I think some key points should be highligted on the website I had to pay 3x more than what I expected as I didn't know there were other sub charges as I reserved my unit online and according to the website it's £13 and some pence per week but anyway James was very helpful and understanding ..

Thank you for your feedback Mrs Jobe,

I'm sorry to hear of some confusion you may have found once you booked your storage unit online.
We do not include insurance on our prices online as we find that all our customers needs are unique so they will need different values of insurance cover. It is mentioned on the website during the booking process that this price doesn't include our Insurance and our Security Deposit.

As I'm sure you are aware by now we do also charge a 2 week deposit for your room hire which is fully refundable once you have finished storing with us.

I am glad our experienced manager, James, was able to help you throughout this process and that he was understanding too.

If you need anything else while storing with us please just ask James or a member of his teams for assistance.

Kind Regards

Very good service from the team at the Cow Lane site. Showed me a few options so I could see which unit suited me rather than just saying what square footage was available. Good access to the unit too!

The staff member who dealt with us (husband, son and me), was extremely helpful. He showed us two rooms of the approximate size we thought we needed so we could judge which was most suitable for us. He took time to read through all the relevant items in the contract and was polite and informative at all times. I was also very impressed with how clean the whole place was, it practically shone. I thought the charges reasonable and would not hesitate to recommend Safestore to anyone looking for a storage unit.

Good Morning Mr Chick, thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to read that Steve and his team at Safestore Reading provided a friendly level of service and were able to ensure they got the right size room for you to meet your self storage needs. In term of incentives to retain your custom, this is certainly something we do offer, and you should have been made aware of. I have asked the team to give you a call today to ensure you are fully aware of what these offers are. Thank you

No flatbed trucks available for longer items. I signed up with safestore to store some guitars, keyboards, amps, etc. The available truck was not even able to accommodate a guitar case lying down lengthways due to the truck having fixed uprights at both ends. So we had to lug most of the kit by hand. I have used a few other storage places (Access, Shurguard, etc) and never had this problem. It's unlikely I'll use Safestore again if they can't provide more sensible trucks.

Good Morning Mr France, thank you for your feedback. I do apologise that we have not made moving your belongings into and out of your room easy, due to the style of trolleys we have in use. I have spoken to Steve our Store Manager at Safestore Reading to see what options we have to make this work for you, and I will be looking into acting on this as soon as possible. Thank you.
