Top 3 Tips for choosing a storage provider

Here’s Storage World, Manchester’s number one storage facilities 3 top tips for choosing the right Self Storage Provider…

    1. LOCATION – Which is the most convenient location – It sounds simple right, the one closest to home but think about your daily commute and when you’ll need to access your storage unit most as it may just be you work in Manchester city centre and for eample you may drive past or very close to Storage World 5 days a week, twice a day not to mention if you could gain some time in your day by going at lunchtime to get the item you need at home that evening!


  1. THE FACILITY – There are many different types of Self Storage in the UK and Manchester is no different so in order to make an informed decision in terms of what is right for your particular items, you need to be aware of these options as follows:
    • Warehouses – This type of storage offered by places like ourselves here at Storage World are either modern purpose built large buildings or converted older buildings with sectioned off rooms of differing sizes to suit most requirements. These facilities offer the best security, good locations, they’re clean and well run and easily accessible. Usually more expensive than the alternatives, where they win is the additional benefits as described above which is basically peace of mind.
    • Containers – Usually a bunch of shipping containers sat outside in a secure yard or compound. Clients visit the compound to retrieve items from their container. Containers can be cheaper to rent however they are left to the elements and extremes of temperature plus as they are outside, security is still a factor.
    • Lock-Ups – These are basically garages that are rented out for storage and can be accessed easily however the lock on the door may be the only security they have
    • Furniture Depositories – Usually spacious warehouses where movers offer to store items for the customer in normally secure and good storage conditions. The downside to this type of solution is that accessing your belongings is either very difficult or sometimes impossible and there may be charges per visit plus the warehouses can be quite remote.


  2. SECURITY – Here is probably the biggest and maybe to many the most important question when storing away from their home and that is, how do I know my belongings will be safe.

We can’t speak for all providers but we can speak for ourselves here at Storage World and we agree security is of paramount importance when deciding to store your possessions in a Self Storage facility.

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

Alex Jones

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!

Ed Green-Moore

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.

John O'neill

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.
