Finding a storage facility near you
To find storage units near you, whether you’re looking for home, business or student storage, simply enter your postcode, city or town in the search box. You will then be presented with the nearest store and a few alternatives nearby.
We know, though, that sometimes your closest store may not be the most convenient for you – perhaps you want a storage unit or lockers that you can call into along your route to work: searching for ‘self storage near me’ using your home or current location might not show you the places that are easiest for you to reach.
Alternatively, you can browse a list of all of our locations, which are organised by region and city. Clicking on or selecting a region, city or town will bring up a local map or a list of all of the Safestore storage units nearest to your chosen location, ordered by distance. That way, you don’t need a particular postcode and can see at a glance which of our self storage locations would be most convenient for you.
It is quick and easy to get a quote and our simple booking process means that it takes only a few minutes for you to reserve a storage unit that is the right size and in the best location for you. We do not charge booking fees and no deposit is required when you book.
