Here at Safestore we know that not everyone has or needs a car, but when it comes to moving all your belongings into storage they can come in handy. So if you don’t have a car you still have a variety of transport options open to you, depending on your priorities and preferences. Read on to find out more.
Public transport can be a good option especially if you are well located for bus stops, don’t have a great deal to store and don’t have to carry anything too far. Consider buying a day pass and using the bus several times to get to and from your local Safestore. This way you can store all your things without a huge expense.
If a bus or train is out of the question - perhaps you have too much to carry yourself, you don’t know how to drive or you’re in an awkward location - then a taxi may be the next best thing. Depending on how much you have to store, a taxi will happily take you to a Safestore storage facility along with all your belongings, provided that they fit comfortably in the vehicle. This option may work out more expensive than public transport, but it is much more convenient and you will be able to take everything in one go.
Hire a van
Hiring a van may be the ideal solution for those with a driver’s licence but without an actual vehicle and with quite a lot to store. This option gives you the freedom to store as much as you like, whenever you like, in as many trips as you like, without the restrictions of public transport or taxis.

Hire a man with a van
If you don’t have a driver’s licence but have a lot to store, then consider hiring a man with a van. Removal services are perfect for those without a licence or those who aren’t comfortable driving a van by themselves. Safestore centres will usually have local removal services that they recommend, so if this seems like the perfect option for you, then talk to your local Safestore team
Whichever you choose, make sure that you get the best deal with Safestore.
