This page provides help with the most common questions Storage World and our facilities, if you can’t find the answer you are looking for, get in touch.

How it works

How does self-storage work?

Self-storage centres offer numerous different sized, own door storage units. From 10 sq ft to 400 sq ft. Only you have the key. Each unit is separately alarmed, and the facilities have 24/7 monitored CCTV, burglar and fire alarms.

How do you calculate storage unit size?

The sizes are based on feet squared, rather than feet cubed (too confusing for most people, us included!). For example, a 50 sq ft unit is 5 feet wide, by 10 feet long. All room heights are more or less the same (7 feet).

How do people get their things to Storage World?

Most people arrange their own removals; however we are more than happy to arrange all aspects of your move.
