Serkan, Wood Green, was knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and friendly. It was a busy Sunday and he was alone. He made time to support and advise, and to clarify things.

Can't fault the service provided at safestore in high Wycombe. The manager (think her name was Danielle) was fantastic. Got me in on the same day to the space I wanted. Great offer price and fair price after that.

Jo at Colchester was very accommodating. She made us feel welcome and showed us around with a smile always. Jo took a particular liking to my boyfriend which he was very pleased about.

The local store guys are well-trained, highly attentive, and conscientious. Safestore hiring practices appear excellent.

Your people’s impediment however appears to be the combination of a primitive and highly rigid head office / company infrastructure, a fastidious rule-based culture, and a lack of autonomy and decision-making at the front lines.

This combination results in a bureaucratic, inflexible, and contentious experience for your customers.
