Container Storage at Storage World

Storage World offers the perfect alternative to steel container storage, in ideal locations for you to store any personal or business possessions, no matter the size, in a safe and secure unit.

Often people opt for a steel container, also known as a shipping container, to store their goods because they’re a convenient way to keep excess storage locked up, and they provide a lot of space, so items can be added over time. However, container storage is not always the best option. In many cases, items stored in this type of container become subject to damage from factors outside of the storage provider’s control, such as temperature and weather and can even cost you more than renting a storage unit. 

Container storage Manchester

At Storage World, we provide a safer, cost-effective alternative to steel container storage at all three of our sites in Manchester, Middleton and Manchester Airport. While we offer units exactly the same size as typical steel containers, our storage facilities are far more robust to keep your items even more secure.

What makes a storage unit better, safer and cheaper than a typical steel container? 


The typical size of a steel container can vary from 150sqft to 400sqft and at Storage World, we can offer units in these sizes, and every size in between. What’s more, is that should you need to upsize or downsize if your storage requirements fluctuate, we make it quick, easy and of course, free of charge to do so, giving you greater flexibility than any other self-storage solution could provide.


Each of our units is securely housed internally in our storage facility, meaning that outside factors such as adverse weather won’t affect the items that you hold in storage. Our units are clean and dry, so whatever you’re storing, it is sure to remain in the exact same condition you left it in, no matter how long you store it for. We know that you’re holding onto these items for a reason, so we make it our utmost priority to ensure your items, whether valuable in monetary or sentimental terms, are kept completely safe. 


We have 24-hour security in place on-site so there is no threat of theft or vandalism coming to your items. We can also provide you with insurance options for the items that you’re storing, pointing you in the direction of our trusted insurers so that you can have complete peace of mind when you leave your items at our facility. 

High-quality storage solution

Our units are modern, and can even be used as an office or workspace with illumination, insulation and heating facilities. When compared to steel containers, it’s a no-brainer, especially when our storage units can work out cheaper (depending on the size you opt for) too. Much like steel containers, our facilities are available for you to access any time you need to with 7 days-a-week access and the option to choose a ‘drive-up’ unit. 


The prices of our storage units start from £10 per week and range from 25sqft to 400sqft with the flexibility to move to a smaller or bigger size as your needs change. There are no long term contracts, which means you’re free from the commitment that comes with buying or renting a steel container.


Our team are on-hand at all times to help you with your self storage requirements, so whether you need to discuss choosing a unit, acquire out-of-hours access or simply need a hand getting moved in, we can assist you with any and all enquiries or needs to ensure you get the best possible experience out of your storage solution. We can also arrange for transportation of your goods to and from our facility should you require this. You’re never on your own when it comes to storing with Storage World.
