How Does Self Storage Work?

It is so easy!

You can book your storage space by phone, online, or simply turn up and unload. We will help you find the best most economical space and then you can bring your own padlock or purchase one from us and then leave safe in the knowledge that we will take care of everything else. It really is that simple and hassle-free! 

Our SafeHold Self Storage facility offers modern, dry, condensation free, state-of-the-art secure storage units which are clean and very easy to access 24/7.  Linked to the police and the fire service, our storage is lit by both natural and energy efficient lighting.  There is a comfortable reception area,  toilets, free parking and a covered unloading area to make you welcome.  To make unloading as easy and quick as possible we have on hand,  trolleys, sack barrows and pallet forks.

We don’t hide behind our website and that’s why you’ll see our phone number on every page so that you can chat to our team,  who will be happy to talk to you on the phone, or face-to-face, to help you through the process of storing.  We promise there will be no hard sell, just help.  Come and see the setup for yourself.
