Very expensive and not accommodating at all. I am still waiting for a refund after I leaving the unit and giving them them the requested notice. Someone had access to my storage, found all my suitcases open and everything on the floor..

Super quick and easy. Booked on the Saturday and the staff emailed me over all the paperwork the same day so I could access the Sunday. Loads of parking space and has always been quiet so I can get parked close to the trolleys are.

Very happy with the service given, from the initial inquiry made to the day we moved our furniture into the unit.
The removal team had traveled a distance resulting in an overnight stay with the vehicle, advice was given to the removal men as where to park and local facilities.
The whole storage area was very clean,with Covid-19 restrictions respected.
All in all very pleased with the service and staff.
