The service has been excellent from the staff at Reading led by Shaun. It can be a complicated process understanding all the terms and conditions but my comments were listened to throughout which was great.
The facilities are well kept and clean and so far I have been very pleased with the service provided.

I had a quote, which I accepted. But when I went into the branch to set it up, the gentleman at reception was confused. I am now unsure as to what I have entered into. I emailed Lewis, who gave me the original quote in order to gain clarity. His response was brief and did not address my concerns. I am unhappy with the service and feel that the company was only interested in securing my business, not providing a service.

I am due refund but still no signs of any refund . I paid for 4 weeks . Used storage for 2 weeks. I gave notice in the beginning but at two weeks I was told that there was no notice so no refund is due. The guy dealing with me had some IT issue with computer and he probably couldn't update the notice on the system and hence two weeks later I m told that no refund is due

Sean, the manager of the store, has been fantastic. He made time to talk to me in great detail when I dropped by to get the pricing, he made sure I got a discount for paying in advance, was there to 'check me in' on the date of the move and just generally provided customer friendly service at all times. A job very well done.

Bad

Safestore was perfect but some of the staff have bad attitude,not willing to help out the customer (need to load one table not heavy but size).refuse of being braking his back as the medium size adult ( with skin head). I am barely half of his size....😂.
Apart from that all good

Thank you for using our Safestore facility in Reading. I am really pleased to hear that you and found our store to be perfect for you. I hear your comments on staff not willing to help with loading / unloading. Just to make you aware our staff are there to assist you in all ways but we do not ask for them to load / unload goods unless using a fork lift service is needed. I am sure many will try and assist in being helpful though as that is the kind of people we employ within reason as we do not want for staff to hurt themselves in lifting heavy goods. If there is anything else that the team or I can do, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you once again for using Safestore Reading.

Generally a very good service from all the staff,but a range of different types of trolley would have made moving larger items easier.
