I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
