Storing with us could not be easier, simply arrange to meet us on-site and we will supply you with everything that you need there and then. We nearly always have space available and can work on short notice if required.

We do, however, have some top tips for storage: SDS Top Tips

All of our units are ‘as new’ with painted white walls and varnished wooden floors. Our Standard unit size is 8’Dx8’Hx20’L -approx 160 sq. ft. or about the size of a large garage: See our standard container dimensions here We also offer half-sized containers See our half sized container dimensions here
We have units ranging from 80 – 500sq ft .

Access

For your convenience, you can access your storage unit between the hours of 07:00am and 19:00pm seven days per week. Our units are all at ground level allowing drive to the door access

Security

We will supply you with keys and fobs as requires for site access and a high security specially designed lock to fit your unit’s lock box. We have security cameras and lighting on all sites

Moisture and Ventilation

We are unique in that all of our units either have Grafo condensation treatment or are special multi vent units. Grafo absorbs moisture from your items and prevents condensation however it is important that all of your items are dry going into storage. For further peace of mind we can supply Absorpole moisture traps if required.

Removals

We work with selected local removals firms and will happily assist with arranging your removals if required.

Self Storage Size Guide

The contents of a 1 bedroom flat or house, a half full garage or 2-3 person office space should fit into one of our half-sized containers. See our half sized container dimensions here

The contents of a 2 bedroom flat or house may fit within a half-sized container but we’d advise a standard 20’ container. See our standard container dimensions here

The contents of a typical 3 bedroom or small 4 bedroom house will require a 20’ container unless it is a very large property in which case more space may be needed. See our standard container dimensions here

Larger properties are likely to require more than one container to accommodate their contents. We can normally provide units close to each other and you can increase or decrease the amount of space you have as your needs change.

If you require larger scale self-storage or business usage in the South Downs area, especially longer-term, our commercial units may be of interest to you.

How it works

  • Book with us on the telephone by email or at a pre-arranged site visit.
  • The first months’ rent and £50 refundable security deposit are due on or before check-in, we will email you a booking confirmation and invoice.
  • We arrange to meet on-site where we show you to your unit and demonstrate how access works.
  • We sign a storage agreement which rolls monthly and so you pay only for the time you need and can keep the unit for as long as it is required.
  • We scan and email the storage agreement to you for your records.
  • Rental payments are due monthly in advance via Standing Order.

Thank you so much,  it all seems very straightforward and well organised.

SDS - Top Tips for storage

  1. If you are moving house, allow plenty of time to book removals and organise storage. Consider starting to move small items ahead of time to give yourself more space and reduce work load on ‘move day’
  2. A removals firm will be able to tell you very quickly how much van and / or storage space you will need to accommodate your items
  3. Ensure items are dry before they go into storage. Drain down appliances and ensure card board boxes and other textiles are not damp. We can supply moisture traps if required
  4. Use good quality storage boxes and fill these evenly - partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  5. Place bulky and heavy items into the unit first to provide a good base to stack on
  6. Plan your space so that items you need to access are nearest to the door
  7. Do not pack your storage container too tightly – leave a little room for air to move around your items
  8. Place a protective cover on soft furnishings and textile items
  9. Take care not to cover air vents in the container and where possible do not place cardboard boxes directly on the floor
  10. Visit and open your unit regularly on a dry and ideally breezy day to ventilate it – we recommend once per month initially
