Three iconic quotes that sum up living in Manchester

Greater Manchester’s spirit is alive and well – and locals tend to agree that the city is the best in the UK. But where did all this local pride come from? Perhaps it simply stems from people opening their eyes and seeing how the place is changing – what with all the new bars, restaurants, shops and self-storage units for everyone to take advantage of. Or it could just be that there’s a long history of people bragging about how fabulous it is to live Manchester. With this in mind, here are three of the best quotes that really hit the nail right on the head about life in Greater Manchester.

“Manchester’s got everything except a beach.”

Stone Roses singer Ian Brown once pointed out the obvious: there isn’t a beach in Manchester. Seriously though, who needs the sand and sea when you’ve got ‘everything’ else? Rocker Ian masterfully managed to sum up with these words how there’s always something to sink your teeth into in Greater Manchester.

“And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat, all the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets.”

Tony Walsh really captured the spirit of Manchester with his poem ‘This is the Place’. Despite the city’s modernisation and changing the landscape, it still firmly remains a place where dreams can come true – whether personally through the amazing social scene or professionally through all the work opportunities.

“This is Manchester, we do things differently here.”

Factory Records founder Tony Wilson could never find enough good words to say about Manchester. While he constantly promoted the city at every opportunity and realised it was a unique place to live, it’s this quote about ‘doing things differently’ that has stood the test of time. His words clearly reflect the ethos of local residents who aren’t afraid to break the mould, think outside the box and – most importantly – be themselves.

Manchester’s the place to be!

It’s clear that there’s something truly special about Manchester. Storage World’s self-storage units only serve to make life that much easier for people living here or moving to the city, meaning they can worry less about space and where to store their prized possessions and more about enjoying the city as a whole.


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.
Highly recommended.

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% Recommended

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!

Tom Daubney

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.
