More than self-storage in Manchester

4 Min Read

Here at Storage World we don’t just provide you with a storage unit and then leave you to fend for yourself (unless of course you would like us to!). We feel that using your storage unit should be a great and simple experience every time you enter, which is why we don’t just give you the keys and leave it there. Storage World takes the ‘self’ out of self-storage, providing an array of added services in order to help you use your storage facility to its greatest potential.

Storage World believes that every helping hand will allow moving into your storage unit become less of a chore and more of an enjoyable experience, which is why we offer you additional services should you require them.

Packaging Materials

The luxury of having packaging materials and moving equipment at your fingertips means there’s no need to spend a fortune on boxes and having the hassle of assembling these. At Storage World, we have packaging materials on hand, from boxes to bubble wrap for the protection of your items, at a fraction of the cost of other retailers. The added benefit of using our packaging solutions is that our friendly team will be happy to help you with any packing and unpacking should you wish!


Moving house or transporting goods for your business to your new storage unit? It can be hard to find trustworthy companies that truly take due care and attention when moving your items. That’s why at Storage World, we have established partnerships with a vast group of trusted local transport companies ready to help you move in.  

Once you arrive at Storage World, we also offer you free-of-charge use of trolleys, pallet trucks and for any particularly larger items, we can also provide you with a fork lift truck to ensure safe transportation with ease. 


You can easily gain access to your storage unit 7-days a week, with plenty of car parking space and the ability to drive straight up to your unit from the exterior. This makes moving items in or out an absolute breeze. We understand that not being able to access your storage unit at a moment’s notice may cause great inconvenience for you and so we strive to ensure you can gain entry to your unit whenever you need to. 


When storing high-value items, (whether monetary or sentimental) you may wish to consider an appropriate level of insurance cover. This can often be a lengthy process, particularly if you’re storing things with very specific insurance requirements. Here at Storage World, while we certainly do everything to protect your items at all times, we provide the most robust insurance cover for the ultimate peace of mind. We can help you to find an appropriate insurer and advise you on the level of cover you may need to make this simpler for you. 

Scale up or Downsize 

Our storage unit sizes range from 25sqft right up to 200sqft and there are plenty of sizes in- between! When you rent a particular sized unit, we don’t tie you into a long-term contract and so you’re free to upsize or downsize your unit as your storage needs change. We will never charge you for more space than you truly need and will also advise and help you to utilise the most of the vertical and horizontal space available in your unit. What’s more is, depending on availability, we can even help you to move units the very same day. 

When you first enquire at Storage World, our expert team is trained to advise exactly which sized unit you need based on your requirements and will match you to the best value offer and assist you with transport or van hire accordingly too. This ensures you have everything you need and that you’re provided with the appropriate sized unit from day one. Our customers often use their unit regularly, retrieving and adding items as they require. The Storage World team are always on hand to assist customers as their needs evolve too.

Business Solutions 

Owning your own business can come with a vast amount of additional costs when it comes to renting an office, warehouse space to keep stock and inventory or even a workshop space to make your products. Here at Storage World, we can provide you with each of these workspace types while keeping costs to a minimum. Utilising a storage facility as your workplace comes with many benefits and can take your business above and beyond. Take a look at our business solutions page to see how. 

Wifi and facilities 

When choosing Storage World for your business premises, we understand you will be spending a lot of your time with us, which is why we offer free WiFi access along with pristine kitchen and WC facilities. This helps to keep your business running smoothly and your employees on top-form. 

Parcel services

For retail businesses, frequently posting packages, receiving stock and dealing with returns becomes a big part of the job. Storage World understands the importance of a streamlined mail service, which is why we offer support to send and receive parcels. We offer a free parcel receive and dispatch service, alongside supplying you with your own designated mailbox to ensure all incoming mail lands directly in the right hands. 


Security is something we take very seriously at Storage World, and so we have a robust security system in place. We’ve invested in market-leading security systems including 24 hour monitored CCTV and strong lock set ups, for which you as the storage unit owner will be the only key holder unless you request otherwise. 

Price match

The average pricing for storage differs across the UK, but we understand the importance of having your storage unit close by. That’s why if you find a storage provider that is cheaper than us but feel our facility would be more convenient for you, then we are happy to match the price of the competitor. Storage World strives to offer you amazing service from the moment you get in touch, so please do reach out to us with any questions. . You can find all of the price match information here.
