Self storage for business stock
Do you need somewhere to store your business stock, but don’t want to get tied into a long commercial lease or pay expensive business rates? We offer flexible, affordable business storage with no long tie-in commercial leases, no legal fees, no business rates and no contract fees.
You might need to use self storage for your business stock if:
- You don't have room in your existing premises to store stock,
- You’re a growing business and need more space for your stock,
- Your store stock is seasonal and you don’t have enough room on your premises at busy times of the year,
- You run your business across multiple sites and need somewhere central for your stock for easy access.
We’re a very popular choice for online retailers
and Amazon sellers
to store their business stock, and we’re suitable for almost any other type of business. So whether you need to store shop stock, general stock, or materials and equipment to manufacture stock, consider using Safestore to keep it all safe and secure.
Benefits of choosing Safestore for your business storage
There are several good reasons for choosing Safestore to store your business stock.
We have over 120 stores in the UK, located close to major road and/or rail networks for easy access. To find the store closest to your business, use our store finder online or speak with one of our helpful team who can find a unit that meets your storage needs.
We charge one low, weekly price per unit. You can extend or end your contract at any time, and there are no hidden fees or penalties for doing so. You won’t have to pay business rates on your storage space, unlike traditional commercial leases for warehouse space.
We know that it’s vital that you can access your stock whenever you need it.
At Safestore, you can access your unit whenever you like during opening hours; you’ll be the only keyholder and can come and go as you like.
Many of our stores offer 24-hour access if needed, 365 days a year, which is great if you need to fulfil customer orders in a hurry, or if you don’t want to interrupt your working day to visit your unit.
To make your unit as accessible as possible, most of our stores have:
- onsite car parking,
- loading bays,
- double door access,
- drive up room access.
- customer lifts
- wide aisles and corridors
To make loading and unloading your business stock as easy as possible, many of our stores offer these items and services free of charge:
- Pump trucks
- Forklift trucks that you can use
- A forklift truck service operated by our trained staff
- Help with deliveries
At many of our stores, our helpful team can accept deliveries on your behalf. Lots of our customers find it very helpful to be able to have business stock and other goods delivered straight to the store rather than to their business or home address. We’ll keep it safe until you can arrive to transfer it into your unit.
We’re also nominated DHL Service Points, so you can send letters or parcels direct from the store to avoid any delay in getting your stock to your customers.
Our stores are monitored by 24-hour CCTV and intruder alarms; several also have 24-hour security guards onsite. Individual units are secured either with your own padlock or a keyfob entry system and you’ll be the only person who can access your unit.
Units in a wide range of sizes
All of our stores offer storage units in a wide range of sizes, from 10 sq ft lockers to warehouse-sized rooms of over 500 sq ft, many with high ceilings. Whether you need to store stock, archives, tools or equipment, you’ll find a secure self storage unit that’s the perfect size.
Our video guides
can help you to picture how much stock you could fit into each different size of unit, and our experienced team can offer personalised advice by phone or online, based on how much you need to store with us.
We also sell a range of boxes, packaging and racking so that you can organise your business stock efficiently.
Flexible business storage terms
At Safestore, you can increase or decrease the size of your unit at any time, with no hidden fees or penalties to pay. You’ll never have to pay for more square footage than you need, and you’ll always have enough space at times when your stock level is high.
You can keep your unit for 7 days, or for however long you need. There are no long tie-in periods, though many of our stores offer discounts if you plan to stay for longer than 12 months.
