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!

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.

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.
