The Pay Less for Storage Story

Established in 2001 – we were one of the first self storage companies in the North East

family storage business

Pay Less for Storage was established in 2001 by Martin Wallace, as one of the first container storage companies in the North East and has since become one of the most reputable container self storage companies in both the North East and now North West of England.

With multiple facilities spanning across the UK  we have assisted countless families move home, while also catering to thousands of businesses across the country with their individual storage needs.

The UK storage industry is facing a significant challenge – very high prices. Large national chains are often responsible for this issue due to their costly buildings and high head office expenses. Storage is often very expensive. And it simply doesn’t have to be.

We pride ourselves on providing clean, dry space that is secure.

And providing that quality storage product at an affordable monthly price.
