Coronavirus update

Coronavirus Update to All our Customers – 5th January 2021

Our thoughts go out to everyone that has been affected by COVID-19. Our priority continues to be the well-being of our customers, colleagues, and suppliers.


All storage centres will remain open for use by essential services, those businesses that remain open and those individuals permitted to travel under government advice. This includes key workers, online retailers, construction and trade workers, house moves, and other users of self storage who need essential access to their storage unit (this includes move in’s and move outs and any customer who considers their access essential).

However, we will now be reducing our opening times. It is possible that in some cases, we may be unable to open, and will have to alter our opening hours with little to no notice; in the event of staff unavailability (due to shielding / quarantining / self-isolating).

We advise that you contact the storage centre in advance or contact our freephone number for further advice.

there can be no close contact and all interaction will have to be by telephone.

We continue to monitor and review our opening hours in line with government and medical
advice to ensure the safety of our customers, suppliers and colleagues at all times.
