Storage Checklist

Before you move into a Safestore centre there are a few things you’ll need to organise. Check you have the following in place:

  1. Insurance Cover

    Your goods must be insured whilst in storage. Safestore offers insurance protection under our own insurance policy. You must declare the current new replacement value of all property being stored. This means the cost to replace your items with a new equivalent, not the price you paid when you purchased each item.

  2. Direct Debit Payments

    You’ll need to complete the forms setting up a direct debit payment for your rental period.

  3. Credit/Debit Card or Cheque

    Your initial rental payment and security deposit needs to be provided by credit card, debit card or cheque. We are unable to accept cash payments.

  4. A Security Padlock

    You are the only key holder to your space at Safestore, which is secured with a padlock. We have padlocks available for purchase should you need one.

  5. Identification

    When you move goods in or out of Safestore premises you’ll need to bring two forms of ID with you.

    1. Photographic ID (passport, full driving licence (passport if a provisional driving licence) or valid Student ID)

    2. Proof of residence in the form of a bank statement or utility bill less than 3 months old. (We don’t accept credit card statements or mobile phone bills as proof of residence.)

  6. An Emergency Contact Number

    We will need an alternative contact name and number, in case of emergency.
