Self storage units in Edinburgh Leith

Looking for self-storage in Edinburgh? We have three stores in the city: Edinburgh Gyle, to the south-west of the city centre, Edinburgh Fort Kinnaird to the northeast, and Edinburgh Leith near the port.

Safestore Edinburgh Leith is located just off Salamander Street (A199), with the store entrance (and customer car park) on Carron Place. We’re convenient if you need self storage in Edinburgh, Leith, Newhaven or Craigentinny. You can access your storage room 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and if you’re expecting a delivery but don’t want to wait around for it, our friendly in-store team can accept it for you and keep it safe until you arrive.

We offer rooms ranging from 10 sq ft lockers (perfect for student storage, left luggage or camping and sporting gear) to warehouses of 500 sq ft+ (which can accommodate all of your business’s stock and equipment) and everything in between (ideal for keeping household contents safe during a move, for example).

We’re easy to reach by car: our postcode for SATNAV is EH6 7RE, which will take you to the entrance of our car park on Carron Place.

If you’re travelling by public transport, Edinburgh Waverley is the nearest railway station (roughly 15 minutes’ journey by taxi) and the nearest bus stop is Salamander Place, served by the number 12 bus.

Everyone was very friendly at the Leith store.I dealt mainly with Drew but everyone was friendly and approachable really. They were very happy to show us the different unit options.

This is for the Safestore Leith branch in Edinburgh. We arranged a unit but unfortunately the occupants kept it on. We were offered another 175 sqm unit, which on opening the door, appeared to be smaller than another 175sqm that we had been shown previously. It was the only large unit they had available, so we signed up to take occupancy the next day. On getting home, my husband was working the space out as we had measured up for our sofas. My husband and son discussed the space issue and went back to have another look at the unit when the measured it up. It worked out that it was only a 115sqm unit but that we were being charged for a 150sqm. By anyone's reasoning this is nothing short of fraud. We cancelled the contract, received my first 4 weeks refund on the spot, but I am still awaiting confirmation of from Safestore of the contract cancellation. I only hope that the manager there has dealt with the cancellation properly because of the issues we raised. We in turn went with the Safestore branch at Fort Kinnaird and the manager there could not have been nicer when we told him of our issues. We have ended up with a far better unit than we had been offered at the Leith branch.

Absolutely incredible service from Jen. Over the phone Jen was friendly, knowledgable and helpful.
When I met Jen in person she was on her own in the office attempting to tackle at least 4 people at once. I was impressed at how calmly and professionally she managed the busy time.

The day I came to move into my locker the men in the office were fantastic also. Great bunch of people!

The storage is great. But communication to customers needs a lot of improvement. Perhaps proper training in interpersonal relationship as well. My wife and I felt humiliated at an Edinburgh store due to the above. We swiftly moved out and got generous storage in the neighbourhood.

Great customer service, everything was explained and was quick and easy.
I was even shown a few different lock up sizes so that I could make the best decision based on my needs, the 24hour access is also a huge bonus.
