Some Legal Information

In order to store with us you will need to enter into a storage agreement with The Self Storage Company Ltd (or one of its group companies). Highlights of our Terms and Conditions are below. Full details are available here.


Typically Monday to Friday – 8am to 6pm, Saturday – 8am to 4pm, Sunday – 10am to 3pm. These may vary at times by store so please check the individual store opening hours on stores web page.


Like many other storage companies we do charge a security deposit. This is equivalent to the size of your space in sqft, ie. 50sqft has a £50 deposit. Larger deposits are taken for offices, commercial space and bespoke requirements.

Reservation Fee

Our reservation fee is fully refundable should your circumstances change and you no longer require storage.


You must either have a valid insurance certificate for contents to be covered in store, or we can arrange insurance for you on your day of move-in.

Storage Services are charged on a 4-weekly basis, so you will be billed every 28 days.


Two weeks written notice is required to terminate your agreement for standard sized space. Larger space, offices and trade counters may have longer periods of notice as detailed within individual agreements.

No refund will be due if you accept one of our discounts and terminate your agreement during this discounted period.


The storage space must be left empty and clean upon vacation.
