Warehouse Self-Storage is the natural successor to lock-ups, and then some!

In recent years, a great deal of lock-up garages have been knocked down to make way for new residential developments in the Manchester area. This type of storage has traditionally been used by ordinary people to store items in bulk. During its heyday, lock-ups were used for everything from freeing up space to storing items while the owner moved house. But what is the modern equivalent of a lock-up? We believe that purpose built warehouse Self Storage is the natural successor to lock-up garages, however far more comprehensive in what it offers.

Let’s create a picture of what a lock up might have looked like? Perhaps two rows of garages where kids played football? Some well maintained and used, others in a poor state of repair? A place the you only ventured if you had to?

We specialise in this type of storage. Our facility is divided into a wide range of rooms so we can match our client’s different needs. If you’re looking for a contemporary, convenient storage solution, we believe that you’ll be delighted by our clean, accessible warehouse units. But why is warehouse Self Storage so suitable for today’s storage users and how does it build on the legacy of lock-up Self Storage?

Modern storage users often need to store high-value items and delicate electronic items. This means that they need a storage solution that is fit for purpose, both secure and of the correct environment. Old-fashioned lock-ups were secured using a tough, reliable lock and protected from the elements by a sturdy garage-style door. Whilst modern Self Storage units offer far greater levels of protection in an easy-to-maintain, clean interior environment.

Today’s storage users also need to access their possessions easily, and whenever they like. So selecting where to store is driven by convenience. Typically no further than a 3-5 mile journey from home or work is desired, so the Storage World Store on Ashton Old Rd covers most of the inner M60 and in particular City Centre Manchester and Eastern suburbs.

Are there any lock up’s left? We believe that we offer many of the same core benefits as lock-ups but in a very modern way.

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.

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.
