Secure Furniture Storage

We understand that not everyone has the same requirements when needing storage for furniture.

For some of our customers cost is the determening factor, whilst for others convenience is the most important, we try our best to meet both requirements by providing secure, affordable furniture storage in ten convenient locations.

Our most popular storage units are our large stores which are 20ft x 8ft, we recommend them as the ideal size for a typical 3-bedroom house move, but we also have alternative sizes to suit all furniture storage needs.

When storing furniture, we recommend you store items that you need most often at the front of your store for quicker access.  We also have various packaging products that are tailored towards furniture including mattress covers, dust sheets, packing tape and much more - all designed to make storing with us as easy as can be.

We like to think using storage is like playing Tetris on a larger scale.

Temporary and Long Term Furniture Storage

Our aim is to offer a great solution when you require short-term furniture storage, perfect for when you need to freshen up your dining room or a bedroom.  We also know that some renovations can take time, so we also provide a great long-term furniture storage option.

Our storage can offer a temporary solution if you need to store items for relatives, an example would be storing your son or daughters bedroom furniture whilst they're off enjoying life at university! 

Our self-storage sites are open 24 hour a day, 7 days a week meaning you are able come and go as often and as you need.  After all, you may need to get your garden furniture in and out more than once to grab that unexpected glimmer of sunshine.

Container Types

Neat

Measures 6ft x 4ft (and 8ft high)

These stores are great for student storage or storing stuff like those Christmas decorations. This size is presently only available on our site at Newcastle.

Mini

A 6ft cube – 6ft x 6ft (and 6ft high)

These stores all have double door access so are great for motorbike storage or anything else that needs a compact secure space.

Mini Internal

On our site at Grantham these are our internal storage crates measuring 5ft x 7ft. These are stored inside our warehouse so you don’t have 24/7 access to these stores. (If access at any time is important to you one of our others types of store may serve your purpose better where you will have 24/7 access.)

Compact

6ft x 8ft (and 8ft high)

About the size of a large garden shed – but a lot more secure. A good size for the bits that are over spilling in the spare room or if the kids have moved out or if you’re starting a new business and need some where to keep your tools or filing.

Handy

8ft x 7ft 6” (and 7ft 4” High)

A bit bigger than a compact. We would recommend this size for a move from a 1 bedroomed flat but also a great size for businesses for archive storage or if you want to get your garage or spare room back.

Standard

10ft x 8ft (and 8ft high)

Some of our standard containers have double doors and some have personnel doors. To visualise this space, think of a spare room size. It’s a good sized space again for both businesses and house moves.

Large

20ft x 8ft (and 8ft high)

This is the most popular size store we have and we describe this space as the equivalent of a good sized single garage although I wish my garage was that big! This size is big enough for most 3 bedroomed house moves. All of our large containers have double door access so are ideal for storing your car or boat. It’s a great space for business storage and if you’re looking for archive storage we can shelve it out for you for a small extra charge. Ask us for more information.

Super

30ft x 8ft (and 8ft high)

When you need a bit more than our large container. You’ll get a lot in here.

Mega

40ft x 8ft (and 8ft high)

For when you have lots to store. This is great storage for businesses that don’t want the added cost of taking on a warehouse or business premises but still have lots to store.

    Important Questions related to Furniture Storage

    Below are some of the questions we often get asked relating to our storage, if you have any other questions - please get in touch we'd love to help.

    How much does furniture storage cost?

    We get asked how much does furniture storage cost quite a lot!

    Unfortunately, we can't give a definitive answer to this question, as every person needing to store their furniture with us for different reasons, meaning they may require a different size store, also everyone's timescale can be different.

    We can tell you how much furniture storage costs per month, for the various size stores and also explain that you'll only pay for the storage you use (subject to 1-week minimum hire period), and that you would pay on a month to month rolling contract should you require long term storage.

    Our furniture storage prices range from £55.56 per month up to £268.66 per month.

    Is it safe to store furniture in storage?

    We do recommend you take some precautions when using our furniture storage.

    When loading your furniture into the unit, we recommend you cover items with dust sheets to help prevent any dust sitting on them.

    Also, try to leave a little space between items so they do not catch each other which could cause them to get scratched or damaged.

    Can you store furniture in a shipping container?

    We have hundreds of customers using us for long term furniture storage, our customer service team will be happy to help you find the best storage unit to help make sure your furniture is the same leaving as it is going into storage.

    We also have a range of packaging that can be used when storing with us.

    We have customers who store furniture short-term during a house renovation such as redecorating, and customers storing garden furniture until we finally get some sunshine we can enjoy.

    Do shipping containers get damp?

    Our site managers check over all of our storage units before we re-hire to new customers.

    We also recommend that you load your furniture into the unit on a dry day, in order to minimise any moisture entering the container along with your furniture.

    If in any doubt, we do also sell a product called an ‘Absopole’ which absorbs any mositure that may have been taken into the container - it collects and stores any moisture for between 3-6 months.

    Which size container will I need to store my furniture?

    This depends on how much you want to store, we have a range of container stores to fit your requirements.

    Our smallest stores are a 6ft x 4ft (Neat) and 6ft x 6ft (Mini) container which could be a great solution for temporary student furniture storage.

    Our largest store is 40ft x 8ft that is large enough for business furniture storage - e.g. during office renovations.

    Our most popular store size is 20ft x 8ft that can provide enough storage for 3-bedroom house moves.

    If you need any help with deciding which store size you require our customer service team will be happy to help you make the right choice, and if you need to more or less space during your storage - you can also upsize or downsize your size storage container.
