Goods lift out of action all weekend - why hasn't this been fixed?

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I apologize for the inconvenience of the lift not working, I can understand this would be frustrating. Unfortunately mechanical items are prone to mishaps and can happen without warning. I have spoken to the store who called for an engineer as soon as they knew the lift wasn't working and the engineer attended as soon as they could, being a weekend it is always more difficult as you can appreciate. If you have any further issues please contact the store. Kind Regards, Jen.

Syed from sheffield was most helpful and went the extra mile, very happy 😊

Helped me out when I faced difficulties during a move. I really appreciated that every member of staff I ever spoke to were really helpful nothing was any trouble. I was given storage on the day I called. It was clean and perfect size! I used it for the period of half price offer which was good value giving more time to reorganise. I was able to discuss/negotiate the cost of insurance without feeling silly. If your sensitive to cold I would wear warm gloves because the trolley handles get quite cold. I had my own padlock which if you have make sure you bring but you can buy from them anyway. On checking out I gave my agreed notice period which I ended up going over by two days because the last item my husband needed to move which just meant on checkout he paid the balance for those two days. All in all 5* would recommend

Needed storage at short notice, with help from the safestore staff, got a unit that matched my requirements.

I would not use Safestore again, I’ve already written a review which was answered by a Safestore advisor to which I didn’t get the offer to respond too. She said she’d listened to the call that took place on my encounter of enquiry, I was advised the wrong sized container which has cost me dearly.
I was given the wrong advice, I was not asked the correct questions and they didn’t appear interested when I voiced my concerns and disappointment when I arrived at the reception desk.consequently I had to hire a second container, another insurance and another padlock. I also ended up having to pay extra for the removals who had to wait for my arrival, one of the guys told me he wasn’t surprised what had happened and that he dose t like dealing with them, ‘all they care about is the money’ terrible service.

Convenient location, good customer service and very clean well presented storage units & facilities. Very reasonably priced especially when compared with local competitors.

Really helpful on the phone and gave advice on size of space and getting the best price. I also was given a list of reliable moves who turned out to be great - budget movers in Sheffield. The paperwork wasn’t electronic to begin with but then that was sorted and I didn’t realise payment wasn’t made until the removal people arrived at the storage facility but they let them start unpacking anyway. Although it would have been nice to get a reminder about the payment link especially as I had spoken to someone on the phone a few days before. Overall though, apart from that one hiccup which stressed me out, it’s very good so far

Excellent service from Safestore Sheffield. Derek was super friendly and very helpful to ensure our stuff was safely stored away after our house move from London.

Staff were efficient and helpful, I would definitely recommend Safestore and will be using them again if I need storage in the future.

The actual storage unit was fine, however I was deeply disappointed when I got there and I was told that my ‘booking’ didn’t actually mean anything abs I hadn’t reserved a room. This meant that the room size I wanted was unavailable, so I had to go for a larger one than what I needed. The price quoted to me when I booked the room was £11 a week, which I thought was reasonable, however when I got there this seemed to be a made up price and I in fact had to pay £45 for my first week, and £30 for subsequent weeks.

Our previous house move, twenty four years ago, was a simple 'move out of one into another' on the same day. This time, we needed to put our belongings into store which was a totally new experience. Most of my communications with 'Safestore Sheffield' were with David and from that first enquiry, he has been very helpful and reassuring. His manner has always been relaxed and friendly, ensuring that I have the best service possible. On the few occasions I have spoken to other staff, I have experienced that same reassurance and help. After initial reservations of putting all our belongings 'into store', I am well-pleased with the quality of the facility in Sheffield. It is well-ventilated, dry and clean. It is well-maintained and as secure as any facility can be. Whilst I can't wait to remove all our belongings from the store, simply because this will indicate we have found a new home to move into, in the meantime, I am confident our possessions are in good hands. Based on our experience so far, we would have no hesitation in recommending 'Safestore Sheffield'.

The facility is great but the paperwork is huge and time-consuming on the day. Also, I had booked in advance (at their suggestion, to secure a unit and take advantage of discounts) and the contracts had been changed since then. They asked for bank statements, proof of id etc on the day which I didn't know about or have ready.

Setting up the storage unit was nice and easy and they allowed me flexibility with my start date which was good. The unit I was told would be big enough for what I had unfortunately wasn't and as such I needed to hire a new one which they helped me with. This was however at full price and whilst the office staff said they would speak to their Regional manager about trying to offer the 50% discount, no one has come back to me.

Very impressed with the setup. Sean who dealt with my induction and welcome was friendly and professional. Exactly what was needed during a stressful move! Thank you

David and his team were polite, helpful and professional. They explained things well over the phone and in person.

The lock up store is clean and tidy and just what we needed.

Thank you. Kevin.
