact of city life for now. Therefore, make sure your most valuable belongings are hidden away somewhere safe in case you ever become a victim of burglary. Get in touch today to find out more information about our high-security storage units in Greater Manchester.

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.

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.
