Self storage units in Edinburgh Leith

Latest COVID information

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).

Find us

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.

It was absolutely perfect. My boxes were dropped and collected quickly. There was no much paperwork and I was helped by the staff to carry my stuff to my locker. The staff put all my boxes in and I didn't have to touch them even. In merely, 30 minutes I was in and out of safestore with all work done. It was my first time and I had no problem.

Considering how late in the day it was I got to the store in order to sign my contract, the member of staff was incredibly helpful, kind, and went extra steps to ensure that I got sorted

Lucille helped my son store his Uni gear for the Summer period and was extremely helpful and kind. She made a potentially difficult process straightforward for him. We are recommending Safestore to other students now we know it is so easy to arrange.

I went to the storage on 12 12 2021 to take a few things from my boxes. I was there for around 2 hours and most of the time I had to open, search and close the boxes in the dark. It was frustrating. Maybe a little light continues could be useful in the box.
Thank you. Every other think was excellent!

Got my storage unit rented when I sold my house. With 50% off for first 8 weeks I could keep all my belongings for enough amount of time to move easily. Prices reasonable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Outside units have 24h access.

Excellent service from Lucille at Safestore Leith, Edinburgh. We went through the paperwork really quickly and easily and then Lucille showed us our storage unit and how to get in and out of the storage facility. Very friendly and accommodating and we received a £10 voucher on packaging materials which came in handy. Thanks Lucille

Too expensive, space not as stated in the ad.
Volume reduced by the roof of the building entering the box.
Adesive tape almost useless, poor quality.
