Price Guarantees
Storage World Self Storage & Workspace is not alone in providing some form of price guarantee; this is now fairly common place among the leading Self Storage operators across the UK. Whilst we promise to match any like for like written quotation this is entirely based upon the quote being for a Storage Unit of the same size and geographic location. Crucially the facility must be of a comparable high standard and take into consideration the wider aspects of the proposal. Shopping around could be an option; however you must consider the implications of out of town storage, convenience and so on.
