How does self storage work?

At Storage Manchester using self storage has never been easier. Simply call up a member of our team for an initial phone consultation. We will discuss some details with you such as duration of stay, items being stored and size of storage unit before giving you a completely free quote. Once we agree on what works for you we can set a plan in place for your move in and arrange a free van rental or collection and removal if required. 

Unlike some storage companies we are incredibly flexible with our customers so if you discover you need a little more or a little less storage space simply get in touch with a member of our team and they can sort that out for you. We have a range of payment plans in place to make paying for your storage unit as simple as possible with our most common being to pay weekly with a zero deposit. In addition to this standing orders can be set up so you can ensure you never miss a payment. 

What kind of security is in place at the Manchester Storage unit?

At Storage Manchester the safety and security of our site, customers, staff and items stored here is our number one priority. Our state of the art facility is safe and secure and boasts an impressive 24HR CCTV surveillance system that is made up of over 300CCTV cameras both inside and outside the grounds and perimeter of our storage centre. In addition to this our facility is fully kitted out with a state of the art red care alarm system. 

Access to your storage unit is controlled purely by you as you will be the only one to have a key for your padlock. 

Do I need my own padlock?

Yes, all of our customers can provide their own padlock. We feel this provides the most control for our customers as they can guarantee that they are the only one who has access to their storage unit. If you do not have a padlock Storage Manchester sell padlocks for your convenience. 

 

How much does it cost to store with Storage Manchester?

The price you pay is determined by the size of the room you need. That's why our commitment to you is that we will get you into the smallest space possible. As the rental charge is calculated according to the floor area of the storage room, the smaller the floor area the less you end up paying. Our storage prices start from as little as £1 per week! We are never beaten on price!

Estimating the storage space you need isn't as simple and straightforward as it looks. It depends on:

-What you need to store 

-How stackable it is

-How high the ceiling of the storage room is

-What sort of access you will need since you may want to leave a walkway through the storage room to get to your possessions. 

We can advise you on how to stack your goods and possessions to make maximum use of the space.

The price is based on the space you require and estimating the space that you need isn't as simple and straightforward as it looks. We strongly recommend to give us a call WITH NO OBLIGATION to get the right price for the right space.

What is the minimum storage rental period?

You can store for as long as you want, there is no minimum or maximum storage rental period.

What is included in the price - are there any hidden extras?

The price you are quoted by our staff includes your storage charge. You require a padlock to secure the unit whilst in storage which you can provide or can be purchased from us. There are no hidden extras in your quote.
