Stored for 2 years at our Washington storage site

Absolutely first class service. Great, secure facilities and Andrew was extremely helpful. I’ll be sure to use these facilities again should I require there service.

Stored for 10 months at our Killingworth storage site

We rented a unit for 10 months whilst we went backpacking. The price is extremely competitive compared to the large national companies. The staff are also extremely helpful, they were spot on every step of the way and everything was always sorted very quickly and efficiently. We would definitely use them in the future 🙂
