What Not To Store

We are regularly asked whether we can accept certain items into storage. So, as a guide, let’s look at some of the items and categories that are either strictly prohibited or our experience tells us shouldn’t be accepted. The key reasons concern both safety and the effective storage possibilities. To be honest, very few of these will come as a surprise to you. The simple key is this – if you are ever unsure, please just give us a call.


So, sorry, you’ll just have to take the kids on holiday with you after all! You might well assume that no-one would ever consider leaving an animal of any kind in storage. “My snake will be fine there for a couple of weeks, I’ve just fed him” is therefore not a line you’d expect to hear! Live includes plants too, of course; we have enough trouble looking after the cactus on the office window sill. Just like Customs when you try to enter Australia, we also have to say “no” to the storage of any kind of foodstuffs.


This is the main – and most serious – category we are regularly asked about. For obvious safety reasons, both for the people working and visiting here, and to protect all that is stored, we can’t hold any of the following: any flammable, explosive or toxic substance, firearms and ammunition, and LPG cylinders or any other form of compressed gasses. You can add to this list any paints, thinners, petrol and oil. Rockets or any other types of fireworks are also of limits. Finally, any chemicals (especially any oxidizing agents) cannot be accepted either.


We know you’ll appreciate that all of the above is aimed at complying with the relevant legal, health and safety, and environmental, requirements. It also helps us to create a completely safe facility both for our own team, and for all the people who both visit and trust us with their valuable – and often treasured – items. So, we’d love to store for you, but please ask first if you are unsure about any items you want to place with us. Thanks!


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!

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.
