Dealing with Jo has been a blessing. She has been amazing with helping me through a very tough time, explaining everything thoroughly. I could not recommend Colchester Safestore enough, especially Jo (she's a diamond!).

The storage facility itself is perfect, air conditioned, clean and easy to navigate!
