Yes, you certainly can!

Hiring a self storage container is ideal when downsizing if you’ve got more stuff than you can accommodate in your new home, but aren’t quite ready for a cull.

Just store the belongings you know you’re not going to need every day and then take your time deciding what stays and what goes.

You can hire a container for however long you need it. Our minimum hire period is just two weeks. You also don’t need to worry about opening hours. Our sites have 24/7 access.

All of our containers are ground-level which makes it easier to load and unload directly into them, you don’t have cart things around.

If you’re not sure what size of container you’re going to need, you’ll find a handy guide here.
