The latest survey by the UK Self Storage Association shows a 7% drop in the number of people who have little or no knowledge of our industry (down to 55% from 62%). The drop is good news – but that still means there’s a whole-lotta people who don’t know much about storing.
Perhaps they all live in the country or have big houses with lots of loft space or hidden subterranean extensions. Or maybe it’s just a fear of the unknown. If you’re new to it our beginners guide will help you understand the basics – but if you’re just in dire need of extra storage space then this blog is for you…
So you need storage, and you need it urgently? Here’s how to get it.
How much Space do you need?
First, estimate the square footage of the space you’ll need. Remember that your space will be a store room, not living room – so you can stack your things too – which means you’ll fit more in than you think. If you haven’t a clue then check out our space estimator tool – it’s designed to help you. If you’re still at a loss – call your nearest branch and one of our sales advisors. They’re like the Jedi of the Self Storage world, highly trained operatives able to help you simply and effectively.

Once you know how much room you’re going to need, request a quote. You can do that in three simple steps on our website – just specify your requirements, give us some basic personal details and we’ll send you a quote by email and/or text.
If you’d rather speak to a real friendly human our talented Jedi-esque advisors are always happy to help with that bit too. In truth – you’ll be able to do the whole lot in one phone call.
Better than anything though, pop-in if you’re passing. It’s only by experiencing the ABC difference that you’ll really get to appreciate our warm, friendly welcome and unrivalled expertise.
If you like the sound of the quote (it’s often less than people are expecting), you can book online straight away using a credit or debit card to reserve your unit. It’s much the same as reserving a hotel room. We don’t bill you until your first day storing – so you’ve not got anything to lose if you change your mind or need to cancel before you move-in.
We try really hard to ensure we offer the best vale self storage in London – but our Price Promise is worth knowing about if you find cheaper. It’s essence: if you find a better like-for-like quote, we promise to match it. Remember it’s like-for-like – so compare our terms and conditions – not all are the same. When the time comes for you to move out we’ll always refund any days you’ve paid for but haven’t used. We also require no notice on move out – so – in the unlikely event that you want to (or you just need to), you can rock up, empty your unit and move out on the same day, with no penalty notice fee.
