Meet the newest addition to our growing self storage family!
It’s a very busy time here at Safestore as we have 4 new stores opening over the next few months. Our Wandsworth Store re-opened last week after being closed in November. It is situated in South London on Garratt Lane between Wandsworth Town and Earlsfield.
Wandsworth town is one of the oldest settlements in the borough and has benefitted from major investment and redevelopment recently. Earlsfield is also up and coming, with its eclectic blend of trendy bars and restaurants, theatres and sense of community. Previously theses two were overlooked for the more popular areas of Puntey and Wimbledon.
Debatably it could be the next Fulham in a few years
The close proximity to the City of London, 13 minutes by train to Waterloo makes both Wandsworth and Earlsfield appealing to young professionals. The schools and green spaces are attractive to families. The area is flourishing and so is the demand for Self Storage with people moving in, properties being development and new businesses coming to the area.
Our old store which was 9000 sq ft was set back on the property with another building in front of it. The decision was made to demolish both buildings and to build a new bigger one in a more prominent position on Garratt Lane. The new store is 33, 0000 sq ft, which is a 266% increase, which will allow us to better serve the area. As you can see by the pictures below it’s a dramatic difference.
The new building is 4 stories, however, at the moment only the first two floors have been built out which means fitted out with storage units. The top two levels are reserved for bulk storage and can be built out to tailor the needs of our customers.
If you need a 1000 sq ft we can build it’ – Joe Napier, Seconded Store Manager
In addition to what you would expect to find in a Self Storage Facility (Security, Flexibility, Accessbility) the Wandsworth Store has been kitted out with solar panels on the roof and the entire site has 24 hours access if requested.
Meet the Team
I had the pleasure of meeting the new team last week and I can assure you they’re consummate professionals and have bags of personality.
Jo Napier (left) joined Safestore in 2014 and quickly rose to an Assistant Manager before being handed a Store Manager Secondment in May this year. Joe really likes his football and is a big Arsenal fan. He also loves spending time with his family.
Tony Dodds (centre) the Store Manager has worked in several of our stores and, in addition to being a store manager, he is also a Training Manager and Regional Support. He is a doting father and a movie buff.

is our Sales Consultant with a strong record. In his spare time he coaches poker and plays rugby and is not camera shy.
Well done to all those involved and wishing our team at Wandsworth Safestore Self Storage
all the best.
