Poor

If it wasn't for the excellent young woman working there, it would have been 1 star. The product service offer is frankly, an exploitative con. Failure to guarantee price on a daily basis? That's appalling

Chris at Fort Kinnaird branch was really helpful, patient and accommodating, helping to ensure I got the right storage for my needs. Third time we have used the facility over the years. Great service and so easy to use.

Very angry with this company. They quote you online one price that you agree too only to be told when you get there you have to pay insurance too which is more then insuring a house?

The whole process of booking the storage, viewing it and moving my items in was very easy and seamless. The staff I spoke with were really friendly and efficient and the cost of the storage I think is excellent value for money. I would recommend using Safestore to anyone

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback on our Pennywell Road Store. Its great to hear you received a friendly service. Emily Cooke, Safestore
Poor

The unit originally allocated to me was very far away from an external access door and my removal men refused to use it because it was so far. The staff would not allow access via a fire exit which would have made access easy. Alternative units were available but the staff did not know where they were and did not have a map of the premises so we had to visit all 3 on foot to see how far from an access point they were. We did manage to find an alternative unit for which i am grateful however it took about an hour.
Not until i signed the contract did i see that the storage fees increased massively after 6 months. This had not been explained to me and I believe i was misled. I believe the staff were new.
