How it works
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.
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).
Most people arrange their own removals; however we are more than happy to arrange all aspects of your move.
You have to sign a standard storage agreement.
We think so!
You can, but you can’t overnight there!
Our opening hours are Monday – Friday 09.00 – 17.30, Saturday 09.00 – 17.00. We are closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Monitored CCTV, burglar and fire alarms together with alarm activation response patrols.
Garda and Revenue officials have statutory powers granting them access to all units subject to appropriate warrants etc.
Yes. There are all individually alarmed, with 24/7 monitoring and extensive additional security features.
It’s strange that you’re asking that. But yes they can, upon presentation of a valid search warrant.
Not internally. All corridors and entrance/exit points are monitored by CCTV.
Some do, but not as a rule. For long term customers, we can provide power to individual units.
Our storage units
Yes, we require 7 days’ notice to vacate.
Nothing that’s perishable or illegal!
Depends on the apartment, but assuming you need all the contents stored (e.g. bed, table, chairs etc) somewhere around a 50 – 75 sq ft unit should suffice.
Generally, around 150 sq ft for an average-sized 3 bed. Don’t forget that you can have a 1,000 sq ft 3 bed, or a 2000 sq ft 3 bed. Again, the best solution is to call, pop in, or at least look at our size estimator.

Our smallest space is a locker suitable for around 3 suitcases; our largest will hold the entire contents of a 4 bedroom home. See the size estimator to get a better idea of the various different sized units.
