How Self Storage Works
More and more people and businesses are turning to self-storage to help reduce clutter and manage space. It couldn’t be easier to store your items and if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to ask.
1. Find a Branch
Use our branch locator to find your closest STORAGE 4U branch. Our branches are open 6 days per week (and Sundays by prior appoinment) and our staff on the front desk are always happy to help. Please check with branch for opening hours.
2. Select your unit size & time period
You can use our storage calculator tool to help you determine what size unit you need and the time period is completely up to you: 1 week, 3 months, 50 years. Our plans are completely flexible!
3. Book your unit
Use our contact form to let us know your storage requirements and rough time period so we can get the units ready for you. If you are unsure of the time period then no problem, just let us know your requirements and we can figure out the rest on your check in.
4. Package your items
We recommend that all of your items are securely packaged to prevent any breakages or damage to them during transit. If you need packaging materials or boxes then contact us and we can help.
5. Transport your items
You will need to transport your items down to the branch. We have plenty of parking available at all of our branches and driving directions are available on the branches page. If you need help finding a removal company or local van hire then view our list of removal partners. We also offer free use of our vans – please check with your nearest branch for details
6. Check In
When you arrive at the branch you should visit the front desk to check in and you will be asked to sign the storage agreement which outlines our T&Cs. Once this is done you will be shown to your unit and can move in straight away!
7. Moving Out
When you are ready to go just let us know what date you would like to vacate the unit and head to front desk before you remove all your stuff. We will refund you for any unused days you have paid for.
