About Our Facility
Why are you better than the rest?
We’re the best self storage facility in South-west Cambridgeshire. Whilst being the cleanest & easiest to you, there’s no other self storage facility between Peterborough, Cambridge & Bedford, that offers purpose built, fully secure, ventilated units, with complete independent customer access – at guaranteed low prices.
Whilst other local places may claim to offer ‘self storage’ it’s often the case that you’re actually unable to access your items independently. Shipping containers and wooden crates are inferior storage options, as they offer little or no ventilation – which is really the key to quality self storage. This is explained in further detail in self storage for beginners.
When can I arrange to view your facility?
Viewings are available when arranged by appointment, during our office hours which are Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm, and Saturday 9am – 1pm. We can sometimes arrange viewings on week day evenings, subject to availability and by request. Please call us to arrange your appointment.
Are the storage units heated?
Our rooms are not heated. However the temperature within our stores is ambient, notwithstanding the season. Our buildings are insulated so that our stores are never too hot or cold.
What security do you have?
- 24 hour megapixel CCTV located inside and outside the main building, monitoring all entrances and exits
- Top of the range alarm systems for the building and one for each individual storage room
- Coded electronic access to the building allowing access only with your own personal access code (gate, shutters and entrance doors)

- Management live 50 metres from storage facility

Can I transfer to another unit if I find I have too much or too little space?
You are welcome to move to another size unit at any time, up or down size and as often as you see necessary. The minimum notice period applies to downsizing.
Do I have to reserve a room?
You need to talk to us first. Depending on availability, you can visit us by making an appointment and move-in immediately afterwards. To be assured of a specific sized room, it’s advisable to reserve your room in advance of when you wish to start storing.
Do I pay weekly or monthly?
We charge on a calendar monthly basis, payable in advance, on or before the first day of each month. Charging ‘per calendar month’ is obviously the equivalent of 12 payments per year – and is different to most other self storage providers which usually quote ‘per week’ and then charge you every 4 weeks – which is the equivalent of 13 payments per year.

We offer a number of initial payment options including credit card, debit card, or direct bank transfer. All further calendar monthly payments are made by standing order.
How long can I use self storage?
You’re welcome to stay for one month, 6 months, 2 years – or for as long as you require.
What can I store?
You can store almost anything in our self storage units. The only exceptions are;
- Living items – such as animals & plants
- Hazardous materials – such as flammable liquids and explosives
- Items that could decompose – such as exposed foodstuffs
- Unauthorised or illegal goods – such as firearms, drugs etc.
