At this point I would recommend Safestore. They dealt efficiently and with understanding with our problem of a non-working lift.

I was let down by the company I normally use to store items and was in a bind. I rang the head office team for safestore and the advisor was amazing. He confirmed that the Bedford branch was open until 6pm, they had 24hr access and even gave me a quote for the unit I needed. Went down to the local office and within 20 minutes I had access to my unit.

Would highly recommend!
