Friendly helpful and a complete service. Facilities were excellent and state of the art leaving me with confidence about the facility. Pricing was also the best I could find so everything I wanted and more at a fraction of the price of competitors in the area.

Aggie & the team are so helpful. I've not rented a storage unit before & Aggie spoke with me about the sizes and showed me a couple to compare for furniture from a 3 bedroom house as it became apparent I had been misquoted by another storage company. Very happy with the friendly service & advice recieved.

They were very polite and patient with my storage especially when explaining to me how the whole thing works. This is vital as I was an international student here staying here in the UK for the first time and it was good that it was explained clearly on how I could properly store my belongings without a worry of it going missing or misplaced.

Complex, unclear payment rules.
In my case I rented for 2 weeks, I booked a room on Safestore website and I was paying with a debit card at the counter during receiving the room key.
But for this pre-paid 2-week rental Safestore had to set up a direct debit. And they actually charge me a second month renta!!l Which was refunded a few weeks later.
On the last day of the renal they put a separate lock on the door, so I had no longer access to the room and meaning they new my rental was finished, but they did not close the rental account! I had to go there in person to finalise formalities.
Terrible contracting and accounting procedure!
Otherwise the storage was OK, indoors, dry, with unlimited access 24-7.
